Making it mine.

I need a thread to help me get through all the mods I want to do. I'm going to have lots of foolish questions and I would like to keep this all in one place. Here are the planned mods. 2014 CTX700N.

Shad SH36 side bags
Tank pads
Windscreen
12v power point in the glovebox
Kury throttle lock
Cup holder for the bars
Centerstand and stop
Grip puppies
Thermometer

First question... I removed all of the panels I think need to be removed so I can install the inner supports and 12v power supply. Am I supposed to remove the 4 bungee hook brackets or do they stay? Seems like they go for the 3P mounts but idk.

Wow! You totally stripped that down! I may be wrong but I think for what you're doing all ya had to do was take off the seat (unless you're using the wiring harness) and maybe the two rear panels. The inner supports should go over the bungee hooks, then spacers then jfc's brackets, then grab bars.

He's fine with what he did. The rear cowls have to be removed to install the inner supports. The right front side shelter needs to be removed when installing the OEM 12 volt socket/sub harness and makes it easier to run an after market 12 volt socket wiring. The bungee hooks do not need to be removed at this point. Best to wait and follow the directions when the time comes.

Thanks, I will add some pictures of the back of the right tank panel for future reference. I expect it's going to look this way for a week or 2. I did go with the oem 12v and wiring harness so yes I had to go this far. Also, if there are any recommended mods that require panel removal please let me know about them so I can consider before reassembly
Thanks

I'm in the process of gathering mods because I know the day is coming that I'm going to need to do exactly what you're doing now. These mods include a hard wired Navigation GPS system, running lights, GoPro wiring, electronics for a Scott chain oiler and a gear indicator. I have the 12 volt receptacle already installed but I don't want to use it up on the major electronics. Those are the mods I'm doing on the front end of the bike. The rear is just as challenging.

How about a brake modulator? Since everything is off you may want to add one of those to the list.

This is what I was hoping for. That's some list. I have a Quardo Bluetooth in my helmet for tunes. There are a few I haven't thought about. When I think of upgrades I think comfort not safety or convenience. Modulator and chain oiler are a few; Thanks.
