Guys are the greatest Sent me these bags which are not hard Bags they’re like soft bags they’re sort Of like those ones that Moto blonde said Look like ball sacks yes but they’re a Little bit I think they’re a little bit Better shape than that anyway it’s a Really nice really heavy duty bag and we Were thinking that we’re gonna need These and a [ __ ] bar bag when we go Across country that’s right apparently Michael’s decided that he’s just taking One little bag and everything gets to Come on my bike that’s the way it goes Anyway so Dennis has decided and says Not coming off we have to re-engineer These saddle bugs so these are supposed To be able to go on my bike right Without the [ __ ] bar right well so what About if we just got longer screws Though That’s an option because that’s what Like Lauren had to do why did you get Paid the big bucks because I feel like If we just had a longer screw it can get Okay I’m cutting it let’s get started it Does was so ready to cut you he already Drew a line on this one He’s all lined up I mean but it’s we’re Gonna have to take it off anyway because We got to get the blinker off right We’re eliminating the blinkers so y’all But here’s the other thing Buster thank you as soon as I wanted

These he sent them like so awesome from Saddlemen anyway saddlemen’s the Greatest partner we’re so appreciative Um but here’s the thing and like this is Guys you know how I do with installs and You know some people tell me install Videos are their favorite and I haven’t Done one no those are the plates Dennis Um I haven’t done one in a long time so I figured it we were due to do an Install video it’s gonna be hilarious Because everyone knows I don’t know how To use tools or how to do any of it I Have a law degree or anything I know This is a screwdriver and I know what a Hammer looks like and that’s about the Extent of my knowledge In tools anyway so here’s the thing Though that I did not realize when I Asked Buster for these is that my Blinkers have to come off which is good No I know you hate them but they don’t Have to be relocated so here’s here’s The thing guys I didn’t want to mess With trying to relocate them so what I Did instead oh I I know there’s this What I did instead was I so Moto blonde If you guys haven’t seen her Channel Check it out she’s so close to 20 000 go Help her get it Um She had Michael and I went to ride with Her in New York when we went up to Vermont two years ago she had a

Different tail light that had the Blinkers inside So I really liked that and I thought That would eliminate the issue of having To move my blinkers so I did not buy the One that she had because it was more Money than I wanted to spend so I bought One on Amazon It it was significantly less money but It is supposed to Do the blinker thing it’s a blinker Thing yeah Look at this hold on y’all So So this isn’t showing it but on Amazon It showed it of course where it had the The like blinker arrows well it does Show it in here because these are going To be your blinker wires the these two Right yeah and they’re longer and that’s Going to reach up to where so first Things first guys we cannot take this Bike apart if I don’t have blinkers so We’re gonna do the light first and if we Accomplish the light which Lauren did Her lights I should be able to do this That’s right she’s a little more tool Incline than I am and the light to the Blinkers I mean the wire to the blinker So so the first things first I’m sorry I have a lot of people that Bothered me trying to get me to do my Real job right to practice get that Nonsense I’m not here for that you got

Time for that I’m here to be a third Rate YouTube motorcycle mechanic that’s Right maybe I’ll take this thing off and we’re gonna Try the light first and if we get the Light on Try the bags I’m trying Buster I’m Trying we’re gonna get the bags done all Right Stick around you know what we might not Even put writing footage on this video Because I probably will not have all Right all right we’re good We’ll turn that off now what no we’re Gonna watch you unscrew this okay wait So Dennis this screwdriver that you have Right here this is what I need to get This off okay So I just need to be careful not to Strip things right Michael yeah well yep You’ll be good guys What does that means Well this one fits perfectly it came Right out That well that’s pretty long actually I Need to see to get back in right yep Holder oh look at that that’s handy Dad’s got all the tools I mean we’ve Done installs but in Fitzy’s garage Washes and dogs Lauren’s So Michael and I do not have a good Garage with a crappy garage but we have Great friends thanks guys great thank You

Yeah for all these people on YouTube They’re like ah Nick’s a lawyer she Lives in a mansion she has her own Garage no I don’t And I’m not I’m swimming in student lens If you wanted to know Yeah but it’s like little all right so Wait a second Michael you said that Those color wires were Supposed to stop touching that all right So wait but something yeah Like here no you had a first pinch this Yep I feel like I’m gonna rip something this Seems like it’s not good One two muscles on you Dennis I’m oh there we go oh that Doesn’t look good look at that that’s Good that’s a grease on there come on Okay all right so now let’s go back Yonder Also Yeah We’re gonna pull the the cart oh yeah Right to your right this thing yep okay All right now what do I need to do Michael do I need to read the little Wife now we got Fair of the wiring but So Are we gonna have to Does this thing no that thing needs to Stay right yeah but then here’s the Thing we can’t really plug it in because We don’t have the blinker wires right or

