Re: K1200LT XM radio installation
The first time you take the tupperware off, you'll take way too much time. It gets a lot faster after that! Just get the proper torx fittings for an electric screwdriver, and it'll come apart fast!
When screwing it back together, make sure torque setting on said electric screwdriver is set very low...
Also, it is a lot faster to remove lower fairing if you take the metal crash bar off, after you've gotten the plastic cover off of it.
You can route wires up to the front without removing the upper fairing, but it's kind of hard to describe how to snake the wires under the right side of the stingray without actually showing you. A coat hanger works for snaking it through, just over the gas tank, but under the tupperware.
I learned this little trick at a tech session. Keep your eyes open for one nearby - they are priceless!
