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.

I replaced the black latches on my backrest and luggage rack for a great chrome look. In my opinion, these latches should be standard on all chrome products with rotary latches.

This revolutionary cleaner lets riders wash their bikes where they want to - in the sun. Most bike wash products can be used only on cool days or in the shade.

Although this product does what it says, it does no better than any other soap on the market. For the price you can get triple the amount of another brand and get the same results.

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.

K&N replacement air filters are engineered to improve airflow for increased horsepower and quicker acceleration. K&N filters provide excellent filtration, and because they are washable and reusable, you can clean the filter whenever conditions demand.

I was concerned when I applied this product to my seat, since it goes on black similar to shoe polish. My concern was that it would come off the seat and turn my pants black after a long sweaty ride. I applied it, thoroughly buffed it off, and went on a four state ride in 90 degrees and pure humidity. None of it wound up on pants and it did an excellent job of rejuvenating my seat. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I wish it left a shinier finish. Although it leaves a matted finish, it does a great job of making the seat look like new.

I bought a pack of these about five years ago and have used only one. Not that their quality is poor but they really aren't practical. I can find no part of a motorcycle that really needs these strips to be properly cleaned.

Add functional lighting to the rear of your Touring bike. These running, directional and brake lights command the attention of following vehicles.

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?

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.
I Ride: 2014 Ultra Limited
No. There are indentations on the inner area to accommodate other portions of the bike. It would not be a good look

Does this change the sound? If so in what way?

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.

Required to install rider backrest on '88-'08 Touring models.
 

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 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.
