Outer Fairing Allignment

anyone have any problems with the new 6.5" speakers sitting to high and causing the outer to not want to line up properly?
Is this a problem with the adapters? I

thought I was done but after trying to put the outter fairing on I realize I have a way to go.......... LOL

what kind of speakers are you referring to?

What is the mounting depth?

What adapters are you using?

The fairing was never a breeze to put back on, but now it feels like it is in a bind...... It kinda needs man handled to get back on... Just wondered if this was common after swapping speakers?

the adapters were kinda a pita to get on, but i didn't have any problem with them 'pushing' the outer fairing out any. i was using the polk dxi 650s on my bike. maybe the adapter needs to be rotated some so that the offset is sitting more in or down? (does that make any sense?)

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I had those ARC's on the last RG (they were on the bike when I bought it) and one side a part of the ring cracked the inner fairing. I had to trim the rib on it a little and noticed that the other side was trimmed as well. I used Hawg wired and then Biketronics on this Glide.

I have the Rokkers with the adapter rings and no issues at all with reinstall of the fairing.

Enjoy the Ride!

I used Hawgwired, then Hard Ride Audio adaptors and I have Focal KR series speakers, they touch the dynomat, but I have no problems besides the usual getting the fairing on, the MM series Polks have very small magnets, they shouldn't touch at all. I'm not familiar with ARC adaptors, but have heard good things about them, are you sure you have them positioned right?

I installed them according to the instructions.... However after reading a little on here It may be an issue with the adapters....

Speaker Fit

I used the Arc Audio and Polk speakers.
No problem in the area of the 6.5's, a slight rub on the outer fairing at the right side 6X9 in the lower, but not bad.
Here is a link to the whole project, the pics were perfect before and just now they looked blurry, hope they show well for you:

i don't know why when using the same adapters on the same bike, i did not have to trim anything. they fit fine. it took me a couple of tries to get them positioned correctly, the instructions were not super clear, but after i got them figured out, worked fine.