They have to go on the inside of this Right right I don’t know you gotta find Them well look We got These two are the blinkers left and Right blinker Now see here’s the conundrum so this Gets plugged in like this oh I’m going To be so bad at electricals and then the Red wire goes in the second yeah Port But that window sticking nothing because That’s because once you put it in there It’s no return okay I mean there is but You have to play with it okay and then The white one it says goes all the way Over here but let’s double check that One again too you were right Michael Left turn and right turn but I just Don’t know how we’re gonna plug those in So you see how they got it Yeah but the left turn and right turn Look like there’s holes right there but I don’t so see now the one here has a Blue wire and the blue wires right next To the third spot We’re taking the third wire which is the White wire and sticking it in the fourth Spot Which is different well should we try to Stick these in because what else are we Gonna do right We see balls here she just shoves it Right in there okay I mean I don’t know What other information

That’s been my motto since I was 15 [Music] Oh I know why it’s telling me I have to Clean it because this is like sticky Can I use this or is this used for Something else Oh I don’t know that this is the right Model for this though I don’t know maybe it’ll work I told you Michael it wasn’t unclear as to whether It would go on my bike it had some Models it did not have my model listed This it says clean it it doesn’t have to Be like so it says to do that part first Yeah it says put the gasket in first Okay Good thing I have detailed experience Get my fingers and crevices yeah look at The rest of the bike tell me that again You’re right okay I didn’t say that I Have the work ethic to keep it clean all The time I said I have detail experience Okay let’s take you off right but I was Just trying to fit it in there first Before I start sticking that’s a good Idea all right stick it so stick it now Stick it All right here goes You know really I should be FaceTiming Heather she would do better than me Better blonde those stock tail lights Don’t have its own turn lights so you Could connect the turn signal wire to

The side turn signal lights then the Signal of the new tail light will work Okay well how am I supposed to do that Turn signal wire up we gotta find it The [ __ ] board I wanted to see if we could just make Any of the lights work before we did it Right you can’t because well we can’t Except for the blinkers and we can plug That in and see if there’s electric to It we could actually run we could take a Battery and run Oh I thought you had that done no I Didn’t I didn’t do that because the Denim is making me a little scared and I Was reading trying to get Right don’t break it Easy All right now All right black wire Negative wire white wire Running light red wire brake light see The brake light won’t work Um blue and the black one should be your Ground according to the wire diagram Insert the white and red wire into the Corresponding slot Which way does this little thing have to Go that’s what I’m saying so we gotta Figure that out so okay that definitely Gives it looks like the circle that goes Up right it looks like it it does so That’s the way I think it goes Wait do we have like what is that an

Exacto knife he’s got it already oh you Already cut that thing I think it’s Gonna need more than that actually well Just let’s see if it works Let’s see I’m hitting the brake is it Lighting up Light but it’s not making a yeah that Works that I put it back on there oh you Know why it’s the red light is not all The way the red wire is not all the way In all right now I hit it all right so The brakes are working now it’s working All right All right so get a test light and test It makes sense it will go to the left is In here it looks like right Okay Yeah And then yellow that’s got to set the Tester out and it says I don’t need to Test it now do I no it’ll be fine right Let’s check it all right let’s see Turning right Uh No yeah right flip it I got nothing Though all right try the other side All right so that they don’t get plugged In there it looks that’s what they do Though but is it because these are Plugged in it might be Yes we gotta sort these wires up that’s Why I was saying we might need to take The tire off oh my God Jack it up baby Jack it up maybe on my

Pay grade how do You know maybe well I don’t know how Much room we got Maybe yeah yeah take it off Um yeah there’s one wire that runs back There Dennis but yeah and that comes off Both the blinkers I guess Should I take it off or not take it off Oh man I’m about to mess this bike Up We’re not Gonna be a go on this trip tomorrow I’m trying this is about the strip Though I don’t know why I’m trying to be Careful though let me see it just I just I felt it like it’s turning This is gonna be bad I can just feel it in my booms Okay this thing I mean we might as well just take the Tire off no why Now this won’t come out is there Something Okay So there’s this one big old wire thing Yes we gotta trace the wires up to here You think those are the blinkers Whatever wire goes in here is the Blinker wire That’s gonna be a different job [Applause] There we go right all right there you go All right yeah Juju An why is it not going in gotta push Yeah I pull the trigger while I do it
