You're right; not much info on the GPS unit.
However, it does have a rear-view camera mode so you can see if anyone is behind you when you're backing up. What a great feature for a motorcycle; why didn't i think of that. lol.
One thing I would caution is that the application information says you'd have to remove the speedo to make the fairing fit. If all you have is a speedo, then this may not be an issue since you could use the GPS as your speedo since most display the speed on the screen.

I'm replacing my chrome stock turn signals for black ones.
All I really need is the back piece (the piece that's chrome on my bike).
Anyone either have 2 black ones they'd like to sell, or swap (my chrome ones for your black ones)?
If so, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Here in Colorado, where the air is a little thinner, I get 42-43 MPG going to-and-from work (7 miles one way) in the city. My light usually comes on between 140-145 miles. However, when we go riding in the mountains, my MPG's will sky-rocket to 55+. Probably because we're usually not going faster than 50-60 MPH (and we're going up and down); also, some of the nicer roads require 40-50 MPH.
My MPGs differ quite a bit on the highway; sometimes there's no wind, sometimes we get 70+ mph winds like we had a few days ago. What an interesting place Colorado; I love it. I don't envy the weather people though.
All this on an '07 KP with an S&S, Stage 1 drags, Power Commander, and windshield (now WOC fairing).

Ok, so I'm going to re-hijack this thread from you guys.
Anybody have any info on these albums?
« on: February 23, 2011, 10:34:01 PM »
I know it's been a while since I've been here, but I was sure I had created an album when I initially joined.
However, I can't seem to find it, or anyone else's album for that matter.
Does the KEG not host member albums any more?

I bought my WOC fairing from a private party and it didn't come with instructions. However, I just emailed WOC and they sent them to me.
What the instructions say is basically what everyone here have already posted.
Very simple installation. If WOC is thinking of making a mounting kit, it would make it that much simpler.

Yes the quick release brackets do work, we have a bike with then on up here in Toronto, Ontario
The same goes with me. It's been 2 months since I put the fairing on. I used my old quick-release brackets and so far no problems.

I just got a Wide Open Custom fairing for my Pin. I'm getting it pinstriped tomorrow, but so far I'm liking it.
A lot of people have given me a lot of compliments so far. I'm going to need a little more time, and more highway miles to really compare the difference between this new fairing and my old windshield. But for now, I'm really enjoying it.

Not a bad idea about moving the ignition switch onto the fairing.
Look forward to your experience.

Looks like these things are hard to come by. Haven't had any luck finding anyone that wants to sell theirs.
So I went ahead and got one.
Can't wait to see how it makes the bike look. But more importantly, I'm waiting so see how it deflects the wind compared to my basic windshield.

Ya, it's looking to be that way.
I saw a few that were for sale, but that was a few months ago.

I understand that Gerbing has an integrated power distribution unit in the jacket liner that can allow connecting two separately controlled items on two individual circuits, with the wiring already built in. Wish the TM's would come up with something like this.
That's true. That's one reason I like my Gerbings. I have a single wire coming from the battery that plugs into my controller (which is a dual, multi-temp unit (not just on and off)). From there it goes straight to the jacket liner. I plug my gloves into the included wires that extend from a slot at the end of each sleeve of the liner, and the pants plug into the same housing in the liner that the controller plugged into.
The controller separately controls the temp of the jacket with one knob and the gloves and pants with the other. This is perfect since, when I don't wear my pants, I can still control the temp of the jacket liner separate from the temp of the gloves.
