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!
