Ordering king T/P looking for advice

So I'm starting the winter build and I'm going to order a king T/P. I thought chopped but I can't pass up the taller space of the king.

I need advice from those with T/Ps on what I should and shouldn't buy accessory-wise. I'd like to buy this at once, not have to keep adding to it.

I know that I want a luggage rack on top and I'll most likely light it. I doubt I'll buy the wrapped light bar though because my plan is to switch my rear to CVO. Premium latches in black. Antennas aren't a concern as we listen to music on my phone and there's no cb.

Thoughts?

I agree with King, space is nice. Luggage rack on top is also great to have. Are you going with the quick detach or just going to keep it permanently mounted?

I'd recommend one of the bigger racks for the top. I have a small rack on my chopped TPand it's hard to strap a bag on without rubbing the paint. Also recommend speaker pods even if you don't put speakers in them, just to make the king TP look complete.

I dont know. We discussed this too. I have the sissy bar and airwing lighted rack and I haven't taken these off since I installed em. Do you think I should still get the quick detach anyway or just hard wire it? The only reason I can think of to remove it would be cleaning. I ride to work when I can so I bring a duffle bag(lunch/papers/etc) that needs to be out of the weather.

I was looking at the air wing rack so I can add lights to it.

I have given thoughts to the speaker pods but I don't know how those will look with a chopped style backrest. We are on the fence about the size because she is 6' and doesn't like being pushed to far forward.

Does the interior light work all that well to buy it? What about the USB plugin? Do these come carpeted or is that extra?

you sound like you have a good plan. on the mounting rack, there are 2 sets of mounting holes to give you a little adjustabililty. if they aren't enough, there is enough room to drill a couple more, if that still isn't enough, then you can look at tourpak relocators. the george anderson product is awesome.

for the light, i would pass on that. i bought an led light bar from the grocery store for $6.00. has 5 leds on it, sticks to the lid, is push button activated, and you can adjust it to shine where you want it to.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

If you don't think you're going to take it off other than to clean, then I say get a fixed. I believe it will save you quite a bit of money. I mean, do you take your passenger seat off to clean? I know I don't. Dont think I'd take a tour pak off either.

I agree, the king tour pak does look odd with out speakers

I have a quick detach. I only ride with it on during road trips, cold season, or if its going to be a longer ride with the g/f. I typically ride with a solo seat so the quick detach is great for me. That being said, when my tour pak is on, it rattles like a mother every time I hit a bump, I assume because its quick detach and not very rigid. Doesn't bother me too much though.

Get the latches off ebay. The ones H-D sells require riveting. The ones off ebay use screws. I bought both when I did my TP and used the ebay parts for the screw reason.

I think I used H-D for hinges.

Are those side lights run only or do they flash for turn signals? Is there a smoked lense option?

Thanks for the pic, the air wing with led light looks good. Does it act like a brake/run light?

I have a RGU but added the detach kit and the kuryakyn adjuster from DCP for under 200 buck so I can adjust 3 inches back or 1 inch forward from stock. I like having the detach kit because I take mine off all the time. I added the large rack on top it's sure nice to strap a bag on top for sure ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1389562960.675816.jpg
