What did you do for your sporty Today?

I removed the wiring harness from the 2010 fender and cleaned the inside of the fender with Goo Gone and then Gasoline. Washed and dried it, then put the wiring harness from a 2016 Superlow T in its place. Then I installed the fender on my 2016 Roadster. That took most of Friday.

On Saturday, I also relocated the turn signals and installed a tail light. That involved changing both the terminals and plastic connector housings. That may not sound like much, but it was a daunting project for me. To get it all done took the better part of two days with a lot of running around town. I lucked out when I found a shop that had both the removal tool and the right crimper for the wire ends and a knowledgeable mechanic who took the time to help me out. (The Bike Shop on Pedretti Ave.) I don't usually do well with electrical issues, especially when I don't have the right tools. However, with help, and using thought and care, I did everything right. and it's getting closer to the Ideal Sportster for me.

Next up is putting the Hepco & Becker hard bags on the 16.
