      My apologies. Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures. Having said that once you have the right tools it’s pretty straightforward. Nothing complicated. As an update to my earlier post I did swapped the fairing ones with Hertz CX130. Believe me guys those hertz are real garbage. I found very hard to believe that they sounded awful as there are many amazing reviews on the internet. I never had Hertz before and never again. Anyway long story short I have ordered another set of Polk DB522s for the fairing. Polks were incredibly balanced in the way they sound.
      Cheers

      Using your instructions I decided to try my tour back speakers. I replaced them with the Kicker 43DSC504 D-Series 5.25" 200W 2-Way 4-Ohm Car Audio Coaxial Speakers from Amazon, https://amzn.to/3uJP2CV

      Here are some pics for comparison as well as the rivet and screw you mentioned. I also reused the integrated amp with the Kickers.

      Interesting, how is the sound? Hopefully the aftermarket will come up with more powerful amps. You need a lot of power to overcome wind noise

      One huge giant misconception that these pictures covey is that the speaker on the right is better because of the bigger magnet. Completely false. The bigger magnet is a ceramic magnet and is the cheapest least efficient magnet you can get on speakers, they are popular because they are cheap.

      The factory speaker uses a lightweight powerful Neodynium magnets. These are much more expensive, reliable and very consentient. They are used in high grade applications were sound accuracy is important. They use them in motorcycles due to their weight savings.

      The biggest weakness in the Indian bikes is the amps, put the stock speakers in a quality amp and you will be surprised on how good they sound.
