Fairing Trim

Does anyone else have a problem with the little rubber trim piece between the inner and outer fairing coming loose. Its like the glue melts and ends up flapping in the wind working itself off.

This issue has been brought up before on here. I had the same problem. I went with the recomended company and ordered a new set of trim fro both my fairing and my windshield and it works great without any glue or adhesive keeping it in place.

Go to your local auto parts store and buy a tube of 3M emblem and trim adhesive. Problem solved. http://3mcollision.com/3m-plastic-em...3601-1572.html

I had a dealer replace mine, but they warned me that they wouldn't be able to do any better than it was originally. I got the deadly "they all do that".

I don't know....

....if they all do it but mine is!
When I had my 1000mi service, the service advisor said Harley's trim sucks.
So I guess that's no big secret either.

Save yourself some money and get some automotive trim from the local auto parts store. Its thicker, wider and more durable than stock.
