Installing a accessory plug problem

I'm in the process of installing a lighter type plug in the fairing of the WEE2
But--------------
I have lifted the tank(aint that some process)to run wires(fused) from the battery.The removal of enough fairing to actually get at the vertical surfaces ideally placed for such a plug has got me beat.
Did a search but still can find the answer.HELP

You might try the Twisted Throttle website. Iirc, they have quite a few install instructions which might cover the item you're trying to do.

G'day KIWI
Yep I have all the stuff off to lift the tank.Its up and the wires are ready to go but ------what I would like to do is put the NARVA plug in one of those small vertical surfaces that are on each side of the Wee2 fairing.Where the WARNING sticker is on the RHS.
Problem is,what can I remove to get at the back of the plastic.I can get my fingers in there but if I'm going to drill the fairing I would like better than that.
Stuffed if I can work out how to remove any panels that will access that area.
Cheers, Macca

I would suspect that you work from the front. Take the screen off and undo any screws that you find behind it. The front of the fairing attached to a big bracket that sticks out from the steering head between the headlights. What often happens is the the instrument binnacle is put on first then the fairing goes on last on top of it.

I will give that a try tomorrow.May as well go for broke,its a learning experience.
And I used to bitch about taking the tank off the 08 KLR.Compared to the Wee2 its a walk in the park.

I now know which one I will be using for the isolated areas.Imagine changing the Wee air filter on the Strzelecki Track(not that I intend to take it out there anyway :mrgreen

While you have the tank off check the air inlet. I assume that it is the same as the previous model with a snorkel arrangement that draws air up from above the radiator. If it is put a piece of mesh over the inlet (window fly screen is perfect) and secure it with a large cable tie or a couple of smaller ones joined.
That inlet is a magnet for flying things and you won't believe the number of bugs, wasps, and dead things you will find on top of the air filter after a short while. That simple piece of mesh halves your cleaning chores.
