canadian glide tri-bar light

Well folks, this is the first project i took pictures of so i thought i should share it with everybody. As a Canadian we don't have the try bar light due to a bullshit govt law!!!

what's needed

light @68358-07A
T20 driver
7/16 socket / wrench
ratchet
#2 phillips
mini slot screwdriver
slot screw driver
silicone

Start by getting the bike ready, I put it up on the jack for ease, remove saddlebags and left side cover.

Remove the six 7/16 nuts on both sides and there is one holding the wires on the inside of the fender tailpiece. once its all removed you need to remove the light from the tailpiece by the 2 torx screws.

Light modification is next. Both lights need to be dissambled carefully. You will remove the circut board from the new light and install it on the stock light . BE CAREFULL on disassembly .I found it easier to cut the harness on the new light and reassembly it later, I cut it mebbe 6" from the end that plugs into the tourpack harness. pics to follow in next post

the plug you need pictured and the part you need to remove from the new light and install on the old one. You need to keep the old light because the factory wiring has to stay with the bike and the new light doesnt have the hook up for it.

when installing the circut board on the old light i just drilled a hole for the wires to come through. Once the old housing has been modified to accept the wiring it's time to reinstall everything.

when putting the light back together i used silicone around all the seals to keep things waterproof.

When the light is reassembled you can start putting thing together again. i tywraped the new wires to the antenna wire and the factory harness to the side panel.

Klaysounds, it might make it even easier for your buddies if you can get them part # 67774-10. That one might be plug and play im not sure as we cant get it in Canada!! or they may just have to extend a wire or two.

I was able to get an old tri light from one of the members who had upgraded theres. I just have it light up all the time as a running light. It sure looks a lot better with a light back there.

Cool

Just bought a 2015 RGS. Question: if I install the tri light am I at risk on getting hassled or is this just a law that effects the manufacturer?

Manufacturing / import DOT regulation, not a Highway Traffic Act concern for riders.

BTW if your not a do it yourself'r and want to pay some one to do it, Barrie Harley (local & great dealer) does them. Most Ontario dealers will do them.
