Most excellent! That's kinda what I did. Found what I needed with Magnum Shielding, looked up the Magnum part number on Dennis Kirk, it was delivered about 3 days later.

Good luck!

Thanks! I'll update this weekend. Note to others....watch what you look up as far as Harley's guide to what you need to install certain parts. Like in my case they had no idea what I needed to complete my install even though their online guide suggested the parts I bought. Luckily I found a way to use the part I had already bought.

Well it's finally done. It's dirty and I might tweak the bars some but brakes work and it stops better. I reverse bled the brakes. I'll probably buy some beer and get out in driveway and polish her up tomorrow evening.

Good deal! Now ride that sucker.

How do your brakes feel? I've never had ABS but I heard from a recent post (within last month) that this also works for ABS. If the lever feels a little spongy, squeeze the lever, zip tie it to the grip and let it sit overnight. Next morning it'll feel as firm as it did day 1 off the showroom floor. Just check and adjust the fluid level as needed.

Brakes feel great. I'll try that anyway. I tried as hard as I could to lock brakes but would not. It stops great.
