    Congratulations on making the modification to the Adjustable Tour Pak Relocator.

    I'm very much interested in seeing pics of how the wiring is reconnected. Also, how to prevent it from being stretched out or under too much tension from back and forth adjustable movements?

    Thanks, the wires are held in my case by zip ties so there is just one bundle, then the filler pad has two velcro straps that I looped around the bundle on each side. There is plenty of wire and the velcro helps keep it from getting pinched. I didn't take any pics ofd that (didn't think it was a big deal, but, I will.

    The only mod I needed to make was the notch I discussed previously.

    Here's what it looks like from the back:

    Here's what it looks like from the right:

    RelocatorRight.jpg

    From the left:

    Relocator Left Right.jpg

    From the extended filler side:

    Relocator Pad.jpg

    Here it is pushed fully forward:

    Relocator Up.jpg

    Here it is all the way back:

    Relocator Back.jpg

    Here is it with the pet palace on from the right:

    Pet Palace Right.jpg

    Here is it with the pet palace on from the Left:

    Pet Palace Left.jpg

    The only issue is that to "use the full 3" with the pet palace, I am going to need to make a spacer to get the pet palace a little higher, so the corners don't poke into the speakers. I'm thinking a some sort of bag or pillow case type thing that I could put all of His Royal Highness' stuff in ... LOL.

    Default Some more info

    One last thing that I eluded to last night. With the tour pak in the back position, there is room to put on or remove the arm rests.

    Left:

    Right:

    I'm not wild about the look with the arm rests removed, but, I like the look less with the arm rests. you can still see the mounts, but, I'll live with that.

    I see you have provided Harley with a beverage holder.

    You’re a good man Charley Brown!

    Default Wires and Pad

    Here's the wires with the tour Pak forward:

    Relocator Wires Up.jpg

    Here's the wires with the tour Pak Back:

    Relocator Wires Back.jpg

    Here's the Pad with the tour Pak forward:

    Relocator Pad Up.jpg

    Here's the Pad with the tour Pak back:

    Relocator Pad Back.jpg

    So a little of a review. Obviously with the rain, I haven't ridden with it.

    I timed it, not racing, just operating it in a normal speed. Takes right at 45 seconds to "unlatch" the four latches, pull it back and "relatch" the four latches.

    Going the other way was right at 45 seconds too.

    Compared to taking the tour pak off and moving it ... that's pretty significant.

    So, the look. The tour pak actually sits about an 1' to 1.5" higher. That's gonna take a few to get used to. Kuryakyn has put a fancy chrome filler piece on the back to hide it and that helps. The sides are clean. I might look into the filler piece with the LED lights offered by DK to fill the gap, maybe drill some holes in the chrome to mount it ... that's the problem with modding something ... LOL ... it becomes a slippery slope ... .

    Okay, I had some concerns about where to grab the tour pak to "slide" it. I tried several places, the luggage rack, pushing it from the front, and opted for putting my hands on the corners, were the LED light strip on the back, is and gently lifting while pulling back or pushing forward, it slides very smoothly. The gentle lift takes the weight off the mechanism. I can do it with one finger on each hand so, it's not at all tough to do.

    About the cost. If you are riding mostly with a co rider and don't mind keeping the tour pak back all the time, I don't recommend it. Kuryakyn gets $349.99 for it, I was lucky and found a guy with only one left on eBay (New in the box) for $299.99 with free shipping. For a guy like me that isn't wild about the look of the TP being back all that much, at $300 it was worth it for me. As, I've said many times before, Harley's are merely a down payment for accessaries. But, so is a Gold Wing if you are like me and want your ride to be unique to you .

    If you are referring to the Kuryakyn passenger drink holder, that came with the bike ... if it's the one on the pet palace, that came with the pet palace. Either way ... he'll have planty to drink ...

    Thanks for showing the wiring pics....I like the look of the Adjustable Tour Pak Relocator and looks like it's going to work really well for you.

    I also had to remove my Kuryakyn Filler Pad in order to use the Sheepskin Seat Cover. Both wouldn't tuck in like I wanted at the back of the seat. So put the stock pad back on, but only planned to use the Sheepskin anyway for long distance travel, unless the "dog days of summer" changes that.

    Yes ... I think this may be the best money I've spent on the Trike so far ... maybe top 5 ...

    Default There be blue skies with fluffy clouds here

    Couldn't help myself. Even though it was only like 48*, I decided to do some highway speed tuning. I did 5 runs of 15+ miles. Started with 12% learned and after 5 runs was down to 7% learned ... guess I have some more to do ...

    Good thing I enjoy just riding it ... cause I may have another 5-10 runs left to get down to almost nothing.

    Default No Geezer's today ...

    Had to help a friend with some Estate paperwork for her father's estate. Good news ... got to spend some time with the God Dogs ... the one that had surgery is doing great, running jumping and generally having a ball.
