Kuryakan Hypercharger and Jets

Notes: From my research, this device doesn't add to the engines performance, but it sure does look good.  I get lots of comments.  I particularly like the ones that ask how much power did it add.  They really get bummed when I say it's mostly for looks.  :-)

H/D Screaming Eagle Performance Pipes

Note: ITEM REMOVED AND SOLD.  It sounded like crap as well.

The bike, when purchased, came with these pipes and end-caps. The owner, a Harley Engineers had removed the non-removable baffles by knocking them out.  When I took the bike for a test drive, the bike was really loud and barked aggressively.  It wasn't that deep tone that you know and love.  There was no going back since he bashed the baffle plug out. I basically hated these pipes and decided to sell them on Ebay.  I also noticed a lot of pitting on the bottom of the pipe, especially the right side.  They were only 10 months old and they shouldn't have pitted.  

On ebay, I promoted them as me being somewhat older and that I had purchased this bike and the pipes were TOO AGRESSIVE and I needed something quiter for my wife and how they were purchased by a Harley Engineer.  I was shocked how much I got on eBay for this pipes.  I knew that some young guy wanted loud pipes and blew me off as an old geezer.  I think I won out on this deal.

In summary, I would never consider these mufflers.

The owner however, did provide the stock muffler slip-ons.  See below for comments. 


Price: $350.00

H/D Billet Chrome Caps on Pipes

Came with bike. Sold with pipes.

$65.00 (Each)

H/D Stock HLHT Mufflers

When I bought the bike, the owner gave me the stock slip-ons that came with the bike.  They were unused.  Because I hated the sound of the Performance Pipes (above), I chose to use these pipes until I found a better choice. 

The stock mufflers were too quite.  To produce better tone, I drilled and knocked out the welded baffle plug.  The plug looks something like a freeze plug on a car engine.  To knock the plug out, I took the mufflers off, and started drilling holes with a long drill bit extension.  I drilled as many holes as possible on the inside.  I then took a steel pipe, stood it up, and then slide the muffler over the pipe and started pounding away like I was driving a fence post into the ground with a fence pole ramming pipe hammer.  After repeated pounding, the plug spot welds broker.   I now had a straight pipe with the outer muffler chamber in tact.   The should was much deeper and  produced a deep, pleasant sound.  

I would recommend this option for those that don't want to spend the money on new pipes or muffler slip-ons.   It's ideal for the person that enjoys the sound of the radio more than a loud pipe.  Replacement slip-ons are very cheap as well since most are being sold on ebay for around $35 - $50 as they replace their stock mufflers with new ones. 

The tone was much better, but the loudness was still not good enough. These pipes were ultimately replaced with Wild Pig Slip-on, Slash Cut pipes (see below).


Wild Pig Slip-On Mufflers -
Slashcut slip-ons with removable baffle and adjustable packing for optimum tone.

These pipes are a great value. The tone is very deep and creates the ideal rumble.   They came highly recommended by many members of the Delphi Forums Electra Glide forum

The price of $186.00 was amazing and that's the price for the pair. You can't beat that...

The mufflers are very flexible to create your own loudness by changing the removable baffle with a larger or smaller baffle.  Next, you can line the baffle with muffler packing.  The more packing and the tighter the pack, the softer the tone.  Bigger inside diameter baffle tubes (optional) created a louder tone. 

I experimented a lot with different settings.  I removed the baffle completely and it was loud.  I packed them tight and used this for about 6 months.  I finally loosened the packing and removed it from half of the baffle tune.  The result was what I feel the best blend of tone and loudness, without sacrificing the ability to hear the radio on the freeway.

Summary:   I highly recommend these pipes and get a lot of positive comments.   I've heard few pipes that create the low rumble and still have a fair price.  I can say with great pride, I have the ability to set off the alarms on many parked cars.  I do think you need to keep them waxed to  preserve the chrome, but for the price, I would defiantly buy another pair.

