For rookies removing your fairing (like me)
When putting things back to together, be very careful to not pinch your turn signal wires. Ask me how I know.
I was actually not a rookie. I had cracked my fairing open before to do some things in there, and didn't have any issues. But after taking my fairing off to install the XM antenna for a new Zumo 665, I got in a hurry putting things back together. And I did it. Pinched the turn signal wire. The resulting short caused the fuse for my tail lights to blow. And to make it worse, the pinch was so close to the light that I really didn't have any confidence in a repair solution. So I had to buy a new socket assembly.
Moral of this story? Be careful with those wires when putting things back together.
I know experienced owners know this. For me, a lesson learned.
