So what do ya think. Cool Idea I guess, I like the RG look better than other fairings but not sure you can pull it off on a softail? The pic looks like a streetbob and just don't look 100% right to me. :-/

I kind of like it... It's just another alternative to the detachable batwing fairing... The Bike pictured above the streetbob is a softail and I think it looks pretty cool...

Good find! I have been looking at alternatives to eventually buying a touring model. With my AirHawk seat cushion, some kind of fairing and adding saddlebags I think it would work. When I rode to Spokane from Denver and back my butt never was an issue. The head wind was another issue.

Same here. I'm not a big fan of leather saddle bags on my bike and I would only go with hard. But, always wondered, by the time you add the fairing, hard bags, and everything in between with all the little mods I'm sure are required for this, would it be just as cheap to buy a bagger?

Most likely the north side of $4k for fairing, hard bags, paint, etc. You'd need to more than double that for a good used bike IMO. Then with the used bike you would start all over with the custominzing. If only I could win the fucking lottery...........

I do not know how well the softtail would ride with the extra weight of a fairing and hard bags ...etc.

I think that the design is best for 200 lbs or less weight added to bike.


I think that were in the touring market the Goldwing or Victory might be better I beleive that in the heavy cruiser bikes the Dyna's and softtail HD's have no real competition.

I think that refers to the Dual Exhaust that they're advertising not the fairing... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif) (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Thom904 here, Can someone help me with a step by step on how to remove the outer fairing on a 2009 RoadGlide. I removed the 4 bolts at the turn signals, all the fairing screws, the wind screen screws, pulled out the ign. lock and even removed the plastic lens which seals the front. I shook the thing but it has fooled me. Need help ,,,,,Thanks.....

There's a few who have RGs here who have removed theirs. Maybe one will see your post and tell you the magic maneuver required to get the thing to come off.

Yer well on your way to removing the INNER fairing! Are you talking about the outer fairing?

If so,

You do not need to remove the windshield or ignition sw. or instrument nacelle. I have an '01 and an '11 so there may be something different about an '09. Not sure.

You've said you removed the 4 acorn nuts? Two on each side? There would be a flat plate on the inside of the inner fairing with the two screws attached. One longer than the other. Outside there is probably a flat chromed piece that spans between the two screws and acts like a washer, so to speak. These go through the inner and outer fairing.

Before you get too carried away put a thick, I mean thick towel or some such on your front fender. When you pull this thing off it's going to be kind of top heavy. Awkward to handle. Nuttin' serious at all but it could surprise you.

Sitting on the bike you'll see three torx on each side. I think they're 27s but don't quote me. My manual is in my shop and the wind chill is below zero. Ain't going over! Anyway, remove the torx. I usually take the bottom first, then the top, then the middle. I believe it's the middle one that is longer than the others. Don't mix 'em up! You say you removed these?

Always better the have a helper. When you remove those torx (but you say you did) the fairing could fall off. If not, great. Give a nudge with the heel of your hand to free it from the "tabs" that are used to align it and keep it straight. Should fall off. Rest it on your thighs and unplug the headlight wiring harness. Yer done.

When you put it back on I like to have the headlight assembly removed. There are two hook above the radio. You need to hang the fairing on those hooks while aligning all the tabs. While holding it in place start the torx or the acorn nut assembly on the side. Be sure the plug your headlight assembly in again and snap it into place.

Putting the fairing back on is like peeling an apple in your pocket. Always pissed me off. Some guys can do it in a heartbeat. Me? Not patient enough, I'm sure. Takes me an hour to do by myself. Truth be told, maybe two!!

With a helper... about 10 minutes IF you take a couple tugs on a beer.

Hey Thom...I saw your PM to me about this. I have not yet had occasion to tear into my fairing. So far everything in there is working the way it is supposed to. I had lots of experience with batwing fairings but none yet with the roadglide.

I was going to direct you to FGOWI here who's already got you covered, or Big Ty who has also torn into his fairing countless times and seems to have it down.
