Just wanted to share some mods , the trunk removal, led puddle lights and some carbon fiber vinyl.
I think some videos out there like max maccalister are a bit overrated. They actually scare you. I learnt that if you take you time it's actually not difficult at all. If something is not fitting sung it usually means that something is in the way like a harness, etc.
I was not left with an extra screw or push pin.
If anyone is thinking about taking on the job of adding accessories, I say do it with confidence. I am like a 1 out 10 diy guy, so if I can do it anyone can. This was also my first time attempting vynal wrapping. Some pics of the bike stripped and complete. Enjoy.

Nicely done. The carbon fiber is it a wrap or actual replacement parts?

Looks nice, especially the lower bag trim. What shield are you using? Can you post a few shots of the overall bike from a further distance? Great job.

Looks nice. You may want to upgrade your phone to a better camera
C'mon man...this dude posts pics of his bike that others may want to see and maybe do the same thing...and your response to him is to get a better camera??

Not very cool IMO

RE: The 16" w/s. Will it go high enough for you to look thru it if for whatever reason the need arose?
I had the screen in its highest position and I can just look over it, but even if you are shorter and look through it, you can see fine. I know its tinted, but it must be like a 15% tint, because even at night it seems clear enough.
I am 166cm tall

Btw I forgot to mention I also installed the optional usb cable. It works great because you could have the i phone connected to the one, which will activate car play and you can have a memory stick or even a 2nd phone connected to the 2nd usb. For only a few dollars, that 2nd usb is a great accessory.

For carbon fibre. You may want to consider this process

I’ve done it on a few pieces. You can see my bike on Traxxion Dynamics YouTube site. White DCT video.


I have a few more areas that I will be getting done this winter.

Nice work on your modified Airbag Tour. I’m considering removing my trunk on the White Tour.
