Jim,
You the man!!!! [smiley=znotworthy.gif] [smiley=znotworthy.gif] I'm dangerous enough w/a few hand tools I would be lethal w/a soldering iron and fooling w/electronics. Not to mention a sharp exacto in a small place like a circuit board. [smiley=nervous.gif]

Ride Safe,

I didn't see any blood, so that is a good thing!

Two...I tried, and may try again, but the damn things are hard to get lined up without cross threading!! The bracket is so close to the radio back there, I can't get my mouth held right to get them started with my fingers.

TC;

I'm glad you got it back together and its working, It really cleans up the look without the wires there.

Pick yourself up a set of these for working on the bike, They are worth there weight in gold!

They are made by Bondhus and availible at most hardware stores.

I would have sworn I did not cross-thread mine, but the one on the starboard side in the back there never would tighten down once it went in.  POS.

Craftman (and others) have these that have proved to be occasionally handy too.  Ball end on the long end to help with the problem discussed here but an extra tool end out the side of the t-handle that can used when more leverage is needed for a tight fastener.

I have a set similiar to those that i do not use. The short end on the handle is always stabbing you in the hand when in use. I just find them to be an uncomfortable tool.

They were cheap on sale one time ($19.99).  I've found them handy when faced with a tight fastener.  Haven't really experienced the problem you describe in regular use though.  We must grip them a little differently.  Have another set (without the extra tool end) with a bit larger grip that I do use primarily though when don't want the extra leverage.

I've got the regular L shaped set with ball end on the long side...they work OK with a pair of good pliers.  Certainly not as comfortable as the T handled ones though.  A good pair of Lineman's Pliers serve many purposes...hammer, cutter, and gripper... ;)

If any 08'ers want to do this, you have to remove the GPS module before you can remove the radio's top;

1. Remove these 2 screws.
