Kit does not account for loss of slack in wires
I have a Softail Cross Bones and after installing the relocated turn signals the wires are now too short to reach the circuit board behind the tail light. This requires you to splice extra length onto the existing wires. I believe if HD is going to charge me $50 for a kit it better have all of the parts to it that I need and it should mention in the instructions that lengthening the wires will be a requirement. I spoke to an HD technician and he told me they always have to extend out the wires! :(

Hard to do at home
Need a bike stand to do this so I will have to have the shop do it. It was also not clear when ordering the sissy bar online you need this kit I only discovered this after I called HD

Good product but why?
After spending hundreds of dollars to add a quick release passenger backrest and rack, I was surprised that it would not fit! Seems that the sideplates will not clear the turn signal mounts. Ok, you have to relocate (actually change the turn signal mount to allow for clearance) their is a kit for this purpose (more money to spend). This is not a simple procedure and requires some electrical work. My question is why does Harley make owners jump through these hoops? it would be a simple thing to design the turn signals so as to accommodate the quick release sideplates from the beginning.
