Not sure why anyone would want to shut or block-off the Vents. I closed mine Once, when new and then re-opened them and they have never been closed again in 7 years. Grant you I live in Florida but I've ridden in the high 30 degrees and still never realized a need to close them. But to each his own. I tend to think that HD stopped putting them on new bikes because no one used them and it saved a few bucks.

Are those fairing lowers std or did you have them put on, they look great side on.
Got any pictures looking from the front to show us. thanks in advance.

BTW, that is the best color I have seen since 2012.

I have only closed the vents once on my 2015 CVO road glide.  Too much buffetting when closed.  Never closed them on the 18 or 19 CVO road glide.  Have over 100K miles between those 3 bikes.

Beautiful new bike.  Love the color.

It’s a limited so the lowers are standard and house the radiators.
I have only driven the bike about 100 miles. (Snowing this morning again),  but there was more wind in the cockpit than I was use to in my bat wings. It seems most of the wind was coming through the holes in the fairing. I am hoping that with those vents closed but the upper vent open there will be little buffeting.

I'm glad I spent the money and got the Actual Harley Vent closures. The people in the southern states don't understand the temperature swings we can have up here. To be able to open or close is a "Must have" in my opinion.

I ordered the vent doors last week, the left side vent door is in stock but the right hand door is back ordered until June!
I would think everyone would order them in pairs.

Congrats on the new ride
just bought the same thing CVO limited  RG in the  wicked orange in the end of feb and had it for Daytona(bonus was had family there to  :bananarock:
  Should of gotten a RG yrs ago...  Wait till you get it on the interstate   wow   and i did do the hp hd cam,legends susp ft and rear    and was what i was looking for on the highway...came off of a 18 cvo anniv limited   Big thing I notice was no buffing passing semi trucks
As for the wind coming through the sid vents around the headlights haven't really noticed but then again i installed the custom dynamic headlight and the chrome vents with turn sig in them from custom dynamics .. Maybe that is why i haven't felt or noticed anything and also running the freedom shields windshield .. just my .02c

H-D eliminated the vent doors just like they did on the batwing fairing vent from 2020 to current. To many warranty replacements and to save money.
Remember charge more, give less.
That's Harleys moto.

Agree, I close them all when the temps drop into the 30’s or lower when I’m riding in the winter.
