Yes, the hole is as well, but the area surrounding is square.

Thanks! I had wanted the actual Ness fairing, but found out I'd have to replace my headlight with the 5 1/2" one, and rig up a mounting system anyhow. I figured I'd go a little less expensive and see if I liked the look before spending a ton of money.

bullet fairing

Hey Clicker, you were the reason I started looking at fairings. The new color looks great by the way.
I went with the bullet fairing and had it painted to match the bike.

That looks pretty sharp. I actually didn't like mine so much when it was all painted to match the bike lol. So off it went.

Oh well, $50 spent not such a big deal.

100% improvement. No wind on my chest and still wind in the face.
Couldn't be happier with the project.

Cool didn't see a part number for the vics. What part number did you get for the fairing and brackets?

I couldn't find black bolts and nuts, so I tried painting them. They didn't stay black very long.

Looks good! I actually just saw one of these on a Judge. The bike was painted orange and the fairing painted to match...didn't care for it. This arrangement in black, works...
