I thought about that Swifty but wouldn't you have to drill a small hole on the side cover to attach a cable with a small bolt & nut? I guess I could drill a hole on the top of the cover (that wouldn't be too noticalbe).I put a heavy fishing line on mine about 10 inches long so I don't lose mine.
A thin steel cable would be better to discourage theft.
I never even thought about that... Why would they make a part that just 'comes off' like that.. Now you have me paranoid... THANKS!Replaced my missing side cover with a chrome one. It looks like my bike needs more shiny bits on the battery side. I just realized that if someone wanted (or needed) a chromed left side cover they could just walk up an take it. Is there a way to attach it like on the ride side?
hey, thanks, wasn't wanting to put the batwing on just yet but pulled my own leg and convinced myself to do it lolHey Kyle! I'm liking the batwing! Are the whitewalls Shinko 777?
Couple months ago I bought a 97 vt1100 ace in great shape, it was well maintained by the previous owner, has just over 87000km on it, I've got things I'm changing out on it and I've been able to do a few different things so far. I'll continue to post pics until I'm at where I'd like to be with it.
A little spritz of rust check on the rubbers makes them slide in easily and makes them seat better to stay in place.Dang it! It happened again! This is the third time I lost the left side battery cover! I'll admit that this is my fault. I popped the side cover to gain access to my heated glove pigtail. I guess I didn't push it back in place. This is getting ridiculous. This time I will take Swifty's advice. I went out and bought a fishing line jig thingie.
