19" wrap fender

Has anyone used a wrap style front fender on a RoadGlide with the lowers installed. I have been looking at a 19" FBI fender for my 11 RGU but at the cost involved, I would like to see one installed with the lowers in place before I pi$$ away the rent money. Any pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have an 18" FBI Wrapper on my 09. Running 18" Agitator front. The rolling diameter of a 19" shouldn't be much different. Fender was spaced off of the tire with 3/8" fuel line.

A 19" wrap fender is not needed in all situations. It depends on the tire used on the agitator or any other 19" rim. If you use the dunlop 19" tire you can actually use a 18" wrap fender with comfort. This is because the aspect of the tire is the same as most 18" tires. Did allot of investigation on this. Some of us who have gotten the 19" harley rims and used the 19" dunlop have been using Klock werk's 18" wrap fenders with no issues. Look at my albums (newer pictures) and you will see a 19" agitator with a 18" Klockwerks wrap fender and a 19" dunlop tire. No issues at all.

I looked at the 19" FBI fender and their 18", but couldn't get over the price at the time. If I remember correctly the 19" was about $100 more than the 18" which would have fit on my rims. This was when the 19" wrap fender first came out. I hope the difference is not still there as it made NO sense to me.
