There is apparently some confusion- some folks think they have 'ordered' a harness by voting in this poll. Unfortunately it does not work that way- the poll is not mine and I
have no idea or way to tell who voted. If anyone wants a harness that person should e-mail me directly.

My e-mail is the envelope icon directly under my avatar to the left of the screen.

To those who have already purchased a harness, thanks for buying them and, of course, thanks for the kind words about the harnesses.

Really? Some folks thought that they placed an order just by voting? Maybe those guys should park their bikes for a while. I think that the Connie might be too complicated for them, all those buttons and such, it's very confusing.    ::)

Wow Conrad, are you really that cranky about the post or did the dog wet the carpet just before you stared typing?  ;D

I don't think they thought they actually placed the order but perhaps they thought they were beginning the process of buying one. I assume they thought they would be contacted, which is not really unreasonable if we assume it was my poll, and I had access to the voting list.  It is no big deal either way other than those folks who thought something should have happened before now.

a quick scan of Fred's video for removal, and that was an easy install.

Is there an easy way of re-popping those push rivets?  I got it from the backside, but felt like I was going to pierce my fingertip....

Yep, those rivets are reusable.

To remove, push the center pin down about 1/8" below the rivet head height and the rivet will release.

To install, push the center pin out of the rivet body toward the direction of the rivet head (it will not continue down through the rivet body). Make sure the rivet petals are collapsed and install the rivet body, followed by installing the rivet pin until it is flush with the rivet head.

Some people just pull the rivet pin out of the body until it is about 1/8" above the rivet head (but still in the rivet) but I have not always been successful with that- removing the pin entirely makes reassembly easy.

I would not feel dumb if I were you- those rivets are NOT self explanatory or intuitive. I didn't figure it out myself either, I picked it up somewhere; trust me, I would have pried them out and wiped out the rivet and possibly the plastic panels they held together if left to my own devices.

By the way, I took the coward's way out and cut the brake line guides off of the front fender. My thought was $6 or $8 per wheel removal would be worth it after playing with them for 20 minutes. Turns out you do not even need them.
