Default Idea for Storage

I have an idea for a small storage area on the XCT.

It involves using the DUCT-VISOR (PN: 5437830) and cutting out a 6"x1" rectangle out of the front (facing the driver). I would make it about 1.5" deep. Basically it would be an open pocket.

This part is about 1.25" tall on the ends of the part and about 1.75" in the middle of the part...so there should be enough material to make a hole and add an insert.

I don't know what or how much it could hold...not a lot, but it at least it would make that WASTED space semi-functional.

Interesting idea, I can see it holding glasses, wallet, keys, turnpike slip/money. I like it. Good luck.

You are riding the motorcycle with the most storage on the road. How much more stuff do you need?





Ride safe

Wally,

I am interested in seeing the finished project once it's completed. Even with all of the storage we have it would be nice to be able to place a set of sunglasses in the "dash" while riding as I plan on taking the hard lowers off this summer.

I could use some handy storage space reachable while "on" the bike.. Go for it Wally...!

The first step is just getting the part in...and then to be perfectly honest...I'm gonna see if my father-in-law will help me.

I'll know more when the part gets here.

I'll keep everyone up to date.

OK...I got the part in so that I could evaluate the possibility of some additional small storage in this piece that sits on the dash.

Unfortunately, now I don't this would work very well for several reasons. (See photo).

First, unless you intend to utilize the ENTIRE inside of this piece (angles and very little useful space)...then you are limited to maybe a 1" rectangle box.

Secondly, I scoured the internet for pre-formed rectangle boxes both with and without a cover, but that also had a "lip" to fit over the cutout...NOTHING.

It's really too bad though...there is a decent amount of space to be used (don't ask me for what though).

So...although I had an idea, I don't think it is feasible now. The good news is that I have that part as extra now and might could put SOMETHING in it like a garage door opener, a gauge of some sort, a mount of some sort or even some sort of ORNAMENTAL decoration across the length of it.

Sorry I couldn't come through.

But here are a few other ideas.
