Hidden Fairing Bracket Options

Good Morning,

Recently purchased my first HD RGS and loving it. Already dreaming of the customization possibilities. I really want to install new crash bars on it but the fairing brackets need to be removed. There are a lot of options and with different designs to choose from. The two that stand out are the Hell's Foundry Invisible fairing support kit and the PauleYaffe's Stealth fairing support bar. Is anyone familiar with both of these products and explain which design is better? Thanks for any feed back.

i have the Hell's foundry "invisible" on my "09 RG. i like it. makes the fairing stiffer, in my opinion, as it's now connected right to the frame. i'm sure both of those would be fine, it just comes down to aesthetics and if you want to take the front end off for a cleaner look with the yaffe. i'm currently having mine painted over the winter as i have my inner fairing color matched. that's as far as i'm gonna go for aesthetics.

I just did the Hells Foundry hidden faring brackets on my 09 FLTRSE3 so I could add lowers. It dies seem to make the faring quite a bit more solid &the look is much cleaner.

They all do their job and don't think you can go wrong with either of em. I have Dirty Bird's bracket on my 2012, works great 👍🏻

Wish I would have known about this one before I went with Hells Foundry, not that Iím unhappy with Hellís Foundryís product. Just could have saved a few $$$ for some other mods.

I had the hells foundry on my 2012 and then switched to the dirty bird when i raked the bike. Running hellís foundry on my 2017 also. The dirty bird was nice but you have to remove your inner fairing to put it on. It is A LOT of extra work to install it.

Dire wolf, All you did was install the hidden support and were able to add lowers? You didn't have to change the main fairing bracket to the 2010 part? Everything I have read says the main bracket has to be changed.
If this is the case, its game changer for me

2009 Road Glide. 16 in Vindikta Wild Cats. Aquatic AV, Stinger 700X4 to MMats PA 601, Audiopipe horns.
Ground Zero 7X10 in the lids w/ sspn.4 1000d, tuned with DD Audio DSI-2. S&S 106, lifters, push rods and AC. Drago 2. CycleRama 575. Progressive monotones -1in. 12in. HD adjustable rear shocks. Painted inner fairing. Tuned with TTS. Blacked out!

I installed Hells Foundry adjustable faring mount so I could raise the faring 2Ē for the lowers

Also went with their internal faring support so I could forget about the 2010 faring part.
Might have been a bit cheaper going with the 2010 parts but everything I read said you had to trim the lowers where they met with the 2010 bracket. I had bought HD Lowers from a forum member & then had them painted vivid black so didnít want to take a chance on scratching the lowers by trimming.
