Aftermarket lowers?

Well here it's goes just got back from Gettysburg and saw a few nice roadglides up close with some after market lowers , I know advanblack makes some and so does hogwerks, how do they fit? How do you like em? And is it still hot in the summer months even with the vents open? I have a 96 inch motor with no oil cooler if that helps, any input fellas is much appreciated as always.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

I can't speak to the quality of the AM ones. Just to the heat in the summer. Your legs will get a bit warmer. But it's not bad. I throw my feet onto the highway pegs and the wind comes right up my legs. No issue. Close them in the rain helps keep a dry and when its cold they keep you warm. And they funnel air into the motor. They help cool the motor.

I love mine and will never have a bike without them.

Mine are HD lowers. Ordered them color matched the same day I bought the bike.

I left in the rain and about 2 hours later the sun came out and hit 90. Pulled off the rain gear and the an hour later. I got smashed. Traffic slowed. 4 ways on. It was bad. Passed a bunch of bikes hiding under bridges. Took 9 hours to do a 6 1/2 hour trip. To bad traffic jams. Shit ride home.

Road dawg I have a set of Mutazu Lowers on my 2012 Glide and for the price they have held up extremely well since 2014.
I have Advanblack Speaker Pods as well as their Extended Saddlebags and am very pleased with their products as well.
If you decide on Mutazu make sure to call and mention Our Forum for a discount.
Either Company, in my opinion, are great to work with.
Let us know how you make out.
Best of Luck.

I have no Complaints with Advan Black, easy assembly, fit n finish is excellent, no significant heat from my experience. Also in rainy weather you may stay a bit dryer but rain is rain.

That's awesome, great info also like the look it has grown on me, I will definitely be looking at this upgrade when the season ends and winter upgrades start. As for the ride home definitely sucked,I got hammered for an hour and a half in hard rain, bit pressed on and by the time I got to NY border it cleared up, shit ride home , I was wet,put on the rain gear but I got pretty wet till I pulled over.

Went with the XMFT chrapos off Amazon. They fit just fine and the black matches perfect. Just had to go to the local hardware store to get 1 1/4" clamps for the bottom as they sent 1".
