Default 2018 Black Tempest Fat Boy S

Well as you can see, I've removed some items to begin the installations of new bars and a few other available parts, and there isn't much right now. But with these simple modifications it should add to the pleasure of the ride of this new bike..


Stock



Left Electrical box..



Right side cover removed (abs module)



Rear suspension




Beginning stage

Nope, mocking up the handlebars, making sure clutch cable and front brake line I purchased ahead of time fits, looks like everything is ok. After doing a little cross referencing, I learned that the stock riser bushings are the same ones used in the touring bikes, there for the poly riser kit for the touring bikes, part number 56298-03a should work just fine.



Stock triple tree



Forward electrical caddy cover/plug



Electrical caddy folding block, handlebar, turn signal, tbw connections..

Did you get the cables and extensions from harley? Seems like everybody else is dragging their feet producing a kit for them. I can't wait to put 20s on my heritage.

Everything is Harley, wire extensions, tbw extension, upper brake line and the new upper clutch cable. Harley makes it real easy. Also, after doing alittle cross refrencing, the new Softails use the same riser bushings as the touring line, so I used that kit and it worked great, see post below
