INSTALLATION NOTES Clean the controller mounting area and the areas where the light pods will be mounted with soap and water before beginning the installation, and allow to dry thoroughly. Remove debris, dirt and grime from the vehicle areas to be highlighted. Ambient temperature should be at least 50 °F (10 °C) for proper adhesion of the light pods and controller box to vehicle surfaces. Light pods should not be located closer than 2.5 inches (63.5 mm) from exhaust pipes or mufflers, and must have 1.5 inches (38.1 mm) clearance from engine cylinders and heads. Do not install light pods with the light source facing directly away from the vehicle. Installation should be done in a way that allows the light to be seen indirectly by reflecting from chrome or painted surfaces of the vehicle. Prepare the Motorcycle To prevent accidental vehicle start-up, which could cause death or serious injury, disconnect battery cables (negative (-) cable first) before proceeding. (00307a) Disconnect negative (-) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00049a) 1. Refer to the owner’s manual and follow the instructions given to disconnect the battery cables, negative (-) cable first. NOTE For 2004 and later XL (Sportster®) models, the negative battery cable is most easily disconnected at the engine crankcase . Locate and Install the Controller NOTE Do not mount the controller box in a location where vehicle suspension travel could result in contact with the ON/OFF switch or dimmer control. Damage to the controller box will occur. 2. See Figure 2. Locate the controller box (10) on a flat surface that will allow the red (+) and black (-) leads to reach the battery terminals and the rider to access the controls (with the vehicle parked) and, if necessary, the in-line fuse holder (A). a. Test-fit the controller box to the selected surface before installation. Do not remove the adhesive backing until ready to attach the controller box. b. Clean the controller box mounting area with one of the included alcohol swabs. Allow to dry thoroughly. c. Remove the liner from the adhesive backing of the controller box. Carefully position the controller box to the surface, and press firmly into place. Hold the controller box in position with steady pressure for about one minute. Connect the Battery Cables NOTE Verify that the ignition/light key switch is in the OFF position before attaching the battery cables. 3. Verify that the ignition/key switch is turned to the OFF position. Apply a light coat of Harley-Davidson electrical contact lubricant (part number 99861-02), petroleum jelly or corrosion retardant material to the battery terminals. Connect positive (+) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00068a) 4. Refer to the owner’s manual and follow the instructions given to install first the vehicle’s positive (+) battery cable then the red (+) light pod controller lead ring terminal to the positive (+) battery terminal. Tighten to owner’s manual specifications. Install first the vehicle’s negative (-) battery cable then the black (-) light pod controller lead ring terminal to the negative (-) battery terminal. Tighten to owner’s manual specifications. Arrange the Electra-Glo Light Pods NOTES Electra-Glo light pods (1) can be installed in a variety of locations. They are best installed on a flat surface to provide indirect lighting illuminating mechanical features, vehicle finish or for ground effects. Refer to the notes at the beginning of the Installation section. 5. Select the area or lines of the motorcycle to highlight, and suitable locations for each light pod. DO NOT permanently affix the light pods at this time. Lightly tape the pods in place temporarily until the desired visual effect is achieved Verify clearance from movement of rubber mounted engine or other moving parts, heat sources, or chafe points
