why don't yopu want the kuryakyn one?
there was an earlier thread here somewhere that lent me to beleive that it was more versatile.

I'm a little confused as to exectly what you got but if the module doesn't plug in and the lenses are wrong; sounds like you need the correct kit.
Good Luck

KURYAKYN.

Plug and Play. No splicing, 5 minute install, makes the turn signals running/brake/turn signals.....much
better than the H-D unit.

I would not pay any !@#$% restocking fee because of their error. Absolutely not. Never. No.

The part number you want is 91698-99. It is an obsolete part however my dealer ( Topeka HD) found the number for me and then checked on his official HD computer and located 6 of them at dealers within 1 state away. He ordered it for me and I had it in 2 days. I also agree that the HD part is superior to the Kuryaken one in this case. One it is cheaper and two it includes the lenses for the turn signals making it cheaper still.

I just bought the HD one for my bike. Havent put it on yet so not sure if its the right one. Since the parts guy at the Dealer is a friend of mine I am sure I got the right one. If not he is getting an a$$ beating.

One of the first upgrades I made to Heywood wuz buying the H-D brake lite module. Installed it directly under the ICM. Be careful not to tighten the nuts too tight. Took 10 minutes. Who cares who makes the nicest unit. The important part is that you have more than one brake light. Also the unit I bought for my '05 C wuz on sale for 20% off. I know the Kuryakyn brand converts the turn signals to running lights also, but I would've had to order it. And one in the hand is better than two in the bush and all that rot. It's kinda weird now that parts for the newer models are becoming more available than parts for the older models. Guess that's progress.....Year ago it wuz the other way around.
