New narrower transmission / primary cover on Ultra Low

Has anyone heard of a different, narrower transmission or primary cover on the 2015 Ultra Low ?

I heard it would fit the 2013 RGU 103 6-speed and offer more left leg room against the transmission for us shorter riders .

yes, the low profile cover. comes in chrome or black. it is about 1.5'' thinner than the standard cover. if you get one, two things you need to know.

first, you use the same amount of fluid. and second, you will need a new derby cover too as the standard derby covers do not fit.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Thanks for the tip on the derby cover. I had heard the fluids were the same which led me to asking why there was a narrower cover . Apparently fluid capacities are the same, and there are no heat concerns _'it's just narrower ...

Just another piece for us to swap out

Thanks

Steve

So, I received my "narrower primary cover" and its not really that much narrower !

the box has the proper 25700385 part number on it, the part in the box has 25700387 molded into it on inside .

The part is barely a 1/2 inch or 1cm narrow if am measuring it properly

going back to the dealer with it tomorrow to investigate - thats a lot $$ for a 1/2 "

The narrow-profile outer primary cover is installed, it does make a difference

On my list of 'things to do' on my 2013 also.....whenever I stop I only put my left foot down and if the road is slanted a bit my leg is right up against the burning hot bike.....an extra inch or so would make a difference.

2018 Road Glide Special. 12 inch 'Freedom' shield, Mustang seat, Harley tour pak, Advanblack lowers, Motolights, rear crash bars, Headset plug-in, Ciro footpegs, Black headlamp trim, mesh grill covers, Flash2open garage transmitter, buncha other stuff!!
