Stealth Batwing

Has anyone purchased and installed on of these "Stealth" batwings from The USA Trailer Store. I received mine about two weeks ago and for the price it looks really good out of the box. Their website says you must use a Yamaha OEM windshield installation kit to installed it but I am thinking you have got to be able to find an after market installation kit for it. I'm trying to save some money but I can not find out hardly any information about there about this batwing. At this point it looks like I might as well have spent a little extra for the Memphis shade batwing as there are tons of kits out there for the memphis shades batwing priced WAY lower than the Yamaha OEM windshield kit. Any and all help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The advantage of the OEM windshield kit, provided it comes with the lock, is that it really is extremely easy to remove and reseat the windshield, and the kit doesn't look ugly at all. Actually, you don't even notice it, just a few bobbin type fasteners, while the Memphis one leaves a lot of iron behind on the fork assembly when you remove the shield.

The lock in principle is the same lock as the one used for the bags and sissybar, which are just as easily removable if you have the locks installed, so one key fits all.

I had the Memphis kit on the XVS1300, and the OEM kit I have on my current ride, the XV1900. I prefer the kit on the latter. The Memphis one isn't bad at all, but the OEM version handsomely beats it, if you'd ask me.

Personally, I'd save up a little, and go OEM in this case - with the lock option .

Kind regards, Wim
