TABLE IV: LOCATION OF REQUIRED EQUIPMENT
down at the bottom of this page: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/roadsafety/s...m#_Figure%2032

You would only have an issue if the police pulled out a tape measure and if you removed the stock licence plate holder and didn't put three reflectors back.

Turn signal lamps:
"At or near the front - 1 amber on each side of the vertical centerline at the same height, and having a minimum horizontal separation distance (centerline of lamps) of 400 mm (16 inches). Minimum edge to edge separation distance between lamp and headlamp is 100 mm (4 inches).

At or near the rear - 1 red or amber on each side of the vertical centerline, at the same height and having a minimum horizontal separation distance (centerline to centerline of lamps) of 230 mm (9 inches). Minimum edge to edge separation distance between lamp and tail or stop lamp is 100 mm (4 inches), when a single stop and tail lamp is installed on the vertical centerline and the turn signal lamps are red."

Reflex reflectors:
"On the rear - 1 red on the vertical centerline except that, if two are used on the rear, they shall be symmetrically disposed about the vertical centerline.
On each side - 1 red as far to the rear as practicable, and 1 amber as far to the front as practicable."

Interesting.
They seem to always have something in some document somewhere that takes the fun out of everything.
I'm not near my bike right now, and I never measured, but to me is seems that the rear reflectors on our vegas are lower than 15" and it states that they can't be lower than that.

Default Newest mod complete.

I just completed the S&S intake installation and test ride. As many have mentioned before, getting the stock air box out is a PITA and involves a lot of cutting. But I'm happy with how things went. I've also installed a Power Commander III with the 2007 Hammer map from this site: http://www.mediafire.com/?1p369ilpy124z because my Vegas also already had a stage one download and exhaust. So far everything functions well and sounds fine. The bike seems to run a bit smoother now especially when I release the throttle, the engine doesn't slow the bike down as severely anymore. Eventually I would like to get the bike Dyno'd but not right now.

As usual I found the directions for both installations to be flawed. The S&S instructions should pretty much be followed in reverse order unless you intend on removing your bikes engine from its frame. And the recommended placement for the PCIII is ridiculous because there was already another module in that location. Two solid objects cannot occupy the same space (physics). So I stuck mine directly under the seat instead.

I think I'll add some braided stainless steel cables next...

Default Dyno Tuned

I just brought my bike back from the Dyno Tuner at Harley. For $900 here is what I got: just over 100 hp and 106 torque. The guy who did the work said that he was impressed with how consistent the bikes power was right across the chart. I'm just happy to have the bike running a little smoother and sounding a little deeper.

Since there is a link to this thread in my signature I'm keeping it going. Two weeks ago I did some more work on the bike. Here it is now with Victory Comfort Grips (Kuryakyn ISO Grips, same thing apparently), Arlen Ness Rad III Mirrors, Crossroad's HID kit and a stainless steel braided cable set. I've got some MBW LED turn signals on their way from Victoryonly.com which I will be installing next. When I do I plan to build a custom licence plate mount for the rear fender rather than buying a side mount. When I'm done I'll post more pictures.

I think I'm done now. This weekend I installed a set of MBW LED turn signals. Although I am having some issues with the Load Equalizer everything else turned out extremely well.







In order to keep my license plate where it was I had to cut the plastic mount off and then DIY some aluminum brackets.

Lightbulb S&S Air box

I love the muscley look of the S&S Air Box! I love mine! But as far as the Mapping, why did you choose to go with an 08 hammer map and what brand VFC did you get? LLOYDZ or PowerCommander? Because my Lloydz VFCIII is tuneable while riding, so you can custom ize your fuel system, but i just cant seem to get it where im happy with the mapping in ALL 5 gears, its always perfect in 1, 2, and 3 but a little lazy in 4, and 5 or visa versa

Any ideas? Input?

I've got the PCIII and my bike has been properly dyno tuned now. At first I tried out a few freebie maps off of the internet but then I decided to just get it done right. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with the other fuel controllers so I can't answer your question. Perhaps someone else with the Lloydz one will be able to help you out.

On a side note, I removed my passenger seat and footpegs last weekend. I've been riding since 2006 and I've never carried a passenger. I would have taken them off sooner but the mounting brackets for my saddle bags partially bolted to the footpeg mounts. So what I did was bend some more 1"x1/8" aluminum to make some new brackets for the saddlebag brackets to bolt to... sound confusing? Look at the picture.
