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.
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.
They should, because I know that the old style (what you have) will fit the new Rushmore bikes with a little modification. I actually prefer the look of your style lowers, but I wanted the vent system of the Rushmore style.
Honestly I wouldn't spend the money on a set of newer style lowers. The little bit extra air wouldn't be worth the added cost. If you are getting heat build up, you might want to try the new CoolFlow fan from HD. I've got one on order to try out on my bike for around town traffic. They say it won't do anything at highway speeds though.
At my recent 5000mile service the valeting guy at the dealership was using a little buffing machine with a soft wheel and he buffed out the couple of small boot-heel marks on a saddlebag lid. Like magic.
I've got a bigger version for my car, but it's way too much to put on a bike.

I have a 2016 Road Glide Ultra, and I am going to get the crash bar powder coated here at a local shop. My bike has the lowers with the radiators. My original thought was to buy one off somebody have it coated and just swap all at once with a buddy at the house. Then not having to worry about...
