    Fairing vent will not close???

    Got my bike out to give it a bath earlier today and the fairing vent will not close. As in, stuck open all the time! The button depresses slightly and I can see the vent move a small amount. Anyone else ever had this issue?

    When was the last time you had the fairing off ??? I had a little issue with mine let it sit for a week or so and had a mouse try and move in.

    Fairing has not been off this year. Looks like I've got another project!

    Not something so easy on mine! Looks like the button itself took a crap. The fine Chinese plastic is broken and now its another $67 to the stealership.


    Did I mention that this will be my last Harley? Tired of inferior parts and no support! Maybe that's why I find myself spending more time on one of the three 41 year old Suzuki GS's that I own than on the Street Glide these days.

    Good news! Decided to contact an online dealer and inquire about the broken vent button. They informed me that the "latch" is a common item to break on these vents. It is under the button and actually comes with the button when you order one. But it is also available separately! SO...….for a whopping $4.87 plus shipping I will have a working vent again! Don't you just love it when you have to go online to get decent service from a dealer??? My local stealership told me that the complete button had to be purchased for $67!

    Good for you. I never close these vents-they stay open all the time.

    Here is a picture of the "latch". It is Harley part #76000127 and is marked latch, media compt. Probably the same latch that is used on the door on the right side of the radio. Changing it out took about 30 minutes, just because the fairing front has to be removed. $4.87 part from Surdyke fixed the vent!
