I was attempting to install some of the hidden fairing mounts on my 2017 Road Glide this afternoon and I stripped out a brass nut in the fairing! I went to my Harley dealer and he looked up the part on a schematic and it is not available as an individual piece, it is included in the $90 "Media Storage Compartment". With the fairing off, the stock fairing support bracket bolts into the piece that is broken. I bought a brass insert from an older model in an attempt to fix it but it does not hold very well.

Since the fairing bracket is bolted into this piece I do not really want t o rig anything up but it is installed in a piece of plastic so I don't know how strong it really needs to be.

Has anyone encountered anything like this or have a suggestion? Thanks!

I know what you mean. I recently trailered to bike week, before you even start... my girl is pregnant and really did not want to ride 500+ miles. On the return the tie down broke my fairing support some how and I cannot find a simple replacement bracket, without having to buy more than just that piece. STUPID!

This is for Batwings but looks like the same one that is used in my 17 RGU

I would obtain a threaded brass ferrule that matches the bolt ( BOLT X 3/4 HEX HEAD ). Then I remove the old one, insert the new one and use epoxy or JB WELD.

I did the same exact thing. Stripped it and H-D was no help. I bought one of these from Lowe’s and JB welded it in. No issues since.
