New to this so hope it works

Ok the first thing I did was get a set of kuryakyn transformer grips put on

The next thing I did was I sanded and then painted my headlight, and speedo cover.

Then I removed my brake light assembly and cut it just below the brake light. Trimmed the steel plate in behind and reinstalled it

I then picked up some 1/8 inch steel and made up a side mount license plate. I ordered a set of kuryakyn led license plate bolt lights. I cut the
wiring off of the old plate light and wired the bolts to it that way I could use the factory wiring clip

The last thing that I have done so far is to relocate the horn and install the rad cover. I relocated the horn inside the rad cover

Good job, looking great!!!

How did you remove stock grips?

Any tips for removing headlight, speedo cover? What materials used for sanding/painting?

You can always come down to Miami Beach and do it for me 8) :eek: 8)

Thank you I am loving the look. I cheated with the stock grips I still hadn't picked up my bike from the dealer when my grips arrived. So they installed them for me. The speedo cover was fairly straight forward. The headlight i used a small screwdriver to pry the lamp out after i took the screws out in order to get at the bolts inside. I used a small rubber hammer to tap it back in place after it was done. I used a 800 grit wet or dry sandpaper and a couple of cans of Krylon flat black spray paint. See how it holds up this summer might end up taking it all off in the fall and spraying them with an automotive paint. lol well I haven't made it to miami beach yet but you will be waiting awhile until I get there. It's a long ride

Ddonto: Great Job. Question; How did you cut out the rear extras under the break light? Looks like a nice clean job. Not as rough cutting as others I've seen.

I used a band saw to cut as close to it as I could. Then I took a file and smoothed it out and gave it a light sanding to clean it up.

Sorry I haven't been on much the last couple of weeks. There are 2 bolts holding the headlight assembly in the bucket. One on either side remove both of them. Then take a flat screwdriver and there is a slot on the bottom on the headlight. Gently pry the headlight apart from the bucket. Inside the bucket there are 3 screws holding the bucket to the bike remove these and feed the wires threough the back and you should be good to go
