950 fairing

Im thinking of adding a fairing to my 950 but I don't wanna just buy one from a store or site. Can't afford it anyways. Has anyone heard of any from other models/makers that will adapt etc? Nothing fancy. Just to block the wind and stuff.

Well , I've read a bunch here and decided to go with the Memphis Shades fairing and 12-inch windshield part, because I think it'll work and looks cool too than a regular windshield. It should arrive in a few weeks and I'll let you know if it works better than my stock 950 T windshield. Got the part numbers from Memphis shades site and bought all parts on Amazon (fairing, brackets and shield). Yeah, I paid 500 smackers, but hopefully it works for me. If the buffeting continues, folks on the forum say to get lowers, so I'll go that route.

I don't wanna drop that kind of money. I'd like a bullet fairing really.....I'd like to find a used one from another model/make for cheap and adapt it. Pics when you're done.

I've got one for you

Boob,

I've got a small windshield and mounting brackets I'd sell to you cheap. I put on the batwing fairing after going through a small and medium sized windshield. Let me know how much you want to spend and we can make a deal. I don't live too far from you here in Oklahoma shipping would be minimal. You would still need the hardware to mount the windshield to the brackets but this would get you 2/3 of the way there.

I'll post some pics so you can take a look. Everything is in perfect condition.

I appreciate the offer but I don't want a windshield. I don't like the look at all. I like a fairing just enough. I'll figure out what I want to do or I'll just save the money this season and buy a fairing next year.....I'm gonna watch fleabay, Greg's list, and swap meets and see what I come up with.

Thanks for letting me know

Thanks for letting me know. I love the batwing fairing and definitely recommend it. I changed the mounting screws to stainless steel over the plastic one's provided but other than that, no complaints.

Boob, if you run across a decent batwing for our 950's, please let me know. I've seen just a couple and like the look over the windshield. Dont need the one for the radio, etc. Just a clean look is all I'm going for, thanks.

The place I got my fairing has them but your probably looking around 900 bucks but that's complete with radio etc. Check out ebay, Ive seen fiberglass fairings on there for around 200 unfinished and no radio or speakers. Most of these bat wings will fit anything with the right mounting.
