Adjustment Tab Broken

Put this in my adaptive thread also , one of the three plastic locking tabs that holds the light assembly in place with the adjustment bolts was broken , one of the spreader wings to be pacific .. Never had it happen before and no Harley didnt have them , but I still had the ones off the old assembly ..

FWIW

67981-98A pack of three and most dealers dont have them in stock , here was on back order with unknown arrival date ..

And yes they have a red pepper CVO on the floor at MSRP and a couple Ultras just under MSRP .. And no I didn't ..

You can always go back and check out that CVO, that way you donít have to wait on parts.

Can honestly say this is the first CVO RG I really really like , but like I told the dood , there's one issue with the CVO : payments ..

I'd love one , but time you put a tour pak and a few other bits on you are pushing 48 which is freaking insane ... Heck MSRP is insane ..

I can't fit a new CVO into my budget but even if I could I would have a hard time with putting it through the wear and tear that I do on bikes. I would take care of it the best I could but just the normal stuff that comes with riding it a lot. It would drive me nuts when I would find a new paint chip or scratch on my Skunk even though it's to be expected. The only choice I had would've been to leave it parked in a garage under a cover and just bring it out on special occasions but I always said that I bought the bike to ride so that what I did. Now with my vivid black RGS I will not worry so much about the paint over time. It's easy to match or it's easy to change the color if I ever want something special. I guess what I'm getting at is that I love the new CVO's and it would kill me to get one rock chip in it so I would rather just admire them from a far. Now you could always get a new Ultra.

See I am in the same boat with you Kenny .. With the wear and tear and the fact that I really do ride mine ..

I like the Ultra , the red and gray is nice , and in reality at just under 27 it's probably not bad , seeing as how my 11 was twenty two and this is eight model years newer , and considering the new motor and all the other stuff ..

But I love my '11 .. Wifey tells me it looks like crap compared to everyone else's , but dang I ride it and I dont spend a day detailing after a ride ..

you can probably repair the tab with a product called plastifix.
a quick search on utube will show you what its all about .
I have repaired several tabs with great success using this product.

Nobody deserves to have Steady Eddie in them, that's just wrong man.

Those plastic adjusters have been breaking since shortly after they were put into the first Caddy with rectangular lamps.

I have a big assortment of them around here somewhere, left over from the 90's. And I'd bet a few bucks that the ones the MoCo uses are in there. Some leftover crap that the MoCo got sold by Delphi.
