I don't see why you couldn't use a set of ghost brackets (or whatever they are called) to hook some ammo cans on to. Seems like those are pretty much made for oddball saddlebags.

The click lock Cs4 bags (formerly K-Drive) are great. I had them on my Rocket. I just ordered a pair of Cs 33i (50 L) and will mount them to my T-Bird with Easy Brsckets. The model for the T-Bird which mounts on their brackets is only 41 L. You can order these bags without the click lock hardware or mounting brackets directly from Belgium, possibly OZ and NZ also. $350 U.S. including shipping to the U.S.

I was wondering if some of the windshields for the HD Fat Bob would fit on the Storm.

How about grips and other random parts like that? I think someone mentioned Star grips fit? I think someone said the VistaCruise throttle lock for the Rocket works? Would be pretty cool to start compiling a good list of aftermarket goods that fit or can be easily adapted.

Found this posted May 19, 2013, by Stratofaster. He is using a rear tire size: 200/55R17 made by Avon, called the "Cobra". He says it may cut the speedometer error in half on the TBird. He did not mention any problems using this tire or tire size.

Oil sump drain plug & washer size

From Capt Ted, July 31, 2013:
I would for sure get a brand new crush washer as it bites having the sump plug leak. It's a 14mm size and you can get them at Auto Zone, Pep Boys, etc. I had my original sump plug get a small crack and leak. The replacement plug was 14mm x 1.5 thread. I had to hunt around for a magnetic flush mount one.

Raised Oil Filler Cap & Dipstick

Available at:
http://www.fasteddysports.com/?page_id=3&category=536

It is a raised oil cap with a dipstick. The add says:
"This is a two piece; base and oil cap (with stainless steel dipstick) made of polished or black anodized billet aluminum. The base section secures to the crank case so that the cap/dipstick portion is raised above this area where debris and dirt collect preventing the risk of debris from falling into the crank case when you check or add your oil. "

It costs $50. Since it has a base cylinder that screws into your engine once, it would never have to come out (unless for some reason you wanted it to). Then that base cylinder's upper threads becomes the new female threads for the new dipstick with its male threads.

I bought one for my 2010 TBird, and it worked for me.
