Default nightrider x14iED install

Is there a "how to" thread describing x14iED in-line enrichment device install for 07-08 Sportster?

Not much of a "how-to" but they don't sound too difficult:

I've had mine about a month and scratched both ends thinking that they replaced a link of wiring, couldn't come up with what to replace except that one end had to be under the sheath covering, didn't want to cut into that, well finally today after looking again it hit me right between the eyes which must be awful close togather, they don't replace anything they add in, proof again that I am a dummy......
Seems like anymore I have to try to do something wrong 3 times before I do it right once......
Well maybe I shouldn't talk too soon, I did fold the excess wire back across the middle both ways and tape them down, didn't bend the little thingy in the middle though, shortened them up to about 3-4" long and much easier to work with and bundle out of the way... It runs, so hope I didn't screw them up... I was thinking that I may should have gotten the ones that were 14.2 AFR instead of the 14.0 X14s as my bike don't seem to be much off on the AFR, getting a tad of color on the plugs as is, so we'll see...
Have a good one...Tater...

Thanks, Tater,
Like you, I was thinking to replace something. See, your not alone. Of course the instructions that come with it don't even mension Sportster, other than it works on one. I think you helped more than just me, Tater. Thanks again

My first ride with the x14iEDs installed turned out to be very good... It turned out to be a very good day yesterday so I took a ride down thru the off main black tops roads to Lynchburg, and even wound up doing a circle and about 100 mi. total ...
Ok my first impressions are good, the bike seemed to run smoother and I did get a good kick in the tail when I would just crank her on like in the mid 60s & 5th gear, felt like a big ole V8 Olds hitting passing gear and the 4 Bbl kicking in...lol...
No noticeable difference in idle speed, but seemed to be a bit smoother at idle, and the lower speeds...
I filled up with gas at the end and it figured to be 46-47 mpg. which is near what it was before for that type ride...
So, I think, I am pleased...So far...lol...
PS--Hey, the fall colors are starting to jump out, and I didn't even take my camera...
PS 2--Did a very windy 200+ mi. ride yesterday and stick with the above but did get a tad better mpg figure 48-49 mpg. ...
Have a good one...Tater...

Alright, I got my X14iED's (the pair) in the mail yesterday, and put them in today.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
(after about 10 miles, starting on back country roads at 40mph, then I got on the highway and it [my 1200 Nitester] felt so smooth, and powerful!
Money well spent were my thoughts, after riding about 25 miles total.
I also had a smile on my face from ear to ear!!..lol..!!

So, install of these products is very straightforward.

You simply unplug the wire that goes to each of your o2 sensors and plug the IED product in between the sensor and the rest of the wiring harness using the existing connectors.

Then tuck/hide the wires in a way you're comfortable such that they won't come loose, get caught in a moving part, or melt by touching something hot (exhaust).
