I don't know if the windshield brackets are the same as the fairing brackets. the fairing is held to the brackets by 4 bolts. the brackets have the trigger lock which then mounts to the fork clamps.

I don't know if the windsheild brackets are the same as the fairing brackets. The fork clamps may be different as well. I haven't seen the hardware for a windshield. The exhaust is a D&D Fatcat.

Thanks

Sorry for the delay in writing, but hadn't been on the forum in a few days. As for the wobble, the only time I experienced wobble that was bad enough to slow me down was when I first put it on and was riding I-10 east of Tucson, AZ in an area with several waddies and caught some crosswinds. I dropped from 75 down to 65 until I got through them and then picked it back up. I also think that part of that was also the fact that I was not used to having the fairing and how it felt on the bike at highway speeds. I absolutely love it now that I am used to it. Although I still need to check my fall away because it just feels a little loose (just hadn't had the time lately to check it). I think you will be really happy with the batwing once you get it on the bike. I have to tell you that it is great to be able to ride in temps over 100 and not feel like I am standing behind a jet engine.

h2oV, that is one AWESOME looking bike. I really like how you streamlined the fairing to the bike. Very creative bike.

Chiefclifton;

Does the batwing just bolt up to the trigger locks??

My fall away will be checked at the dealer as I am still under warranty and my front brake rotors will be replaced as well.

We are getting ready for a 1000k tour thru the midwest and I'd like to get the batwing on prior to our departure in mid-August. I also am putting on a small tour pack along with a solo back-rest - gonna have some stuff "fabbed up" and see how it goes.

I'll post some pics when we are done

Thanks again

Tom

The trigger lock mounting kit bolts to the fairing just like a Memphis Shades windshield. Overall, it only took me about 10-15 minutes to get it all assembled and on the bike (including putting together the windshield, trim and Tri-pouch). Very easy setup. I also love the fact that I can just remove the entire system in a matter of minutes when I want to run the bike without it and then slap it back on when I do. I haven't went with a tour pack yet, but have thought about it a few times. I am going to check my fall away myself using the instructions in the forum. It should have been checked with the bike had its 10,000 mile service, but I want to check it myself.

Rod, The difference between the RG and eGlide fairing is huge. A solidly mounted fairing never shakes, never wobbles. Mechanically, and aerodynamically, a far superior design. Yes, it costs more, but is well worth the effort. THe simple solution is to buy 2! Joe

This head on pic was taken last week in Santa Fe, as I was heading out into rain all the way back to Albuquerque.

Joe;

Two bikes would be the way to go....but one of them would be a V Rod bobber! and the other, would be with some kinda fairing on it, But doggone Danni's pic looks good with that bat wing on it.

Thank you for the input!

Tom

Hi there,
What type of bat wing is on your bike? Cost? Is it a quick release?

Thx Matt

Mine is a Kenday. Had to make my own mounts. V-Mod has a Memphis Shades Batwing that I believe includes the brackets.

I read that 3-Olive was getting new wheels, and made an offer for her old ones, which she accepted. Tyson was doing the work, so I had him , after pulling the bearings, ship them to Willy Shiney in Calif ([email protected]) for chroming. They were delivered a while later and are incredible. I had to take the "V-Ultra" in anyway, as I managed to break it in Kansas City, for the third time in a row . This time I had it on a trailer! Seems that the high pressure nipple out of the fuel tank was apparently slightly cracked, until I messed with it, and made it really (an incredible fan of gasoline) leak.
So they installed a new tank flange, and the new wheels. Sure is purdy.



The bullet hole decal was earned on the previous trip to Kansas City:







Of course, I'm biased.

83,000 miles on the bike.
