Separate purchase of cable straps.
NOTE
The passenger Spectra Glo footboard pads may be used independently or with the rider footboard pads.
These Spectra Glo lighted footboards are designed and intended for display use only. Some local regulations prohibit using colored or indirect lighting during vehicle operation on public streets. Check local regulations before installation.
The Spectra Glo RGB kits can be connected together in a variety of ways. Some examples are daisy chain, Tee, and Y. An open end of a harness or light POD should always have a end cap installed.
WARNING
Rider and passenger safety depend upon the correct installation of this kit. If the procedure is not within your capabilities or you do not have the correct tools, have a Harley-Davidson dealer perform the installation. Improper installation of this kit could result in death or serious injury. (00308b)
NOTE
This instruction sheet refers to service manual information. A service manual for this year/model motorcycle is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
Electrical Overload
WARNING
When installing any electrical accessory, be certain not to exceed the maximum amperage rating of the fuse or circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit being modified. Exceeding the maximum amperage can lead to electrical failures, which could result in death or serious injury. (00310a)
NOTICE
It is possible to overload your vehicle's charging system by adding too many electrical accessories. If the combined electrical accessories operating at any one time consume more electrical current than the vehicle's charging system can produce, the electrical consumption can discharge the battery and cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for advice about the amount of current consumed by additional electrical accessories or for necessary wiring changes. (00211c)

RIDER AND PASSENGER FOOTBOARD PAD REMOVAL
1. If Controller Kit (part number 68000218) is not installed, install now following the instructions in that kit.
2. See service manual. Remove the main fuse.
3. See service manual. Remove seat. Retain all seat mounting hardware.
4. Apply liquid dish-washing soap to the rubber isolator beads protruding through the bottom of the footboard. With the footboard in the "up" position, use a screwdriver to work the rubber beads out through the top of the footboard.
5. Repeat previous step on other side of vehicle.
RIDER FOOTBOARD PAD INSTALLATION
NOTE
The footboard pads are side-specific. The footboard pads install so that the Bar & Shield logo is toward the front of the vehicle.
1. Apply liquid dish-washing soap to the rubber isolator beads on the new footboard pad.
2. From the top, feed the footboard pad wiring harness through the mounting hole closest to the frame.
3. With the footboard in the "up" position, place the pad into position on the footboard. Hold it firmly in place.
4. From the underside of the footboard, use pliers to pull each rubber isolator bead into its mating hole in the footboard. Pull it until the thick collar protrudes through the floorboard.
5. Allow sufficient wire length to allow the footboards to pivot freely through their entire range. Use cable straps to tie the footboard pad harnesses to the back sides of the forward footboard mounting brackets.
6. Repeat previous installation steps on the other side of the vehicle.
7.
NOTE
See Isheet J06266, Spectra Glo Controller and Remote FOB, for installing multiple RGB products.

SPECTRA GLO LOAD CALCULATION INFORMATION
The Spectra Glo system is limited to 3000 mA. Use the following table to determine the total current draw of the desired configuration. Calculate the total current dray by multiplying the number of kit(s) (each line) by the provided current draw. Sum all totals. The value should be less than or equal to 3000 mA. The following example describes how to calculate total system load.
