HD Engine Guard fog lights install
« on: May 13, 2006, 10:19:25 PM »

I am installing HD's engine guard fog lights. The wire diagram has you connecting wire (red) coming off the switch to the low beam yellow wire so that the fogs are only on with the low beams. I want to be able to have the fogs on with both hi and low beams. I want the fogs controlled by the ignition like the headlights and running lights. The wire (red) coming off the switch gets connected to what? Is this at all possible?  [smiley=nixweiss.gif]
Thanks

Yes, it is possible. I don't have a Vrod manual so I can't tell you exacly where to connect. But this can be done without too much effort

It's obvious you don't like it, or the idea of one... So you know what, don't put one on your bike.

I think you may have mis-interpreted V-Girl.....you know what [smiley=worthless.gif]

It's a simple request that she made wondering what it looked like.

 [smiley=oops.gif]  I guess I should have just asked you to post photos of it.  I didn't know it was even an option.  I can't imagine where it would mount.  Didn't mean to offend you.  Just never seen one.  Curious as to what it would look like now!

Thank Rjob.  I didn't think they'd use the typical square or rounded edge for the V.  It doesn't look bad in that shot.  I'll have to see one in person or a full-body shot to see if I like it.  Personally, I prefer the bike naked.  I really didn't want to put the sissy bar or luggage rack on it and I still hate putting on the windshield for long rides, but you get beat up pretty bad on the interstate without it.

I know what you mean, I feel the same about my FXDWG3, but without the windshield long rides are out of the question so I use the FX for the bar bike (looks good sitting there) and the SEUC for the majority of riding.

It is tough to get a compromise with a fun sporty style bike like the V Rod between looks and function.

V, if they were easy to take on an off, they might come in handy for long trips as you could put pegs on them.  I've got pegs ordered for mine, as I need to stretch these short legs of mine on occasion   ;D  The VROD does look better naked, but riding unprotected can beat you up pretty badly around here...those big a$$ed bugs hurt when they hit you at 80MPH!! :o

With regards to the previous posts, somebody needs to take a chill pill this evening...this forum is open to all those interested in ALL CVO bikes, and knee-jerk reactions are unwarranted.  I must have been reading a different post, 'cause I don't see what caused that kind of reaction.  That's just one man's rational opinion though, and they're like buttholes....

Like rjob said, take a deep breath....it ain't worth it, man.
