fj09wildman Posted May 3, 2015 Share Posted May 3, 2015 Anyone else use the left passenger peg bracket to get the scoot on the center stand? Have you done it without a glove. Hurts like He!! because of the sharp edges. I took some small gas line marked 4.8 mm ID and I measured OD as 5/16 in. (1 cm) and used about 5 in.s (12 cm) of it to wedge up into the slot on the backside of top piece of the bracket where you would grab it. It leaves enough hose exposed to keep the sharp edges off your fingers. It wedges into the slot very tight but I used a little black silicone rubber to make sure it stayed there. I also used the same gas line to extend the Drive Mode switch so you can reach it with your thumb while your hand is still on the grip. Used about 1-1/8 in. (30 mm) piece of the same hose and cut a square out on the back side about 1/2 in. (1 cm) from the left side to the center of the knob and then forced the hose over the switch knob. Once on and in position, I slowly filled from both ends with black silicone rubber so as to not over fill and bond it to the switch gear housing. I let it dry for about 4-6 hr.s or until it had started to cure and then gently pushed the hose left to make it operate freely. Support the hose so it doesn't move out of place or pop off. Then walk away and let it cure for 24 hr.s. Should you do this mod Don't over fill the hose and I would suggest prepping by cleaning the mode switch knob with some alcohol to help bonding. Also use a very light coating of oil or grease on the switch housing on either side of the knob, so the silicone rubber won't bond to it. When I learn how I'll post pic's. Opp's I see Photobucket, guess I better go take a picture and insert it. Never mind can't get my computer to see the phone. Use your imagination. Or ask questions.
