    Hi Ruby,

    I responded to your post earlier but wanted to reply here also, just in case. Take a look at the PDF from the link below. It's what I used for the install. To answer your specific question, it states

    Quote: "the Foot bracket is secured to the motorcycle using the largest of the cable ties supplied in the kit. The Foam strip underneath the Bracket protects the frame from scratches."

    According to the 'Tuturo Workshop Manual', there are 3 options for installing. I used option 1 on page 14, the cable tie method. It's held with no issues for several thousand miles. I check it whenever I add oil. See manual in link below.

    Hi Ruby, felt the same way as you my first couple of rides. These guy's on the forum told me Drive is mostly for the 4 lane and if you encounter any hills, hit the minus paddle on the left and it will temporarity throw you into 5th so you can retain your speed. Sport mode is for mostly around town and sweeping corners which is what I use most of the time. Most riders don't bother with the Manual mode. Dale M
