Sorry it took so long

It took me a bit longer than anticipated to to do the install. Two days 20 plus hours. Ran into some snags ie: stock clutch cable was cross threaded and I had to re-tap cover. Molex connectors were a PITA!!!!!!! I was able to use the stock brake line with No problems what so ever. Also no electrical extensions were needed either. I installed SoCal HIDs (see picture below), as well as JM Rokkers and 250W 2ch amp. Both of those installs were a piece of cake. With the foam acoustic pad installed in the fairing, I mounted the ballasts for the HID light on top of the Headlight housing with Velcro, it fits just fine. The speakers are a huge improvement over stock and the HIDs are FREAKIN awsome!!

Thank you. How do they compare to the wild 1 outlawz? Can't find the post but I read the malos were hard to get comfortable with the width.

how do they compare? well, to me, the outlawz are ugly. dont think they look good on the road glide. and they're only 1.25. the malo's in my opinion are perfect for the road glide. the mad doggers are also dope bars. i havent read anywhere that the malos were too wide. they are normal width.
