Hey guys
I put new kuryakyn smoked bezels/ lens and bulbs on my Fury.
The heat shields for the new bezels rattle so loud its disturbing I dont want this noise it takes away from the ride and I'm hot that once again another add-on part has a problem!!.

Did I mess up with the washer on the inside of turn signal housing or Has anyone else been having this problem????

I think its a Kuryakyn problem so I need feed back on there add-on stuff, if its PRICED HIGH END it should be all high end components and fit perfect.
80.00 bucks for caps of plastic chrome and some glass bezels!!!
If I could have held them before purchase I would have seen the quality!!

Anyone work at Kuryakyn? Im not impressed with the three people I have spoken with and furthermore I get a sense that they feel I'm bothering them!!!
I will look for other aftermarket makers from now on!!!!!


Thanks all!!!:cool:

They do that if you do not install the heat shield, lens, and bezel as one piece. I had one do it, so I took it apart and re-installed it.

Im not alone!

Chucklh what did you use to shim the heat shields?

I was thinking small strips of electric tape on edge of heat shields..

Tech support at K said that they have never had any problems but I tried to install as one unit and heat shield kept falling inward and out of bezel cup...

Still I am not alone and this is a manufacturer thing a really simple fix/ a retainer clip or rubber/foam ring inside..

Thanks

Did you take the rubber ring/seal thing out of the stock housing to use with the Kury signals?

Yes, the quad ring seal is still there, no matter how I put them together it rattled, I cut 4 pieces Garloc .020 gasket material I had and it worked fine.

On mine, I used a little electrical tape to hold it all together during assembly.

Hmmm... I'm not sure what the problem is here. I installed mine and they are fine.
I have some on my VTX as well and no problems there either.

Had to get clear electric tape and wrap heat sheilds to make them rattle free.
I was careful not to pinch o ring seals and the heat sheilds just dont seat up firmly or snug inside of the bezel/cap. NOW THEY DO! AND IM DONE WITH THIS UPGRADE!

Im still gonna call KURYAKYN and try and get some relief monetary that is!

Thanks to all responding!

Not sure which heat shields you're referring to; the oem heatshields do not go back on the bike after removal. Mine assembled easily when I put them on a month ago; no noise at the time or since. For assembly, I:

1. made sure the rubber o-ring (or gasket, grommet, whatever it is :) was seated against the little wall in the oem housing before seating the kury bezel; just used a screwdriver tip to gently press it against the wall so that it was flat all the way round,
2. put the threaded metal sleeve over the kury bezel tab at bottom and ran a screw up thru it to make sure it was seated properly,
3. set the lower end of the kury bezel first approximately in place and then pushed the top in and with a slight downard pressure the bezel *snapped* into place with a nice ... um ... snappy? feel :)

I've been very happy with them; for a fairly simple change they make a dramatic improvement in the looks of the bike over the stock orange lolllipopper signals.

I agree with you STONEWHEEL it was a simple change and it makes the bike looked more finished!! Cobra pipes on your Fury look great!!
About this upgrade post:
My only problem is me. I always have a issue with my darn up grades.Its funny because the kid at the Honda shop placed my orde and argued with me that I need 2 circuit bulbs for the rear signals. I told him single and he says double. I was right the bottom of bulbs and bases are 1-2 contact anyway!!! I paid extra for doubles plus had to call Kuryakyn for the right single circuit red bulbs and they rep told me that there is now Amber/yellow single circuit bulb which I CANT BELIEVE, but any way that cost me 23.00! Thats what Ive been thru with this one!! Well Im all better now and the problems are behind me!! Have a great wekend all!! :)

Good to know

They didn't have the single circuit amber for the rear when I ordered mine; good to know they now do. I actually don't mind the red, but am thinkin' maybe the amber is a little safer; it's kinda what people are lookin' for when they see turn signals; might have to order up a set.

Got them (for the front) and installed them today. No problems at all. No rattles. I did everything pretty mush the same as Stonewheel. I decided to leave OEM clear bulbs in because I don't think the color amber goes well with Fury Blue. I like the way it looks.
