  1. I found some stickyback Velcro strips at Walmart today.. Holding the cowl on just fine and is still removable. Of course riding season is about done so I'll have to give it a good test in the spring. $7 Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  4. Check your stator too so you only have to take the fairings off once [emoji6] Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. I just got my new cowl in the mail.. boy it's pretty lol [emoji3][emoji106] I'm going to try and fix my old one first before I ride with the new one Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. That's where mine broke also. [emoji26] Sorry man, right there with you Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. Did the tab break off on the flat bit or flush off the cowl? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. Same thing happened to me. Rear tab broken. It looks to me like the rear cowl/taillamp wiggles a bit up and down, pressing on the rubber feet on the underside of the solo cowl.. the paint is worn under the cowl at the rear and on the topside of the bodywork on mine. My first attempt to repair I had the tab. Second time it broke she was gone [emoji24] If you try to repair, get the actual abs plastic cement, not the one that does PVC also. It will be black in color. Now I'm thinking little Velcro tabs would work...[emoji848] The rear cowl is still available from Honda.. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. I know right? [emoji14] Closest I'll have to owning the real thing. Still bought it [emoji106] Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Found this at Kohls Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. Well it happened. The tab at the rear of the solo cowl broke and ran off. [emoji26][emoji26] This is technically the second time it's happened.. the first time the price was lodged under the seat and I could abs cement it back in position and all was good. Came home today and it's gone. So something is causing the cowl to move and break the tab... So I can wiggle the brake light assembly pretty good.. previous owner removed the mudguard and put a license holder there... I got the mudguard with the sale of the bike, so I fitted it up to the tail, and voila! It actually holds the rear cowl and brakelight from bouncing around and pressing up on the cowl, breaking the tab! (Hypothesis) Hopefully this is the fix.. tomorrow will tell as I'm putting it back in there. She just doesn't look right without the cowl. Oh and somebody tell Honda there has to be a better way to remove the seat than to pull up on the rear where that cowl is too Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. I checked the stator via "the drill" and got good results. The connector did not show signs of overheating. I've seen a lot of threads about the r/r taking a dump, so I'm trying to be proactive.. I'm hoping to have this bike for a long time. Ergos are nice, highway stability is great, the v4 lol. Just gotta tighten up my ship Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. My reasoning for changing out the r/r is that I don't want it to crap out on me when I'm far far away [emoji16] This is my daily ride, and I need her to be as reliable as possible. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. I got the super kit today. I'm not sure when I'll have time to install, but to be sure on the directions: 1. Removing stock R/R harness and taping off(no longer used) 2. Installing new mosfet R/R running Pos and Neg leads directly to battery with included 30A fuse break. 3. Leaving the original 30A ( fuse "b") lead hooked to the battery positive terminal Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Correct. But I am keeping the fused connection between fuse B on the diagram and the positive on the battery? It looks like from the diagram it feeds to the ignition. It is a 2007 Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
