Remove Tupperware Permanently?

Postby suvcw04 » Sun Apr 24, 2011 6:29 pm



Just curious. Has anyone removed most or all of the tupperware on a GL1500 (or any enclosed model) and ridden it that way for an extended period. If so, what are the good, the bad and the ugly of riding this way?

Just stripping the plastic the ugly is obvious. Have a look here. Scroll to 13th post and after.

I would think that a lot of expensive "stuff" would obviously be more exposed to the elements, in which case if they weren't designed for it, you could have less than positive experiences 'down the road'. Maybe not. ?

Never thought of that, but you're probably right. Lots of wiring and connectors that would never see the light of day before, would be exposed to UV sun and the elements.
