What did you do to Your Tri-Glide Today?

I have a new-to-me 2009 Tri Glade Ultra. Fortunately, I previously had a 2008 Ultra Classic and kept all my notes from 10 years of ownership and upgrades. Today's project concerns a fairing mount for my Garmin Zumo.

Lurking about did not reveal whether the Garmin Zumo XT is compatible with “Road Tech Zumo GPS Fairing Mounting Kit, p/n 92338-09, $55, advertised for mounting a Garmin 660/665. The answer is YES, if you also have the Zumo XT motorcycle base. (Probably all Garmin motorcycle bases can attach to the same mount, e.g., a Ram-Mount.) Also, there are parts in the H-D mounting kit that will connect the Zumo XT power lead to the accessory connectors in the headlamp loom.

However, because Garmin's motorcycle base for Zumo-XT is a simple 2-pin power connector, H-D cannot provide a wiring harness kit for audio system integration. Therefore, you must either depend on the Zumo XT external speaker (barely adequate in a car!) or will need to use wireless helmet communicators such as Sena or Cardo.

IMHO, this is a much better solution than still using H-D's '96-'13 comm system. (Caveat: if you need your CB radio, then plug in a handheld mic.) Newer bikes probably need a different fairing mount -- and I don't know if H-D does or will offer one.

Here's the link to the above kit:

Welcome Roger.
 
I bled my clutch and had a heck of time, but got it done, need to find some speed bleeders for it, have heard this is easy, if anybody knows what size let me know, it is a 2018 harley triglide and it is stock slave cylinder.


All for now Trampas
 
Just returned from a 12 day, 4500 plus mile trip from Chicago to Santa Monica riding/following old Route 66, then returned home through Utah and Colorado and Nebraska…

An epic journey to say the least! Stormy, super hot, and spectacular all in one package! …My Tri Glide preformed flawlessly in the heat (3 days above 110), AND on the road to Oatman.

Me? I need a day or so to recover before I attempt to remove some SERIOUSLY baked on bugs!
 
336 miles from Tupelo MS to home today . Three day total 806 miles . Dodged the rain most of the last hundred miles. LOL I got more wet walking from the gas pump into the store in the rain , than I did on the bike . Awesome trip !!
