The fronts, just pull them off.

For the bag latches do an eBay search for black Harley latch reflectors. Just make sure they are for the new style bags.

Most if us are buying them off eBay for around $8 for saddle bags. I was looking for a link to one's I bought but can't find seller.

As far as the forks go I haven't been able to find them either.

I bought the Klock Werks chrome saddlebag inserts that say "Special." To remove the reflectors, I used a heat gun and gradually pried the old ones off. . Then you pic out the excess glue that will be stuck in there. Klock Werks used to have a video on their website. I left my front ones on but I have heard people use fishing line to get them off.

Fishing line and hair dryer worked for me. Then more elbow grease to get the rest of the glue off. Wd40 helps.

As far as replacement ones, not sure. Like others said, eBay. Amazon.

Looks to me like the fork reflectors are the same size and shape of the bag deflectors, so you could use the ebay smoke colored bag reflectors on the forks if you want to replace front and rear.

Not even close. Plus the ones on the forks are curved on the back so the sit on the forks right.



Come to think of it I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bike in person that someone actually owned that had the front reflectors still.

I suppose if you really wanted to keep the front reflectors in smoke color you could take off the orange ones and fog them in flat back paint and clear and put them back on. Or use something similar that would tint them. But indeed most posts are about how to remove them. IF you masked them off well you might even be able to do it on the bike. Just thinking out loud.

Does that mean I can take someone's Amber fork ones and put them on my Amber Whiskey bags?

Tangentially, does any one make an LED light that replaces the bag reflectors? Thanks.

Here’s a pic of the bag hinges that’ve been plasti-dipped. This is just the regular black plastidip, not the smoke.

That doesn't look bad at all. Matter of fact not even sure the smoked "reflectors" I put on my bags will actually even reflect. I hit them with a flashlight but they didn't seem to do anything.

That would be cool, but I don't think it would be practical. You'd have to drill and run wire. Not saying that it couldn't be done.
