Its Here
« on: June 17, 2013, 10:06:54 PM »
Its finally here thought last week would last for ages!!!

Nearly 50 and felt like a kid waiting for Xmas to come!!

1st drive home from the dealers circa 60 miles

Very pleased amazed how light the bike feels once on the move

Had the sat nav mount fixed by the dealer wired to ignition fine but they havent connected the audio out Grrrrrrr
Does anyone know if its an easy job or should i take it back?

Congrats on the new bike!

I spent hours trying to figure out how to find the cable to hook the audio in for the Garmin 660LM.   Once I found where the wires are, it isn't difficult.   The pictures from the instructions confused me.

Pull back the mirror on the left side of the motorcycle.   It is hinged and comes all the way forward revealing a large bolt used to hold in the left hand turn signal.   

Remove that bolt after slipping off the cable which plugs into the turn signal.  Don't loose the retaining clip!  Has a habit of flying off (I found this out the hard way!)

Reach around and remove the light assembly.

Another bolt will be now visible under the light assembly.   Remove it.

The entire plastic is held in by that single bolt and some friction clips.   Slid that plastic assembly forward towards you and you will find the "Secret magic compartment"    There is a piece of velcro there holding two wires.  One is for your power and the other is for your audio.

Plug in your Garmin audio and reverse these instructions.

Hope this helps!

Glad I could help!

Also - after the flying retainer clip event, and the dropped allen key event, go to your dealer or to triumpheparts (etc.), and get some extra bolts and at least an extra retaining clip or two.

Guys the trick is not to pull the clip that holds the plug to the rear of the bulb holder. Press it it in whilst pulling the plug away from the bulb holder and the clip stays with it.  :028: :028:
