    It's just a pic of the 15 with the adjustable passenger board mounts ... they have been on several bike/trikes ... they are in a bag right now ... probably get installed tomorrow. Not sure why I'm gonna install them, even at their highest point, Harley can't reach them. And he's my only co rider.

    Default New Style Highway Peg Mounts

    So, before the trip I saw these on eBay, New Old Stock for $25. Normally at Harley they are around $50. My issue with the mounts I had was I could not get my legs 100% stretched out unless I put my heal on the peg. Not the most comfortable position. So I bought these:

    Engine Guard Mounting Kit.jpg

    I didn't install them before I left because I wanted to see on a long trip was it me or the mounts. I was right, the mounts where just too close, by like an inch.

    Here's what they look like mounted

    Left:

    L D Done.jpg

    L SB Done.jpg

    Right:

    R D Done.jpg

    R SB Done.jpg

    Front:

    Front Done.jpg

    Front Up.jpg

    As you can see, the little Man had to supervise ... ... he's not very helpful, but he's cute.

    Two things to consider, or tips if you will, if you think you might like these on your ride.

    1) you need to ensure you put them low enough to get a gap between the lower faring and the mount. It would be really easy to have these mounts touching the lower faring and with the vibration destroy the paint.

    Here's where I'm talking about, you can see the gap:

    Attachment 71642

    2) There is not enough room to get an allen wrench into the inside screw if you mount them more to the back instead of the front. I didn't need like 2", just about an inch. If you have longer legs than me, you can get another inch by flipping them over. I was able to tighten the inside screw while the outside was very loose. Then I "tapped" it into place with my palm and tightened the outside screw.

    You can see there's not enough room to get a socket with an allen on it, but, the allen wrench works fine. As always, I used blue locktite on the threads.

    Now when I sit on the seat, I can extend my legs 100% (maybe like 98%, first thing I learned in boot camp was to never lock my knees). By pushing them out more I also have plenty of room to use the switchblades for my heal. Should be way more comfy. I guess it's the addition of the artificial knees that made this necessary ... but ... I'm ready for the next trip.

    Default CVO Style Adjustable Passenger Board Mounts

    So, I also wanted to install these so I did, no sense having items you paid for without using them, right?, right?, So I did.

    Left:

    L CVO Done.jpg

    Right:

    R CVO Done.jpg

    After getting them on, I remembered exactly why I decided to save them when I traded the 11 Ultra (it's the bike they came on). If you look at the picture, you can see that the darby cover is now fully exposed and that makes it easier to remove and you can see it's whole message. On the other side, you have better access to the digital dipstick and the quick release trans dip stick. I know, I know .. I could, in my case, just remove the passenger boards altogether and be done, but, I have all this shiny chrome ....

    Okay ... so a tip.

    Anyone who has ever tried to change the passenger boards or their mounts knows this, but, if it saves just one person from having to go to Harley to get a new ball or spring ... it's worth my time posting about it.

    When you take the boards off the mount, make sure you are on a flat surface and maybe put a rag under it. There is a detent ball and spring that holds the passenger board up when you put it up.

    OEM Ready.jpg

    Here's the spring and ball after I removed the OEM mount:

    Spring & Ball.jpg

    If you look at the board you can see the dent the detent ball needs to be put in.

    Here's the CVO style mount with the spring and ball ready to install the board:

    CVO Spring & Ball.jpg

    Here's a look at the OEM mount so you can see the hole the spring goes in ... not sure why HD makes three holes, but, the spring goes in the one it fits. Might have something to do with holding grease of HD lube??? Unclear to me, but, everyone I've ever looked at is like that.

    Spring Hole.jpg

    You need to ensure that the spring and ball stay in their respective spots while you install the board. In my case it's the Kuryakyn's that mount with two screws. The OEM mount with two rods that are held in place by gaps in the rubber pad on the board.

    Since the CVO style are only held on with one screw and a peg, I need to clean up the hole the OEM mounted with and touch up the paint.

    Lastly, I noticed today while getting the rest of the "stuff" I took out of the trunk and putting the tools back, The E-Series are showing some signs of maybe the trike is running a tad rich.

    E-Series.jpg

    It's interesting that the left one is showing more signs ... usually the right does. Since about 80-90% of this trip was highway, might do some more highway (70 mph) tuning to help with this. Since it was chilly before I left I only did like 2 runs. Who knows, maybe I can coax another mph or two out of the trike ... LOL ... maybe not.

    True, but, with the Power Vison, I'm really certain I can't get to lean when auto tuning. I never have before ...

    Default Maybe no tuning

    Doubt it would hurt, but, it's running so good and sooooo cool that I may just leave well enough alone. Here's how the E-Series looked after just a water hose off. Wand wash hose off:
