Easy install however when installing the small spacer, I used a little bit of silicone adhesive to hold it in place on the inside of the chrome rear shifter cover, I would think if it drops good luck finding it. Also thought rear shifter bolt could be longer and a lock nut used. I used Loctite on both bolts as told to do in instructions, should be ok. LOOKS GREAT and shifts perfect.

I took my first ride with the Wind Splitter windshield today. I must say I did not think it would stay on but it DOES. Follow directions when installing .The vent for wind direction works well once you get it adjusted as you ride. If you like wind in your face this is the windshield for you. No Head buffeting at all to mention but a lot of wind noise under the helmet . This will be the perfect windshield for around town for me. I much prefer my 22 inch high windshield if I am going to ride on the High Speed highways, simply because there is no loud wind noise and better face and eye protection.

High Windshield

Love the benefits of a tall windshield 22 inch ,2 inches over my stock 20 inch shield on my 2010 Road King Classic. In my case very very little head Buffeting at high speeds . I was amazed that 2 inches taller would make that kind of difference in head Buffeting. Replaced my stock 20 inch windshield in about half an hour. ,I used a flat utility knife razor blade to get under chrome strips and slide blade gently to remove them from old windshield. Just read instructions and install is easy. Only one drawback, I don't like looking through the windshield instead of over it, sort of distorts images through my prescription sun glasses but I am getting used to it its nothing critical. I like this windshield on long fast speed I 95 trips, good rain and head protection.

Product adds beauty and protection for my saddlebags to my already beautiful 2010 Road King Classic,Install is simple, read instructions. Took me about 1 hour . Be very careful with the small chrome bolts supplied to hold the rail to the rear Road bar. I cross threaded one but ACE hardware came through with a new one.., Thread the small bolts first into the forward loose chrome piece that holds rail to road bar before install ,when you install they should thread easy. I used a drop of Loctite on all bolts.

With a serious nod to the past, the Nostalgic Collection applies a fresh twist to a classic design. The chrome surround and raised rubber shapes outline the historic shield and name band that has been at the center of Harley-Davidson Original Equipment footboards for years.

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.

They fog up...4th one to fog on me...now out of warranty :-(
By DaveRider from Salinas, CA
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT. I have gone through 4 LED lamps because they fog up. Fortunately the first 3 were within 3 months of buying them. They replaced them with a newer version with a product number that ends in the letter A that Harley Davidson says fixes their seal problem. Yes, they fixed THEIR problem with this product revision...since the seal seems to last approx. 15 - 18 months, long enough for them to go out of warranty, and then they fog up. So what do I do after the warranty has expired? Now that I have spent $800 on the headlamp and aux lamps? I can't install incandescent bulbs as they most certainly won't match the headlamp in color. Poorly built product.

Yellow Ring on White Walls
By AtlantaJoe from Atlanta, GA
I have had this tire now for about 18 months and although I am happy with the performance of the tire in general, I am disappointed with the white wall aspect. No matter what I do to clean/bleach the white wall, there is a noticeable yellow ring around the edge of the white wall about 1/4 inch thick. The rest of the white wall is clean except for this yellow ring. Same tire on the rear but no issues with the yelolow ring?? Unfortunately my Road King Classic doesn't look completely clean wth this yellow ring on the front tire.

Loctite 243 is a medium strength, general purpose thread locking adhesive, especially well-suited for fasteners between 1/4" and 3/4" diameter (6 to 20mm).
 

is the price really $ 40.95 ?

Having ordered a new shifter arm for my bike they recommend using Loctite 243 on the nuts that hold it to the bike

Is the price of the Loctite really $ 40.95 a bottle. a little outrageous id say

These traditional leather-look saddlebags are a direct replacement for the Color-Matched Hard Saddlebags featured on the Road King model, and their installation transforms the look of your ride.
 

Are these replacement bags for my 2010 Road King Classic Saddlebags

I am looking to replace my old original saddlebags on my 2010 Road King Classic. These bags look identical to my bags but fitment does not include my bike.

Yellow ring all around whitewall by the rim

Have they fixed the yellow ring problem on there tires.?
,I will be in the market for new tires soon But before I buy Dunlop White wall tires again from my Harley dealer I want to see the tire, both white walls must be of smooth almost plastic material and not feel or look like fabric white wall this is the one that turns yellow and then have them installed. I made a mistake by not looking at them 20K miles ago ( they wear well) you can see the yellow ring rite away

It's a hard truth when you ride free: sometimes the weatherman is a buzz kill. But there's no need to pull over and wait it out if you pack the Brother's Ride Rainsuit. Waterproof 100% nylon defends against the rain while a mesh jacket lining adds some breathability. See the list below for other weather-tight features...
 

Does this rain suit come with a storage bag?
