Difference between CVO and non CVO windshield fitment

So after many post that are saying there's no difference between a CVO and non CVO windshield I'd figure I'd take a measurement.

Let me toss out a little background on the reason I'm posting this. I have a 2011 CVO RGU. I tried a KW 13" Flare on this bike and it didn't fit for crap. Had to deform the windshield in order for it to fit. Madstad says the base is different. Long Ride Shields says there's a difference. Now I don't know if the difference is in the angle of the fairing or the spacing of the holes. I also don't know if it has anything to do with mine being an RGU vs an RGC.

Just trying to figure this all out.

Here's what I measured from the centers of the screws on mine. The * below indicates the screws.

Lets see some other measurements from your bike. Also post up the year and if it's an Ultra or Custom.


*--- 8"---*---7 3/8"---*---7 3/8"---*---8"---*

there really shouldn't be any difference in the measurements. the outer fairing is the same part number, 58733-98B. same outer fairing in use since 98.....

i checked the part number on 3 different FLTs: a 2013 CVO, a 2010 FLTRX, and a 2004 FLTRI. same part number for the fairing on all three models.

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

Can you check it for a FLTRUSE?

I'm still baffled why the KW wouldn't fit right. Holes were nowhere close. I sold it to a guy in TX and he had no problems with it at all.

I had a 2010 FLTRX and swapped many shields with my friends 2011 FLTRUSE without any issues. I even used his stock shield for a while. Some have had issues but I don't think MOCO made any differences on purpose.

Guys, I'm just looking for some measurements so this can be put to rest.

Looking at Madstad's site there's a note on the bottom of it concerning CVO windshields:
http://www.madstad.com/s.nl/sc.7/category.2136/.f

"
NOTE: If you have a 2010 or up Screaming Eagle (CVO) Road Glide, please indicate this in the "Bike year, make, model" field. Your fairing is a little larger than the standard Glide fairing and the MadStad adapter plate is different."

Ok sorry for my little rant then. I would say that you would get the best results by getting some riding buds near you to come over and get 1 person to do all the measurements without the shields on. If the shields are different thickness's it would yield different measurements.

OBB, I went and measured my 12 RGU, I get the same sizes you posted above. I also measured both of my shields, my Harley aftermarket shield matches perfect and is easy to install, I also have a Clearview and that one the ends are only 7 7/8" and it is hard to get on right, but will just fit. note there website also comments on certain year CVO's being different, hope this helps.

No reason to say you're sorry. I respect and believe what you said about other shields fitting. I'm just trying to figure why the hell that KW wouldn't fit and three manufacturers are saying there's a difference. Would just like to know what the difference is. I know that KW did not have slotted holes in it and the Mako I'm running now does. I'm sure that helps.

Ok, that's 2 RGUs with the same measurements. Still like to see some RGC owners pipe in. I like that CW you have on yours too. That vent in it looks pretty damn effective.
