Default Just bought a Judge..

I put my deposit down today, and I pick the bike up tuesday. I went black.

There are a few things that need to be changed, and wondered if anyone knew the answers?

- Cheese wedge - will the ones from a hammer or vegas fit? I like the ones that say 106 on them.
- exhaust - anyone make a good one yet? I like the bent slash cut pipes that you sometimes see on hammers
- hard removable saddle bags - all I've seen so far are "leather" ones
- fuel gauge - does anyone make an aftermarket one?

Other than those, the bike seems perfect for me. I'm trading in a 2011 Yamaha FZ-8. After riding the Judge, my bike feels like a toy. I'm kicking my own a$$ for not buying one sooner!

Thanks all!

Wow, congrats on your new Judge!

I'd be willing to trade a pair of 106ci cheese wedges for the ones on your Judge. They're chrome, like this one:

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Congrats on the Judge. Talk to the dealer about the gauge flash. According to the owners manuals there is an optional mode that has a fuel gauge or at least a distance to empty mode. I am having mine done soon so I don't have first hand experience but several members here do.

Crossroads, if you had the black ones, like on the hammer 8 ball, you'd be on!

No problem. I'm sure you will find someone with the black ones willing to trade.

Default Wedges

Wedges you dont need no stinkin wedges...All the wedges are the same size you can interchange between KP, Vegas, Hammer, Jackpot, etc if it has a wedge. You want anyone that has an 8ball model, doesn't matter what bike.

As for exhaust choose wisely I would imagine you could use any exhaust from a highball, vegas or KP from 09-12. the mounts look the same, but verify.
