    There are two 10mm head bolts. Each just under the headlight. I can not see
    a factory use for the bolts. I used those to hold the light bar bracket. So far so good.
    The bike was used in Moab on the White Rim Trail and some other more mild off road.

    Remember to twist the blades sideways first.

    If you shove the fuse in from the wire side you do not have to twist the blades. You don't even have to unplug the connector if you do it from that side.

    Thanks for the responses, Gentlemen (especially MeefZah, for the quick response).

    Well, I guess I'm gonna' be doin' it the "hack" way, as I will be using the method that is spread all over the i-net (I hope GB doesn't mind me using his pic)...




    It's raining, in San Antone, today. And, the streets inside of Loop 410 will be like greased owl shit. So, I'm thinkin' that today is not the day to re-learn the "new" throttle on my ST. :deal

    So, I will probably try it on a drier day...

    It's cool. Most of us already had our suspicions. Why else would they call yours Closet Blue?

    Man it doesn't take long for the sharks to smell blood in the water around here.:lol3


    Wish this weather would warm up so we could get our lives back.

    Many thanks.. I will have to find another way as my light has a larger alloy bracket with a foot that won't fit just there.

    Thinking cap tine....

    I did cut my 'foot" down some to fit in there. You can see how the bolt head looks
    off center. I cut some of the top off of the bracket to have it work.

    I dunno'... That shark looks like it's pretty close to being black, and with a mouth like that you gotta' wonder about what kind'a bars it hangs out in... :ymca

    I think I'll stick to being an ol' hammerhead. :wink:
