Set your custom bagger apart with a low-profile solo seat that combines street-rod style with a surprising touch of comfort. Start with a shape that distributes your weight across a wide surface area to reduce pressure points.

Of course this seat came in on the coldest day of the year so I haven't ridden with it yet. The look is incredible and so far, it feels great to sit on. I had no problem at all covering the bolts like other reviewers had. I just ordered a solo luggage rack to go with it. As for the color, it is looks like it was made to go with Amber Whiskey.

I have had this air cleaner on my Street Glide since 2014 and I've already reviewed it with the old, dull, ugly backplate. I'm not happy with the fact that I had to pay an additional $70 dollars to order the new chrome backplate, but I am glade that it is available separately, thereby making it easy to replace the original. The new chrome backplate makes an incredible difference in the appearance. And since it is also available In black, it should work for any color bike. Why was it ever released in that old dull metallic color?! At least we know the MoCo listens to riders, since many of the reviewers commented on the ugliness of the original air cleaner. As far as the overall performance, there is a noticeable increase in sound and performance. The only issue is the recalibration download that has to be performed at the Dealership; taking that requirement into consideration, the price more than doubles.

This is a warm comfortable accessory. The reason I am only giving it 3 stars is the fact that it leaves you with two choices: Since there are no breathing holes, you either have to leave your nose exposed or deal with the fact that your breath will escape through the eye opening and fog your glasses at every stop, regardless of how cold it is. I replaced it with the models that cover the nose and has nostril and mouth holes.

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.

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.

Chrome Back Plate

Can those of us who purchased the older version that wasn't chrome, purchase just the chrome backplate?

Style and practicality in one. This classic four-bar H-D Detachables luggage rack flows with the long and lean lines of today's custom rides.
 

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?

Screaming eagle stage 1 air cleaner

What is the difference between part #29400129 and 29400234.

Will the stock air cleaner cover from a 2014 touring work on either.
I Ride: 2014 street glide special
The one ending in 129 is the older version that has a dull-colored ugly backplate. The one ending in 234 comes with a chrome or black backplate. Don't get the dull one!! It is ugly!! I had it when it was the only option available but just went for an addition $65 to upgrade the backplate to chrome. But yes, the stock air cleaner cover will fit both.

Clean and restore the original performance of K&N-type air filter elements. The washable and rechargeable filter used a special coating to help filter fine particles from the incoming air.
 

Is this the air cleaner/degreaser used on the SE Ventilator air cleaner (part # 29490-09)

K & N cleaners state that they are for their products only. But as far as a cleaner goes, I can't see it hurting your washable air cleaner, since it is "soap-like" product. Obviously, do not use K & N oil on the HD filter, since they are not made to be oiled like K & N.

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.

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.
