Well it's been a month since I put the bikes up. They got a good bath, wax, and oil change.

I have some mods planned for both the bikes.

Nightster Edition here (http://www.2wheelmichigan.com/forums/showthread.php?1926-So-it-starts-Mod-Season-Nightster-Edition)

On the docket for the Ultra

Saddlebag latch inserts

Maintenance items: (both really easy)
Front brake pad replacement (2 bolts & 1 pin per caliper)
Front fork oil replacement (drain plug R&R, remove dash piece to fill)

Gloss black powder:
saddlebag surrounds
horn cover
tank dash
air cleaner cover
starter cover
rear fender struts
license plate brackets

Flat black high temp powder (the powder will be more durable than ceramic, flat cause gloss will loose its shine over time & miles):
heat shields
mufflers

ceramic (gray-color doesn't matter) the exhaust pipes for an added heat barrier

This has always been the only read cosmetic mods I ever thought of for the last 2 years of ownership. Always said I might do this one day...

So I started into the bike...

All of this chrome needs to go (saddle bag surrounds, rear fender struts, plate bracket, mufflers)

Cool , I am envious of the bikes and the space , I need a building / space in the worst way . When I had my business I had all kinds of storage space , but I sold out the last of it in 2004 . (just in time) I've been looking for an industrial building to buy with about 2000 sq ft , but no luck as yet .

But all those parts got thrown in a crate. Had to clear out the spot for the wife to park.

Oh yeah sorry. That is at my work. Washing cars & bikes is no big deal there. Even some wrenching as long as it's a few hours is no biggie. But you can't tackle projects there and leave them there. Just not acceptable. But it's a good perk to have at my job.

Muffin pans work great and so do cheap plastic ice cube trays . I bought these rolling shelves off of Craigs last summer for $100 . I had a bunch of old ice cube trays I was saving for god knows what and used them for small parts , nuts and bolts etc etc . The bins and trays are over flowing now . TheReaper!

Not much to report on the Ultra.

The LED I bought from HD 2 years ago never was all that good.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods055.jpg
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject037.jpg
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject038.jpg

So I bought 2 things to try from my friends at www.superbrightleds.com

This neat little thing that comes with all the different connectors.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject040.jpg
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject041.jpg

But it ended up just looking like this square group of LEDs.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject043.jpg

So I decided to go with the other option. A 360* high powered led jobber
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject039.jpg

So here's the HD
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject044.jpg

The superbright hotness
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject045.jpg

The superbright version lights the entire lens (regardless of the pic), where as the HD one is like little LED dots.

I picked up a bunch of powder which has gavin me a proper excited state. I just need to find time to mount it up.

This really should have been posted the other week, but was busy with my buds wedding and doing best man stuff for that. But... then I died from sick... so here's the missing stuff from the other week.

Got some stuff back from powder.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject078.jpg

Detail cleaned that stuff, and light wax job on it.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject081.jpg

New air cleaner ring installed on the cover
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject079.jpg

Installed and even with the chrome center nut it keeps the mix of chrome/black

http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject083.jpg

Starter cover done black. Never understood why they chromed (to bring attention to it) such a pointless cover.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject086.jpg

Put the center back in the tank dash. This is going to be a great chrome/black highlight piece as you'll see.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Ultra%20Classic/Mods/2KX%20Winterize%20N%20Mod/WinterProject080.jpg

Chrome gas cap cover with the black willie g skull... I think it looks great.

This exhaust bracket was bare metal from HD, and you could see it. I fixed that, high temp powder and a new chrome bolt to replace the rusted old one.

With 15,500 miles on my Ultra, the dealership mechanic was surprised I was on the original brake pads. He said, most people only get 10k out of them. I figure my amount of miles is due to my road trips on the highway.

I'm always amazed by how little pad material is actually on new pads. But they are suppose to be 4.5mm or bigger. Mine were 1.8 - 2.9mm.

It's always a nice feeling to get some good preventative maintenance done to the bike. All that is left to do is get & hang exhaust.

I want to change all my fluids as well this spring but Harley has some bullshit rule that the dealer has to do the first 1000 service. Oh well thats OK I guess because other than any warranty issue that may pop up it will be the only time my bike goes to the dealer. Whats the recommended seal change on the front end?

Gas Man
02-28-2011, 06:52 AM
I believe the front end doesn't need to be touched at all per the manual till 50k. Then seals at 75 or 100k. But I just know from expierence that changing the fork fluid is good insurance usually. And for under $20 it's cheap.

NO. If your dealer is telling you that they are lying to you. Harley or anyone else CANNOT require you to have maintenance done by them. If they are telling you it will void the warranty,

Picked up the ceramic exhausts... love the way ceramic looks, hate how easy it is to scratch. But love even more how well it absorbs/controls heat. Did the Ultra pipes in a flat black, because it will hide better behind the high temp powdered heat shields and big reason is to control the heat.

Will pick up the front fairing bib, and light bar Monday. The 3 light rings, "out-gassed" real bad when heated for powdering, so my powder guy (http://www.jpcoatings.com) (Jeff), is going to get a primer that controls out gassing and re-powder them again. He won't settle for anything but perfect, which is why we get along so well.

After that, I'm done with the Ultra and therefor all the winter time bike projects.

Well I got to looking at my overall appearance of the bike as stated earlier... The front end still looked completely stock and didn't show the efforts I put into the fairing backwards on the bike. Again, I'm a perfectionist so I had to do something... well a few weeks ago I got the front end parts back.

Got the "fork bib" back

But then after I had already dismissed the engine/roll bar many times... a few buds commented about it... which was all it took to send me over the edge of my powder crazy....
