Rear Fender Facia for 09

I have ordered the rear fender facia for my '09 Roadglide. I have 2 questions:

1-Is there a plug on the wiring harness that I can plug it in and if so, where is it? (I was thinking that, just maybe, the wiring harness for the roadglide and street glide were the same and all I have to do is find the plug.)

2-Do I have to take the tire off to install the piece?

Thanks in advance,
gzr

The plug where the wiring harness attaches is under the left side cover.

You do not have to take your wheel off to install the facia at least not on a 2010 you can take the whole fender off without taking the wheel off

Ok...the rear fender facia is installed. It looks sweet. The only thing I'm missing is the corrrect plug to power it up (more on that later). The installation was easier than I thought it might be. That is if you don't mind drilling 3 holes in each side of your rear fender . For some reason, drilling into a perfectly good fender (or any other part) makes me just a little nervous.

Harley 75, thanks for the advice about plug location and the fact that I don't have to remove the fender. Your info. was spot on. The plug is under the left side cover. The only problem is that the plug didn't match the jumper wire that powers the light. It seems that the wiring harness for the '09 Street Glide and the Ultra is the same. The '09 Roadglide harness, however, is different. The jumper wire (HD part # 68828-10) has a 6 pin plug. The plug on my bike under the side cover is a 3 pin plug. I looked extensively under both side covers and the seat and couldn't find a plug to match the jumper. After about an hour and half of fruitless research with the parts dept. and service dept. at the dealer, I decided to order a 3 pin plug and wire it into to jumper. I could have just hard-wired it in either under the side cover or at the tail light but I opted to have a plug. I talked with another RG owner who had to do the same thing with his '09. The facia light has an inlet and outlet plug. I'm not sure what the outlet is for. I filled it with silicone to keep the dirt and moisture out. I plugged the jumper into the inlet side of the facia light and cut the 6 pin plug off the other end, stripped the wires back and stuck them into the 3 pin plug to prove the light. It worked fine. It is a run/stop light. I'm just waiting on the 3 pin plug to complete the installation.

Joke, I will post some pics once I get it powered up. Here is a breakdown of cost per part:
1-Rear Fender Facia (59739-09CYS) $97.99 (Part # will vary by color)
1-Tribar Fender Tip Light (67774-10) $129.99
1-Jumper, RR Lighting (68828-10) $27.99
2-Stud Plate Assy (59818-09) $9.99 X 2 = $19.98
6-Flange Nuts (7499) $1.99 X 6 = $11.94
2-Torx Screws (2995) $1.99 X 2 = $3.98 (These attach the light to the facia)
1-Grommet, Rear Fender (59778-06) $1.99
1-Plug, Rear Fender (59749-06) $1.99
Total: $295.85 + tax

Tourglide, see my comments above about a power source. As I said above, it can be hard-wired into the tail light but I don't think there is a plug there. I never took my tail light apart to look for one though, so I'm not positive on that.

Thanks again for the help and comments,
gzrglide09

gzrglide09-I have the same setup, but have not figured out which wires to plug into the three plug receptacle under the left-side cover. 1) Which wires did you use?

2) Did you order the the three-pin plug from HD?

Thanks,

I peeled back to cover of the 3 plug wire under the side cover and matched up the colors.

I got the dealership to order the 3 pin plug for me.

I was away a while. If I remember correctly there is a open recepticle inside the tail light housing where the fender tip light on the bikes so outfitted plugs in. take off the lens and look in there. Might save you some time. It is where the harness from the front plugs into the tail light.

GZR, did you ever take any photos of your completed Facia? I would like to see how it turned out.
