Ya, simple for those who have done this before.
Scary for me. ; -). But I'm having fun.
Just back from a sunny ride. Sorry all you people in the East...
This blast just needs to be riden. Only 1800 kms on it.

Now with that headlight. And even the other one you had. Will it be ok to use the Tridon EP-36 Flasher, I bought that.
Or do you need the Kisan SM-1 Signalminder, I had been reading about in old posts.
I don't want any miss-firings or sparks ; -)).

Those little droplets look like water not gas, probably from condensation

I've looked it up (Harley actually sells them!!), but it seems vague in the description: is it a full LED headlight, with all the super brightness that comes with it or are just the side lights
LED?

LOL - the Harley version at 50 bucks less is a poorly made copy - really - looked it up. The EP-36 flasher works fine with it - the low light is the high powered LED, the hi light is a 55 watt HID, and the turn signal LEDs are super large/bright LEDS - best gift I've ever been given for the bike, and will probably make me keep this headlight set up for a while, even though it is heavier than what I would usually run.

HD indicates it's made by the same company. If it was a full LED headlight it would have been a bargain at HD's or Primo's price! Still a top of the line option though.

I saw the back of the HD light - the difference is in the protection of the wiring in the back - The Rivera unit has coating and covers on all the connections - no worry of accidental shorts there. The HD unit has none - stuff could go dodgy quick - some liquid rubber could help a lot, and there is no color insulating paint on the back of the lights shell either - making it an inferior copy. You knew there had to be a reason the HD one was less, when HD likes to charge more - lol

"Those little droplets look like water not gas, probably from condensation"

When you say that. It is not a issue?
It is still cold here. 40's F'. And after the little gas smell thing. And just tapping the Carb. Blast has run everyday a few kms. Perfect starts, no weird sounds. Seems smooth.

Just waiting for a sweet package from Dan 'thumpe'.
The Full intake Kit. Jetting, Idle screws. Carb bolts, hiem stabilizer, It is going to be a fun March.

Thanks all, for the info.
Still like your headlight EZ. After Dan's order. It will be the Superbrace or headlight not sure. But one thing at a time ; -)}

It entails a bit of both - sometimes - sometimes not. But it is always the deviation from the norm - lol

Washed the bike and did some detailing - the rear wheel is finally starting to look decent.