H/D Security System (Factory Installed Alarm)

Note: Tons of options for arming the entire system, including the ability to unarm the unit using the turn signal buttons if you loose your fab or the battery runs low. This unit disables the entire bike's electrical system. Excellent unit and well worth the money. It is very important to read the manual when storing the bike during the winter. You don't want the unit to drain your battery dead. The tutorial tape is worthless..

$285.00 Factory Option

H/D Siren / Battery Backup **

Note: What good is a security system if you can't hear someone tampering with it. Well worth the extra money.

H/D Radio/Cassette (Domestic)

This radio is a must have on a bike, and until you've ridden with one, you won't know what I'm talking about. The problem is that they aren't worth the money that they are asking and the quality should be higher for the money being paid. Luckily, my bike came with one when I bought it.

The radio offers a few nice features, such as thumb controls and a direct audio signal input for MP3 and CD Players. There are only 4 pre-sets, not good enough. The weather band is a nice feature as well. It has come in handy for long rides.

When I bought the bike, the previous owner had let the bike's battery run down - most likely from not turning off the security system. When he went to start the bike just prior to me arriving, the battery was so low that the starter started to chatter, which produced a strong surge which killed the radio. The owner gave me a $100 discount for me to look into fixing it. The dealer, to my horror, told me that I would have to replace the radio. OUCH... I later found that the dealer didn't tell me that the manufacturer of the radio (Radio Sound) would swap out the radio with a reconditioned unit for $80.00, a far cry from $750. The speakers could be better.

MXP 100 MP3 Player
(No Longer Used - Replaced by Rio Karma below)

The MXP 100 is a sleek, high-quality, extremely compact digital music player and voice recorder with the portability and durability for use in almost any environment. Because it uses memory, there is much more reliable and not prone to vibration, and thus, will not skip and I don't have to worry about a hard disk crash.

The MXP 100 is compatible with both the IBM Microdrive™ and SanDisk-compatible CompactFlash™ cards. This unit was highly recommended by a friend. He was right. It's great. I can't live without this puppy and highly recommend that everyone into MP3 files get a player.

With 256MB Complact Flash Card ($79), I get 4 hours of my favorite MP3 music.  I've been burning music at about 179kb rate so the quality is higher than the standard 128kb bit rate. It sound great and plugs directly into the factory radio CD input jack. The sound is much better than the radio in fact. Best part - no commercials.

List Price (No Memory): $79.00
Purchased Refurbished Unit on Ebay for $39.00. It's brand new, contains everything a new unit did and in perfect condition.
Web: http://www.edigital.com

I purchased a second case and velcroed it to the tank deck.  This way, I can slip the MP3 unit in and out without having to remove the case.   I also have a 12" mini-jack from the unit to the radio, which eliminates a lot of wire.

Portable Tunes for my EGlide -
Choices and Mounting

Apple iPOD Photo 30GB
This is my third MP3 Player for this bike. All have interfaced the radio through a variety of audio cables into the input jack available on most current HD radios through 2005.  Currently, I have much of my CD collection uploaded to my iPOD, but only those songs that I love.  Basically, I've got 28 days of music, sorted by playlists, song, artist, genre, album and even my own personal rating.

In my view, I have finally found the ideal MP3 solution for many Electra Glides equipped with a radio.  In the 4 years that I have owned this bike, I rarely ever listen to the radio, but rather, listen to my iPOD, control the volume and advance songs, all through the iPOD - even at night.  When I touch the iPOD, it lights up and is easy to read.

Mounting to Bike
I have chosen to mount my ipod to the gas tank deck just below the gas lid.  The reason is that there are far fewer vibrations here than anywhere on the fairing.  This is more important if a hard-disk based MP3 Player is chosen. I just think that vibration is a hard disks worst enemy. 

