    Hey guys.....new owner here(2014 Silver)...

    I purchased the gps connector kit, and wondering if removing the entire fairing is the only way to get at the main harness connection. I woudn't even know where to start to remove that fairing :-)

    Thanks !

    I better dedicate a day to that....looks like it could take some time and patience ! Thanks so much for the write up.

    But really you would think Triumph could make the GPS connector kit just a bit more plug and play ?

    Thank Coconut for the writeup. I used it too, to wire in my RG bars, GPS and dual horn. Yes, it will take some time, but it helps you get familiar with the bike. Kinda tough to think about doing such to a nice shinny new bike, isn't it?

    Yeah, I said the same thing here. But if you are thinking about doing other work to the bike, such as crash bars or horns, do it all while you have the fairing off.  I've heard of others wiring in the GPS  without removing the entire  fairing, but you will have to ask them what they did. I think they get to the audio and power cable somehow below the left console and also work behind the left mirror.

    Oh, and I forgot to say:

    If you are just looking for the wiring harness, you can access the wiring by just removing the left side turn signal housing.  A little tight but you can do it.  If you are installing the optional factory GPS bracket you need to remove the dash pod, which I felt was more tedious than the faring removal.

    Agreed. Taking off the left side mirror and pulling the storage compartment gave me enough room to get to the connectors and run the GPS wiring up to my handlebar where I installed my GPS.

    As well as Coconut's great instructions the service manual gives clear descriptions on how to open stuff up.

    Agreed.  My dealer installed the bracket, but didn't connect the audio out wire so I removed the dash and made the connection without removing the faring.  Removing the dash is not very difficult, but a bit tedious...
