HOW TO TRIM YOUR WINDSHIELD
LOADED LOWER DASH INSTALLATION
CAUTION REFER TO YOUR MOTORCYCLE OWNER’S MANUAL AND WIRE DIAGRAM FOR THE APPROPRIATE LOCATION TO WIRE ELECTRONICS ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE.
IF ARE UNCERTAIN REFER TO A PROFESSIONAL MECHANIC TO HELP WITH THE INSTALLATION.
1. LOADED LOWER DASH MOUNTING
- Remove the four 12 mm bolts from the upper fork mounts and discard the cable guides. Your new lower dash will act as a guide for the cables
- Install the lower dash into place by using the same manufactures bolts and retighten
- Remove the gas tank by removing the side shrouds and seat.
NOTICE: The two fuel lines connecting your gas tank to the carburetor.
- The negative (-) black lead can be wired to any ground source. We recommend to secure the ground onto the right side of the frame. Route the black wire thru the center of the forks. Leave enough slack in the wire for the handle bars to turn properly.
- Route the supply (+) wire thru the center of the forks from the lower dash directly to the positive terminal on the battery.
- Secure the wires with the supplied zip ties. Make sure the wiring is routed in a manner that will be free from heat or abrasion.
- The Positive red wire can be wired to a keyed location or directly to the battery. Included with your loaded lower dash is a switch that will allow you to manually turn all electronics off.
NOTICE: If the lower dash is left on for extended time it will put a small drain on your battery when the motorcycle is not in use. Make sure the power source is shut off when the key is off.
CAUTION: To get extended life out of your new Loaded Lower Dash. Use common sense when charging devices. The dash comes with a 10 amp fuse. The wires can handle Up to 15 Amps even though the wiring can handle larger amp loads. It is up to you what size fuse to use for overload protection. Through experience we have found that purchasing a Plug Type USB is better to use than a permanent plug built into the dash. This allows for more reliability on the road.
