American Hard Bag 14PFK

This article covers installation notes for the 14PFK horn kit for ‘14 & up Road and Street Glides.

Left & Right
Notice that the horn adapters are in bags labeled “left” and “right”, The adapters are not symmetrical.

Chrome Gauge Ring
Remove the chrome ring from the front of the gauges and locate it on the front of the horn adapters. The three clips on the outside edge of the chrome rings do not need to clip into the horn adapter. Use a small amount of blue thread locker on the locking ring and bezel so that they do not loosen with vibration. Use the factory gauge hardware to bolt the horn adapter in place. Be careful not to scratch the chrome ring when tightening down on the locking ring.

Wire the Horns
If you are using Hertz horns or a copycat version Hertz horns you will need to put the yellow capacitor that came with your horns in line with the positive side of the horn. Diamond Audio horns are the exception to the rule. The Diamond Audio horns come with a two component crossover that is already wired for you.
Solder a 5” section of speaker wire to one end of the capacitor that came with your horns. Solder a section of speaker wire long enough to reach your amplifier to the other side of the capacitor. Heat shrink over both solder joints, then cross the wires over the capacitor in opposite directions and heat shrink over the entire assembly. This will take all of the strain off of the wire leads coming out of the capacitor and will keep the wire leads from breaking off of the capacitor due to vibration.

Turn Signal Indicators
The turn signal indicators are located inside the small gauges. To relocate the turn signal indicator function to elsewhere on the fairing an optional LED kit is
available. Find a suitable location on the fairing and drill a hole the same size as the LED and press the LED in from behind. Select a drill bit that will make a
hole large enough for the LED to protrude through the plastic but small enough so that the LED is a tight press fit. Use a scrap piece of material to test on
before drilling the fairing.

Road Glide
On a road glide a great place for the LEDs is inside of the center air vent on each side. If you remove the air vent panel and flip it upside down, there are two small circle shapes on the underside towards the front on each side. These are marks left from the moulding process. The center of these circles is an ideal location for the LEDs. 

Street Glide
A good location for the turn signal indicators on the Street Glide fairing is on the top of the fairing below the windshield. The locations for the LEDs explained here are just suggestions. There are several good options. Use the location that works best for you.

Wiring the Turn Signal Indicators

The optional LEDs are pre-wired for you with 2 pin quick disconnects. The LEDs are simply wired into the front facing side markers of the bike. On the On the Road Glide these can be found under the vent panel. On a Street Glide they can be found down low near the side markers inside the fairing. The factory side marker harnesses are made up of 4 circuits. You will need to splice into
two of them.

Left Side Harness
● Pin 1 = Blue
● Pin 2 = Blue/Pink. This wire should be connected to the positive lead on the
left indicator LED(White)
● Pin 3 = Black. This wire should be connected to the negative lead on the left
indicator LED (Green)
● Pin 4 = Blue/Black

Right Side Harness
● Pin 1 = Blue
● Pin 2 = Blue/Orange. This wire should be connected to the positive lead on
the right indicator LED (Red)
● Pin 3 = Black. This wire should be connected to the negative lead on the right
indicator LED (Black)
● Pin 4 = Blue/Black

Voltage Gauge
The optional voltage gauge simply wires into the existing cigarette lighter port harness and takes place of the cigarette lighter port in the fairing. We provide a harness with the voltage gauge that makes it plug and play. Be sure to pay
attention to the polarity of this two wire connection so that you do not get it backwards! The center of the cigarette lighter port is positive and the outside is negative. The hole size required for the new voltage gauge is slightly larger than the existing hole in the fairing. A very small amount of material needs to be taken out to enlarge the mounting hole. The factory cigarette lighter port will still fit the enlarged hole in case you ever want to go back to the stock configuration.

Fuel Gauge
The function of fuel gauge can be accessed through the factory speedometer. Simply tap the mode switch located above the clutch lever until the range function comes up on the speedometer. The fuel range feature is much more accurate than the fuel gauge that you removed. Once the range feature has been selected, the speedometer will display range without the need for using the mode switch to select it. Even after a restart.

Computer Codes
No hard codes (no check engine light) will be generated by disconnecting the two small gauges. The bikes body control module will be aware that the gauges are not connected. So if you check your trouble codes you will find two soft codes that indicate that the gauges have been disconnected. One for each gauge. This has no functional consequences on the the bikes operation.
