L2r 17' rgs

Last year when I purchased my 17' Denim Black RGS I purchased a few addons. 14 inch Harley Chizeled Apes, Cables and Passenger Boards. Well since then the bike has gone through serious changes especially since I started with back problems the beginning of this year and was taken out of work. I have to say boredom can be expensive! lol.

I have since swapped out numerous items.

The stock 4 inch windshield sucked. Went to a LRS Thresher. Loved the amount of wind it cut back, but hated the styling. Now it has the Klock Werks 14 inch flare. The buffeting is back again but it looks good and the stereo is loud enough it's not a huge issue, lol.

Added a set of tinted hand guards for those cold mornings.

Installed a set of vent screens in the front fairing and painted them.

Biketronics Amp and Line Leveler, a set of db WDX6Moto Speakers in the fairing.

I added several Custom Dynamics pieces. Front and Rear Bullet Signals, Brake light Strobe Module, Fairing lights with signals.

CD Sequential Saddlebag Lights, these things were a pain in the ass to pair up with the strobe module. I followed the directions to a T and they didn't work correctly with the strobe. I made a call to CD they came back with a completely different wiring sequence and yet still didn't work. I finally managed to get them working properly with the strobe and love them.

I got rid of the 19 inch stock front wheel and went with a 21 inch. Bike feels very stable and seems to handle much better. Sadly when I did this I had Ciro Forktini lights on it and broke one of the tabs so just removed them all together due to the broken tab and the bolts needed to be longer because of the fender relocation brackets.

I installed a set of Ciro Fang Headlight Bezels with turn signals. These are great but honestly price wise they shold be about $50 bucks less to be fair.

I swapped the stock suspension for a set of Ohlins but after riding my Ultra I was spoiled by the air ride so I sold those to a buddy and went with a set of JNR designed air suspension. Bike now drops down to about 4 inches from the ground now my old ass can get on and off with minimal effort.

Installed a set of Shorefire Designed Saddle bag covers. These are absolutely worth every penny. Plenty of padding and great craftsmen ship.

I got a set of Hog Workz Denim Black lower fairings. The instructions for these things leave something to be desired but after a little youtube searching for assembly it didn't go to bad. I got used to riding without lowers last year so it will take some getting used to again but I ride when no one else does around here in NY so they will be nice.

MY wife got so used to having the king tour pak on our Ultra she wanted one for this bike. I should have just purchased a Ultra RG, lol. Anyway even though it was a quick release I hated it so I picked up a Razor tour pak and love the style it gives.

I installed a set of Dakota Digital Gauges, I hardly ever look at them but it really seems to bring the bike to life with more options and style.

I'm really big on the Live 2 Ride stuff and wanted to break up the black and chrome on the bike. I found a derby and gas tank lid both with a black background and silver live 2 ride design. I also purchased a harley air wing cover and a timing cover and made my own custom horn cover.

I installed a chromeglow plug nz 3 stage light kit with bluetooth phone controller. I have it set up so the rear, middle and front can all be different colors.

I put a set of Bassani Headers on it from a 2016 so that both exhaust are the same size and added a set of LA Chopper Slipons with modified set of big louie tips on them.

The last of what I plan to do is add lights to the inside of the floor boards, lights to the speaker pods and possibly lights to the fairing front vents. I'm also considering adding the oil cooler fan.

Great job on the add-ons. I've been thinking about those Fang bezel lights. They look good.

I installed a set on my buddies StreetGlide. Theirs don't have turn signls integrated like ours do but they are about $50 cheaper then ours. Easy install and they bolt directly to the headlight, no two sided tape to worry about.

Gotta make it your own, it's one of my favorite things to do. Sadly, I don't have a garage so the things I do are while I crawl around outside on the patio. I'm looking forward to the doctor saying "Ride"!
