Thought I would never sell any of my motorcycles but decided to sell the Sportster Superlow. :crying:I'm very happy with my Street 750 and haven't been riding the Sportster any. I also didn't trade her in for the Street since I wasn't sure if I would regret it or not. Well, with some of the money from the sell, I've ordered some parts for my Street, including:


- Engine Guard
- Tallboy Seat
- Sissy Bar w/backrest pad
- Quick Release Sport Windshield
- Center Stand
- Universal Helmet Lock


I already have the National Cycle Deflector screen and although I do like it, I've really wanted the Harley windshield. I had also thought about the Mustang seat with driver backrest, as I've mentioned in previous posts, but I'm not paying that much. Way overpriced! ...especially when I can use that money towards all these parts.


Looking forward to installing these parts and really hope the tallboy seat provides the comfort I would like. Although, the stock Street configuration was already more comfortable than the Sportster. I just really liked that Sportster though even with the leg cramps and back pain. lol

Nice upgrades!
I recently added the firebrand exhaust, then installed the front axle, rear axle, and swing arm nut covers - really dresses things up. I decided to add the nut/bolt covers after installing the exhaust - The firebrand so much shorter than stock the rear axle nut was much more noticeable. My dealer had to order these for me, but I only waited a few days.

Be sure to post some pictures when everything is installed!

I'll definitely post some pics. Looks like it'll be a little while for the parts to arrive but excited about it!
I like the upgrades you described! You have any pics to upload or link to any previous post?
I do have the Vance and Hines exhaust installed which I'm real happy with. I also have the fuelpak and air intake but haven't installed yet. I've held off thinking I may wait until after warranty has expired. So far the dealer hasn't had an issue with my current upgrades but not sure if that would change when using the fuelpak. My local dealer is great though so they may not care.

For the rear backrest and pad, do you need the luggage rack, or do you already have that installed?
Yeah, I had installed the luggage rack which was for my Givi luggage (picture attached). However, I don't use it that often and already have a sissy bar backpack that I bought from eBay quite a while back and really like it so plan to use it instead. This is the backpack I had bought:
Motorcycle Trunk Sissy Bar Bag Black Backpack Mesh Bottle Pocket Weatherproof | eBay

I mainly use the Givi luggage with my CBR250 when needed which can easily be attached and detached as desired. I'm going for a bit of a different look for my Street though than originally anticipated. I also bought a couple Stone Free parts that I haven't installed yet but plan to soon. Can't wait for the whole new look to come together. ...as well as some additional comfort with the tallboy seat.

Here's some pictures with some of the parts installed. I'm still waiting on the Harley windshield and engine guard. Here's what done so far:

- Long stem mirrors
- Front tool bag
- Vance & Hines slip on exaust
- Luggage rack w/sissy bar & backrest
- Sissy bar backpack
- Horn relocation kit
- Center stand
- Tallboy seat

I really like the center stand but was a bit harder to install than anticipated. Not easy to get to the bolts and also had to buy a metric socket to get the job done.
The sissy bar backpack is a bit big for the small backrest pad that it's attached too but still secured ok. I may either get a smaller backpack or larger backrest or something.
I still have the National Cycle deflector screen mounts attached to the handlebars. I'm thinking about keeping them there if it doesn't look too bad since that will be an easy way to switch between the Harley Windshield and the stock fairing with the National Cycle deflector screen. Kind of best of both worlds that would only take a minute to switch between the two.

I'm so glad I got the Stone Free horn relocation kit. That's such a huge difference without that darn horn sticking out the side of the motorcycle!

Went out for a ride with the new tallboy seat and was happy with the results! I don't have the "knees up" issue and had better balance and overall riding experience. The change in seating position does seem to effect access to the brake pedal, more so than before. Shifting didn't seem to be affected any though but would be nice to adjust the brake pedal if that's even possible.

After riding with the Tallboy seat, are you still glad you purchased it? I have been really interested in it, just reserved because I don't like how the passenger section makes the back in look bulky. I do like how your sissy bar eliminates that. Looks good! I am definitely going to need to get the horn relocation kit from stone free.

When you installed your Tallboy seat, did you have to adjust the rear strap handle? I am having a pain getting it on. I like it there as I use it to hold small stuff onto the bike. For now I have just tucked it under the tallboy seat, so if I switch back, I can still have the strap without having to screw it back on.

You need to remove the strap. Its 2 Allen Screws under the seat. I had to remove when I installed the Mustang seat. Wasn't sure, So I put the 2 screws back in. Keeps dirt and rust out of the threads anyway.
