Re: Rattle

my rattle turned out to be the trunk lid hinges. used some draft sealing foam ( comes in a roll w/ sticky adhesive) and placed it inside the hinge while open.. have to replace it every so often as the foam compresses .

Re: Aftermarket Fog/Driving Lights

if you remove the chin cowl you'll find the connectors with plastic plug covers in them. the switch will go in the left side cover next to the hazard switch

Re: Dash Removal

the speaker grill is one piece and will pop off from its grommet pins. start low at the key hole and pull upand then one by one release the grill. you'll need to disconnect the tweeter wires and the large connector for the display in the housing. very easy.

Re: 2012 cb operating manual/instructions

you need to havea cb installed on the bike to use it. honda stopped putting them in after a certain year. it then became an "accessory" part that yo need to add.if you only have one anteena ( on the right side of trunk) then you dont have a cb installed, its plug-and-play once you have it.

Re: PHONE QUESTION?

Once installed, you can listen to am/fm, intercom, Xbox,etc as normal. If you receive a call, those are muted and you push the button on the supplied controller. Once done with the call all functions are resumed. Install isn’t bad as the unit mounts under the left storage box.
