    Customizing your Harley

    Isn't it always satisfying to modify your own bike and end up having a great sense of ownership? I always believe in having a plan before starting on the custom modifications. Besides, you should always ensure that at the end of it all, your bike will still feel comfortable and functional. Do you have any other suggestions?

    For me, the most important thing is to ensure that while customizing the bike, safety still becomes important. I wouldn't also want to customize a bike that ended up being uncomfortable.

    I'll second that, safety first. I never put customizations on that will impede a moving part that would compromise my safety. Looks aren't that important.

    I think it's also important to know when enough is enough. Sometimes people tend to get a little carried away and go overboard when it comes to customizing their bikes. Sometimes less really is more.

    I agree that safety should always be of paramount importance when modifying or customizing your bike. It would be idiotic to sacrifice your well-being for a good-looking bike.

    My brother has a few of these skills, having studied mechanical engineering but I think he just learnt it on his own. He did a perfect job with my bike and I have never had to worry about safety.

    I am one of those riders who believe that the lesser the customizations you have, the better your bike is. I wouldn't do anything that would place my safety in jeopardy.

    I do agree that sometimes less definitely is more. Especially when the customizations and modifications start to take away from the actual beauty and safety of your bike.

    I have a couple of questions if anyone can help. First, I was replacing my headlight bulb with a led bulb. When unplugging the light, I damaged the plug on the harness side. I got a three prong plug to replace the plug with. Now I have a red light on my dashboard that stays on. Any suggestions on how I can fix this. The light come on and has high and low beams. Second, I am going to put led strip lights under my gas tank. What do I wire the led's to? I know I need to find a keyed positive. I have a 2008 Sportster 1200. I think it's designated a FX1200C, but not positive. Thanks for any help.
