RGU Mods Red & Black Combo

I think this forum needs is a warning notice, like WARNING: VIEWING THIS SITE CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT!

After being laid up with a broken ankle and collarbone from totaling my 09 Blacked out SG on Memorial Day, I have done a lot of looking at all the cool bikes on the site and getting all kinds of good info as I'm laid up and have nothing better to do except think of things to put on the new bike, gee thanks guys! I purchased a 2013 RGU Ember Red Sunglo back in July and here's the mod list I came up with since joining this forum. I'm hoping this will be completed and I'm back riding in Sept. I'm new to the RG and have never even ridden one yet! I REALLY REALLY hope I like it! I loved my SG and have been secretly admiring the RG's from afar for some time now. Now that my SG is in Harley Heaven I feel I can go forth with my secret obsession for the sharknose!

I know I definitely want the tour pak detachable for the RGC look as that will be the "regular" look for it and the tour pak is for the trips.

Here is my list of mods and some "before" pics. Hopefully there will be some after pics soon! Thanks to everyone for all the good advice and the great pics on this site! Great site!

The Mod List:

SE Pro CNC Ported Heads
SE Hi Ratio Rocker Arms 1.725:1
SE Tapered Adj Pushrods
SE 255 Cam
SE Ventilator Air Cleaner
SE Pro Super Tuner
Vance & Hines Dresser Duals
Rinehart 3.5 Slip On Mufflers

PC Black Primary
PC Black Transmission Top Cover
PC Black Transmission Side Cover
PC Black Rocker Box Cover
PC Black Cam Cover
PC Black Horn Cover
PC Black Front Turn Signals
PC Black Rear Turn Signals
PC Black Engine Guard

Agitator Wheels 18" Chrome and Black
Agitator Floating Rotors Polished Chrome and Gloss Black inner
Gloss Black Front End Kit
Arlen Ness Modular 10" Mini Apes Black
ISO Grips wBoss
Painted Inner Fairing Ember Red Sunglo
Titanium Face Gauges
Daymaker Headlamps
12" Wind Splitter Windshield (may change to a Freedom Shield or Windvest later)
Windshield Trim Gloss Black
Tour-Pak Detach Kit
Quick Disconnect Harness
Slipstream Pedals and floorboards
Billett Shift Levers
HD Premium Ride Adjustable Shocks

Ordered Iron Aces GPS Mount for Zumo 660. Like how it mounts and looks on the RG!

And so it begins...

Finally after waiting for all my parts to get in (mainly my painted inner fairing from HD), the build has started. Stopped by to see the progress and was astonished! If not for the tour pack still being attached, I wouldn't have recognized my bike!






The new CNC SE Heads



The pile of stuff for the bike!
