There is a more detailed explanation somewhere in the archives but here are the pics again:
Looking down from above after removing the gauges, windscreen, and middle light.
The lense of the middle light after I cut out the plastic backing with a razor blade...be careful.
Looking at the area from sitting on the seat, gauges are removed
Radar detector hard wired to the electrical system of the bike and with the speaker wire for the earpiece taped up where it won't come loose. I used the electrical wire that use to lead to the middle light for the power source. It even has a quick connect and is connected to the fuse box. I soldered the wire to the detector instead of using the plug in because of space considerations.
Looking down at the detector installed and held in place by velcro. It is very secure and I can still reach the buttons by feel once the windscreen is in place and the gauges are back on. I can even change from city to highway mode while I'm riding with one hand. Just have to get use to where the buttons are by feel. Even with gloves on.
Ran the speaker wire under the tank and up through the edge of the "ashtray". I dremelled the edge of the ashtraya little so it would be smooth and wouldn't cut the wire and it wouldn't make it bend so much. It sticks out of the ashtray about 12 inches. The speaker in my helmet is wedged in where the chin strap is attached near the ear. The wire in my helmet hangs out about 24 inches. You need to have at least this much total so you can move around and turn your head. You never even feel the wire when your riding.
The view from the front. Can you see the detector inside the middle light? It is permanently attached and you never have to remove it. I just put a towel over it when I'm washing my bike and don't spray water directly at it. I don't worry about someone stealing it because no one knows its there. It works very good and has no let me down yet. It is by far the best modification I have done to my bike. I can't even imagine riding without it. How in the world can you possibly avoid tickets without one?<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT="
