New Road Glide Adjustable fairing bracket

http://mcbaggers.com/product/fm15-a/

Years 15 and up are available now and years 14 and down will be 2 weeks according to their post.

If anyone is interested let me know I can start a group buy with a local shop.

The stance looks killer with that new bracket.

wonder how it would handle real world in high cross winds
also site does not offer installation details - video on testing - riding with the lowered options
will have to wait for testers I guess -
if forks 1" lowered in the front how will affect?
seems like it would lower the fairing like previous 2001/2004 RGs
I remember seeing better over my 2001/2004 - pre 09 frame
Great Idea though

Thanks

I could see doing this if it somehow put your helmet in the clean air and eliminated buffeting. Of course it won't work on my FLTRU.

It attachs to your mounting bracket, and lowers in 1/2" incriments. The bar that supports it helps reduce flex so in high crosswinds it should be more stable.


1. Installs in about 40 minutes, with no permanent alterations to your stock bike; no drilling, no rerouting of wires, grommets, etc.

2. Wing-like structure provides all the support the fairing needs across the length of the fairing?not just in the middle.

3. Lower your fairing by up to three inches, or raise by up to 1 inch, in 1/2" increments, for a total of 9 different settings.

4. If you don't get that sweet spot the first time, you can easily and quickly adjust the height again after initial installation, without removing the fairing.

5. Zero chance of your fairing hitting the fender?guaranteed.

We're offering free FedEx worldwide shipping on this product for all online orders through the end of October.

US & international patents pending.

Very interesting concept.
Hafta wait for the 14 and down.
Might be a good winter project.
