2009 & Newer Fairing Support/Bracket

Does anyone know if it is true that the 2009 & newer fairing support/brackets have been modified from the MOCO to sit the Shark Nose lower on the frame? If this is true, can I purchase the newer support/brackets and bolt them right up to my 2003 frame? I want to lower the nose @ 2 inches on my scooter. Thanks in advance for any info that will help me reach my goal. Jimmy

2010 was the year it changed, both the frame mounting bracket and the two down brackets to the engine guard,

The bracket and supports will work on your bike, but you will have to switch them both. Just buying the supports won't work, and likewise with just the bracket.






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

The newer parts will not lower the fairing. They will RAISE the rear a bit and angle the fairing a couple of degrees.

They allow you to put vented lowers on without modifying the caps.

So what you and chainsaw are saying is if I change out the brackets on my 06 to the brackets of an 10 I can run the vented lower fairings? Are you talking about lower fairings that come on the FLHTC.
Thanks

Yes, the Vented lowers stock on Ultras and used as Add Ons for other Bat Wing models can be used when the Fairing Mounts from 2010-later Road Glide is used on any 2009-earlier Road Glide. But you must replace all three mounts. The main Fairing mount and two supports.

I just finished up this mod on my 06. The fairing mount is on but I still have to put the inner and outer fairing back on. My HD color matched vented lowers will not be here for a few more weeks. It was just under a 100 bucks for the supports and mounting bracket as long as you don’t buy new "c clamps" for the supports. That’s another 50 bucks. It took about two and a half months to get the left fairing support in due to back order.
