I really appreciate all the photos! Great angles, and close ups, showing all the cutting and trimming done. Nice work!
Did you end up using the front fairing speaker cups (or whatever they are called) for the 6.5in speakers or not?
One of these days I’ll get one of those Magnum wheels.

Thanks & Np picture's can say a 1000 words as the sane goes. No I removed the speaker baffles as they distorted the sound terribly.

Good for you Badger. Some people are saying they aren't going to do anything more to their Vic's than what it takes to keep them running and here you go fixing yours all up.

Good for you indeed! I'm sure a trunk will make itself available at some point.

Its a good feeling when you get things setup just the way you want them. thumb up This is the first winter since I got my XC in 2014 that I didn't collect a "pile-of-crap" to be installed and tinkered with. In fact, outside of a pack of shrink\solder\seal tubes to clean up my ugly wiring jobs, I bought nothing....which means I must be done :)

OH MAN! I wish I knew about those shrink/solder/seal connectors when I had my machine repair biz. The soldering iron would have stayed in the truck. What a great idea those are. For a good, but removable connection, I have been using these Posi products......

Thanks i treat my bike like anything else i love, make it into what u want, just because Polaris pulled the plug dont mean sh*t to me in my mind. I got what i wanted outta them there loss is my gain. It took me several months of searching day in day out for the forged bars,tail light and lids an i wont stop looking for bits an peaces that i think ill need over the next several decades.

I see in on of your google photos that you also have the TRO2 wideband add-on. May I ask if you had someone turn your bike, you did the tuning (I don't know if the Maximus software comes with software to view the tables), or if the Maximus uses the wideband O2 kit with Autotuning algorithms and Maximus software makes suggested changes?

Yes i have the TR02 an the maximus installed ready to go when spring comes around here in Canada. I am going to try an learn/teach myself how to tune my own bike my self so if an when i happen to do any future upgrades to the engine I will understand the workings of it. If i dont figure it out i will get a pro to tune it for me. As far as the technoresearch software they offer 2 maps #1 is a basic can tune & #2 is a Stg 1 can tune, everything is built into it you need to change fueling,timing,rev limit. I've called them seeking a custom tune for my mods done to my engine and they dont have one so they want to out source it which in return ad's more cost to you so now that I know this i wish i would have not purchased it direct from them an went to 801 motorworx. So if u have not purchased one yet i would buy from 801 and pay for there remote tuning.

TWO AMPS? Why not just get the 4 chan PBR400 ?
I opt to run 2 amps since my bike is factory wired front an rear if i was to run one 4 channel up front i would have to cut factory harness to hook up rear input and then run wiring to the rear of the bike. An with the Vtwin audio harnesses it make a super clean install plus have factory hookup to attach a trunk with speakers as well if i like in the future.

hmmm well that was my plan. to just install one up front. So when I want trunk speakers I turn to 4 chan and plug in the plug but it sounds like my plan is going to need some more engineering when the time comes. I can understand two amps if I had saddle speakers.

At the Vog, there is the big trunk install thread with a Magnum. He wired that up with one amp and it runs the saddle and trunk speakers I thought. That was what I am hoping for. A slick 1 amp solution.
