    These have been talked about here lately and from the pics i liked the looks so i got one they are not expensive and put it on today after work ..

    The kit i got will also work if you have the crossover fuel lines on the older HD's Mine doesnt so i got to skip fooling with that..

    Stock Look

    Remove Covers over tank bolt and then Bolt from both sides

    Next lift tank .. Mine was almost empty probably a Gallon left and dang it still is super heavy

    Install lift bracket .. if i decide to stay with the lift i will cut the excess later

    Remember to locktite bolts

    [​IMG] here is the right side after its done

    still clears tank and dash with bars

    Now this one im not sure on all ready felt little werid course i had work pants on not riding gear.. but i will give it a shot before i decide if i dont like it i will remove

    Supposed to not effect tank capacity but supposed to show empty little sooner. course i dont trust the gauge anyways but just a warning

    well i had to know how it felt riding so though it is raining i went out took a trip around the block and pulled in the garage took it off.. can you say uncomfortable.. on a 5 gallon tank i think it would work fine

    I did like the look but not feel so for me this one is a bust
