In the Rear: I'm looking at putting these on since my rear fender is getting re-desigened to french the plate in. http://www.mbwmotorcycle.com/products/Vegas.html

I see MBW only sells currently for the Hammer and the Vegas and that VictoryOnly sells a mounting bracket for conversion to the Kingpin, but doesn't specify which one to order from MBW? I'm guessing the Vegas is closest in curvature, but wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations?

In the Front: I'm looking at wrap around turn signals on the front forks, any one have success with either the MBW or the Custom Dynamics Truwrapz (horrible name, but I won't hold it against them quite yet)?

Lastly (if you're still reading this long message), anyone know a good pinstriper in the Twin Cities? I'm going flat black with the repaint and want red and white pinstriping for classic murdered out look (sans white wheels, I'd never keep those clean...).

As always, thanks for your feedback!

The MBW fork signals look great and are easy to install but aren't as visible as stock. I've also got an HID headlight and people tell me that they can't see my front signals when I use them.

I am in the process of doing the same thing. I ordered the vegas one and it fits nice. I haven't finalized the install yet. I just received all the parts today. Will be installing it this weekend.

How did the fit go johngam? I'd love to see some quick pics and any tips you have. I will definitely post photos when I'm finished with all the tweaks on my bike.

Thanks for the feedback on the front wrap arounds. Up here people don't seem to notice my stock turn signals, so I'm not expecting a "decrease" in visibility....unless I have a giant flashing neon light above the bike, I always drive pretty defensively.

Neighbor was stuck on ice in the alley this morning and snow storm rolling through here in MN today, so can only dream of bike season for now.... :(

What part of the cities are you in? I live in the NW Metro. We had a guy stripe my wife's bike a few years back. It was actually his first one ever (though had been doing cars forever). If you want to check out his work, you're welcome to swing by some time and I'll be happy to get you his contact info. Shoot me a message on here if you'd like.

I'd love the info! I live in St. Paul, but the bike is getting the work done out in the sticks northwest OF the Metro. The snow today makes me all the more anxious for riding season, after this last week, I thought maybe we'd have an early start. I guess not :mad:

Next time you're heading out that way, give me some heads up. We live just off 169 & 694. You're welcome to stop in and checking out his work. I shot a message to him. I'm assuming he's still doing it. He lived in St Paul when he did her's so I'm guessing he still does.

I just received notice that mine is still at paint. He's checking up on the paint guy tomorrow, so hopefully by this weekend or sometime early next week it'll be done.

The MBW directions were wrong about one of the wire colours for the load equalizer on my older bike (they should be correct for newer models like yours) and I had to break some plastic clips when I removed my rear fender. I later replaced those clips with some stainless steel nuts and bolts. I also almost pulled on my front break cable a little too much when I lowered the front forks to slip the wrap around signals on. So be sure to give yourself some extra slack when you do that. Other than that the installations were relatively easy. Just follow the directions that come with the product and you should be fine.
