What's the difficulty of the install. I see the tank panels are overlays but are the actual side panels new pieces? How easy is the access to the fuse block after the new side panels are installed?

To answer some questions about the bodykit. The kit is 4 pieces. The two new side covers install just like the oem cover with the pins in the rubber sockets. Still removable to service fuses etc.. The tank halves are installed by scuffing the stock tank with some 80 grit paper, and then gluing the panels to the tank with a body shop panel bond adhesive from fusor or 3m. You can then install our loprofile dash to cover the seam down the middle or you can use the stock dash. Panels are finished in gelcoat and are near paint ready. Hope this helps. Thanx

I know Camtech makes a seat that fits perfectly, not sure about others.

Camtech how do I fix the overlay when it comes into contact with the side panels? It rubs back and forth. Don't want to glass it or bondo. Really don't like it separated either. I like the contact look. No gap. But am afraid it will rub the paint off over time. Have any suggestions

As I recall, this particular step requires you to have the side panels installed while bonding the overlays to the tank. Need to use bonding adhesive that gives you some time to move things around. Some clear rubber bumpers on the side panel sockets during bonding will give you a symmetric (and necessary) gap. If something is rubbing glass to glass after the tank overlays are in place, you're screwed....

Installation requires attention to side panel gap spacing, levelness across the top, and symmetry of the overlays up against the front tank mounts. I'd suggest using flat wooden paint sticks to keep things lined up along the top and front. In hindsight, I would also think about embedding the tank sender/pump wiring and vent hose under the overlays. That will give you some options on the dash panel...

I installed the Camtech flare side body kit on my road king. Great quality kit and easy to install with just a little trimming I did have to trim my seat to fit

So the actual overlay doesnt come in contact over the entire tank? The only parts that do is the top of the overlay and the front....the side of the tank doesnt touch? Seems to me when you sit on the bike after the overlays are on the pressure of your legs will push down the piece that is close to the side covers and make contact then.
