Ashtray Installation on a SUZUKI SV1000S

I was sitting around bored today still reeling from the double enchilada and taco plate @ the restaurant last night thinking to myself, "What can I do on this rainy day without getting too wet...?" then the answer came to me from the midst of my hazy, smoky reverie: Install an ashtray on my Suzuki SV1000S!! So that's what I did.

Here goes:

1. The required parts:

2. Mounting location on the left clip-on next to clutch perch:

3. Clearance made for mount next to clutch perch:

4. Mount and mounting hardware:

5. Mount installed next to clutch perch: (Note-- the nuts are not tightened perfectly even but it's close enough for me)

6. Parts left to install:

7. Clamp in position:

8. Holder installed:

9. Rubber installed:

10. Ashtray installed:

11. Favorite Smokes:

12. Lighting Up:

13. Ashtray in Use:

So there is my 13 slide presentation on installing and using an ashtray on my Suzuki SV1000S.

Coming soon: Coffee Shop Road Trip!!
