I run one of the eBay rear LED turn signals on my 2014 Vegas. I did the best I could at the time of the installation to keep the wiring out of the way of the rear tire. I did manage to get over 1 year of riding in before I finally chewed up the rear wiring and pulled some of the wiring out of the LED bar. I ended up ordering a replacement rear wiring harness and installed one of the rear fender liners from Witchdoctors. I did have to enlarge two of the mounting holes for the liner, but that didn't take any time at all. Running the wiring harness between the fender liner and the fender is tight, but it will definitely do the job protecting my new wiring. For the price ($21.00) I think it is money well spent.

I also replaced my Ness air cleaner with a brand new set of Torque Tubes. I have to say, I was NOT disappointed with the results. As soon as I fired it up, I immediately noticed a different, better sound. Even though I haven't adjusted the settings on my PC-V, the butt dyno indicates more torque throughout the entire RPM range. I was only able to get about 30 miles of riding in after the installation before I had to call it a day.

Now I just need to find a dyno shop in the SF Bay Area that does work on Victorys.

seems like wearing through the wiring is a common occurance. I definitely want to do that rear led light too.

If your ness intake fits a 2010 Vegas low, let me know if you want to sell it...that is my next mod

The intake should fit. I will have to take a couple pictures and send them to you. Part of the corner is slightly bent, but otherwise functions fine.

Did you ever have your bike on a dyno with the old setup. I have the ness filter on my bike and would really like to have the TT intake but really question whether its worth the extra $$. I bought the Ness because I was a little tight on $$ at the time. My bike runs pretty damn good with the ness intake. I would be real interested to know what the actual gains are. I'm sure it would change the sound. I would think the TT would be a little quieter.

My bike has never been on a dyno. It is actually a little louder with the TT intake and runs better overall with the TT. My only regret is not purchasing it earlier.

ness intake is cheap TT make more power

i also have the ness intake on my 13 hammer, a lot better than stock, i could hear the suction before i opened my exhaust for more sound, + like how its hidden, but tank removal etc needed for cleaning though free done by me will be a PITA, TT's are a pain in the wallet but make more power + look easy removed for cleaning, not sure i like the filters on the TT's sticking out, unlike a pair of TT's!!!! on my bonneville i relocated my rear sigs to the fender + used gorilla tape aka- extra stickey black duct tape, its holding up well. i thoroughly cleaned the inside of the fender before applying, never ride in rain if i can help it!!!