It's in easy reach and viewing.  I make all of my controls on the iPOD itself, such as advancing songs, playlists, even the volume. I found that it was easy to change the volume on the iPOD itself and saved the volume controls on the left hand grip.  I found that with my previous MP3 Player, I was slowly wearing out the Harley equipped controls, and thus, I switched to using the touch sensitive controls on the IPOD.

iPOD Case:
To mount the iPOD, I chose the Contour Design Showcase iPod case. It was very rugged, very flexible and offered a detachable belt clip, which I requested a second clip from the factory for the sole purpose of velcroing (industrial velcro) directly to the tank deck.  This way, I can easily attach and detach the iPOD when I leave the bike.  I have a velcro wrap around the handlebar that I use to secure the iPOD end of the audio patch cord so that isn't not just dangling. 

As for the patch cord, the near perfect solution is the Radio Shack: 1-Foot Stereo Audio Cable (1/8" Stereo Phone Plug to 1/8" Stereo Phone Plug), Part #: 42-2497  It was designed for interfacing one PC card to another, thus it's short length.  It seems to be only available in light gray.  I have considered wrapping it in black shrink wrap tubing, but it stiffens the cable too much and thus moves the strain from the cable to the connection points and thus this can weaken the connection points.  I would advise against this. 

To secure the cable when not in use and to keep it from dangling, I have a velcro wrap strap on the handlebar with a very small space whereby I can stuff the end in-between two layers of velcro, and thus it is secure.

H/D Chrome/Rubber Stripped Hand Grips

WARNING UPDATE:  JUNK PRODUCT.  The rubber on these grips is totally breaking down and have become extremely sticky to the touch.  The bottom line is that I would never buy another pair. 

Update 2:  These are shit.  I'd never buy another pair.  My hands are sticky as all shit. They were new in 2001 and worthless in 2003.

Kuryakyn Premium ISO®-Grips with ISO Throttle Boss

This grip combines the state of the art vibration absorbing properties of the standard ISO-Grip with the fatigue reducing comfort of our ISO®-Throttle Boss.  Because of their unique removable end caps, this is one of the only custom grips available that may be used with stock air reservoir type handlebars. ISO-Grips will fit all Harley-Davidson models with dual cable throttle controls.
Küryakyn #: 6212

Kuryakan Throttle Boss (Universal)

This is the one device that every bike rider should have, regardless of how much riding you do.  My hand use to always fall asleep with this bike and my last bike.  Once installed, my hand was much more relaxed and I didn't need to squeeze the grip to keep it from slipping.  Now, the palm of my hand rest on that Throttle Boss. 

It is made of pure rubber and will fit any grip. 

Highly Recommended.   Definitely a MUST HAVE item for any bike rider. 

Update:  This unit was replaced with above Kuryakyn Grips with embedded Throttle Boss and given to my brother.

Fairing Mount Mirrors

Replaces stock mirrors, reduces wind turbulence, provides a cleaner look and a better view.  Four small holes must be drilled on each side for mounting.  Mounting took less than one hours and was very easy.   Front fairing must be removed for installation.

They provide a wide range of adjustability and feature convex mirror glass that maximizes your field of view. The "Bar & Shield" logo is carefully laser-etched on each mirror glass. Kit includes necessary hardware, instructions and mounting template for easy installation.

Fits 96-later FLHT, FLHTC and FLHTCU models.

American Thunder 7" Black Windshield w/ Laser Cut Engraved Skulls

Note:  American Thunder was this small company located in Las Vegas, NV, but was either purchased or have an exclusive sales agreement with VTwinUSA.com.    The shield is excellent and a great value.  It is more of a wind deflector than a shield.  It is totally black, and thus you can not see thru it.  You're eyes are much higher than the top of the shield, but it does take some getting use to not seeing thru it, and thus, you can not see the tip of your finder.  It does a great job of blocking the wind. 

Update:  It looks like the American Thunder products are no longer available from VTwin.  The original company may have gone out of business.

