Thanks to photo bucket dump. I'm having troubles finding pics of batwings on 650 customs.
Trying to find out what works best and still looks good.
Anyone with pics and opinions please chime in. Thanks

Here's a couple of pics I took in Feb - the batwing is good enough to ride in +5ºC temps for an hour - I added the Memphis Shades fork deflectors and painted them gloss black to match the fairing - it cuts out just about all the wind except for a bit over the top of the windshield - a little ducking down and I'm looking through the glass and no turbulence or wind noise.

This week I'll try and get a few more pics emphasizing the batwing.

Also added the lower deflectors to the bottom of the three holes in the batwing - this all went together at the initial install so don't know if either is needed or not but for the extra $100.00 or so I figured it was just as easy to do it without experimenting.

My ride is a 2015 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic but as I understand it the same model Memphis Shaded batwing fits all the years including the 1100 series.

Thanks How's it do on the freeway.
Excellent - I've had it up to 130 kph ( 80mph) and it is really comfortable - only issue I have is a little turbulence at the top of my head at 130 kph and that disappears with a little slouching.

I have the 12" windshield and it would be perfect with a 13" if they made one.

I'm 5'10" with a 30" inseam

At 80 kph (50 mph) no turbulence and no wind or noise so unless you do a lot of highway driving it is exceptional especially for the price.

Not to hi-jack this thread, but ....

I have a 2000 Road Star. I do not see that they came from the factory with a batwing fairing. So is there an issue putting one on? If not, besides Memphis Shades, any other recommendations?

Found several on flea bay. Most all use the same windshields. All depends on the quality. Price. And with or with out stereo cut outs. You'll still need mounts. None come with mounts

Take your pick of the options..

Alot will use the OEM windshield mounts to make installation easier..and alot will have stereos or be precut for stereos and speakers.
