R/R relocation adventure

So last night, with the huge amount of help/info from this site, I relocated the R/R. I thought I would add a couple of thoughts on the subject for any newbs getting ready to do it themselves. By the way I used Bulldogs bracket and it came with great instructions, shipped quickly and was well worth the price. Kudos B dog!



tips:
1. Small Grey aliens are better suited to this tas,k with there long slender multi-jointed fingers, than overweight middle aged short tempered mid westerners.
2. Close the garage door before working on your VN750. There are a number of good reasons for this including:
a. keeping you warm
b. prevent the neighbors from thinking you have Tourette Syndrome.
c. small dogs and children scare easily
d. its easier to find thrown tools and parts if they are in a confined space vs the front lawn.
3. What takes Bulldog 30 minutes means 1 hr for me, with stripped knuckles.

Photo's of my adventure are posted at the following link.

Just reading those tips makes me think we must be related somehow.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

Nice pictorial too. Someday I'll move mine over. Would be nice if they made a chrome or black cover to go over it.

Good pics. I'll have to do mine sometime in the next couple of months once it's put away for the winter rains.
What does Bulldog ask for the kit?

Bulldog charged 20$ for the bracket and a few dollars shipping, well worth it. And yeah removing the battery box would have made this easier, however the wiring harness and all that wiring junk is all routed through it, and I did not feel like redoing the wiring on the bike just yet. :-)

This was pretty much my experience too. Disconnecting all that stuff from the battery box looked worse that just cussing it out of there!
