I'm on the fence about them. Didn't have them on my 08 Street Glide. But that had a real dyno tune and ran cool. Had them on the RGU and that pig was hot. Even after the tune. My new RGS hasn't made me feel the need yet. 85 here today. So it's just got. If I do the company that does the circuit selling painted inner fairings has the heat guards color matched.

If i had to sit in stop and go i may consider those. With about 1 mile of small town America city riding on a 10 mile commute i don't have heat issues. IF i had to drive in big city traffic i would definitely consider them. My style of riding is open road where heat so far hasn't been an issue for me.

I'm loving my $20 eBay ones. Life savers in the extreme heat during the vacation!

Looks good, that was one of the first things I put on my new 16 RGS because some say the 103 runs hot. I really don't know if that's true, my old bike a 08 electra glide classic in hot weather and in the city it got a little hot on the thighs and I didn't have those on it. Now the new bike I have zero heat issues even in stop and go when it was 100 a couple weeks ago. To me the 103 runs way cooler than the 96.

They all work, some better then others. My brother had Harley plastic ones on his old RGU and ended up adding Captain-itch's leather heat deflector, not the nicest looking but works well. The best you can get is RJ's, looks great & made right here in US.
Got them on my bike , the bend on my 2-1 comes out pretty far so this solved any heat issue

I just added the HD ones, after a year without.

I think they work. Outstanding, no. Help with heat yes.

Glad I didn't get a used set, as the hardware that comes with the new ones are essential. Considering the work to get clips off the frame, I'm guessing a used set would not come with them.

Worth the $60.
