Question Removal of tour pac

Has anyone removed their tour pac from an ultra classic and replaced it with a luggage rack and removal backrest? What parts did you use and how did you relocate the radio antenna and cb antenna?

I think there is a kit from HD that has everything needed, including the antenna relocation parts. Not close to the catalog now, but check the parts look up in the HD parts section.

Thinking of doing this on my ultra with the detachable kit. Hoping the dealer has a bike there that had it done so I can get a idea of the looks when removed.

I just installed the Harley kit, (HD Detachable Tour Pak Mounting Rack Kit FLHTC 53303-07) on my Ultra and it works great. Really makes a difference in how the bike handles without the high weight of the Tour Pak back there. I spliced plugs in the running light and speaker wiring under the seat, just past the gas tank and installed hidden AM-FM, WB and CB antennas under the bat-wing fairing that work just as good as the "whips" so as not to have to re-do those when using the Pak. The intercom is rolled up and stowed under the seat but I rarely ever use it and that's where it stays unless needed. For me it's like having two different bikes. A "No Pak" city ride or, snap the Pak on for a long haul.

Had the HD setup installed as a part of the deal on my UC - I love it. Comes off easily but I need a little help puttin it back on as I can't see the 4 point when I'm landing the pak back on the bike.

I do take mine on and off frequently - love the look without it, love the GF not whining when I put it back on!

Yeah, I priced the TourPac for a 2010 Street Glide, brackets, paint, etc. Runs about $1,000 USD. (I think the online list is $999.95)

Told the dealer we need to rename the product The Harley-Davidson -- THD . . . "Ten Hundred Dollars."



Tell me more about weight distribution with the TourPac? I don't plan to haul ammo or free weights . . . mostly just clothing.
