    Just saw this... For 09's up and only $30. Wonder how effective it is? Also, it says will not fit models equipped with the Fuel Tank retrofit mounting kit.. well isn't that most everyone who had that tank recall?

    Ride safe have fun.

    You know, I saw the exact same thing yesterday and wondered the same as you. They look like they might me quite functonal but anybody who has an 09 or a 2010 has had the tank kit added for safety. Do you suppose there is a workaround? Would like to see them actually mounted on a 2011 Road Glide to see how they fit. Maybe some brave soul with an 09 or 2010 will try a set and report in.

    Looks like they snap around the crash bar and bolt on using the front mount tank bolts. I'll pick up a set when they become available and one way or another I'll mount them on my bike.

    Here is what I found out....

    The "retrofit kit" covers a recall:

    Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
    H-D / FLHP 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHPE 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHR 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHR SHRINE 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHRC 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHT 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHTC 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHTCU 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHTCU SHRINE 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHTCU W/SC 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHTCU4-CVO 2009
    H-D / FLHTCUSE4 2009
    H-D / FLHTCUSE5 2010
    H-D / FLHTCUTG 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHTK 2010
    H-D / FLHTP 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHX 2009-2010
    H-D / FLHXSE 2010
    H-D / FLHXXX 2010
    H-D / FLTR 2009
    H-D / FLTR3-CVO 2009
    H-D / FLTRSE3 2009

    So looks like if we had the tank recall done, it won't fit. But I wonder if the part can be modified. For $30 bucks, I just might try it as it looks like it snaps to the crash bar and then to the tank bolt. Maybe the small plastic retro fit tank mount interfers with the part snapping in place.

    Oh well, will have to see.

    I wonder why they would not fit an 07. If anyone can try it on an 07 please report back your findings. Maybe they will make one for earlier models. I am still trying to like the RG, it is the annoying buffeting.
