    Congrats Preacher on the nice looking ride. Welcome to the family. Yep and hold on to that detachable sissy bar with rack as there were only 2 different detachable sissy bars for our Raiders and they are very hard to find new or used.

      Lookin' real purdy in that metallic red!  Got a couple grand worth of aftermarket goodies to start.  Get her some new shoes before you ride in the rain.  You found a jewel there!     O8O

      There's no substitute for cubic inches and a good engine management system!   Hmmm, well maybe a blower, NOS or turbo....

      Thanks everyone, Iíve already been on the phone with Ivan in Greenville and we are scheduling a time when I can come take care of the Big Air Kit and ECU flash. Heís only a few hours away from me and completing those mods and replacing the blinkers (left rear is broke and the others have dry rot on the rubber so Iíll replace them all) will make this Raider my 10 year dream come true!!! You have all been very helpful, thanks again for the advice and heads up on potential issues!

      If you have to replace the rear signal lights anyway, you may just want to go with the Blaster-X Integrated LED Tail Light. A lot of us have it and love it. It really cleans up the backend and they're safer because they flash when you're braking getting other drivers' attention. You can clean up the tail by doing your own cutting on the plastic or get rid of it with the Kuryakyn Sub-Fender. Just make sure if you get it to remove the back fender when installing. It will save on the use of lot of cursing.

      I've attached a pic to give an idea. The subfender does not come with the skull screw heads. I added those.

      Congrats on your Raider purchase! 

      That bike looks well cared for.  I'll second the suggestion to purchase the XBlaster (I attached a photo of my Raider with the signals removed using the XBlaster).  I too went with the IVAN's flash and am a very happy customer.

      Kuryakyn doesn't make the sub fender any more - but he can cut the plastic off and add some bullet lights.

      Damn!  I'm glad I'm not looking for aftermarket Raider parts.

      Congrats on the bike, love the color BTW.... ;D  The unicorn backrest is a very nice addition, they go used for about $500 on average when you can find them.
