New Shaping for Airbox Cover

Hey guys,

OK. So I've now buily up the Airbox Cover to mimic the NoLomits Airbox Cover more. It's higher than AlwaysLooking's one and will have a higher profile. Here's some pics. Also have the Burlaigh Bars Drag Bars fitted. If anyone wants a bloody good quality set of bars than Burlaigh Bars in Australia will do custom jobs like mine. They'rer NOT cheap but the quality is A1.

Work Finished

OK. Totally finished the build now. Will have pics up tomorrow hopefully. Anyone in Oz (especially in Sydney) that is thinking of doing Arnotts Air Shocks or relocating their instrument cluster, feel free to post any questions as I have relocated all the switches for the Air Shocks and the one switch for the instrument panel down by the main Harley Key Lock. Works a treat and not as hard as you'd think.
In the end I had to fabricate a drainage cover to go under the Airbox Cover as I am running topless and didn't want to risk water getting into the Airbox. LOL THAT would be a bitch!

Stay tuned for more pics. I am putting a couple up showing the Arnotts and the switches now but will have to wait til daylight to take some pics of the bike. Already getting comments on the street. Looks awesome.

Looking good........ I don't know if you've thought about where your going to place your function switch for the speedo. The 2012 bikes have a emergency flasher switch in conjunction with the starter button. As it's a momentary switch you could replace your starter button switch with the newer one and use the flasher button part for the function switch.
Just a thought......Keep up the good work........

Hi mate,
A few questions for you.

Those bars look awesome - where did they come from?

Fender eliminator - any issues with the local coppers and same for the exhaust?

lastly - the side mounted number plate - is that ok in your state?.

Love the look of the bike - wish I had the $ and time to do all of that.

can you give us a picture from the front - Im interested in seeing how those bars fit.
