    Is the foam seal between the outer fairing and the windshield necessary. Does the seal keep moisture from sweating into the gages.

    It's not a totally sealed area but the less sealing there is the more water,dust & dirt will get in I would think, why do you want to do away with the seal??

    STEVE07; do you have a recommended place to get this foam (HD, or HW store)? Mine's got a little wear on outer edges from trying to pack the w/s bags & shields so I thought it would be good to fix. Want to get a recommended product...thanks!

    Awesome, Thanks! Looks like they have on-line shopping so I can go that route b/c it seems they're the "Auto Zone" of Canada. Appreciate it.

    Steve, since you have wired a lot of bikes for the passing lamps to stay on with high beams, have you seen any problems with too much current draw night driving??? That has always been one of my concerns doing it for a customer, since the factory see's fit not to do it.

    I believe the factory does not wire it this way as I believe in most states it is illegal to have any other lites on when main lights are on high beam.:)

    Thanks classic, I never thought of that, but makes perfect sense.
