Stella: Seductive Elegance

Here is my build thread. It will be slow from time to time, but I am a picture whore. I hope you all enjoy.

October 12, 2012 Stella came home.


We were inseparable from day one!




Some pictures of both my bikes together.




Just before the 1,000 mile service on the 11th day of ownership, I got under the clothing for a peek!


As of 10-25-2012: 1200 miles. Mods include Screamin Eagle Ventilator A/C.

Nice looking bike, good luck with the build and can't wait to see what you got going on in your shark tank (garage).

October 26th 2012, the mods begin!

Quick Detach Tour pack and Wind Splitter screen.



Pulling things apart. The instructions provided with the kit are straight forward and easy to follow. Tour pack wiring is disconnected here.


Tour Pack removed




Subframe covers removed


Stock tour pack framing removed

You can really get a good visual of the attitude of the bike from here.


New plate holder, sub-frame covers and Pack docks installed


And everything back together.



I took my time and it took a good chunk of the day. After getting the docks and new frame on, the TP went on and off a few times so I could get the wiring squared away. I don't know what Harley is thinking but they provided like two different connectors, but the second seemed like it was only half there. I ended up cutting the plug from the main harness and splicing the provided Duetsch plug on. Hardest part was manning up to cut the wires! From there I stuffed the extra wiring under the seat and a side cover. Managed to get the antenna wires tucked away nicely. Will most likely have to fine tune some things.

And what kind of install would it be without a test run!


That concludes the mods for now. I couldn't be happier with the results! Now the question is, Do I start blacking it out or keep the Chrome? Pictures I have seen of the Ember Red with blacked out components look great, but the chrome is growing on me.
