Hidden Pocket Surprise

Post by patbrandon1 »



While I was doing a bit of work on my 87 Interstate I found an interesting pocket under the left fairing pocket. Mine is a snap on covered one. When I took out the pocket, (four screws) I saw a little tiny pocket hooked to the side that I hadn't ever seen. I've had it off several times and just never saw it.

All you more smartified folks out there may already know it's there, but it sure surprised me. Inside it were 2 spare fuses. One 3 amp, and one 5 amp. I added two 10 amp, and two 5 amp. That's about all it holds.

Anybody else ever see it before?

Yes it is. That's what I thought I would find in it when I looked. That or a million dollars would have been sweet. :D

As long as you hide a phillips screw driver someplace. :lol:

I zip-tied a key to top side pf a baffle plate between the fork legs up in the lower edge of the fairing like, I think I even told the buyer where it was. :shock:

Well, that is an easy one, its the spare fuse holder and it looks like a past owner taped it inside the fairing pocket. I have 3 or 4 of them little bags with a few sized fuses in them but I keep them in a bag that will go under the seat on the bike once the rebuild is complete.
