In 2005 Suzuki consolidated the Volusia and other lines into a new Boulevard line and renamed it a C50. The big difference in the C50 is fuel injection.

They are.
Vol is 7" and C50 is 9".
If your looking at getting the Memphis Shades wing, for a proper fit you have to move the headlight forward 2". Otherwise your going to have a big gap at the top of the headlight and the fairing will be out in front of the headlight by a couple inches as well.

This fairing would not look good on your Vol.



This pic shows it mounted on a C50 and the fairing overhangs the head light as it is. On a vol that over hang will be double this. There is a kit to move your headlight forward but due to the smaller diameter you will most likely have an air gap around it.
