  • Looking for suggestions

    I am new to the bike world so I don't know much about where to look for mods. I have a long list of things I want to change on the bike but I have a hard time finding anything other than HD parts. I just ordered new LED headlight and passing lights but I need a bar and cans for the passing lights. Also looking to switch from the stock windshield to a fairing, where should I look? Ebay has a ton of options but I don't trust buying from there since I don't know what to look for.

        Some had good results others bad, hit and miss with those.

      You are doing the right thing right now. Just ask on here before you commit to something, people here will tell you what's good and what's junk.

        If you're looking for one with a stereo, Reckless and Tsukayu both make good fiberglass batwings. If you don't need tunes, Memphis Shades makes a nice removable batwing for a little less money. They're ABS but very good quality. It's what I have and I've been very happy with mine, though I do wish I'd gone with the stereo. I do have aftermarket bluetooth speakers, but they sound quality just isn't as nice as a full on stereo system. .

          I have a USA trailer fairing and I'd call it decent. For what it cost it's a heck of a deal but definitely not top notch.

            I really like some of those fairing options especially reckless. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. What about passing lights bar and cans? I already bought the LEDs as a set with the headlight.

              Nothing we'd like better than to spend money on a Road Star... especially OPM!!!

                With the Reckless fairing, you have the option of getting their stereo or getting the fairing pre-cut for your own setup. I didn't/don't want the audio (among other things, it adds too much weight , for MY liking, to the fairing, which may add to the failure of the OEM windshield mount, which is needed to mount many batwing fairings. I use the cutout in the fairing to stow various things like gloves, microfiber towels, glasses(in cases), etc. I always have the option of installing audio equipment if I wish.
