We just got back from a 2000 mile ride. Nearly 300 miles of that was in rain. In heavy rain with winds the bottom of the bag soaked through. The rain cover doesn't do much good in heavy rain. but in light rain it seemed to do the job. The size of the bag is perfect and it sticks to the rack like it's glued on. I am looking into using a water proofing spray on the bag to insure a little better protection from the elements. All in all, I am still very pleased with the bag.

I installed the saddlebag lights in about an hour. All went well until I powered up. One side didn't light up. Found that the press on connector wasn't cutting through the insulation to make contact. The wire insulation on my 08 is quite hard and it took quite a bit of pressure to finally cut and make contact. Connectors could be better. The light look great and add extra visibility. Wish i would have added the when I bought the bike instead of waiting two years.

The trunk light package went on without a hitch. Instructions are OK but the Kuryakyn video helped as well. They lights look great and add night time visibility. I wish I would have bought them 2 years ago when I purchased our Wing. Installation took about 45 minutes for the trunk lights.

The reflector conversion installation is very easy. It took about 45 minutes. The most time consuming part of it was fishing the wires through the cowling. The one negative comment that I have is that the amber doesn't quite match the turn signals on the mirrors. Albeit, they look great and I know that they will add safety for dusk and dark rides.

This is an update to my earlier review. The front two bumpers are now leaned towards the back of the bike and there is no doubt that they will eventually break off. I like the idea of leaving just the rear bumpers. They are the ones closest to the tail lights and I think that they may do the job without the forward bumpers. We'll see how it goes. Regardless of all of that, I still like the isolation that they provide for the trunk lid and I sure don't miss the rattle.

After holding on to these for several months I finally decided to install them. The instructions were very good and the templates were right on. I hate drilling on my bike but drilled an 1/8" pilot hole prior to drilling the 1/4" hole and things worked well. It took a bit more pull than I expected to seat the bumpers but I was working in 63 degree weather so I imagine that they were pretty stiff. I went for a ride after installation and the rattle when crossing tracks etc. is gone. I do have a concern for how hard the trunk lid closes now. Hopefully the bumpers will take a set when compressed for a long period.

Just installed. The installation was easy but I had to file quite a bit of flash from the underside of the kickstand. Instructions say to slide on but in the end I used a small dead-blow hammer to seat it. I can't believe that it could come off with or without the set screw. It's a little larger than I had anticipated but I have no doubt that it will perform as advertised.

I finally worked up enough courage to put these on. After reading the reviews and warnings of one chance I was pretty paranoid. I trial fit these things a dozen times and I follwed the instructions to a tee. The fit was almost perfect. A little open on the bottom edge from the adhesive strip but I can live with that. If you take your time, these are very easy to install. Better yet they look great. I highly recomend them.

These are not an exact fit. I did several trial fits before actually mounting. I don't like the fit but these look great, they went on easy and I am glad that I purchased them. The tape seems to have really good hold to it so it's hard to imagine them coming off. We'll have to see how it goes. (4 stars only because of inexact fit up)

Easy to install however I think that the screws need to be a little longer. They really dress up the side of the fender.

Well made and good quality. Probably holds more than you should put on your rack. I've used it on one long trip and I ran in some really bad side winds. It stuck to the rack like it was glued to it.

One of the best tools that I have ever purchased. It is a must have if you change your own oil.
