Default XR Bullet shields?

Anyone know of someone who makes a bullet shield for the XR?

I've messaged this guy already about this one, but if you go to the last page on this thread, you'll see kind of along the lines of what I'm thinking.

IMO I do not like the way the headlight sticks out. I wish that someone made one similar but it reached out to the end of the headlight. Maybe a "Bob Dron" Style would look better?

Yeah. That's kind of been my thoughts all along as well. I'm hoping someone made a bullet style that fit, but I'm not holding my breath. Maybe I"ll have someone fab one up. Or, for the first time ever, give laying glass or something a try. Only to eventually give up and see that it looks like hell and ultimately pay someone who knows what they're doing to do it. lol

maybe i am one of the rare few, but i like the Bob Dron fairing on the Arlen Ness XR (last pic)... when I contacted them about the mounting brackets, they even said that I would have to come up with something custom. its one of the reasons I am still searching out a set of factory mounting brackets for our XR windshields.. I want to be able to swap it back to the factory windshield without having to screw up the one i have in case i don't like how it rides...

you got your jesus on the dashboard, the devil's under my hood. you're takin' down to legal, i'm pulling it up to no good.
god is your co-pilot, i let satan ride shotgun, you pay a toll to get to heaven, but on the road to hell there's none..... \m/ \m/

I know you don't need a whole windshield but I was able to score a medium height OEM XR windshield with brackets for under $150 new. Lots of dealers getting rid of Victory parts, found mine on Amazon from a dealer in the midwest.

I plan on keeping my XR for a long time and figured I had better start putting back parts that may be hard to find and the windshield was at the top of my list. I wasn't paying the $599 some places still want for it but for $150 I was sold.
