Chrome Tank & Speedo Trim

Time: 5 minutes
Tools needed: 6mm hex key, 10mm box wrench

instructions:
Remove rear bolt from pillion seat and lift off seat.
Remove the 2 bolts in rear tab of rider saddle & lift off saddle





Next I took off the speedo console..
Time: 2 minutes
Tools needed: 3mm hex key

instructions:
Remove bolts from speedo console (2 at front corners, 1 at bottom of console). lift up, push back rubber housing covering plug for wiring. Depress tab on top of wiring harness plug while pulling on plug & remove



To install my chrome tank trim.
Time: 20 minutes
Tools needed: small flat-bladed screwdriver, hair dryer, tinsnips

Instructions:
Use screwdriver to prise apart channel in chrome trim & attach at tank seam under saddle first.
Continue to push trim onto tank seam, heating the trim with the hairdryer to bend more easily around curves and
corners.
finish under other side of saddle, and use tin snips to cut to length



Looks much more finished now!



I had enough left over to finish the edge of the speedo console as well.
Time: 15 minutes
Tools needed & instructions:
Same as tank trim above



I think it looks pretty damn sweet!

I agree, I bought my trim for less than £6 and it took ten min's to do.
