This is one of my favourite pieces as I hated the plastic look. I have spent lots of money swapping out all the black with Chrome so this piece was a have to have piece. The only issue I have is the lens covers are red and In Australia we are supposed to have orange as indicators or side clearance lights. Touch wood the Police will see that I am trying to make my bike more visible. Excellent product.
The flat black on our 2013 saddlebags annoyed me but I hesitated on getting this particular trim piece since I already had a battery cover that I liked better than the battery cover intended (rubber insert to guard against shoe scuffs) for this saddlebag trim. After seeing it on the bike, I could not be happier. It also added some safety lighting (looks like an infinity light) from a side view as well as another turn signal.
The install went very well except for getting the hinges to line up to re-attached the saddlebags. My wife saved the day by coming up with a little cheat by having me screw one screw in without the reinforcement bracket in place to pull the hinge in close enough to get the other screw to thread in with the reinforcement bracket in place. After the second screw grabbed, then we took out the first screw and rotated the bracket into place then put the second screw back in. Other than that, follow the instructions and look at the pictures and you should not have a problem installing. I am very happy with the look of the bike now as you can see a before and after picture in my gallery.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
