Custom Dynamics Tri-Bar heads up

For those interested, a rep from Custom Dynamics was telling me that an updated ProBeam version of their Tri-bar light (the one that goes in the bottom of the rear fender) is due in mid to late March. Figured you guys might be interested in knowing.

Cool, I love CD's stuff but the tribar I installed didn't impress me much. It's better than the stock light but the LEDs are too far inside the housing and it's only bright at certain angles. My CD taillights look brighter when you're right behind me. I wanted it all to match. That was the whole point of changing it. Hopefully that's corrected with the new design.

I have the tribar and have the same complaint about it only being bright at certain angles.

I had emailed CD last year and asked why the new pro beams wouldn’t work if you have the tribal installed.... the answer I was given was because the PB leds need a 12 volt feed all the time and having the tribar installed with the flasher module doesn’t provide that.

That issue only applies to 2013 and older bikes. 2014 has a different tribar number with the same LED array.

I put a Tri-bar fascia on my old 2009 bike, and did a custom wiring job to get it working. The stock HD LED's in there were basically useless. You could not see them unless you were laying on the ground (I had Run/Brake lights).

I replaced it with the CD unit and a flasher. Then, everyone could see them just fine.

I was washing the bike after my Alaska trip, and noticed that some of the Tri-Bar LED's were not lit. So, at 10:00 pm, I take a picture of it, go to the CD web site, hit their support request link and post the picture, along with all the information they requested. Mind you, this was 10:00 pm CDT.

At 7:00 am the next morning, I go downstairs to work (I work from home), open my home email account and there is a message from CD Support indicating that my replacement Tri-Bar light was on order, should be there in two days!

I do not have the 2009 any longer, traded for a 2018 FLTRU (after 150,000 miles). It does not have a Tri-Bar, but a cheapo pieced of chromed plastic on the fender tip (which I replaced with a CD Light, easy bolt on). If it had a Tri-Bar, and CD came out with ProBEAM replacement, I would highly recommend getting it (I would replace mine if I had it). I have their ProBEAM Fillerz and Taillight and they certainly get your attention. I just ordered their new ProBEAM front turn signals, in Amber.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
