2.5 hours, washing waxing and shining, done a few mods over the winter, added a FM radio, made a set of lowers, added throttle lock, drivers backrest, tail bag, but the best mod I have done was bringing the saddle bags in close to the rear fender, just had to remove a couple spacers, before I did it I could fit my hand between the fender and the saddle bags, now there is a very tight gap, looks much better in my opinion.Happy riding all.

Looks great. You have me thinking about those bags now.
Just looking at it. My backrest brackets seem to be a little different from yours. I have that huge gap around the fender but the saddle bag lids almost touch the backrest supports.
Share some more about the FM radio. What is it? Where is it? Is it permanantly mounted. How does it work with the system?
Is that a custom made kick stand device. You should paint it to match the bike lol nice bike by the way
Like some info on the fm radio? I am looking into doing the same thing
Sandy Rigby Cosmo Slisz, This is the FM radio I purchased, I did not use the mount that came with it but rather built my own bracket, I was able to wire it into the amp on the bike , the only other thing I did was add an automotive antena to the set up, I like it a lot and it works very well and is completly waterproof http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Motorcycle-Audio-Radio-FM-M P3-Stereo-Sound-System-Waterproof-For-Yamaha-Cruis ers-/221764723455?hash=item33a23522ff
Thanks just ordered one!
To save me some time could you tell/ show where you tapped into the amp?
Cosmo Slisz, I wish I could tell you exactly how it was done, I wired everything else up but had a friend who is a stereo installer wire it into the amp, I was busy doing the other wiring and I diden't even check out how he did that part.
Thanks for the radio info , I will figure it out , thanks again
