I am planing to buy Chromed Air Box Cover, Sport Front Fender and Rear Fender. I would like to know if anyone who switched to a chromed airbox cover and lives in a sunny area such as Florida or California has had any problems with sun and heat being reflected from the Chromed air box on/at the rider to a point where it is not possible to ride the bike due to heat ...

Thanks.

Ori we get a fair share of sun here in Texas and I have chrome skins on both mine and Jeannie's and have had no problem at all.

Thanks Max.
The HD dealer in Israel told me that he was riding a bike with Chromed air box and had slight sun burn from the mirror effect of the air box....

Because the top is actually concave instead of convex the effect of the glare on the rider is minimal but to be honest I never even notice it unless people comment.
