I installed the Memphis shades bat wing fairing on my King and love it . yours will be a lot more work . mine clips on and off really easy . you won`t be as lucky . for under $500.00 it was a great deal ... brand new !

way cheaper if you do it yourself ....

The frame is identical between the two.

So provided you have all the parts for the RG, you have everything you need to swap over the fairing.

The Roadglide Service Manual and Parts Book would come in handy right about now . :thumbsup :)

It's not all that much work to change the parts out . :)

Your biggest issue may be deciding on how you want to handle your instrumentation. Road King has everything on the tank and Road Glide has a fork-mounted cluster and added instruments in the fairing. Wiring harness will need special attention. Plus wiring up the sound system.

There is a thread on this forum about a very detailed conversion from Street Glide to Road Glide that may help give you and idea of the scopemof this project.

Sounds like you're good to go!

The conversion thread I'm referring to was done by 2stangs8689. When you read that thread, I think you'll find that you won't need youtube. If you saw his finished product, it would be impossible to tell that the bike didn't roll off the assembly line as a Road Glide. Except for the fact that the build quality is better than factory.
