I agree the mirror extenders are a must, I did the mod about 2 weeks ago.
I agree concerning the mirrors but you can keep the loud friggin muffler modification. I hate loud bikes and that is the VERY reason always hated Harleys till now.
I love the sound of the 750 and wouldn't change it for the world.
Wow Very nice mods!!! the 1st thing im ordering is the mirror extenders. One small question does the bike still pass inspection if you change the pipe like that?
Any other big plans for it? Im tyring to figure out whats best to use to cover up some of the exposed wires. any suggestions?
Any suggestions on new grips?
Here is a pic of my Nightstick . Of corse its after the person ran me off the road and into gravel Is there a certain paint i can get to match that color? Or is a replacement really my only choice? The dealership is the one who did the end of my pipe this way. sorry for the rain lol.
Yes, try an Auto Parts store they will have engine paint and paint that will withstand higher temps . The muffler looks good.......I like the way they did it, nice job!
Do you have the H-D part number and/or a link? The only one I found was Part Number 80872-12 for $274.95 but it doesn't list it as being for the Street 500/750 (or any 2015 Harleys at this time).The last add-on is the HD Screaming Eagle Nightstick slip-on muffler. This Jet Black long diffusion disc muffler produces a HD raspy tone when diffusion disk are left in place at the mufflers end. However, once those diffusion disk are taken off, then you get the full Monty of Harley-Davison’s loud “get out of my way” sound that HD is so famous or infamous for. Yes, this muffler takes the Street 500 into the big boys playing field as far as sounding like a Harley only could. Makes it sound like you have a 1200cc instead of a 500cc engine. In fact, earplugs are recommended when riding; remember you have been warned!
What I notice was not only did the Street sound louder like Harley’s do, but also the absence of backpressure on the engine really gave it an extra boost in first and second gear adding to its performance. So much so that it flew me back into the seat when I really hit the throttle hard. This is something I hadn’t notice with the stock muffler. I’m not saying it can’t be done, but it was just more noticeable with the Nightstick on verses the stock muffler.
Hold the Phone everyone! After seeing Street750Nc end to his Screaming Eagle Nightstick I decided to change my end to a polished one. I like his so much but had to make the end look like chrome.Here is a pic of my Nightstick .

It did seem a bit pricey but then all H-D add-ons are pricey. My partner and I are considering fabricating a 2-1 exhaust that fits on the stock pipes and it isn't all that hard. I used to be a supervisor for an after market manufacturer of exhaust systems and I had the M/C department. Mufflers are relatively easy to fabricate so we're going to give it a shot anyway because we might also use it on our Street 500 bobber project.
Today my partner and I looked at some mods for the Street 500/750 that some might be interested in.
Front controls: Some people like front controls over mid-controls and I'm one of them. Based upon the visual inspection today it appears fairly straight forward although working around the forward exhaust pipe probably requires moving the brake cylinder to in front of the exhaust pipe and running a longer hydraulic line and brake light sensor to tie into the relocated brake cylinder. The left side simply requires kicking out the shifter linkage about 1" to clear the side case.
Faux rigid swing arm, rear fender, and new seat: To go along with the front controls a different seat would be cool and changing out the swing arm for a faux rigid and a different seat would provide an excellent look and ride with the front controls. This might require some relocating of the electrical and perhaps even a different battery but it's under consideration. Hiding the single spring/shock shouldn't be hard to do but we won't know until we tear down the bike and check it out. This is only based upon the visual inspection with the battery/water reserve cover panels and seat removed. We'll know more once we remove the rear fender. Mentioning the fender the factory fender reminds me of a Ducati and I'm tossing that one in favor of a plain metal fender that's more traditional bobber looking with the change in the swing arm, seat, and front controls.
Different radiator grill: The stock faring isn't bad but I'm not into the size of the holes through the grill. It will allow too large of rocks through that could damage the radiator. The grill can be changed by just drilling out the plastic attack locations. More on this later. BTW the stock radiator itself (w/fan) is excellent.
Chrome Kick Stand: The factory one is a bit cheesy for me and I'd like to move the spring to the backside of the stand to hide it.
Chrome Belt Guard: I'm not a fan of the plastic belt guard, period.
I'm with others in changing the mirrors to kick them out a least 1" more on each side. They work for checking the lanes next to you but you just can't see behind you in your lane at all.
I'm also going to change the hand grips and controls. There are tons of these as the Street has standard diameter handle bars.
We're a couple of weeks away from tear down because I want the 1,000 mile service complete before starting that.
