Hey there. I just got a new batwing fairing off ebay for 122.50 plus 33.00 shipping. Not bad right? It was primered and came with basic mount and a windshield. I painted it with PlastiDip to match the rest and I couldnt be happier!!! Now with my exhaust mod and the fairing, All the Harley guys actually take notice and wave. Its kinda cool. Took me a couple days to manufacture some custom mounts and make sure it was solid. For 150.00 I think it turned out perfect. What do ya'll think ??

Fairing fitment

Very nice! How do you know what types would fit our bikes?
I was watching only fairings with the headlight opening of 8.5 inches. Some are only 7.5. Then I just had to make some custom brackets. Just about anything will work with some ingenuity and a little fabrication skills. or an extra 150.00 for the bracket kit for our bike. :wayhappy::evil:

Fairings or windshields will cause wind buffeting; and the short answer is, build or purchase a pair of lowers and those will divert around 90% of the buffeting.

wind and buffeting

How does it do with wind and buffeting ? I had heard once that fairings actually are worse than windshields in that regard, so I'd like to hear what you find.

I do notice a difference. It has reduced the buffeting by about 30%. I am going to order an aerodynamic National cycle or Klock Werks 6.5" flared windshield. and maybe some lowers if that doesnt do enough. But I am very happy so far. And my old lady notices a difference as well.

Ok, so I just got my gently used HD Wind Splitter windshield from ebay. 40.00 plus shipping. It is fantastic. I think that I still want to get a Klock Werks one, cause I hear that they work even better even though they are very similar. I may also get one about 2" taller as well. but we shall see. So far though, I love it.
