Another Lowers Option - MS Batwing

I have a MS Batwing and was considering lowers or fork deflectors that would be a nice addition
to the BW that would cut down the buffeting, but not look all gawdy and such.

Anyone out there have lowers/fork deflectors with a Batwing? How they working out for you ?

Thanks

Had them on the machine for years.
Yes, lowers are the cats meow with either a windshield or fairing.

Your BW kinda resembles mine.

Also - you think I could use either the MS Lowers or the fork deflectors
and achieve the same result?

MS lowers are kind of abbreviated in size.
I'd look around for some of those stainless valu lowers.
You may even find some in good condition, for sale on this forum.

looks like the Stainless Valu lowers aren't made any more. The company who made them went out of business.

Rather have the chrome version, but looks like thats not an option.

Wish MS would make a chrome version with their quick connect mounts.

Thanks

Check with J&P cycles in Daytona, FL.
They sell polished metal deflectors.

Any idea if these fork deflectors will fit a 17 or 18 C50 w/OEM light bar and windshield?

Well, I ordered some. Dennis Kirk has the mounts that fit the 2018 C50T. They don't list any of the fork deflectors fitting my bike but they do have the ones w/ the part number listed in an earlier post so I got those. We will see when they come in around the 18th. Will post results.

They work. Big difference in the buffeting. Looks like a good purchase.
