    Absolutely the Easiest TW Modification Ever!

    Just install one or two binder clips as shown below:

    These are handy for holding trails maps, bridge tolls, etc.

    I have personally tested these at triple digit speeds (in kilometers per hour !) and they have never failed.

    Thanks for sewing doubt in my mind ... I was planning on throwing that little fairing off and replacing the headlamp / speedo / warning indicator array with something more retro! LOL!

    I don't know, looks terribly expensive Brian, and will they fit a 2003?
    Plus, do I need to change suspension settings due to additional downforce they will generate at triple digit speeds?
    Before I added my Jimbo shield I found that our standard size folded Forest Service maps fit perfectly without need for restraint even on my easy trails. Now I'll try your clips. Thanks.

    I have a handful of those clips in every vehicle, mostly to close partially eaten bags of stuff. Never thought about using them there though. Thanks Brian, good idea.

    Those clips are ideal for holding the seat covering in place before stapling. Allows stretching and frees you hands.

    Yep, that pin is the fine work of our fellow forum member Rhodetrip.
