Does anyone know if it is true that the 2009 & newer fairing support/brackets have been modified from the MOCO to sit the Shark Nose lower on the frame? If this is true, can I purchase the newer support/brackets and bolt them right up to my 2003 frame? I want to lower the nose @ 2 inches on my scooter. Thanks in advance for any info that will help me reach my goal. Jimmy

2010 was the year it changed, both the frame mounting bracket and the two down brackets to the engine guard,

Thanks! Does that mean the newer bracket/supports will or will not work on my 2003 frame??

The bracket and supports will work on your bike, but you will have to switch them both. Just buying the supports won't work, and likewise with just the bracket.

The newer parts will not lower the fairing. They will RAISE the rear a bit and angle the fairing a couple of degrees.

They allow you to put vented lowers on without modifying the caps.

So what you and chainsaw are saying is if I change out the brackets on my 06 to the brackets of an 10 I can run the vented lower fairings? Are you talking about lower fairings that come on the FLHTC.
Thanks

Yes, the Vented lowers stock on Ultras and used as Add Ons for other Bat Wing models can be used when the Fairing Mounts from 2010-later Road Glide is used on any 2009-earlier Road Glide. But you must replace all three mounts. The main Fairing mount and two supports.

I just finished up this mod on my 06. The fairing mount is on but I still have to put the inner and outer fairing back on. My HD color matched vented lowers will not be here for a few more weeks. It was just under a 100 bucks for the supports and mounting bracket as long as you don’t buy new "c clamps" for the supports. That’s another 50 bucks. It took about two and a half months to get the left fairing support in due to back order.

Thanks guys. RBW427 do you have the part numbers?
I sure do and here they are. I quoted you the wrong price, it was $173.80. My parts guy hooked me up with a really good discount so I paid a little over 100 bucks. I do not have the "c clamp" part numbers but they are 50 bucks a pop...I couldn’t believe that they are more than the supports. You can use your stock clamps though. Sorry about the mix up on the price. Hope this helps.

58530-10 Bracket, Fairing Mount 75.20
58454-10 Left Support, Lower Fairing 49.30
58460-10 Right Support, Lower Fairing 49.30

Thanks very much guys for the info. Everything fit and work perfect.
Glad to hear it. I have my RG back together now and I am so glad I chose to take the extra time to change the mount and brackets to put the vented lowers on. I am very happy with the out come.

Anyone want to sell your takeoff fairing brackets, I'm updating my 2000 to take the bullet front turn signals need the later fairing brackets.

Has anyone tried and confirmed that the older lower support brackets will not go on the bike when using the 2010 upper support? i know to use he vented lowers you need both but if the old brackets can be used I can whip up a .5" spacer in the machine shop and get longer studs for less than the $80 they want for the 2 lower support brackets.
