Front fairing for a 950T ?

I'd like to find a nice front fairing for my 950T, but I'm not crazy about the Memphis Shades batwing or many of the others that don't have an inner fairing. There are some on EBay, but most are for HD. A few say they'll work on a Road Star. I'm wondering if the mounting hardware for that one would work or how difficult it would be to come up with some hardware for the HD models. Also, I'm wondering about the size of those fairings on my bike...meaning is it possible those fairings for the Road Star and HD's might be to big?? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I agree

The ms batwing kinda has a funny look to it. I haven't seen one in person. I don't know if you could fab up brackets to make one work that is another brand. My ms windshield on my 950 mounts on where the signal bracket is mounted.

If the 1300 and 950 share a front end, then that fairing should work.

Shonuff, that's what I was thinking, but I don't know for sure if they're the same. Does anyone else? I saw where someone had put a Harley fairing on one somewhere, but not sure how they got it mounted. It looked really good though.

Bikebandit.com shows the fork assemblies are different part numbers. Not sure what the difference is.

Have you checked tsukayu?

Tsukayu offers full-fairings for the 950T with stereo and speakers for about $800.
Reckless Motorcycles offers a fairing for the V-STar 1300 that uses the OEM tourer windshield hardware for mounting the fairing, the 950and 1300 use the same windshield mounting hardware.

So, here's what I did, prior to getting my 1300T in Jan 14 I actually purchased the Reckless Motorcycles V-Star 1300 full-fairing(no stereo/speakers for $350) to install on my 950T and it mounted right to the OEM windshield bracket.

The only issue would be the headlight opening. The headlight of the 1300 is much larger than the 950 so there would be about a
1"-2"gap around the headlight.
Of course that fairing is now on my 1300T and my wife's 950T has a MS Batwing.

buffeting ?

I see that the new HD models that come with a batwing now have an oval vent hole in the middle on the fairing. Is that to prevent buffeting? If so, would it help a MS batwing? Could you neatly modify a MS batwing?

Thanks for all the info gents. Shonuff, I did check those, but they really like their stuff $$$. Bassm1 I will check the reckless site. That sounds doable and for a reasonable price. I wonder if you could put a larger headlight on a 950 to fill out the space.

martymcfly...the vent in the new HD fairing is to lessen the buffeting and from what I've been told it works like a charm. My buddy just purchased a new Street Glide and he said at 90mph down the highway, the bike stays true with little head movement. Never thought about slicing into another manufacturer's fairing, could be dangerous
