Now you can add the new steel bar that you made for the trunk that has the Trunk Latching Plates. I used ¾ inch long SS nuts, bolts and lock washers to do this. I use SS where ever I can on this bike as I fabricate new things or remove other stuff.
When it comes time to add the Trunk Latching Pins, you MUST have a large washer in place before adding the acorn nut on the inside. This will distribute pressure of the acorn nut on the inside plastic of the trunk. Failure to do this will probably crack the trunk on your first ride. The steel bar and the large washer act as a clamp and the foam tape is the bonding agent. You want the stress to go around the hole and not through it.
Here is a close up of the Latch Plate and Latch Pin installed.
NOTE: Please note the direction of the Latch Pin. Both Latch Pins are pointing to the right (as viewed from behind). If you do not line them up like this the trunk will not latch into the frame of the bike.

1) Experience is something you don't get until after you need it.
2) A closed mouth gathers no foot.
3) IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO IT RIGHT, WHEN WILL YOU HAVE TIME TO DO IT OVER??
Horsepower is an illusory mathematical equation; Torque is REAL, and is the source of all good things in the world.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?
