Cover

This is the one I use, got it from Sidecar Cycles. The first one I bought from Hawg-Wired but theres doesn't fit the Road Glide, sent it back as it was too big and only fit the batwings.

pretty sure it fits

you may have to backspace mod your radio cradle or remove the bezel

I have a sony - but it works with alpine, etc

the billet bezel fell off my radio, somewhere between florida and louisiana

when I got home I installed the biketronics plastic face to clean up the gap.

splash cover fits much better without the bezel

since the bezel is a intricate part of the hawg wired system, maybe they don't recommend it

if I replace mine, I will cut it in half according to depth ways and do the backspace mod 3/8"

the further back the splash guard goes the better, had that fall off also,
luckily was going slow and grabbed it

my note would be the media center seems good, way overpriced, I am hoping spring will bring some options when the new electronics come out.

I used the biketronics kit for the Sony so it's already been set back. When I talked to to Hawg-wired they agreed that it was not going to fit & send it back. The one from sidecar cycles is designed for the RG, they also make the cover that Hawg-Wired sells for the batwings. I'll put a picture up of the cover installed on it later.

the one I bought was from sidecar, for road glide

look almost the same - so I thought it was

if that's the case, my bad, I apologize for spreading bad info

sidecar told be the difference was the offset, but it's been a while since I
had that conversation with them

update: okay I check my fitment, I definitely need to modify the backspacing since the selector button sticks up further on sony

I guess I never noticed

my hawg wired cradle is the older model HUA470

The RG version should've came w/2 brackets to push back the radio cradle if you're going to use it w/the Hawg-Wired install kit.

I have all the parts, this was just something that got pushed back

built all those brackets, then added lids and re-did my mains.

TO GET THE ROAD GLIDE RAINCOVER, you have to go directly to Sidecar Cycles
according to HawgWired... looked like the same part to me, wtf

anyone I told otherwise in passing, I was wrong about the spec

SORRY

better to have egg on your face than a face that looks like an egg.

fyi - the new daisy chain models from hawg wired are supposed to be soon in the coming

a reasonably priced kick ass stereo for the roadglide would be nice.

The sidecar cycles cover only works with certain brackets? Hawg wired, Biketronics and that's it. Pricey but like the quick detach capability.
