Default Victory XR fairing

I know there is one on this sight using the Vic fairing on the XR. Anyone else?

I was in the process of ordering my second Cee Bailey windshield today to try to get something that resembles wind protection without bolting a thousand pieces to the front of my bike. Let's just say that my customer service results at Cee Bailey were less then desirable. So that led me to a "screw it" moment and a call to Kate at Honda Toledo East for fairing pricing. She wasn't in, so now I have some more research time.

Thoughts on the fairing? BTW, I like the look and eventually was more than likely heading in that direction anyway.

I love it. It's a whole new bike. Adds some width to the front matching the ass end. Certainly is a head turner. Still get some wind but no buffeting.

That looks really good. Is that the stock windshield height? Like I said, I haven't looked into this a whole lot yet, but I like what I've seen so far.

Yes that's the shield that comes with the fairing.
I love my fairing, but did have to add fork mounted lowers, and that fixed the low pressure updraft buffeting from under the fairing. I put a CB streetglide shield on mine that I modified to work. And yes, I was pissed when I delt with them this time. Ordered online,changed order a few days later,was told that I would be put to the back of the line! I wasn't pleased with the original wait, nor the additional wait either!

i had 7 jurock build a windshield to my specs.yes it is bigger
than stock and i had them make a little larger lowers but it
flat out works.--irv

air goes around me.nothing hitting me in the chest.
i tried vic mid height, 22" cee baileys,both w/factory
lowers. sucked. 7J was the only one who would build one
to spec.nice people too.

Great information guys. I think I'm going to take the plunge. CB really turned me off to the point that my wife said "do what you want" before I even asked. We normally spend the $$ on her bike. LOL.

So I saw Street Glide windshield mentioned. Does that mean that any Harley Electra Glide type windshield will work with some slight dremel mods? Not sure I can give up my tinted windshield.

The Ultra windshields work with some trimming, and widending the holes in the bottom. It's pretty easy, I have a 4" tinted windscreen on mine and I love it.

I dont have a good pic with the street glide shield on, but yes, I got the CB dragon? I think, 9" set it in the slot for the shield, took a sharpie marked where to cut( took the whole bottom off 1 1/4") marked the holes drilled them out (slowly) with tape on the shield the whole time as not to scratch it. Easy as that! Took more time sanding the new bottom edge than anything else. Oh and it's dark, looks meaner thanshit!
