  • Roadwing install

    I’ve had roadwing shock and harness for couple years now collecting dust. Anybody know a mechanic in WNY that would install for me without breaking bank?

    Penguin might be interested. He's in western NY.

        Pretty easy job to do yourself if it's been modified for R*. Rap is MUCH easier to install than electrical driven unit.

        If you have a lift, even easier.

            I used a Harbor freight jack and did not remove the rear wheel or fender. You just need some kind of lever under the rear wheel to wiggle it making the bolts easier to remove and insert. Nice to have a helper, but I didn't, and it was not at all difficult.

            I remember seeing pictures of installing pump under right side cover. Did they survive the update?

                I installed my roadwing in my 07 just a few months ago, it really is not that hard and I even modified it myself, which was probably the hardest for me. I used a motorcycle floor lift and did not remove rear wheel. When I installed the pump under the cover I had to bend a metal tab for some relays out of the way. I ran my wires to control the pump from the battery to left side cover and hid the rocker switch behind the cover.

                    Nope!
                    what the video again and follow it.
                    It is easy to do.
