    Tupperware Removal for Wire Routing

    Is there a clearer and easier to view step-by-step of the removal of Tupperware so I can route wiring for my handlebar mounted camer?

    Some of the installation sheets for Denali light mounts (www.twistedthrottle.com) show how to remove the Tupperware. Here's the link to one set of instructions that I used to install a set of these mounts. I had no trouble removing the Tupperware, following these directions:

    Be careful, and don't mix up the torx bolts and allen bolts.

    Chris on the Street and Boxflyer have a terrific set of videos on RTW maintenance which includes detailed instructions for dealing with the fairings. See parts 1 and 2 of the 6-part series.

    My experience with the K1600 is it is fairly obvious what you need to do to remove panels, start at the front, and work your way back!
    The worst problem is dealing with all the screws. Some guys punch cardboard in a pattern that matches the locations. I just use painter's tape and tape the screws to the back of what ever part they go with.

    Thanks All!

    I used blue painters tape and encase the screws in a strip, leaving a tab to connect hear the hole where the screw emerged from. Successful install of my USB and Garmin VIRB 360 power cable. Installed my Wunderlich MultiPod Adapter and the powered VIRB base. Looks phenomenal!

    Apart from the immediately ascertainable problem that the fastener is too long, too short, too fat or too skinny, what is the problem of mixing the types of fasteners? Just curious.
