Has any one tried these yet? If so how much of the electronics do I have to move around? I would try it in cardboard, but my VLX is in a hundred pieces at the moment.

He gave it to me, I am going to try the panels, but I am not sure what or how much I need to move. I was debating buying the BCB panels, but already am having someone do a majority of my work (feelslikeshit).

Attn @@@ Bolt On Updated Covers For Older Bikes

I posted this on the Honda Bobbers Facebook page but wanted to get this out there for those trying stuff like this /\/\/\;

Ok attn all owners of the older style Honda Shadows (pre 1999 I think) with the ugly ass two piece side covers/rear fender cover. So I posted a little while back about updating that old set up on my 1991 VLX600 to the newer style covers like the 98 - current model Shadows (with out having to resort the shitty ass looking Blue Collar metal covers :/). So here they are mounted up and good to go with a few bolt on quality parts. If you want to order up a complete kit hit up Hex Head Bobbers for a quick and easy bolt on set up that only took about 15min to convert. Comes with both of the updated side covers in Black or Chrome, mounting hardware and new grommets. Looks sick and was affordable and easy, no more ugly ass stock covers!

Go to facebook > Hex Head Bobbers - he can send a complete bolt on kit to your door. awesome guy!

Bike pre teardown with old covers

LT side kit under cover

RT side kit under cover

RT side updated cover

LT side updated cover

Message me if you have any questions. Was super simple to install. comes with bolts, grommets, covers either black or chrome. Took like 20 minustes to install.

I'd resent the whole shitty ass blue collar remark if I didn't build blue collar bikes.
You white collar guys must have a love affair with plastic, and stock looking parts.
To each there own I guess.
Mine are aluminum , fit without carving up the bike or the wiring , and once painted out
should look just fine. Oh they took less than an hour to hammer out.
