Mount Rushmore air filter cover

Does anyone know if the new covers that look like they're forward facing got on my 2012 roadglide to replace the stock oval one?

Not familiar with the Mount Rushmore A/C. Does it have the faces of 4 Presidents on it? The HD Rushmore A/C will fit though. 😜

LMAO. I was reading that thinking WTF is he talking about?

Do I need any extra parts OT do I just unbolt and bolt the new one on?

I looked on YouTube and no luck on a video

Just wanted to give you some shit. 😉

If you already have the stage 1 filter I believe it's the same filter as the 14' & up and the cover just bolts onto the filter like the football cover. If not you will have to change backplate and all.

Ah that's what I was looking for. I still have the oval. Local shop said I was good to just swap. I'll tear mine apart tomorrow and look.

And that leads to the next question. If I switch to New style and have slip on pipes will I need a tune?

So your saying that you have the stock A/C with the plastic backing? If that is the case you will need more to swap than just the cover. If you go to stage 1 filter (getting rid of the plastic backing) you will have to re-tune but it will be well worth it. The bike will breath better and you will get better performance.

I'm all stock. Was just looking for the newer look. I don't like the big air cleaners. They dig into my leg.

You can buy the whole thing off a Rushmore bike. (Cover & backing plate ) . It's a direct fit and you will not need to retune if you don't want to. If you added the hi-flow backing plate and air cleaner ,you'll need to add a fuel enrichener device / retune.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I'm sure there are plenty of stock take off air cleaners from the new newer bikes that you should be able to find everything you need fairly cheap. That is one of the first things most people upgrade.

Most Rushmore air cleaner take offs can be found for about $50 complete. I am putting the newer style cover on my 12 with a ness big sucker using some parts from the se kit for about $20 using these parts.
