Thread: My new Fairing on a 07 LE ( its different )

    Default My new Fairing on a 07 LE ( its different )

    Just wanted to share my pix of what i have done to my m109. I really like what they are doing with the Harley Road Glide, but when i drove it the bike didnt have the power i wanted. So i decieded to put the Fairing on my bike and save 22K. I have been working on the bike for over a two months and have 3k in the project. We are at the last Stage and that is painting it. I know people will be hard on me and say what the heck did u do, But i still want to know what u think. I wont feel bad.

    I hope you like.

    When I first bought the bike

    I put the bike together and drove it for about 130 miles and made sure the fairing wasnt going anywhere. I hit speeds of 120 mph its really nice to have a stereo

    The stereo is the CMV1 by clarion (dvd player)
    with the hog tunes 5X7 speakers
    hog tunes amp
    klock werks 12 screen (no pix of it on yet)

    I still have to re-route the brake lines
    add the hd gauges
    I have wiring that i have to do to make it look very kleen.

    i think you might be able to pull it off, but i think it would have to be a complete custom fairing. That one seems to sit too high for my tastes. i think i doesn't flow with the lines of the tank and that where the problems begin. aesthetically i would want to the fairing bottom to flow with the tank , and at the same time you need the fairing to not hit the tank when doing locked turns.
    But everyone has their own tastes and looks, so do your thing bro. Throw some paint on it and it it looks better to me then, I will have no problem saying so.

    Talking

    I think it nothing short of genius! Once the paint is on, I believe it will flow nicely The frame mount is the leap here! In the future a custom fairing mounted in this fashon would be a nice Scooby addition to options for the 9

    Great job on taking the leap and doing something different.
    I don't think it works with the lines of the bike, but with paint, and some adjustments, it might work.
    Post pics once its all painted up.

    I'm obviously in the minority here, but I love it! I think it looks great and will look even better when painted.

    Default hmmm

    how about make it 1 headlight instead of two. that way it looks like u super sized your regular 109 headlight. when painted it will look better.

    Default Not Cool At All

    I don't want to sound critical by any means. However, you did ask for opinions. I don't think that fairing fits the bike at all. It is too big, it sits far too high, it doesn't flow with the lines of the bike, and the two headlight set up is way off track. The whole set up makes the bike look really weird. I think you may have let your imagination run too far on this one. It doesn't look good at all...painted or not IMO.

    Check with your DMV. There are leagal limmits to how high off the ground your headlight can be.



    OH, and better beef up that front suspension.

    I applaud your ingenuity. Of all the Harley dressers, I like the road glide fairing least of all. This picture reminds me of a sports team mascot with the really big head......


    Looking forward to seeing it painted and finished. for making it your own.

    Opinions like belly buttons. Everyone has one. What counts is do you like it? I think it will look quite different when you paint it. Lots of work and imagination there. I will reserve an opinion till I see the finished product.

    With that much weight in the front he might find himself riding endo style all the time without ever touching his front brakes.

    When he turns in that card, they will issue him an LBHE card for his M109.

    LBHE: Limited Big Head Edition , but most of all . I can't stop laughing. Every time I look at it or think about it, it just gets me to giggling all over again. I couldn't go an a ride with someone who had a bike like that because I wouldn't be able to stop laughing at that bike. It is funny. I hope I don't offend anyone, but that bike is hilarious. That bike looks like it came around a corner, and someone jump out and scared the hell out of the bike. Just look at the expression of the bike in the last picture with those two headlights. Man, Iv'e got tears in my eyes from laughing so much.

    The best part to customizing is doing what the hell you like to your bike, being expressive just for the hell of it...If you like it - it is worth it!

    Objective achieved I'd say.

    The harley Road glide look is not for everyone, But to call me an idiot is a lil harsh. (KEZZ) I know the only person I have to please is me and thats what I did. The front end does not feel heavy at all as matter of fact it feels no different at all.

    I can get to the fork lock
