12 Ultra Classic hard lowers on 08 RG?

A buddy is getting rid of his vented hard lowers from his Ultra Classic. Will they fit my 08 RG? If so, what brackets might I need to get to make it work?

Thanks!

There's a few that have made the conversion and all you need is the fairing hardware from an 09 and up. It lifts your front end up so it will clear the top of the lowers. Kinda like a cher, you know its older but but everything isnt tucked in her waistband...

The bracket change was 2010 and later.
Fairing bracket part# 58530-10. you use the original radio bracket.
Lower Clamp Part #s are 58454-10 (left) 58460-10 (right).
The caps are an additional $40 if needed, but you can reuse the original cap.

The brackets you will need to make the change are 58530-10 (center main fairing bracket) 58454-10 (lower left) and 58460-10 (lower right) and time to do the convesion. Oh, and if the caps for the lowers are not RG specific caps, you may have to shorten the caps by cutting the leg looking extensions that goes on the crash bar the amount to be reduced is 2.5 inches.
