I thought the same thing. When I initially hooked up the FP3 and did the firmware update, it recognized my skoot as a 2019 and locked in the VIN. I think thatís the problem. It sees a 2019 but doesnít see a map for the 2019 even though the Ď18 is the same. If it would allow me to choose a 2018 map I would've done it. Thatís said, it doesnít show any exhausts, intakes or any other upgrades in the drop down menus. Theyíre all blank. And when you try to select anything it directs you to customer service.

Congrats on the bike. I havenít had any issue with buffeting either. In fact itís many times better than my old RK, even when I had a Long Ride recurve on it. These Heritages work well out of the box if youíre the right height. Got a lot of smiles ahead of you.

Congrats and welcome to the '18 Heritage Club...looks very familiar

Yeah, lots of tinkering to be done...you can see the things I have done to mine. For the 107 I would highly suggest considering early on a Stage I SE Ventilator upgrade and a Tune with the SE Streeet tuner. Makes a significant difference in Idle RPM and much better throttle responce when taking off from a standing stop. Mine always sounded like it was going to stall when ideling and there was a definate hesitation in the throtle responce when starting out in 1st.

Enjoy and ride safe

Default Tab Performance

Added Tab Performance, Zombie baffles, with the black end cap. Love the sound! This bike roars. The slip ons give it a nice idle and I can cruise into the neighborhood without upsetting the neighbors. However, she opens up when I get on it and quiets down to a nice deep tone for the longer cruise. I would highly recommend.

The rain continues, so no additional riding this weekend. Priority one for me is to clean up the rear end. I don't ride two up, so a solo seat and other goodies are ordered. I am going to defer mufflers & street tuner until I find a sound I like, Stage 1 is about $1300, which is more than I want to spend for sound. So far I can live with the idle, I am aware of the warranty implications for non-compliant mufflers and/or tuners, so I will stick with the stock setup for now.

Has anyone removed the reflectors from the saddle bags, and if so what did you fill the holes with?

I only did the Stage I upgrade to the Oval SE Ventilator and bought the H-D Street tuner, approximatly $600. H-D Items so no warenty concerns.

My dealer has no concerns about the Rinhart Slip-ons I put on. However, I do have the stock units in my storage unit for the situation wher I would have to take it in for a major engine warenty work. Quick swap.

I really like what you have done to your bike, based on the picture and previous posts. Your mods have made it fit you as well as making it unique. In a parking lot with several 2-18 Twisted Cherry FLFCs, yours would definitely stand out.

I believe they are only on with a strong dbl stick tape or adhesive and can be removed darefully without any damage. Others have mentioned doing so. Goo-gone will remove any sticky residue.

I chose not to remove, but wanting to tone down the bright colors that stood out like a sore thumb, I sprayed them with smoke tint intended for plastic auto lamp lenses. They still reflect, but are now very unnoticable.

Since... the rear bags have been replaced...no reflectors. Smoke tinted fork reflectors still there.
