First Impressions, CVO Road Glide Limited
« on: April 29, 2022, 09:50:39 AM »

Hello all,
I picked up my new CVO Road Glide Limited yesterday at the dealer. This is my first shark nose, always had bat wings in the past. First Impressions:
Completely different feel with the fairing/ handlebars setup. A little unnerving initially. More room to move around because of the different shaped bars and the increased distance to the fairing. This was a positive.
The bike definitely feels more planted on the road. After becoming more familiar with the bike I felt myself going through the familiar corners faster and with more confidence. It felt like it was on rails.
Wind protection was not as good for me verses my old CVO Limited. The bike comes with a 14” windshield but most of the wind hitting me was coming through the holes in the fairing. My wife thought the wind protection was about the same for her.
Big advance in electronics, with the blue tooth wireless headset I can bring up Apple CarPlay or a lot of other screens. The information screen is neat, even shows the altitude. 5603 feet at home!
A lot to play around, it may snow tomorrow so I’ll be in the garage messing with the bike!

One of the first things I did when I got my '22 was to put in the Fairing vent closures.
Here in Michigan I need those vent's closed more than open.
Beautiful bike. Best CVO paint in years!

This is new to me! What are fairing vent closures and where do you get them?
I can close the top fairing vent but are they’re plugs available for the vents on either side of the headlights?
Does it increase buffeting?

HD removed the vent doors starting in 2020.....so you need to order 2019 fairing vent doors and install them. I did that for my 2020..easy install. It's the same vent you have only with a button and doors that close.

Like every year, Harley charges more and gives you less. Lol
Here are the Harley assembly part numbers:
29200071
29200072.
I believe they were about $160 for the pair from Surdyke.
They have them on Ebay for $125 but the actual Harley part is kinda sketchy so I don't
know if I would trust aftermarket.

If you want to close the vents and not use them at all, there’s a vendor on eBay that sells covers at $25 for a pair. They have good ratings. That’s what I plan on doing.

Great info to know, need to get these for my 2020 RGL. Congrats Marty, first CVO RG that makes me think I should have waited. Kinda built my own CVO in a way I guess but never the same. Wonder if I could/should pull the 131 parts and install in a new bike? Ok, that's just stupid..plus just got mine paid off. Looks great though. Bought mine at BHHD as well. Saw your photo and said to self, hey that looks like a familiar store front then I saw your location. If your there say hi to Brian Gruhn from Wayne. I don't remember the name of the tech (Kevin maybe) who installed my 131 kit but both made my purchase go very well. Cheers.

See if this is what you're looking for - Harley Road Glide fairing vent block closure (patent pending) no tools needed.
