I would really like to see a how to video on Replacing Original radio to an upgrade and How to change air shocks.

With the ones that you are doing is there a way to fix a hole in the inside of the side saddle bags?

there is.

first where is the hole?

how bad is it

The trick I uses is M.E.K and Lego's or abs pipe. remove the bag. there are four bolts. two on the sides and two on the floor. and undo the connection to the main harness.

With the abs pipe you can get a large one 3" or 4" round and cut it to the length of the saddlebag. and cut it so its like a C.
Heat it in the oven to flatten it. letting cool fully when flat
then make a template of the floor with the carpet only slightly larger and make sure you mark where the bolts are. to cut access holes in the new floor.
cut and shape the abs plastic to the size of the floor template and then sand and trim till it fits perfectly.
clean the floor with alcohol. make sure there in no grease of other crap on the floor sand it a little if needed to help clean it
rough up the floor with a low grit sand paper and paint the floor with M.E.K as well as the back bottom of the Abs plastic sheet.
let them sit for a few min to soften. try to scrap the both a little you want it to be soft.
Press the two together and weight it down real good.
after 24 hrs the new floor is solid.

another way is to soak real lego's overnight in a sealed jar of M.E.K till it is as thick as honey.
Clean the floor then paint it with M.E.K real well let it sit a few min to get soft you want to be able to scrape the abs with little effort then poor in the abs slurry you made in thin coats. filling the (make sure you paint the hole with M.E.K )hole first and smoothing it real well. and let it dry fully.
poor in thin coats repeating the painting with M.E.K till you have it as thick as you want.
the thin coats allow for full drying with out bubbles and help to build a strong bond. when your done its like it never happened.
Note
make sure you do this in a well ventilated area and where a respirator.
