That is a great setup. It's a PITA seeing the turn signals and getting the key in and out, especially with 2 in bar risers.

So would you wire that to work with the stock tail light, or remove the stock tail light and cover the hole in the fender?

Nice work. That dash looks sweet. Could we get a front pic. I would like to see the screen you are using. Thanks Joe

Later I made an aluminum dash to hold switches,LEDs,etc.



I mounted the 12v outlet on the side,out of the way. You can see the two bolts in the bracket,indicating how the fairing is tilted forward.



I've had this set up for over a year and it has done very well.

Do you have a pic of it on yet? Wanna pull the trigger on it, but would like to see it on first. Bought a Motomule Trailer from Mrbracket (Mike) here in Springfield. Need to eliminate the extra fender extender thingy, (Sorry don't know what it's called real name), on my DR. The trailer will work with it on there, but only lifts 3 feet off ground, then hits fender. This is the cheapest option I've seen.

Me and bike are 4th pic down on this link. The trailer is frickin schweet. Got a 3 week Colorado trip planned in July and I can even carry Ice for drinks in the trailer.

Thanks John

The rmz 250 tube works as a quick throttle. Just carve the stop block back to allowfull throttle

I believe its reasonably straight forward to fit it to a DR keeping the stock light and brackets.

I decided to pimp it up and go for twin lights which are just 70mm lights I bought at a local auto store.
Holy shit so it uses the DR mounting hardware out of the box? What else did you tweak to make it fit? How do you like it?

What's the 10.2 readout about?

seat removal/ swap

Brackets and rubber bumpers will cost $35 ~ $40 from Suzuki dealer, as best as I can remember. Yes, it's nice to be able to swap seats quick & easy.
To remove seat without removing side panels, I drill large holes ( 1 inch?) in the side panels over the area of the seat bolts. I carry the little Cruz Tool in my kit. A Cruz Tool socket with some poster-tack stuck in it to hold the bolt from dropping into some infinite cavity where you'll never find it, reaches in there to tighten or loosen the seat. Bingo. It's nice to be able to access the battery, etc., trail-side without removing the side panels.
I like what BergDonk did with extended bolts. "I made up some long bolts that go through the sidecovers. Means the seat comes on and off without anything else being touched. They do double duty as a mounting point for my occasional water carriers." A long bolt with tubing-as- spacer would do it, make it even easier to get the bolt on/off, could double as a bungie strap anchor.
