Just put the OEM spoiler on my Candy red and think it looks great. Really think Honda should have installed them at the factory but that's another story. I have also changed out my factory front indicator lenses for smoked ones, added quite a few other "add ons" but was wondering what other 2012 owners have done to theirs? What do you dislike and intend to change? I definitely now want some nicer lenses on the back that are not so RED!

I also have a Candy Red level 3 ABS. :thumbup:

I ordered the Spoiler, fog lights and the 12 volt accy socket for the pocket. Have to wait 5 days for it..:cry:

I also ordered the wing rider trunk support system to help with the rubbing of the trunk lid on the trunk opening. Now its a waiting game untill it all gets here so I can install it all...:cool:

I also have the Red Level 3 .... added the spoiler and the smoke turn signals to the front.

The spoiler definitely squares off the trunk to match the bottom rear better.

I am not sure about the smoke signals though. They are not near as bright as the amber stock ones. At different angles they have different levels of brightness, some angles pretty weak. ---- see picture below

Put on highway pegs.

Going to do the radio knob keys for the gas door and center storage door, cig lighter in trunk and left pocket, and set the gps so it operates while underway ..... and that is pretty much it. I want to keep this one simple and clean.

Here is picture of smoke lens .... left is OEM and right is Smoke EDIT - AFTER BLOWING THIS PICTURE UP FROM MY PHONE I THINK I AM GOING TO CHANGE THEM BACK .... MAYBE GET THE CLEAR ONES. ANYONE WANT THESE I'LL SHIP TO YOU FOR $25

Yes...I agree that the clear lenses look a lot better than the stock. Have to ask though, where did you order them?

Hey English-Greg

I got the clear trunk lights from Direct Line Parts.

The lights are Big Bike Parts, Part No. 52-736L.

Takes about 30 Minutes to put them in.

The clears look pretty good. The looks of the 2012 are growing on me....
