2020 Bonneville T120 Black
I had my longest ride yet, about 34 miles round trip I had to go back to the dealer to return a sweatshirt that didn’t fit. It is has about 50 miles in it. Many more to come.
Thanks for the very clear explanation! I will try soonI used the needle nose to lightly squeeze opposite sides of the retaining clip, it takes the pressure of the washer tightness against the little plastic peg and u just work it up and off nicely. If u are not careful and u try and pri them off u will break the plastic pegs and u won’t b happy. i made a little diagram showing how to use the needle nose to squeeze the sides of the washer where the arrows points are and shimmy it off.... hope this helps..
and I know I said the grills would look good black which they would but u have a lot of nice chrome on the bike and spraying the panel grills with a bright chrome spray wouldn’t look to bad either, it’s your bike do what makes sense and make u happy! ..... FTG
Haia allLooking forward to your review of the lowering springs ,
Saw them on the Tec site the other day and watched the video,but decided to wait until i've seen some reviews before taking the plunge
Looks really good! I my try that for my Bonnie.Finished the final version of the bag supports - a bit more involved, but now mount above and below the frame-rail. 3mm aluminium bar, they're not going anywhere - strong enough to lift the rear of the bike. Had so file a recess in the ECU tray to make room for bottom bolt (circled in red). A couple of spacers made from 25mm nylon bar for alignment/support against the rail (full width at the rear down to half diameter at the front)

OK, here goes... no photos as the Tec video shows it all and it doesn't look any different when installed.
A couple of interesting points whilst lowering my Scrambler 1200 XC.)
Interesting data 2WG, I look forward to your report! I'm also 5'10" and find my XC just a wee bit tippy toe on rough roads, so losing 20mm might just make the difference, and I don't really need all the suspension travel- it was the riding position that sold the bike to me.
Thanks. I’ve been trying to decide between fitted bags and throw over bags, and your solution would keep the throw overs from getting caught in something bad.Bear in mind the bags I used tie direct to the frame rail (just like the old push-bike ones) to the brackets aren't taking the weight, just stopping the bags flapping around
