tail light cracks

My bike is a 2003 A model with 67000klms on the clock. It got a small crack in it and if finally grew to about 4 cm long. I replaced it with a LED one (have to buy the whole unit - not just the lens :mad: ) last month. It worked out to be about $150 all up with postage and the conversion. I bought it from Chicago HD. They were really helpful. It works out that they are about $297 ish retail here so BARGAIN!
I have also had the top heat shield from my exhaust crack off TWICE and that was in the first 6 months. Yes, our roads are bad!

Cheers
Lucky

This one doesn. I got this one.

and I just put LED back Turn signals instead of stock bulbs. I also changed the orange to smoke domes.

Winsor Harley provided the led bulbs. And they instaled the tail light for me too. They're good and friendly mob. If you buy things on eBay they don't have any beef and will happy install for you. They actually made apes for me as u can't buy them for VRSCA.

Windsor does not have a dealer, Blacktown is the most westerly odf the Sydney dealers after that it is Capital HD at Orange.

Unless there is a independant somewhere in between

3 hours for the grips, sounds a bit rich to me, or are they internally wiring the bars? I will ask tomorrow. Hey I have proposed a Satiurday ride. 3 so far see if you can get it on Friday.
