Harley-Davidson Slim S Project: New Lighting

Alright guys so for the first part of this project I have installed a few of my personal favorite upgrades. I threw on the H-D Daymaker headlight along with the Daymaker LED auxiliary lights wrapped in the black auxiliary housing kit. An extremely easy upgrade are the smoked lenses and they make a huge difference in styling. Harley's bullet style turn signals are a great design, making a sleek styled unit, but still with a decent face large enough to get other motorist's attention. Getting rid of the unpleasant orange lens makes the entire unit perfect. Not only do the blacked out LED Daymakers look amazing, they light up the whole world! We took one of many happy customer's reviews off of DeDog of Michigan says: "By far some of the best money I have spent for my own safety. This provides much better night vision as well as daylight visibility for other drivers. Looks great too. I would purchase again without hesitation."

Adding just the headlight dramatically improves the field of visibility at night, but adding the two auxiliary lights as well lights up so much more of the road ahead of you. The trio makes an extremely wide beam of highly focused white light. You don't have to worry about not being seen at night with these lights that is for sure. I installed the same setup on my personal Road King years ago when Harley first introduced them and have been an advocate of them ever since. Continuing with the lighting system I also installed Harley's black flush-mounted fuel gauge and gas cap. I also installed flush-mount system on my personal Road King years ago.

The Slim S comes off the showroom floor all blacked out already but adding these minor additions brings the blacked out vibe to life even more, which you may have figured out, is exactly my style. I have more installs coming so keep your eyes peeled. So how many of you out there foresaw this upgrade? I am sure there are a few of you who guessed it right away. We still have more to come so keep submitting your thoughts, we do read them and I find it interesting the direction some of you think I am going with this project.
