YES ~ The can see you in the Daylight & you can see them at night ~ I installed and had a helluva squeak ~ I reinstalled with a thin piece of thin self adhesive piece of foam that I put a light coat of dielectric grease on ~ No More Squeak ~ Daymakers are a phenomenal improvement...

Over the winter I plan on having the following done:

Inner fairing painted

4 channel amp installed (might as well, as they will already have it apart)

Hidden attenna

New lowers with speaker

Upgrades over the Winter

I live in NY. No Winter riding here. I have a 2012 Road Glide Ultra. Shortly after taking possession I put a Stage one kit, Heavy Breather and Big Louies on it. Lowered it front and rear with a lower seat. This Winter we're doing Hog Tunes front, rear and the tweeter kit around the gauges. I'm also mounting a Tour Pak luggage rack, not an Air Wing, and 12 1/2" Chubby Apes. The Wife is NOT happy !

Update: ok rear CVO fender and fascia mod ordered. Also Yaffe stealth III license plate bracket, and Yaffe scoowl ordered as well. Most of the parts going to my painter as well as the CVO extended bags to get pinstripe put on. Daymaker LED's to be ordered in two weeks. This will complete the cosmetic portion of winter mods. Then after the first of the year it will be engine time. Be back with pics after first portion is done. undecided yet about the Yaffe black 10" gorilla bars.

Well new scoot and I will be back at it again, but not really a winter here it's riding time now lol.

I have a 13" madstad en route which was not planned but it happened.

Biggest debate now is whether or not to start with cams on a new bike or just do stage 1 for now.

Would also like to do the brake/turn/run mod out back and get nicer turn signals up front. Painted inner fairing, iPod interface of some kind, fitted glove box liners and saddle bag liners, and more comfortable handlebars. GPS would be nice too I'm riding a lot more and further away and it's nice when you come across a new route that's a good ride to just save it, lol.

A lot will depend on cash of course, lol. We will see.......

Good thing is bike already came with chrome front end and Agitator wheels

my feeling is that a simple set of brake pads could trigger a
$10k mods avalanche, so probably just pads, tires and oil, and
see what comes along, hopefully not much, too expensive being cool
