Wicked nice ride, I like it. When doing this will the factory warranty become void?

Yes the pipes are loud, but not crazy loud. They mellow out at cruising speed and, as with most aftermarket pipes, get noisy when you get on the throttle. No complaints from the neighbors yet.

To my knowledge nothing I have done would void a warranty on the engine. Performance cams or the big bore kits will void the engine warranty. Those will eventually be done to mine, but not any time soon. Need to finish the front with Kewl Metal fork tubes first.

I bought the 5 year extended warranty when I purchased. Even if I go with big bore and cams I have 5 year coverage on everything else on the bike except the engine. Not that I am worried about anything breaking.

Looks great!
Windshield bag? I placed a windshield bag in the same location on the Harley 48, looks ok but yours is a much better choice. A handy place for insurance card and small stuff.

River Road is the manufacturer. Very good quality and got decent room. It is a tool bag by the label. It came with velcro straps that were run horizontal by design and just didn't work for a swing arm mount. I used a utility knife to cut slots in the hard plastic strap holders on the back and ran zip ties through horizontal so it would mount properly. Not an easy-on-easy-off application by any means but I sure trust the zip ties to keep it in place a lot more than velcro.

KEWLMWTAL. They have a high-ball section. Went with Zenolen Infernal Led Turn signals. Ordered another set for the rear after testing the fit on the front. Got some Kuryakyn mirrors on the way that have the same skeleton arm and hand design as the led's to match.

Trying to decide if I want to go with flat black KEWLMWTAL upper and lower fork tubes or the contrast cut. Decisions...
