i'll know in 15 day. i already purchased the KFI mount just waiting to go pick up the bike. from the looks of the pics the dealer sent me, reaching the freespool is going to be tough. but there appears to be just a plastic valence around that area that a large 4-5" holesaw should fix that access problem. Though that idea makes me cringe.... i also know they make plastic snap in hole seals. possibly that might make cutting a hole in your brand new machine a little less painful.
