Need options for replaceing weatherstripping

Hello,
One of the flaws that seems to be common in every "Glide" motorcycle is that the black weatherstipping between the inner and outer snakes right out. I left mine out because it was so out-of-spec and I had no new. Im not sure I want to go back to the OEM style anyway. A friend in my congregation has a Street Glide and this is a problem for him too. What are my options for a higher quality weatherstrip that will stay put? Also I have a Windvest sheild and I do not know if it a factory part but the weatherstripping on the lower edge of this is not impressing me either.

I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself.--DH Lawerence

try X-trim they sell a kit for both fairing and the windshield - I put it on early this spring and have about 15K miles since with no issues at all.

X-trim

X-trim all the way. Just google xtrim and it will take you right to it.

X-Trim works well. Same can be found on auto parts at lower price.
Used on the fairing and wind shield.

go to your local auto parts store and get door edge Gard for a car, i got mine at advance auto, its a tiny bit wider then stock HD so it fills space very well, you will probably have to heat it with a hair drier to make it easy to put on

Another vote for X-trim here. Secure, goes on easy, & no adhesive needed.

another x trim advocate

with x trim you don't need any adhesive

with the factory stuff some say caulking or a light bead of roofing tar from a tube , but I did those and they were even messier

i used the Door Edge guard from Auto zone on my windshield. looks and works great! just now starting to have some issues with the weather strip on the left side of the fairing by the glove box, so no experience with xtrim.

After 8 yrs, say WTF for took it off, used wellnuts (with larger thin neophrems) longer with raised buttons. Still an't figured out what the strip is good foe except to place in parts boxes with $hit like the belt gaurd. No the rain don't get in or(wind whistle @ or if it does who cares you wet on a bike, the dash mainly dry. that was two yr ago, seal the inner Shit..... cosmetic!!!
