Apparently I wasn't paying enough attention, The very last screw had a long shoulder and the remaining hole required a screw with a short shoulder. Tomorrow I get to remove the plastic again to see where I screwed up. I think I know where. I hope.
ARCHYMAN;

Run it to the same problem: which screw goes where...

In the link below if you check the part you are trying to fix you will find the appropriate screw in the listing and its attachment point.

I printed the complete set of all fairing parts and now, when in doubt I only have to check the drawings where I marked red the long neck screws.

The risers don't bind the cables but just barely on the left side. YMMV if BMW's cable lengths vary a bit.

I would post pics but these are the prototype that's polished aluminum and black bolts. The production version will be brushed chrome with matching bolts.

Chris, Pres. of Rox said the production version should be available July 1.

That works. It also works if you pay attention to what you are doing. The two screws that go in the beak use the long shoulder because of extra thickness around the attachment point. I wasn't paying attention and used a short shouldered screw on one side. Problem resolved and now, because of the problem, I'll never forget which goes where.

Today I finished up adding the fuzeblock and powering the things controlled by the fuzeblock. I have fog lights...



and the fuzeblock install looks like this:



Note the covered SAE pigtail. That is always hot for things like battery charger, air pump, what-have-you.

The gory details are at http://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gsw/2013/0718-fuzeblock/

I don't know about that fender extender. It looks weird. And its 80 bucks. The Fenda Extenda is 30 and looks less weird

How about an overall pic with it? Maybe then it'll blend better. Close up photos make it look like it doesn't blend with the lines of the bike.

Took the hacksaw to the old backrest form my Adventure. Purchased the Touratech rack extender and strapped on the backrest. Wife loves it. Comes off very easily.

Are you planning on pulling the tank? Once I got the tank off of mine it was pretty easy to route the wires.
I've never had trouble running wires once the tupperware is removed.

My big question right now is where to tap into for the relay trigger without bothering the canbus. Is there anything under the seat that would work, or do I need to go to the headlight as suggested?

Will the tail light feed work or because it is one of the "safety" circuits it will raise problems with CANBUS ??

On the GSW there is a simple tap for a relay trigger under the saddle that is switched with the ignition. I only went to the headlight because I prefer to delay farkle power until after the bike is started.

Anyway, you've two fuses under the saddle. The red w/brown trace coming from the 7.5 amp fuse is easy to get at. That idea came from the instruction for the P3 lights from Skene design.
