    Default How to save you money

    I could have saved $2500 by doing the install myself. IMO - I have better than average mechanical skill set. However I would want to participate in a conversion myself before taking on a full blown project on my own bike. The instructions I downloaded from thei website were very detailed. I did save several dollars on crating, shipping and taxes which would have been included if I had the kit shipped to my home. Those three items combined would have been 1/3 the cost of labor.

    Recently I took my newly converted bike to the dealership with a couple of annoying issues that appeared after the conversion. Left front blinker flashing rapidly and the Trip A & B feature was not working. Tucson HD determined the left lighted control switch pack had gone bad as did the Custom Dynamics LED turn signal assembly. Both were functioning as designed prior to the conversion. I'll chalk it up to "cost of conversion". All systems are working fine now. Oh yeah, I had to replace the original 4 year old battery shortly after the conversion too.

    Not unusual for the C/D LED failure, that was part of the conversion kit, but the trip meter being inop has ZERO to do with the conversion. Could be possibly traced back to something as simple as a battery change or being disconnected. The electronics on these motorcycles today are very delicate. Charging the battery can sometime cause intermittent faults in the ECM/computer. Glad you got squared away.
