    Also My bars are higher than stock so they are higher than what would be normal and stick out from behind fairing also .. now i am also thinking about stretching the holes maybe and lifting it little higher but ill wait to ride ..

    Also my radio will not fit in stock spot but i got a plan and i think it will work pics later if it does..

    I put one on my 04 Fatboy and it added a whole new look to the bike. Only issue was the headlight adjustment. I ended up drilling the holes out on the "quick detach" to raise the shield and my headlight. I do not take it off and on so the nylon tabs are no big deal. I really like mine and it is nice on a cool morning.
