    Am i going about this the right route?

    iI in the middle of a revamp. Most of what im doing i know. But im looking at fitting a handlebar fairing. Im wanting to use a handlebar fairing (which is supplied as is) without a mounting kit. I can mod stuff to a degree but my question is will these marry up with just some fettling or am i way off? Have a look and let me know please. And as a second question - are there Batwing fairings available for uni fit with mounting hardware?

    have a look at https://memphisshades.com/ they do all sorts of types of fairings and are all bolt on, no messing.... I had one on my Road King, as dis Rick (ticktok) lovely bit of kit and not overly expensive IMO. I believe you can buy through the likes of custom chrome etc..

    Got a Memphis shades fairing for mine that I use on longer trips, it's quick release and good quality
    Time is precious, waste it wisely.

    Am i going about this the right route?

    I had a Memphis Shades QD batwing on my old CVO Road King. It was a great bit of kit. I got it from Phil at Fatboyz Diner. It looked great when it was painted up.



    I still have the protective storage bag for it if anybody wants to make me an offer for it?

    Hi Tony.

    Have you tried Ebay ?

    Below is a link to a search for Batwing fairings, maybe there's one on here.
    Hope this helps.

    Re: Am i going about this the right route?

    Thanks for all your input fellas - ive spent a long time trawling the net. I have one-off bars and a custom light so could never get a clear answer from suppliers re fitting. "as far as im aware" as a reply dosent cut it for the money IMO. As a compromise im now likely to go for a Dart classic or piranha flyscreen. Ive got some risers to fit shortly and will measure against the dart sizing and go from there!

    Just to revitalise my above post - has anyone used or are using a Dart Classic or Pirahna screens? The supplier is actually able to answer my questions for a change, I realise they are small screens but would appreciate some feedback from any users out there. Thanks.
