Resurrecting a very old post --

How are you mounting the lower fairing skirt - especially to hold the Street Glide turn signals?

No, not yet. Still gathering a few bits and pieces.
On the Street Glide I believe the fairing skirt bolts to the lower tree both from the front and sides - along with the turn signals. Wondering how those who have done it to the R* have provisioned for attaching.

I modified my trees so that everything bolts on just like factory. With trim work even the inner switch cap. Uses harley lower fork covers as well (for custom ones )
Also needs to use bagger bars and 4 piece risers (two seporate risers)

I am trying to sell my complete tree setup now that i no longer have my roadie

Both modified trees, leg covers and modified risers. I also have a hd headlight just needs the lens.

Off an 05 but i am not aware of any change to the trees in any year range. Top Tree is drilled for the switch cap. Bottom tree as parts welded to it for the faring support and leg covers. Also clamps made from another lower tree to be used for the top suppprts.

All the Roadstar triple clamps are the same physically.
Cosmetics are the only difference (chrome, brushed, etc).
What bolts to one will bolt to all.

If VstarNC passes, I may be interested in those trees as well. I've been looking for a way to mount the RG nacelle to my forks and that may be just the ticket
