04 Limited Mods: Plate Drop, Leds and more

Hello all, new here, just wanted to share the progress I've made so far with my 04 Volusia Limited. Purchased about a month ago and so far I have:

Installed LED headlamp
Installed aftermarket turn signals + LED bulbs
Plate Drop
LED plate lights

I have just ordered a LED taillight and new relay to hopefully solve the hyperflash problem.
So far I love the look!

Forgot about debaffeling both pipes as well. Pretty much every thing I've done I've found here so thanks for the help!

Greetings from Indiana.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Your personal before and after opinions on pipe debaffle?

Started out with drilling 6 holes. Still wasn't loud enough for me. Used a hole saw and broom stick to break the weld on the baffle and take it out completely. Much louder than the drilled holes but still nothing close to friends Harley. I think the debaffeling is worth it because it is noticeably louder but if your looking for very loud pipes you'll need to upgrade the pipes. Hope that helps

It will never sound like a Harley. Completely debaffled stock pipes sound like a wet fart. It isn't pleasant.

It's people that modify their pipes to sound like Harleys and become obnoxious that gives Harley riders a bad name.

I was wondering why the frisbee was getting bigger........then it hit me!

I always thought the "I before E except after C rule was "weird" , but "Scientist" disagree ?

EVERY TIME I FIND THE KEY TO SUCCESS......SOMEBODY CHANGES THE LOCK!
