I'm really trying to educate myself more about my bike and do as much maintenance and mods myself as possible. I've never been very mechanical and I knew the learning curve would probably be steep but sometimes I feel like I'm nowhere near the top! Did you folks that are real good at wrenching start out feeling like this? I managed to do these with good outcomes: 1)Oil/tranny oil change 2)Passenger floorboards 3)Sundowner seat However, when I put my new Clearview windshield on I managed to put a small crack in it when the center screw wasn't lined up perfectly. Hasn't gotten any bigger so I'll live with it for now. Today, I spent 3 hours putting on my adjustable backrest and HD midframe air deflectors. Overall it went OK but there was one screw (upper one on the left deflector/backrest adjustment handle) that there was just NO WAY I was going to get in. I tried every tool and every angle I could think of and it just wasn't happening. Having Fred Flintstone hands doesn't help. Anyway, I made sure the lower one was good and tight and I'll live with it the way it is. Thanks - I guess I just needed to vent a little. Just so frustrating when a seemingly straightforward project takes all day and then still isn't done 100% according to the instructions.
