Default After a Fury I'm now on a Stryker

Hi everyone,
Just bought a 2017 stryker about a month ago after owning a Honda fury for less than 24 hours and only 58 miles (got cut off by a guy turning right from the left lane with a trailer). Due to the unfortunate events I ended up with the better of the 2 and wish I'd gone with the Stryker the first go around. Looking to do a few upgrades, already crested over the 1500 mile mark with pipes and power commander 5 now looking to do a headlight conversion to a 7.5" light bar. I'm hoping someone in here has done it so that I know what I'm getting into.

Should be easy wiring download the free manual, if the light bar has a hi/lo just match up wires, if I remember male spade connectors will plug into our harness connector., So just a matter of knowing what color wire does what, if no hi/lo ucan use whatever circut (hi/lo) you want just make sure you have the light switch on handle bar in right position. Could be a small challenge mounting if your not handy with metal.

eww...sorry to hear about your first bike. Look at it this way, if you'd had the Stryker first, it could have been that one that you lost. Glad you're good and got back on the hoss.

Welcome from NY, glad you made it ok from the accident and able to hop back on the saddle with the Stryker.

Honestly I did look at the Fury before sitting on the Stryker but the more I thought of it, It looked like the Fury was the poor man's Orange County Chopper. Too much "plastic" and over designed for my taste.

Anyhow,Be safe and enjoy the new ride!

Miko... the new Venture has a kickstand you put down with your hand.

Looks like you started a movement, dude.
