Which speakers did you put in the gauge holes?

DK,
Below the front mount inside of the fairing are two small holes. Thru those, use a 1/4 inch drive socket with a 1/8th socket. The headlight mounts in 3 places, and the lower two mounts are studs that are cut in a hex to allow you to aim the headlight. At least up and down. Sounds complicated, but the alternative is to remove 10 fasteners, and the lower mounting bolts, turn signals, and then pull the outer fairing. The headlights mounting studs will be easy to get to, and you can screw them in or out. Then put it all back together. Easy to do, but time consuming. I have done it easily a dozen times. Pm me if you need help. Joe

road rod stuff

found the adjusters thanks, Capn. will take a socket and adjust on way home tonight. (BTW mine are 3/16) 34.8 mpg not to bad BMW was 42 to 44 depending on throttle urgency, I have to admit I was seeing how this one runs so next mileage should be a little better. Actually this is no slouch. probably rattled some windows with those rhineharts, man they are loud, may have to tone that down a bit.

Chrome Road Rod update

bought a windshield for the winter from baggers-only on ebay, added chrome levers and reservoir covers, luggage rack and mini-backrest, larger tank, have 13.5 shocks coming so I can use all of the tires before the rhineharts touch. Have guard dawg coming from Rowland, adding illumabezel as I need to replace front headlight cover anyway (tabs broken) updated pic

FLTR headlight adjustment procedure is sorta weird. Still have my Service Manual so if anybody wants the procedure I can scan it in and e-mail it. Adjuster hexes on '03s are 4.5mm, btw. ... dave

road rod improvements.

headlight adjustment, for those of us who don't have the 4.5 mm socket which is .177 the .187 3/16 seems to work. The conversion kit only allows use of the two lower adjuster holes I thought there was an upper one but its covered by the bracket. Would not mind seeing the procedure just to know though. Put the 13.5 inch progressives on like them much better as far as cornering clearance and ride. The clear advantage integrated tailight makes the rear turn signals more apparent to others also. Putting the illumabezel on in the next day or so will post pics of front and rear when its done.

Pics of bracket on bike?

Can anyone post a picture of the bracket on the tree from the fairing for me please? Mine seems to move quite a bit and I wonder if my adjustment bolt is wacky...

Not sure how you want the pic of the bracket, but on mine the bracket that the airbox cover prongs go through was loose and if you look down from there the plate it attaches to has allen screws in it that were loose also. the set screw that goes against the fork tube was also not touching anything so the whole thing bounced in the wind when I got it. tightening everything up and loctite on most of the fasteners has fixed all of that.

Well, I have the bolt on the front bracket and it would seem that it will drill into the frame and cause damage. I put a nut on there so that the bolt won't dig but I dunno if it is the best way. I am considering removing the fairing and going over it all to see if there is a better way to engineer so was looking for pictures of what everyone else had and see if I am missing anything to start with.

I didn't think about Loctite, THANKS for that!

Yeah, mine bounced when I got it so I put the nut on the bolt and now it bangs over bumps - likely due to it getting loose from no Loctite.
