Raise Front Fairing for Lowers

My uncle bought a 2000 RG and gave me his lowers. I test fitted them to my 2007 RG, the top of the lowers seem to touch the front fairing to where they won't wrap around the bar fully. I stopped by the dealership and they suggested that I might have to raise the front fairing. So my question is, how do I do this?

2 ways :

The inner fairing has 4 bolts holding it to the mount. Access these by taking outer off and look toward the center behind all the wires. 2 bolts on each side, loosen them and raise up and bolt back.

2) - engine guard fairing mounts, loosen them and pull the back to raise up the outter portion of inner fairing. I would try this first

Are these the non vented Roadglide specific fairings?

Will the front fairing have do go back down once I raise it?

Yes, non-vented. My cousin asked if I have after market crash bars, but I don't think I do. Came with the bike and looked like my uncles on his bike.

Well, the left lower fairing goes into place, the right lower fairing doesn't and touches the front fairing.

Technically they should fit. In regards to fitment of the Road Glide specific HD Non-Vented Lower Fairings, there is no differnce between the 2000 and 2007 model. The best thing I can recommend is, check Harley's website and verify that the fairings your Uncle gave you match the appearance of the ones in the catalog first. Or, post some pics of them. If I could see some pics, I could tell you if they "should" fit.

They are non-vented. What kind of photo's do you need?

I just test fitted the left one, and it fit perfect (I didn't mount it, but it didn't touch the front fairing).

If your lower Fairings look like these.... they should fit. If they don't, something is either out of alignment or been changed.

Lower the crash bar, I did this on my old 01 SE RG and used "new style lowers" for 6.5 speakers.
Drilled new holes in the bottom and welded a tab on the top mount.

HD makes a non vented fairing lowers for the batwing bikes HD part # 58830-88DH. The non vented fairing lowers for the batwing bikes are a little bigger and the fairing cap is larger than the non vented Road Glide Specific lowers HD part # 58841-98.
If the non vented fairing lowers are the Batwing style they will not fit your bike right unless the upper fairing is raised.
