Upgrades like simple low-budget, quick and easy installations can make all the difference to your existing fairing. Cycle Visions in San Diego, CA, calls it "giving your bike a facelift" with the company's Illumabezel (patent pending). Fitting '98 to '06 Road Glide fairings, the Illumabezel replaces the stock headlight shield found on Road Glides and incorporates additional LED run and turn lights. As its name implies, the Illumabezel helps you be more visible while riding and adds a cool and unique look to your fairing.
The Illumabezel is available in a chrome-plated (MSRP $189) or black (MSRP $179) bezel with integrated LED run and turn signals and features a clear or smoked lens. It comes complete with a plug-in wire harness that fits both 6- and 3-pin connectors, depending on your model year, and works in conjunction with your stock front turn signals. If you want to clean up the front of your Road Glide, you can pick up Cycle Visions' load equalizer (MSRP $19.95) and remove the stock turn signals. However, take note that the Illumabezel is not DOT-approved to be used as a sole form of turn signals up front.
We met with Matt Cortez, master technician at Anaheim-Fullerton Harley-Davidson in Fullerton, CA, for the installation. Although we had a master handy, we were told the average person could do the install in about an hour. We snapped photos of the Illumabezel being installed and how it dressed up the look of the fairing.
