2nd thread I started, love the site and the help everyone offers. I'm amazed how much more *we* collectively know over the dealerships - several times when talking to the service dept, they have no idea what I'm talking about.
-I need a new windshield. I don't want to open an opinionated argument (like the best rain tire for K12LT) - lets try this: if you have a replacement (non OEM) shield you really like, just mention it and where from and how much you got it for. Also, does your aftermarket shield fog as easily as the OEM? I prefer the tall one since most riding is on the expressway/coutry highways. Dealer says $300 - that's GOTTA BE too much for OEM equipment! The problem is the previous owner must've washed with chemicals and now it's foggy at night and in the rain, so I have to have it down 1/2 of my riding time unless I want to ride blind.
-I want to install XM - I'm a subsriber, but my car has sat in the garage 85% of the time since I bought my LT in Spring. The problem I foresee is where to put the magnetic antenna. Has anyone installed the car kit (XM unit cradle, fm modulator, and antenna) on the LT and if so, do you have recommendations?
-some misc stuff: who has freeway pegs and where did you get them from? how much? Dealer says $350 - I think that's too much. Also, passenger armrests? I've seen one for $350 - again, I'd rather find something slightly less expensive.
If anyone is willing to sell their pegs/armrests, let me know!
-I also need tires, but *apparently* the Metzlers sound to be the best "overall" tire, although my own experience in the rain makes me feel slightly uneasy.
-Does anyone use the I-Pass (tollway) on their bike? Illinois said you cant mount it to the bike, just hold it up in the air - does this work?
