06 The cowling was then removed and a step drill was used to drill the four new holes (two on either side). All the holes were drilled slightly larger than the mounting hardware for easy alignment/adjustment.
07 The tape was then removed, and the cowling was mounted to the fairing.
08 Here is what the black gel-coat cowling looked like once mocked up. Once satisfied with mockup, the cowling can be sent out to Mike who owns Mike’s Hawg Paint and he can paint it to match your stock colors or custom paint to match your paint scheme. Or of course you could send it to your local painter.
09 Here is a cowling that Mike painted to match their R&D fairing. This a lighted version of the cowling with the LED strips flush mounted into it.
10 Here you see the backside of the LED strip mounted into the fairing and the wiring harness that comes with it. AeroView wanted to make installation of the LED cowlings as simple as possible so they come with a plug-n-play harness that plugs right into your stock wiring.
11 We shut the garage door and turned off the lights to get a better view of the LED turn signal. With 10 LEDs built into each blinker, it provides plenty of flash for oncoming traffic to notice you.
12 Here’s the cowling on Bernard’s personal Road Glide. Even in the daylight, it’s hard to notice the flush-mounted LEDs when they aren’t flashing. With its slick, streamlined design, it looks like the bike should have rolled off the showroom floor with this cowling.
13 Not only do the mirrors look good but they work well too. Moving the mirrors off the handlebars and forward onto the fairing gives you a broader view of the road and a larger scanning area; it also helps reduce your blind spots. It does take some time to get used to the mirrors going from moving with the handlebars to being mounted to a fixed point, but then again, the rearview mirror in your car doesn’t move as you turn does it? Also, the convex design of the mirrors widens your viewing area for a better field of view.
