Installing auxiliary lights on a Concours 14

Bill is a friend from my past business life who’s been very supportive of the new shop. His company was throwing out some big metal shelving, so he had it stored until I could use it here. He’s also customer #2: he wanted Hyper-Lites and PIAA auxiliary lights installed on his brand-new Kawasaki Concours 14.

Better yet, he brought his service manual! I used it for the (enormous) wiring diagram and to help clarify how some of the fairings are supposed to come off.

Detailed photos and captions are in the comments in the photo album. Beyond that, I have to say Kawasaki’s fit and finish on the fairings is really good on this bike, and the only real trouble I had with the fairings was a result of not noticing there are three different styles of plastic “quick rivet.” Turns out the two smaller ones look similar enough to get them mixed up. The only special tool I really used was my wobble bit from Snap-On.
