Adding King Tour Pak (with lights) to a Special

Today I drilled my Tour Pak to accept the OEM led light bar. I was worried I would screw up using a template so I spent a little extra money, got a donor light and made a template out of it. I closed up all the holes that were not to be drilled and marked all of the holes to be drilled with some paint....didn't want to take any chances of drilling in the wrong place



The template enabled me to clamp the light bezel in place, drill my holes and mount the new light in short order.



I stopped to take a pic before finishing the big hole for the light connection as I didn't want to forget to show a pic of the holes



And here it is mounted.



Next will be wiring it up.

One thing I am unsure on is the CB antenna and why Harley didn't bring the full coax to the antenna base like they do on the AMFM antenna. The same antenna base will work on the CB side and it could still be grounded to the metal plate in the base of the tour pak like the AMFM antenna setup.

Anyone know?

The tour pak is wired up and lights work. Just waiting on the local Harley shop to get the AM/FM cable in and I'll have full functionality. I am also using the Custom Dynamics Magic Strobes and it strobes the light right in sync with the others

I am not sure if I am going to add speaker pods so I ran the harness through the floor of the tour pak. The QD mount makes for a great place to run wire though I will need to get some trim to keep the wire from chaffing on the edge.

Rather simple install really...just need to get the liner to finish it off.






I also want to get a set of the side marker light to get rid of the chrome trim.

That tourpak looks real nice.
How was it drilling the mounting holes in the tourpak plastic....did the paint chip out or did it make for a clean hole.
I'm in the process of drilling four holes in the lid of my tourpak to mount a luggage rack.....looks kinda scary!
Thanks.

Thanks! I am pleased with the way it turned out.

Drilling was very easy, no chipping and nice clean holes. I used sharp bits at about mid speed on a 2000 rpm drill. For the big hole where the plug goes I used a die grinder with some weird bit I have, drilled a hole and opened it up.

It really couldn't have gone any better....

Looking good. I went with the late model king like yours but left the lights off. Now your are making me rethink that.

All you have to do now is paint the black border of your light bar the same color as your bike.
