Nice box, what's in it?
|Some sort of jig-saw puzzle...|
Last night it was time to do the install in my cold and dark garage. First up I had to pull bits off...
|Even the dash had to be unbolted|
My issue was that I have the Yamaha wind deflectors fitted and they aren't really compatible with the SW-Motech bracket...Well, I was having none of that. What I had to do was drill out the front mounting holes on the deflectors to accept the larger bolt that would go right through into the GPS bracket - scary stuff! But, you know what? It worked.
The next little issue was the crappy plastic (!) bolts used to screw the deflectors on. Due to the front bolt on the deflectors being very solid it was a little hard to line up the other bolts and the stupid plastic screws got a hiding. I lucked out and found 4 similar sized allen head bolts in my "spares". These went in sweet as. The plastic ones ended up somewhere else...

|probably should tidy the bench up one day...|
It is not quite as bad as that last photo shows. In my normal sitting position it is just the very top line of the Tenere's screen which is a little hard to read. The GPS is also not quite at the best angle for viewing.
However, it will do for now and I have an idea on how to get it sitting in a better position - watch this space...