$69.95 from factory via eBay (new)

H/D Oil and Air Temp Gauges **

This option filled in the two empty holes. The Oil Pressure Gauge is great, but the Air Temp gauge is totally worthless, but then again, you are required to buy the set, i.e. one good gauge and the "PIECE OF CRAP."  As you can see, I now have given the Air Temp gauge a new, more meaningful name, i.e. call this gauge "Piece of CRAP" gauge 

The numbers far too small and with the sensor being under the fairing, is great for knowing the temperatrure inside the hot fairing, but not worth a dime from the telling the rider what the temp is outside.  Worthless.   It should be a digital readout and with a sensor in a better location. 

As some point, I will replace the "PIECE OF CRAP" gauge with an Oil Temp gauge available from Wally's Cycles (http://www.wallyscycleworld.com/virtualshop/OT.asp).  Another option that I'm even more drawn to is the compass from H/D, but it's pretty pricey.

Glass Sculptured Electra Glide Console Insert

Designed and Fabricated by Iron Glass Design
Custom Glass for Motorcycles

(for Electra & Road Glides)
Hand made by Iron Glass Designs

I found this man's work on the Electra Glide Forum. His prices are great and you can't beat the quality, workmanship, beauty and service. If you really want your machine to that unique look and stand out, this man's artwork for motorcycles is just the right touch. There is nothing like it that I've seen. Frankly, I think his prices are too low. He offers all kinds of artistic glass designs for many parts of the bike. You have to check it out.

These inserts are 1/4" thick, tempered, fused glass, water jet cut for a factory fit. They are designed to replace the stock vinyl insert and will fit Electra Glides and Road Glides with console PN 61270-98. The inserts are installed on the console with silicone adhesive  that is provided. It not only stands out, but the colors are amazing when you look at it under the light of the sun. As you move, the deep colors within change ever so subtlety.

Glass Art Hardbag Latch Insert

Designed and Fabricated by Iron Glass Design
Custom Glass for Motorcycles

More glass from Iron Glass Designs.  This black honeycomb glass insert replaces the dull red plastic reflector that comes stock on the hardbag latch.  It's awsome and nothing on the market comes close to making your bike more unique. 

The fit was spectaular and came with 3M industrial tape already in place. To remove the red reflector, Ted at Iron Glass Design simply said heat up the reflector with a hot air gun and the reflector easily pops off.  A little Goo Gone gum remover removed any left over glue.  I peeled the 3M  tape and popped in the glass insert.  I was pleased so say that the glass insert fit perfectly and was flush with the face of the latch.  It looks perfect.  The image is that provided on the latch without the lock.

Kuryakan Rear Run-Turn-Brake Controller


This unit offers plug 'n play support and took minutes to install.  Unscrew seat, unplug connector provided under seat, insert this unit, replace lens caps, DONE.

The documentation was excellent.  This lighting module allows the turn signals on the Harley, which are normally not lit, to be used as running lights, brake light and turn signals - all in one module.  At the time that I purchased the unit, they did not provide support for a FLASHING BRAKE LIGHT when the brake was activated.  They have since added this features as an order item.  I would order this new kit if you are looking, and thus eliminate the need for a BackOFF Light Module below, which I had to hard wire into this system. 

This unit works by sending a 9 volt signal to the single element bulb within the stock turn signals.  When the brake or turn signal is activated, the line voltage increases to 12 volts and thus, the bulb gets much brighter.  You will need to replace the lenes to all red to make this unit legal.  I have since added LED lighting in addition and it works just fine.

Here is what they say about the unit:
A marvel of electronic wizardry, this module makes single filament or single circuit turn signals on the rear of the bike function as running lights, turn signals, and brake lights! It can be used with our L.E.D. or Halogen Silver Bullets, our incandescent Fender Strut Lights (P/N 2115), stock turn signals, or any single filament light you may already have installed on the rear of your bike. Completely plug-in for most ’96-newer Harley Davidson's® with single filament turn signals and a taillight with running and brake functions. Compatible with ’02-later H-D factory cruise control. Direct plug-in for: ’96-’04 Softails; ’97-’04 Dynas, Dressers, Road Kings; and ’99-’03 Sportsters. For installation on earlier models or '04 Sportsters see 8-Pin Hardwire, or 6-Pin to 8-Pin Adapters listed in this section. Important: 4859 is not compatible with aftermarket or accessory modules that alter the functions of the stock taillight and turn signals. If you have already made modifications to your bikes taillight and/or turn signals, you will have to return your bike to stock form before installing our Controller.

