    A picture of my Rally with the cable hold downs pointed forward after performing the steps mentioned at the beginning of this thread. The difference may be the amount of rotation after inverting??? Not sure. Used the original holes for the grip guards as well.

    CTAC, Thanks for being courageous enough to tackle this and post it as well.

    NM Wrench, visit your local body shop and you should be able to find some small rubber plugs used to plug autobody holes.

    From the start, my objective is to take this roadster type platform and make it closer to a cruiser. People can make fun of me that I have added a cup holder, GPS, gel seat pad, backrest mounted storage, etc.... but, not to over-dramatize it, the handlebar modification and adding lumbar support has made all the difference in the world for ergonomics. Two-up trips of more than 150 miles are now practical for us.

    Nobody can make fun of you, because most of us have done all those things to our F3's and Rt's to make them more comfortable! This is no different.
    Way to go CTAC! Ignore the naysayers that say the Ryker can't be used for long distance touring.

    When I get mine I will be driving it to work during the summer months and I will want a cup holder for my coffee and probably a lumbar support. So, thank you for being one of the pioneers for the Ryker.

    I say it's your bike......so do as you like. Making it your own and being comfortable is the way to go.
