Good looking scooter! I'm a little behind the curve, did you have to add ballasts for the led's?
No ballast, the head and passing lamps are HD and plug and play. The turn signals are Probeam and plug and play as well.
Need more Electra Glide Pics.
So come on and post up.
No new FLHT pics lately. Will take some tomorrow. In the meantime........here's my beard!
Well damn, here is mine as well.
Should be getting a Freedom Shields Touring 12" tomorrow. I'll put up some pix when I get her installed. Oh, and I put on a K-long word batwing air deflector right before the rains started. I'll try to get it out on the road to see how it does before putting on the new wind screen.
High of 70 here in N Tejas today. I am going to sneak out of the house for a ride sometime.
What is a K-long deflector?
What is a K-long deflector?
Nevermind...looked it up. I ran all summer without the lower deflectors. Less turbulence without them, in combination with the fangs. I put them back on night before last along with one pair of my hard lowers because of the cooler temps we've had this week. (50's and 60's). Will see how that combo works out this weekend. One set of my lowers creates more buffet than the other different design set.
Sorry bout that, I was to lazy to look up how to spell kuryakyn, and auto correct had pissed me off by then.
I did have the fangs on, but they don't fit with the passing lamp brackets. So they sit all lonely in the garage. Couldn't find a HD set, but I think Eglide goodies makes some that will fit.
Here is the deflector that I was talking about.
I am looking into the soft deflectors that slip on over the crash bars for this winter.
I use those on my Road King. I like them.
Don’t know that they solve the same problem the fangs do tho. I don’t expect them to solve head buffeting. I keep them in my saddlebag and pull them out when I get caught in the rain. They help a lot with cold too. Another nice thing, moving my feet around at >80MPH becomes much easier.
They are much easier to take off than the fairing lowers in the summer too.
Yea, I’m a fan.
Are you using the HD ones or another brand? I have seen some leather ones that look pretty nice, but not sure of their durability in regards to the rain.
Genuine Harley-Davidson Accessory
Stopped in the HD dealership in Troy, NY a couple of weeks ago, on the final leg of a New England tour. They had a used Electra Glide Standard that had the aftermarket Sony stereo in it. The sales person turned it on, and I have to say, it blew away the standard and higher end stereo that comes with a StreetGlide / Special. Beautiful sound that actually had bass in it. Only downside was the sales guy thought it couldn't be hooked up to hand controls on the grip.
If you're looking for a stereo in your EGS, it seems like a fantastic option.
Flebay has some really inexpensive hard lowers if anyone is interested. I saw some for $55-$65
As to the soft lowers I have the HD nylon with reflective piping. They are the quickest to install/remove. The styling may put some off. They have a tag that says do not use above 50 degrees F.
I also have the desert Dawgs they look more traditional, installation or removal stilll quite simple. They do not have a temp restriction.
I have both so I don't have to switch between the EG and RG when its cooler out.
I have the H-D soft lowers and they definitely increased the buffeting I feel on my Road King. They do a good job of blocking wind/cold to your lower legs and thighs, though, but I don't know that it was worth it with the added buffeting. That was with the fangs. Lowers plus fangs = buffeting. No lowers and fangs = little to no buffeting. Weird.
Got my Freedom Shields 12” Touring in today and mounted it. Going to try to get a ride in this evening or in the morning. I have the Police seat installed and will see how that works out. Sitting on it the screen is about 2ish inches below my line of sight.
Edit: have some 10” bars arriving tomorrow as well.
Any info on the Sony stereo? Looking to add to my FLHTP.
About to head out to Lubbock Tejas. Get a TOH memorial and a couple of Grand tour of Tejas points.
