Trading 2018 CVO street glide for 2020 CVO RG
« on: May 08, 2020, 01:18:33 PM »

Joining the shark club and never even road a RG! Curious what mods you guys recommend and I run 16” yaffe bars on my 18 SG now so would 16” be the same on a RG or should I do 14” or T bars??

Of course my opinion:

1. Seat - I went with the HD heated hammock - sure there are others
2. A real windshield - went with Freedom
3. Rear shocks - went with Ohlins 159 - but others appear to have good results with other shocks - the stock ones are oh so sad
4. Fan assist oil cooler - should have already been on the bike for the cost
5. Like the XM - but think you have to add on the 2020
6. Added the heated Kahuna grips - again for the cost, should have already been on there

If I had to pick only one change - it would be the rear shocks

Congratulations on the new CVO RG.  I have had several CVO RG, then one CVO SG and then back to the CVO RG. 

I have run Yaffe 14" on three road glides, one street glide and one road king.  They all felt to be same height and width.  So if you like the 16" Yaffe on your street glide they should be the same in 16" on the new road glide.

When swapping bars, I would add the Kahuana grips heated grips.  However I do thing the 20 got heated grips as part of the bike the XM was removed for 20.

My first change would be windshield.  Lots of options.  Choices really depend on personal preference and weather or not you have a back seat passenger.  I run a Klock Works 14" sport flair.  I like the looks and it is mostly functional for my hight, my wife has the same size on her bike and she get no wind, but she is 5'8"  I get some wind and I am 6'1".

T-Bars are the latest trend.  Not sure I would do them as blocks gages or you have to relocate.  I'm just very comfortable with Yaffe bars.

I got the 14 factory 47 legacy bars. fit no problems. I added back rest and luggage rack all detachable so i can solo out when I don't need the space.  I never used the luggage rack but i got it. and Highway pegs.  BTW you will love the ride. I got off a street glide onto the RG no going back for me.

Don't let that distract you from the fact that In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The  A-Team.

Hey there.  I have a 20 RG CVO in Sand Dune and also went the F47 Legacy in 12". Not a giant fan of the meathooks on the RG. I also left the SG for the RG and really love it.  I suppose the only gripe is the reach to the GTS but its a small gripe.  The bike handles so damn well!

that's why they make thumb switches.  there is literally no  reason to touch the screen on the gts at all.
