Post Street Glide Fairing Removal

I searched the internet for a step by step guide to remove the front fairing on a Street Glide and couldn't find anything. So I decided to do it myself. This is my first post and I wanted to make a more detailed front fairing removal guide, so here goes!

#1 You will need a T-27 for all 7 screw removal. Remove the windsheild as to make it easier to handle the fairing. There are three screws you must take out. Pull the winsheild toward the front fairing to create a gap for it to slip over the bolt holes. After the windsheild is removed, replace the middle screw on the fairing for support.

#2 Locate and remove the screws on the left and right hand side below the mirrors.

#3 Locate and remove the screws that are just inside the forks on the left and right below the inner fairing.

#4 You should have six screws removed with the seventh being the one that was reinstalled in step one. It is suggested that you put something over your front fender to protect it during fairing removal. While supporting the fairing, remove the last screw that was reinstalled in step #1.

#5 Pull the fairing from the bike and unplug the headlight from its cord.

Follow in reverse order for easy installation.

Hope this makes it easy for anyone wanting to remove the front fairing!

it's quite easy after you've done it the first time. you just gotta remember those hidden bolts. it's a good idea to put a blanket or something soft on your front fender, just in case.

Personally I do your step #1 as the third step so I have a firm hold on the fairing as I remove the final center screw...

Good post. It's nice to have some new step-by-step posts vs. using the search function and reading for days.

I remove the center windshield screw last (pull the windshield before screw is fully removed, as it will hold on the batwing and prevent it from falling. I have aux headlamps, and they also will somewhat hold the batwing in place if no screws are in it if you are not moving the bars around.

Good tip. Another good tip I learned from here is if you have passing lights use pair of old tube socks and cover them as well.

Thanks Man, I was missing those lower screws at first, your post cleared that issue up in a big hurry.
Unfortunately the code on the radio that said speakers open, I did not find this to be the actual physical case, off to the dealer tomorrow to see if the extended warranty really works!!!!
