If that is the case... get some fire/abrasion resistant cover to put the wires in... makes it look better while protecting the wires.  I used this on mine:



You insert two pieces of heat shrinking tube at each end, the protection sleeve... heat the ends to have the shrinking tube hold the sleeve in place and you are done.

I'm off shore at work right now, other wise I would take a picture, I notched my windshield bracket so it would clear the wires when installed and I could keep them hidden.

I think that's what I would do also, run wires between the bracket to the back and around rear forks,
This is the shortest route, any small wires showing cover in a silver braided sleeving, and notch windshield bracket (make sure to seal notch in primer).

I've installed them with the wires running through the bracket to the rear and into the nacelle. I can fit the windshield ok as long as I'm careful not to trap the wire protector sleeve. It doesn't look too bad. At least the wires are not too visible from the front. Pictures show view from the front with and without windshield. I haven't connected the wires yet. Thought I'd gauge opinion first

Very tidy harleychef. I have considered drilling holes in the fork shrouds. I'm having windshield issues now. Can you post more picks please

Yea Bav...we had to avoid the same issue.  I didnt want the wires running around the nacelle, so I opted for drilling with the grommet.  Placement allows for the windshield to be placed on/off with zero issues.  I'll post more pics ASAP.

Wachuko, where did you get the caliper mount for your Headwinds revolver spot lights?

Windshield issues fixed. The aux bracket kit comes with two spacers for use with certain models of RK. I bought another two (part number HD-6645) so I could use them top and bottom. Gives just enough clearance for the wires to fit in between the windshield and the bracket. Windshield goes on and off very easy now as long as I'm careful not to trap the wires.

All I've got to do now is work out how to wire it all in (not one of my strengths!).



Don't think I'm going to drill a hole at this point just try to route them tidily behind the fork shrouds and see if they bug me too much

I got mine installed yesterday, here is a first pic. I look into details for the wire routing tomorrow. Job well done thanks to the parts list. Ride safe!

Looking good Kingpin. I'm going to try some orange shrink sleeve over mine but it may look worse than the black sleeve supplied.

I've worked out how to connect the turn signals but any help on how to connect the grey lamp wires would be very much appreciated. I have ordered a service manual but it has not arrived yet so I don't have access to a wiring diagram.

The orange shrink sleeve is far too light and looks worse. Back to black I think.

Any advice on the lamp wire connections anyone?
