Though the rear lighting on my 2022 Ultra Limited was good I felt that it could use a little more. I am one of those guys who wants folks behind me to see me and also know when I am stopping or turning.

 

 There are panels between the saddlebags and the fender that have cutouts for these lights. The lamps are mounted in a sealed housing that slips into the opening and are held in place with the saddlebag hardware and an adhesive pad. They would give me the additional lighting I was looking for.

There is a choice of a smoke lens. https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/en/shop/keystone-auxiliary-led-run-brake-turn-lamp/p/67801082 which I decided to use.

There is also the traditional red lens model https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/en/shop/keystone-auxiliary-led-run-brake-turn-lamp/p/67801080

A nice function to using these links is that there is a place on the page you can put in your motorcycle information and it will let you know if it fits your motorcycle and if any other parts are necessary for proper installation.

The installation of these lights is something that most people who work on their own motorcycle should be able to do. The kit does come with a detailed instruction sheet and it should be read prior to installing these lights.

NOTE

The temperature should be between 70 and 100 degrees for proper drying of adhesive pad and at least 24 hours should pass before exposing to water. Maximum Strength after 72 hours.
