You'll love the S10. I have the OEM top case, side cases and wind deflectors. Yes, they you can get a nice discount on the accessories if you purchase them with the bike.

One key is nice, as is a 3 second removal and install time with the OEM cases.
Thanks advD. I posted this in the wrong thread. Will be crunching numbers and hope to be an owner soon.

Sure, Highway Dirtbikes makes the top clamp piece, check here "Highway dirtbikes"

The switches came from them too and the plugs I got somewhere else, all the wiring done by me

Do you have a take off check list?

Yea, I think I will need one

Okay, I will start from left to right

1st black switch turns power on or off for the plug on the left which is always powered (wired through the fuse box)

2nd black switch turns power on or off for the plug on the right which is ignition powered through the relay below the fuse box to the right (it's mounted at a 45 degree angle, see it in the previous photo)

The two green LED's are ON when the plugs are powered

3rd switch (red) powers my accessory lights and the red LED is on when powered (obviously )

4th switch (red) powers my radar detector, in case I want to switch it off after I'm stopped by a cop

The GPS is always powered since I might want to use it while the bike is not running

Let us know how it goes for you Goldie05. I'm not due for a while longer.

It is easy to remove the Alt Rider Skid Plate. No wrenches needed now.

Oil changes are Easy and Clean.

lol!

I got "5/16-25 Self-Locking Nut Plate, Floating" (And rivets 1/8 countersunk 1/8-1/4) from www.pegasusautoracing.com

The Bolts "socket flat head, stainless steel 18-8, 5/16" from www.boltdepot.com


I went to SAE from Metric because I could not find "floating" metric nut plates. No biggie. The bolts are the same "rating" as the ones supplied with the skid plate.

I "drilled out" the "little bracket up front" to use the larger bolts (someone forgot to order the smaller hardware. Said Fcuk it, and made everything one size).



Works perfect!!
