Quick thought for owners of 2013/14 "hump" models that have had a humpectomy - give some thought to covering the holes with round vinyl repair patches - should be a quick and easy way to get it waterproof without costing anything significant.


I used a stripe of Gorilla tape across the entire seat.
It looked acceptable, but it was temporary.
Now I have a cushion on the front of the seat and a cover over the whole seat.
The cushion levels out the seat from front to back and makes it more comfortable.

Dave, so you know I re-sized your very first photo, do you mind if I resize the other five? Your thread will be "more pleasing to the eye(s)" then.


Rock and roll with it!!
I just read what size was acceptable for upload and resized accordingly.
What is the best size/resolution for posting?
I'll make them better next time!! LOL!!

Dave

Resized resolution From 1296x972 To 700x525

Gorilla tape is Awesome! Duct tape pales next to it in adhesion and strength. No messin' with it afterwards - It grips! :lol:

Here's an update with my scoot tore down for lighting mods!!
I'm working on the lighting wiring harness.
Replacing the rear turn signals with LED strip lights.
I've mounted the spot lights to the forks, but I need to wire them up.
COB LEDs for underglow.
EL-Wire for accent lights.

I added my lights without tearing my bike down half that much. Taking the panel off that contains the gas cap cover gave me access to most of the wiring that I needed to get to. In the back, I could take the whole thing apart in 10 minutes, so the only problem I have had has been including led turn signals in the back. The blinker on the bike is not meant for LED lights. When I added them to my wife's bike to blink in unison with the standard turn signals, they were out of sync. Well, I will work on that, some day.

I'm adding a completely separate wiring harness with connectors for my extra lighting.
My underglow lighting is rear, middle and front, so I have connectors that will be throughout the left side of the scooter.
My EL-Wire and USB outlet panel are also part of the new harness.
The rear turn signals are coming off, and I have already replaced them with LED strip lights.
To fix the blinker problem, I bought an adjustable flasher unit designed for LEDs. ($1.08)
I know I could have done this without the complete disassembly that I did, but it is easier to put thing in their place
and mount the new connectors.
Plus, with the added wiring harness, I have made extra connectors for adding more lights, turn signals and the strobes that I haven't purchased yet.
I know, some people might think it overkill, but I am going for a certain look.
Plus, IT'S FUN!!!
