Installed a tank bib as well. The absence of a soft felt underside was not right! For $80+ retail an OEM item such as this should have a means to minimize (via soft synthetic) paint scratch from mere suede leather and stiff sewn mendings. Sorry, sorry, sorry! I promise I'm only a discriminating American.
I love my redhead she thrills me; but, I adore my wife, she blows me away.
I've read (I think) all the threads concerning fog lights on this site, little things like the fact that the plug is under the tank. It was more encouragement than tips (thanks Sidecar) that made me decide to try it. Do be carefull of your handle bar height or you'll wind up with a small dent in your tank like I now have from the on and off switch when you turn your handle bars to the lock position. Did not realize that I would have to strip the bike down to the frame (not quite that bad) to put the lights on, but at $65 an hour (dealership price) I saved $130. Maybe that will be enough to get the small ding out of my tank2.5 hours??? What was the holdup? Ice cooler went empty requiring a 60 mile trip to the corner quick stop? I've the same install waiting me. Where were those tips you mentioned?
Actually I do have the classic, in fact the bars or so low that the cable on the left side is rubbing the paint when in the locked position. That's how I got it from the dealer, I need to raise the bars.SnuffCity - I'm guessing you don't have a Classic. The handle bars are a tad different on the Classic and no interference was realized between the switch housing and the tank. There is plenty of clearance with Classic/Tourer bars.
The night visibility is tremendously improved with the shallow and wide beam of the fog lights. No deer will escape my cyclops vision now. Those chrome deer whistles packaged in pairs, look to be a tad bit bigger than 338 magnums*, aren't worth depending on Drove by a doe 10 days ago, less than 10 feet away at o'dark 30. She was looking off into the woods totally unaware I was right next to her. She no doubt took a dump when the exhaust sound caught up to her. *Could be as big around as a 50 cal. I don't have one to compare.
