Advanblack lowers vent removal?

Hey any members here, have you guys removed the vents from your lowers totally, the vents with my lowers are decent, but was wondering if I removed them would I get more flow.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

Yep, I did that pretty much right after installing my AB lowers. I ordered the plastic vent covers from Harley that are used on the twin cooled ultras, and they snapped right into place. I keep the solid panels in the saddlebag if it rains and can just swap them out in no time.

Looks like one bolt on the bottom and they come off very easy , if you have any pics of your finished product please share, greatly appreciated.

Yeah it made a difference for sure. I also removed the vent door completely (tried that first, but it didn't make enough of a difference) as you will see in the pics. The part #s for the left and right radiator screens are 57100151 and 57100152.

Thank you for that pic, and the part numbers, looks great, so you feel with the screens installed you get better cooling than without?

For sure. It's a simple, cheap mod.
