I am installing a CB and I need help in removing the shell from around the gas tank so I can route the wiring harness. I have already removed the plastic from around the speakers. I do not have a service manual. Any help is appreciated.
Can't help you much as you really need a book. I know it can be installed without removing the front half, you just have to lift it up to make a plug in. Wish I could help more, but I'm sure you will get the help you need very soon from this board. Good luck. Take your time.
I was able to install the C.B with only minor difficulty. The hardest part was getting the faring to line up correctly during reassembly. Best of all no C.B. error message. Now just need to find somebody to talk to.
CB install is a piece of cake it you follow the instructions and use the service manual.
Drilling the hole in the trunk is easy if you use the right size (5/8"??) wood "paddle" bit, then use a little Vaseline on the grommet.
The hardest part for me was finding the connection under the top-shelter. If I remember correctly the instructions showed it on the opposite side from where I found it. The darn connector looks like it is already plugged into something.
One key fact hasn't been mentioned, if you are going to do any work on your bike, you really need to get a factory service manual, it is available at reasonable cost from the sponsor of this board, Honda Direct Line.
It pays for itself the first time you use it! :s27:
