I had my dealer install the OE light bar on my LT a year ago right when I got the bike.
I have bought stuff like my Mustang seat at Dennis Kirk and I don't think you will beat their prices on anything. Try them out !!
Just be sure when the light bar is installed it is powered off an accessory circuit instead of off the head light. It can be relayed off the head light to come on and off with the light but if powered off the headlight can easily overload the 10 amp circuit.
Yes it is fairly simple, I was even able to do it myself...Ha Ha. I got mine through [email protected] for $208. The only thing I found different from their instructions was they said to connect the power wire to the wire in the headlight that is Red with Blue tracer, but on my bike it was actually a White with Blue tracer wire. Don't know if you will find the same thing when you go to do yours, but just thought I'd mention it. Good Luck. And by the way, it reallly looks nice and it really makes a big difference in lighting up the road at night (the main reason I got it).
I picked up a Cobra light bar the day I picked up my 900 Custom from the dealer. It was $235. But since I bought the bike there, I get lifetime 10% off all accessories, it was $211.50. Very easy install. I'm very happy with it.
Just a thought, but if you have a windshield, make sure you do not have clearance issues with the new light bar. I have a Memphis Shades and had trouble finding anything to work. Supposedly there is one by Show Chrome, or something, that will work. But for the money involved I gave up. Instead I went to Wal-mart and bought two chrome driving lights for $19/pair. I then ordered some stainless steel p-clamps and hardware from McMaster Carr. Spent about $40 total. Good thing too. I wrecked it two weeks later and crushed one of the lamps as well as the chrome bar that the stock turn-signals are hooked to. That is where I had mounted it. Once I get it all put back together I will post some pics. The lights really did a great job... before I hit that truck!
I bought the Baron ultimate light bar which replaces the stock turn signals. It is not a full light bar as it has no bar. Also, you loose the marker light because that is used as the light source and the turn signals is the turn signal wire. I haven't installed mine yet. My bike is in storage till spring rolls around. Here is the product and reviews in Cruiser Customizing. Someone stated on there for install on the 900 to use the Vulcan 1500 install instructions. I will take a pic of my bike with it after I install it.
I added the Cobra light bar a few weeks after picking up the bike in June 08. Pretty easy install. As stated, light wire color might be different. But, it's easy to figure out. I haven't had an over load issue. But, the way the switch fits into the bar frame, without any insulation, has caused a blown fuse if not careful when washing bike.
I use the bar on high beams during the day, to be seen. Not as much at night, pretty blinding to other drivers. BTW, when I've blown the fuse, I feel pretty naked....
After some good discussion in another thread, doing the ZX14 shock mod sounded interesting. We have a 1200 mile trip planned this summer and a way to absorb some of the bumps in the road sounds pretty appealing. I bought this shock from a parts recycler on eBay. I plan on doing a total rebuild...
Summer season is very annoying because you don't wish to leave your house due to hot weather. Air is very hot and humid that air conditioning systems in home are not sufficient to keep it cool. But if you want your air conditioner to run smoothly and provide you efficient cooling, always service...

I’m thinking about doing a “stage 1” to my 2018 Vulcan 900 starting with the Danmoto Highwayman 2to1 exhaust. Has anyone had any experience with this exhaust on the 900 and any suggestions on an air intake and fuel mapping system?
