1986-2006 JUNCTION BOX REPAIR - The Concours Junction Box is a weak link in the Concours' electrical system. J-Boxes typically fail in the 50-60,000 mile area due to stress corrosion of the relay's solder joints, or excessive electrical loads on the relays caused by using J-Box leads or the bike's wiring harness to provide power for accessories, thus placing higher load(s) on a relay.
Stress corrosion causes heat buildup, and higher resistance, that eventually causes the relay to fail. Depending on which relay fails, the headlight, accessories, or engine may be affected. Typically, these relays give some warning before failure by operating intermittently when warm/hot, but may operate normally when cold. These are the warning signs of pending failure, it's only a matter of time. Don't let J-Box failure leave you stranded - the dealers do not stock them and the cost can exceed $200.00 for a new one.
I do not check your relays and only replace the bad one(s). My service replacesall your J-box's relays with new, higher capacity ones, thus assuring ample reserve current carrying capacity. All diodes are checked and replaced as necessary. Other soldered connections and fuse holders are inspected and repaired as necessary. Damaged/delaminated circuit board traces are repaired if possible. Future stress corrosion is greatly reduced by the techniques used in the rebuilding process. Refurbished junction boxes are warranted for 1 year from the date of shipment. The rebuilding of your j-box takes 1-2 days after receipt. Return is by Priority Mail.
NOTE: When sending your J-box for rebuilding; remove the cover, all fuses, the fuse pulling tool, fan fuse bracket and the rubber, damper strap. Send to the address on the Contact page.

FAIRING POCKET KNOB - How many times have you wished you could get something out of a fairing pocket (ear plugs, tire gauge, side stand plate, windshield cleaner, etc.) without having to take your key out of the ignition switch first? !#%&+! Help is just a mouse click away.
If you can remove your lock from the compartment cover (the directions tell you how), and follow the included instructions, in a few minutes you will have easy access to your fairing pocket after installing the parts in this kit. This item sure isn't rocket science, but it is something you'll appreciate nearly every time you ride. Nothing to rust, as the hardware is stainless steel, per my usual practice.

How to try the "ZG" Bars position for yourself.
Note: You must have risers installed to do this test.
1. Loosen the pinch bolt on each bar.
2. Remove the 2 bolts at the base of each bar that locate it on the triple tree.
3. Rotate your bars toward you (when seated on the bike), so that the bar's closest hole is located between the 2 holes in the riser. Snug up the pinch bolts.This is the "ZG" bar position.
DO NOT RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE UNTIL YOUR BARS ARE RETURNED TO THE ORIGINAL POSITIONS AND ALL BOLTS ARE SECURED TO FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS.
