In case anyone is still following this thread... I'm finally getting around to installing my GPS mount and a new dashcam system on my '12. Will it be sufficient to remove the sidepanels to fish the wiring from the front of the bike to the battery compartment? If not, will simply lifting up the rear of the fuel tank give enough access, or do I need to remove it completely? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
