There DOES seem to be some inconsistency, my left side touches (keep it minf it is touching the rubber molding..not a painted surface), right side is 1 miilionth of an inch clear
Also, you do need to cut off the fiberglass portion which covers the "crash bars". This gives clearance for the fairing bracket. Hard to describe, but was very easy to figure out and do (we used an electric hand grinder with a cutting disc).
The local dealer told me this would work...gave me the nerve to try.
Two things influenced me to do it this way:
1. I wanted vented lowers and the ones for the glide are not available vented
This was pretty important to me since I have ridden RKs without vents in the summer
. I realize a couple companies make vents, but they are rather pricey and the reviews I found were not positive as to quality, air flow, etc.
2. I already had the FLH lowers, just had to get them painted cobalt blue (from black). the dealer guy I spoke with said others would purchase thw FLH lowers off e bay, etc...then conform to the glide.
