Custom Dynamics Dynamic LED Vent Trim

It figures that Custom Dynamics waited until Sturgis to release these lights, after I'd already added the Ciro3D Fang lights to my "new to me" 2017 Road Glide Ultra (which I got 5JUL19). Of course, I was irritated by the blue tint of the Ciro3D lights as compared to the headlight and the Custom Dynamics ProBeam turn signal inserts and LED Windshield Trim that I'd added. So since I could finally fix that "problem", I ordered the Dynamic LED Vent Inserts as soon as I saw them on their site.

Installation is as simple as removing the outer fairing/vent/windshield, removing the Ciro headlight trim pieces and metal vent screens I had been running (if you don't have these, then you'd be removing the stock trim parts), and bolting the CD parts in their place. Be aware though- the wiring harness for the Vent Trim is identical to the Windshield Trim harness (there's an inline module on each; I guess it controls the 'switchback' function?), so connecting the two identical harnesses to the bike can be confusing if you're not paying attention. I think the final configuration was "Vent Inserts connected to the Windshield Trim, then the Windshield Trim connected to the bike". My first connection of all the plugs resulted in a misfire: the vent trim lit up both white and amber, and didn't flash properly. I changed the order of the connections on the left side (the only one I "messed up") and that fixed it. Sorry; I have no pics of the parts prior to install, nor any of the connections.

The "vent" portion is molded into the plastic frame of the headlight trim pieces: the lights themselves would be identical to the Ciro parts except for the vent grill being integrated and the lack of a "lens" that the Ciro parts have. The vent grill doesn't FULLY cover the opening- you can see a gap around the perimeter from inside the fairing, but looking at the front, it fills in the gap well. Looking at the front of the bike, you can't tell the grill isn't completely covering the vent opening. Pics are included to try to show this.

Overall, I like them a lot. Now the headlight trim lights match the rest of the front lighting perfectly. My only complaint would be that the instruction sheet's pictures are far too dark- though if you've ever taken the outer fairing off, most of the instructions wouldn't be necessary. It's a very simple installation, and the finished product looks great.

Anyone want to buy a set of lightly used (approx. 1 month) Ciro3D FANG LED headlight trim (black)!?

Here are a few more pics (5 is the limit):

The first pic is in full amber flash (windshield trim, vent trim and turn signals are all CD parts in this pic), the second is the initial look at the Vent Trim installed (no outer fairing), the third pic is what the trim looks like on the bike from a front-angle, and is a comparison to the fourth pic, which shows roughly the same angle but the Ciro3D trim. The last pic is the Ciro3D trim lit up: note the bluish tint compared to the windshield trim and turn signal inserts.

Just my .02 but to me the Ciro ones look like a nicer product. The CD ones look like something Kury would make.

IMO I think they look great.

More lighting is always a good thing.

I agree. They look great but no better than what I currently have: Ciro Fang lights and separate vent screens. If I were starting from scratch I might go with these out of convenience of only having to buy one piece.

If Ciro's LEDs were the same color temp as the Custom Dynamics stuff, I'd have kept them on the bike...but that blue tint bugged me!

BOTH parts are nice and add light to the nose: and both are quality parts. But I'm OCD about some things...and the lighting all 'matching' is one of those things!

I just saw these installed on a customer bike today, and personally I like them better than the Ciro ones. Didn't think i was gonna care for them at all, but they actually look really nice. Might get some myself eventually.
