    Check the lower part of the painted cowl, in front of where your knees go.



    I lost the twist knob to my GPS' RAM mount one day before setting off. I heard it fall down, but looked everywhere and couldn't find it. I figured it hit the floor and rolled somewhere, so I got my other one and left for the day. Couldn't find it in the garage when I got back, so I figured it got lost and bounced out at some point during the day.

    Two months later I get around to washing the bike and notice that that panel kind of rattled when I pressed on it. I started to investigate and out falls my GPS knob (of course I had already bought a new one).

    Thanks, I have to change the oil today so I'll have a check in that area.

    So I decided to tackle this Frunk key solution. Went to autozone and bought know assortment, had spare key made, and bought quick steel weld. See the pics for exact stuff I bought. I cut ket, slide into knob, filled with quick steel, sanded down after it dried and then taped of and painted. See all pics, tell me what you think.

    Thanks for the frunk trick, made my own unlock key using an old amp knob, quite inconspicuous.

    Cheers. Creating a dedicated key for the storage compartment-imageuploadedbytapatalk1435232347-434046-jpg
