Need assistance on upper fairing vent on 2015 RGU
« on: September 01, 2019, 11:55:02 PM »

Riding home I noticed my upper fairing vent closed by itself.  The button just rocks back and forth and will not open the vent anymore. Attached are two pics of the assembly removed from the bike.  I think the problem is with the arm I have circled. Should it be attached to the clip below.  Thanks in advance.

Look at the attached drawing and specifically at item #25, see if you are missing that part.  I don't see it in your photo.

In the drawing above number 25 is what they call a switch and inside it there is a little catch tooth. 
The catch is flimsy and most likely broken off. The dealership will have one to replace it, it costs about $4.00 and you can replace it yourself in about 10 minutes.

GRC and King Glide,  thank you both.  It appears the catch is broken.  Really appreciate the quick response.

That catch is most flimsy and I have replaced three. It's more of a problem to get to it than anything else. On the 2020 Road Glides, the side vents have been eliminated altogether. Not sure how they expect that to work in the rain.  :huepfenlol2:

  The heal shifter was eliminated also.  They just keep taking away content, and raising the price.

Not quite true. The vents are still there. The doors to close them off are gone.

Thanks again for the help.  Fixed both the top vent and the left side.  Found the catch broken on both.  Since I've only had the bike for 3 months and already broken two, I am sure this will impact several others so below is a pic of the new part on the left and the broken one on the right (You'll notice the catch missing).  HD Part # 57100167.

You may want to ask for a volume discount and buy a dozen.

Almost 5 years and 40k miles on mine and no problems with my vents. And yes, I open and close them somewhat frequently.
