Introducing the NoGlide

Built this a month or so ago. Had an idea and I finally got enough pieces & parts together and got it installed. Custom made neck support and I modified 2015 Road glide crash bar brackets to work with the 2005 fairing and the Kaw crash bar.

Still need to put the turn signals on and get some audio wired in. I am going to run the road glide 5.25 speakers along with some aftermarket gauges where the HD gauges were along with the Valkyrie tour pack speakers, Hopefully it works as well as I am thinking it will.

Don't mind the dirt, Just finished putting it back together and took it for a spin, Really like the headlight, Nice & bright.

i'm going to have my vinyl guy make some road glide script letters that say NoGlide for the front fender.

Just thought i'd share.

Few more pics, This bike is really working out for me with all of the additions and it's still a fairly low dollar investment.

I was able to use the stock turn signals by fabricating a small tab that bolts to the lower fairing bracket - I will definitely swap them out for something different but it got me on the road.

I noticed while riding the windshield height is perfect and my hands stay warmer. All in all I really like it. Do the sound system and paint this winter & should be ready to roll in the spring.

I was not happy with the headlight adjustment as I was able to aim it but it was leaned back all the way. I cut the nose bracket and leaned it back about 5 degrees. I then had to modify again the crash bar brackets. Now its perfectly aligned with the tank like it should be and the headlight is now centered in it's adjustment.

Ok, Here is the original placement.


Now the 5 degrees back. Tank lines up much better and you can see how the graphic would carry through the tank if I wanted to.


My 2 gauges in the dash - I think a compass & USB charger in the others.


Just because.

Thats the only style Harley fairing I like, all others look like add ons, like they were an after thought. Very nice job so far.

Looks surprisingly great! Prolly the 1st RG fairing I've seen on a kawi. It works! Curious though what ya plan on doing about fairing controls? As the inner fairing dash seems quite far away to reach. Mostly for audio I guess as it sounds like you are just running some gauges. And what year is the fairing?

Fairing is a 2005 is what I was told when purchased. I have a remote controlled stereo and plan on mounting it on the handlebar or below the spedometer, not sure yet.
I am 6'2" so it is actually not too bad to reach it but will definitely get the remote dialed in. I am working on adding lower fairings at the moment so it will be a little while for the audio.
