Last Night After Work

Post by speedy1 » Mon Feb 06, 2012 8:47 am

Came in from work yesterday evening and decided to do a little work on the bike. Yes this was after having supper, can't work on empty stomach. The goal was to install the headlight modulator that came in Saturday and a learning experience too. Take laptop with me as I start because I have downloaded instructions from here.... Found that PO had done a little rigging in there that I had to sort out, but I do know that my headlight adjuster does work even though I thought it was broken. Plug and play on the modulator and that job was done......EXCEPT, I couldn't make my self drill a hole in the dash to put the photo eye. I had talked myself into doing it, but with drill in hand I couldn't. So now I must find another place.... Anyway thanks to all you guys and gals for all the tutorials on this site, I have an almost complete project without pitfalls.. :D

I mounted my modulator photo eye in the plastic piece that kinda comes to a point at the top left of the shelter piece that covers the ignition switch area.

My wife's bike doesn't have a fairing, so I zip-tied the photo eye to some cables leading down from the handlebars.
