New to me 750 rider

Picked up a used 750 at my local HD dealership a few days ago and am having a blast on it so far. Changes so far:
Emgo 7/8 T-bars, 6" rise
"Gauntlet" style fairing
Wisamic LED Headlight
12.5" Progressive 412 shocks

Came with the Vance and Hines pipe 😅

If anyone is around the Las Cruces, NM area I could use some riding buddies! Cheers!!

Welcome to the forum! It sounds like you are jumping right in with making the bike your own. Are there any other plans to mod the bike more in the near future?


I've got one of those Wismiac headlights that was given to me by Gaijin. I never got around to installing it because he didn't exactly give it a glowing review. I'd like to hear what you think about it.

Thank you for the welcome! And currently I'm waiting on a few small parts to get in and brake lines before jumping into bigger projects. I did see a tank swap to a 3.3 gal 883 tank that I'm kind of interested in though .

As far as the Wisamic headlight, I really like it. The city I live in is not very well lit at night and the improvement over the stock light is by leaps and bounds. There are a few small "glare spots" in the thrown light pattern but nothing obnoxious or distracting to the eye while riding. Not to mention it look pretty nice!

Did you buy it without the test ride? My H-D dealers will not let it be ridden until the open recall on the brakes is completed. They say the kits are expected in April. So I test drove a sport glide instead. That is a beautiful bike, and so I am about to buy that instead. I was going to buy Street 750 under Freedom Promise, but this year Virginia is not able to legally participate.

@Yellohj I did do a test ride on it. However because mine is the 2015 model and I live in an extremely dry climate, the corrosion issue with the brake pistons is not very likely to happen. That being said, the 4 piston brake setup is something that I will probably get to, in the rear of the bike at least. Other than that I'm still Loving it!

They're pretty nice, but I do feel a little discomfort in my hands after a while. I think some weighted bar ends would help a lot going down the road.

Few small changes to the bike:
2 inch tank lift
3/4" handlebar risers
10 oz. Weighted bar ends
ODI MX V2 ROGUE Lock-On Grips
Roughcraft axle nut covers and seat screw
Tinworks Highway/Crash bar with Derlin sliders
Mirror extensions

And finally got around to cleaning up the wiring up front

Hey, this bike is looking great! Exactly what I’m looking to build. Did you need to extend the cables/wires to fit the t-bar handlebars?

@Winter Thank you! And I'm still running the stock clutch cable and throttle lines without any issues with the T -bars. After adding the 3/4 inch riser to the handlebar setup it does make revs go up slightly at full lock to the right but not to an unmanageable degree (I think this could be due to the tank lift bracket pressing against the throttle lines). Been riding with this setup since just before my 4-23 update and couldn't be more happy with it!
