WELCOME!
I see the hump on the seat has been removed (Humpectomy) looks good. I'm going to attach your Owners Manual in case the previous owner didn't supply one. When you have a few posts you can receive private messages... ask for a service manual and it can be linked in PM so you have what you need for service and maintenance information.

Thank You for the Owner's Manual!! I really appreciate this forum and the people here.
I've read a lot from some very interesting and helpful people.
I just removed the "pad" before this photo, I have completed the Humpectomy,
but I still want to reduce the hump some more.
I bought an ATV seat pad and that helped the comfort some, too.
I may actually remove more of the seat pan and rebuild it with some fiberglass to make the seat even flatter.
Now, it's time for lights!! I got my first ones in the mail yesterday and more are in transit!!

I did a couple of other "temporary" add-ons in the last couple of weeks.
I bought a ATV seat pad that covers the seat, so you can't see the holes left from the hump surgery.
And, in an effort to make the seat more comfortable, I am experimenting with a cushion under the seat pad.
It raises the front of the seat to nearly equal to the back of the seat.
I can still touch the ground, but the "leftover" hump(even with the two mounts completely removed)
doesn't hurt the derriere at all.
My plan is to use an example of another thread, and remove the current cover, replace the padding with
new foam, and then recover the seat.

Thoughts anyone?

My son bought a chair at a rent-to-own place and I saw it there and they threw it in for free!!
Of course when I told them I was going to use it as a mouse pad, they were both amused and amazed.
A couple of them realized how good of an idea it was.
Yeah, it's big, but it fits my keyboard and mouse and I still have room from my drink!! LOL!!!

I love those Add-ons! Your bike will definitely be visible at night. I do like the under-bike lights. However, and this is a BIG however...I found that when the temperature gets high enough under the seat area glued items start falling off. SOOO, if you are going to put lights where the heat is going to be high, consider something as a back up to hold them in place, like a dab of a high temperature glue of some sort in the very center of it. If the other glues let go, it will hold. Just a thought. So far I have had two lights that have come off due to heat, so I always find a backup method to hold them. I don't know how many times I have used tie wraps. I keep some of those under my seat. You never know when you will need them.

That's the idea, make me both as visible as possible and let me see as much as possible.
The COB LEDs will be mounted with 3M tape and 2 tiny zip ties each. That's how I mounted the other 2 that are already on the scoot.
I already have the 18W flood lights mounted and wired. These 18W spot lights will make good "low beams".

The parts for the "Flux Capacitor" have shipped and should be here in a couple of weeks.
I'm not sure about where to mount it, But I am thinking of putting it on the fuel door. Seems an appropriate place. LOL!!

Ride On,
Dave
