Yeah, definitely an afterthought on Honda's part.I installed my optimate 1 duo unit during the week and what a pain that battery box is to install anything in it!
Probably that is because the tools are stored there so clipping on with the added weight it may come adrift. I suppose for the North American contingent that don't get the tools it would have been better clipped.Yeah, definitely an afterthought on Honda's part.
They could have just put a wheezy plastic cover over the electrically sensitive area, but elected to "secure it" this way instead. I suppose a better approach out of these two.
The crash (fall over) bars are Touratech. It all worked out as I wanted. I built some backers out of heavy plastic on the lower end of the bars to help prevent the bags from squishing through the larger opening and hitting the side panels in case of a fall. Seems they will work out well. I also put a single clamp at the top of the bars to "trap" the bags single top strap as that strap had an inclination to creep to the rear due to the slope of the bars.I've like those. What bars are they on? SW-M?
Can you give some details on when the lever is installed on the bike?
Not really sure what you are meaning. It is back on the bike but never took a picture, can do so later if you want.Can you give some details on when the lever is installed on the bike?
