Default 1/4 fairing on a softail

will a 1/4 fairing from a wide glide II work on a night train? it would be the same front end. i can't find a listing anywhere for a fairing to fit a softail or a dyna wide glide. a friend of mine has an 02 wide glide II and it looks like it'd fit on my train.

Most are generic mounting, you get the fairing and then make up your own mounting brackets. They sell them for wide and narrow front forks.

Buy a fairing and use turn signal relocation brackets to mount the fairing to the bike. I can get you both.

The one thing to be concerned about on a train is the height of the bars as one customer of mine said the bars where in the way when turned to either side and hit the fairing. I think the got bars with a little more pullback to solve the problem.

sledhead, you get any further with your setup? i have a nightrain and looking to put a fairing and then some type of audio setup under the shield.


MLWilson, where did you find that first pic of the deuce? it looks like he might have his sitting a little further back and wanted to see if i can find more pics of his setup. thanks.


Drew, shoot me an email on the same fairing like the first duece pic that MLWilson posted. I assume i might need the brackets too. if you can send me a price on each item separately that would be great. i am also looking into a few more items. i will be in your system already from buying other items.

Default 03 Night Train Arlen Ness Fairing

So I just added the Arlen ness fairing to my Night train. I made my own brackets and also painted them, and used the holes already on the triple t up on the forks. Just had to buy bolts which were very cheap. I relocated my turn signals from the top of the lower T to the bottom. That was easy! Then I just had some help holding the fairing in place so I only have to drill one whole in the faring. Everything came out great. I just got the headlight extender block to push it flush with the fairing but I will have to rig up some wiring because the it was long enough for the 2 in block extended headlight. So that will have to wait. It does make a difference when riding. The wind is not as it use to be without it. And people seem to like how it looks. I personally didn't think it would look good as I did it for the purpose of blocking the wind. But it has grown on me. I took pictures of the progress....
