Sancho wings

So I took my bike to the dealer a few weeks ago for the recall and 5g service. Hadn't heard from them so I stopped by today too see if it was ready. When the service mgr came out she had a worried look on her face. She said you know those plastic things on your fairing well we broke one. She asked where I got them I told her and she comes out with another pair but they are smaller than my original pair. I'm not sure if I'm upset that they were going to just replace it without telling me or not. So now they are going to install them then deliver her home. My wife thinks there should be a discount involved no matter what. Sancho if you see this can you verify you changed the size so I know they actually got them from you. Thanks

Since Sancho is the only one that I know of that makes them for the RG, I am pretty sure what she is trying to replace them with is the Harley ones for the Batwing. They are much smaller. I would definitely ask for some compensation for the broken part, since you now have to replace it.

They've had it for several weeks? That sounds bad right there. And they can tell easily enough that they aren't HD parts. They should have called you and asked what they were. Unless of course it just happened as they were bringing it out.

Which is easy enough to do. I ended up breaking two of them last year (bumped them with my leg as I was walking around the bike and they cracked right off) so I just gave up on them. Motorcycles are supposed to be windy anyway.

Talked with sancho via email this evening and it appears he has changed the design and its not the first time a shop has broken a set.

Did the shop have a set of Sancho's Wings? Or is the one they offered the HD set that they sell for the Street Glides? If it's the HD set, I wonder if it would have fitment issues.

After talking with Sancho I'm pretty sure they got the set from him.

They bought them from me. A pretty good dealer because some dealers will not replace them because they are not HD parts. HD does not make them for a Road Glide and the ones for an Electra Glide will not fit in any way. For some reason dealers seem to break them quite often.
I am now making them 1" narrower, same length, starting 12/1/2011. They work just as well however may look a little better in that they don't stick out quite as far from the fairing.
I can still make the wider ones.

Yes they've been a great dealer to work with. This was the first time I've had any issue at all.

No I can't say the new design will prevent breakage when over tightening.
