Ok not sure if this has ever been answered but, why is it that there are certain items, namely fairings, that fit all sportster models except the "C" model? This is irritating as I happen to have such model and there have been a few parts that I would have liked to purchase for my bike but can't because of it being a "C" model. So can someone tell me why that is?

I can understand your pain.
I have a 2014 Custom CB and it is a nightmare trying to get anything to fit.
HD do a 1/4 fairing and of course they say it didn't fit. BUt no one could tell me why with 100% certainty.
I ended up with a Memphis Shades Gauntlet

Custom, or C model, sportsters have a riser that other models do not have. This affects the placement of the bars, gauge, turn signals, so on and so forth. For that reason, there are certain fairings and add ons that will not work.

Check out the parts you want, try to find something local, if all fails, modify, that why its called a "C", for custom.
