The top case is easily removed. Two electrical connectors under the seat. Four T-40 Torx bolts under the top case carpet. You remove the H-frame by removing four T-40 Torx bolts and two T-30 Torx bolts in the grab handles.

Here are some more pictures of how I did it. Within these pages there is some great information on how to do this yourself. Here is some dimensions on the flat plate before it is bent. The tricky part is getting the holes in the blocks located correctly.

Looks awesome

I like the looks. Sadly, those of us without the skills or know-how to do what you've done can only dream and drool.


When you decide to mass-produce a few and sell them, let me know!

Your bike looks awesome John, you obviously are very skilled in customization and farkling. Was good seeing both you and Mary in Mt. Morris yesterday.

To bad we can get a quick release mechanism for the top box. I would love to be able to pop it in and off.