Signal Dynamics BackOFF Brake Light Module

Maximize your Brake Light Effectiveness with BackOFF. This compact solid state electronic module converts your ordinary brake light into an attention getting visual alerting device, creating more visibility and conspicuity when you are stopped or stopping. With BackOFF-MC installed, when you apply your brakes, it causes your brake light to automatically emit a visual alerting signal of 3 short light flashes, followed by 1 steady on light condition of 3.5 seconds. This signal automatically repeats itself as long as the brakes are applied. This pattern is not random, but has been selected because of its ability to gain and retain following drivers attention.

Most states drivers handbooks recommend that you flash your brakes when slowing or stopping. The BackOFF-MC automatically facilitates compliance and enhances safety. Install the BackOFF-MC and see how much more effective your brake light can be.

Note:  This unit was installed ahead of the Kuryakyn Rear Run/Turn/Brake Controller.  The pair work great together, however, Kuryakyn has added a FLASHING option to their controller, which I would highly recommend.  When the brakes are activated, the brake light and both turn signal lights flash brightly 4 flashes, followed by a longer steady light.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Easy Installation. - Simply install the BackOFF-MC module in line with your brake light wire between your brake light switch and your brake light.
Large power capacity: - 12 volts DC, Maximum Capacity 10 Amps!
Compact size. - 2-1/4"L x 1-5/8"W x 5/8"H

I also finally got around to installing an LED lighting strip on the lower rear portion of my hard bags. The look great. No exposed wires. They are very bright and I have them set up that they are running lights (at 70% brightness) and brake and turn lights (100% brightness). No way is an old lady going to not see me – at least, that’s the desire.

Each LED lighting strip will be mounted to my hard bags for better rear lighting. This should help be stay clear of the elderly here in Florida.  It should be noted that you should wire the wiring such that you can easily disconnect the wiring to remove the bags relatively easily.

Size: XL


Exigent, Inc. Bike Cover

Product replace by above cover unit.  The following product withstood 18 months of Florida direct sun, which was better than I expected.

What I liked about this unit was that it was very water proof, and very compact for travel.  Though not recommended for hot pipes, I never melted it when covering the bike just after a ride.  Very good product.

Constructed of rip-stop nylon with waterproof polyurethane and aluminized heat shields for warm (not hot) pipes.   The fit is excellent.  The picture shown is after 9 months of constant, Florida use.  At 18 months, the fabric began to rip due to prolonged exposure to the sun.

Dry Rider Two Piece Rain Suit  

Features outer layer of tough vinyl with polyester liner for comfort. Jacket features vented back, reflective stripe on back and arms, hook-n'-loop closure to prevent wind and rain entry. Trouser features elastic waist and snap closure gussets for easy on and off over boots.

This suit works very well in heavy rain, especially when the boot covers are used. The legs are a little short for me when the under boot straps are used. I'm thinking about extending the straps, which would make them perfect.


Exigent Boot Covers - Regular Height

Are made of the same waterproof Rip-Stop Nylon used in our bike covers.   Boot covers are designed with an elasticized false bottom which allows you to "Flip Up" the toe area when walking.  This prevents the cover from wearing out.  The heel area is designed to be worn just above the sole, therefore, it never touches the ground.  Fits from a size 7 woman's through a mans size 12.  If larger is needed, indicate XX boot covers in the comment section on the order page. This fits from a 13 to 16 men's.


I rode 150 miles in a rain storm and this product was well worth every penny.  They kept my boots very dry.
