Smoked lenses hide bands amber LED lamps that glow as running lamps when the ignition is on, and the two outer clusters function as auxiliary directional indicators when the turn signals are activated.

I've seen others with this trim but was a little afraid to buy it due to past issues. If mine is any indication, the product issues appear to have been fixed. It was a super easy install ( my skills are average and it took me about 45 minutes) and looks incredible with the LED turn signals I installed. One thing on the installation: To clear up the instructions which tell you to drill a hole in the fairing to "make it bigger," I would clarify that by saying you really don't have to make it wider, just more oval shaped towards the bottom.

I waited until I had ridden about 300 miles before writing a review, since some other reviewers have had issues. So far, I like the fit, the feel and the quality. Quite honestly, I have no clue what these gloves do for you regarding the operation of a touch screen. There is absolutely no difference in the operation of my touch screen while using these gloves or any other gloves I have worn. Yes, the tip of the thumb and index fingers have some stitching but in my opinion, it does nothing to enhance your ability to use your touch screen. So I recommend them for their fit and feel but don't buy them because you believe they'll help you operate your screen.

Inspired by the hearty look of work gloves, we engineered this pair of Tan Leather Gloves from goatskin. The tough-wearing leather adds top-quality and durability to these full-finger gloves.

I really liked the look of these gloves online so I went to the dealer to buy them. I have somewhat small hands (somewhere between a medium and a large) so when it comes to gloves, I have to try them on. I tried on the mediums and they were extremely tight so I went to the large. The larges were also extremely tight, which never happens to me. The XLs were the right feel for me regarding tightness but the fingers were way too long. That being said, they are a great look but I would not recommend buying them until you've tried them on. I personally couldn't find the right fit in any size.

I just got these boots. Since it is snowing in the Northeast, I'm not sure when I'll get to try them out on the road. They are high quality and you can order your usual size, since they run normal. The leather will need a little time to break in and loosen up a bit but they are definitely comfortable. Highly recommended.

I installed this rack on my Street Glide. It allows me to carry two bags on long trips, one on the seat and one on the rack itself. It is a little bit of a tight fit as other reviewers have pointed out, but not enough to deter you from purchasing it. I leave it on even when not in use because it adds a great chrome look to the bike. It's not an eyesore like some of the bigger racks, and doesn't require that you relocate the antenna.

This spray really gets into the hard to reach areas. With the small tube of Harley Lube, you were never really sure whether or not you fully lubricated the areas you can't see. With this spay, just spray it on, work the area that was lubed, and wipe off the excess. Great idea!

Love the look of your bike but hate the appearance of your state-mandated license plate? This stylish Curved License Plate Frame is shaped to hug the contour of the rear fender, and layback design reduces the "in-your-face" look of the flat, unfinished plate.

You will be surprised at how much a little thing like a curve license plate frame will change the look of the rear of your bike. This part follows the contour of the fender and saddlebags and adds a great appearance to your rear view. One note: if you are a novice, have the dealer do the install. Unless you have the rear tire off or you are really good with tools, it is incredibly difficult to access the two bolts from the inside of the fender. The dealer did it in a half-hour and saved me a lot of aggravation.

These grab rails are easy to install. When my kids were young, I felt a lot more secure with them holding onto these sturdy grab rails rather than the stock leather strap that came with the bike.

Decorative chrome latches are the perfect way to enhance the appearance of your detachables accessories. Meticulously polished and chrome-plated, these easy to install Latches are a direct replacement for the Original Equipment satin black parts, and are a simple way to add a finishing touch to your ride.

Has the fitment issue been corrected

I really like this rack but all three reviews on this site state that it doesn't fit right. Before I plop down 3 bills, can someone at the MOCO or someone who has recently bought this rack assure me that the fitment issues have been corrected?

The low-profile aerodynamic styling defines the look of this luggage rack. Designed to work with or without Detachable Passenger Backrests, this rack can be installed or removed from the docking hardware in seconds, creating a truly versatile ride.
 

Is antenna relocation required?

I have a 2014 Street Glide Special. The picture above shows this rack in place and the antenna still in the stock position. I have also seen street glides with the stealth rack without the antenna relocated. Is relocation required or is the picture on this site a mistake?

If you want more torque from your Twin Cam-equipped model, this kit provides a freer breathing capability to pump-up the power of your EFI-equipped motorcycle.
 

Support induction module bracket

Several people have asked whether it is necessary to remove the "Support Induction Module Bracket" as specified in the instructions. This step requires removal of the fuel tank and added a lot more time to the job. Am I wrong, or does the picture provided on H-D's website show that the bracket is still in place after the installation of the Stage 1 Air Cleaner?

Upgrade your Touring model's Original Equipment fender tip light from a single-mode running light to a dual-mode running and brake light.
 

Does it fit the Street Glide Special?

Under fitment for 2014 models, it only mentions the regular Street Glide. Does it also fit the Street Glide Special?

Cue the orchestra. We tuned these mufflers to provide an exhaust note with some extra deep bass.
 

Can you run the Street Cannons with the emblem on the inside so they are not showing?

Wondering if you can install these Harley Street Cannons so that the Screaming Eagle emblems are on the inside so they are hidden? Would think you could, but wanted to check first.

No. There are indentations on the inner area to accommodate other portions of the bike. It would not be a good look

End caps have very little if any effect on sound. That's the job of the pipes that you pick. End caps are for purely esthetic purposes.

do you have to drill holes in the rear fender to install this back rest bracket?

I Ride: 2008 Ultra Classic
There is no drilling required. It bolts onto the existing fender bolts and there is a metal extension that connects the mounting kit to existing holes in the frame. It's a half-hour job.

Cut through the night. Harley-Davidson Daymaker LED Lamps are brighter and whiter in color and provide a superior light pattern over standard incandescent lamps. Compared to the yellow light of a traditional halogen bulb, the LED lamp produces a "Daylight Color Impression" that appears more natural to the user.
 

Do I need the installation ring in 73390-10A kit or can I just install the lamp in my Heritage 2001 housing (lamp 73391-10A

I understand that both lamps are identical?
The new light comes with a new mounting ring so I would assume it is required.

I have a 2011 fatboy lo, will this work in my primary case and how much do I need?

I Ride: Fatboy Lo
SYN3 is designed to be used in all three compartments (i.e. Primary, transmission, and engine). So the answer to your question is yes. As far as amounts, it will be around a quart. I do this: I drain the primary into to a large, two-quart measuring cup; I then put that exact amount of new fluid in. It should be touching the bottom of the clutch pack. If needed, add a little more.
