Tsukayu fairing on a Vstar 950

Anyone have the Tsukayu fairing on their VStar 950...looking for actual review and thoughts...if you don't have one no need to respond with other suggestions...just fact finding on the Tsukayu and want to get owners opinion on fitment, versatility and especially access to ignition switch....pictures seem to suggest its gonna be extremely hard to put the key in and out each time with limited space between it and the handlebars.

Also curious on the quality of the speakers they provide.

Thanks in advance to any Tsukayu owners for their thoughts.

I would be interested too.
Have the Batwing styled fairing on my wish list.
Tsukayu and Memphis Shades seem to be the obvious choices.
Tsukayu does include the mounting kit and a windshield which MS does not.

I had a 2009 950 with the Tsukayu fairing that was installed by the previous owner. He said it was a pain to get to the key, so he relocated the switch. That being said, it was a nice fairing, had the stereo installed when he bought it. To me, the speakers were ok, but they were 4 years old when I got the bike. Just installed a fairing on my 2012 950ct (bought it new). I hated the stock windshield. There are alternative fairing's out there.

I own the Batwing, but on a different bike. Very good fit and finish, and I love the Spoiler windshield.

Don't think there are many stereo options for the Memphis Shades Batwing tho..

The Memphis Shades has no place to mount a stereo.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/22315699187...m=223156991878 with 4 1/2 inch spacers mounted perfect to my stock windshield mount using the brackets and hardware that came with the fairing.

I put the MS batwing on my 650. No place for a stereo though. Reason for going with MS is because of their customer service and I knew it was quality. With the TSU I was nervous about the product and customer service if something went wrong. Regarding the speakers, you can upgrade 6x9 speakers for fairly cheap. I had a stereo on my 650 mounted to the handlebars that were very loud and did great. BUT, now that I use a SENA and not a stereo on my new bike, it is much better. Sound quality is improved, and you can answer phone calls and use voice commands from your phone. Just my $.02, I would get whichever faring you feel comfortable getting w/o a stereo and get a SENA for your music.

A little late to the party Pete but for what it's worth I installed on last winter on my 09 950.

Pros:
Good Construction
Fits as advertised
Looks awesome on the bike (IMHO)
All stainless hardware.
Decent Stereo and Speakers
Tsukayu are great to deal with. awesome customer service. I lost a bolt(completley my fault) I aske them for just that bot and the sent me all the nuts and bolts install kit...free of charge !!)

Cons:
Yamaha's placement of the ignition key is not ideal for this fairing(order a new $25.00 ignition from ebay) and installed it in the fairing
I would find the fairing moved a little to much for my liking, so I added a frame around the stereo and speakers (similar to a Harley). This also incorporated my ignition mount.

Would I do it all over again...Hell Yeah.
Love my Tsukayu faring.
