Default Vegas Memphis Shades Fairing

I know this question comes up from time to time because I've asked it myself. I posted some quick pics of a Memphis Shades fairing on our '06 Vegas 8 Ball. Easy install. I just bolted it on and called it a day. I haven't tweaked any of the mounts for better position, better air flow or whatever. It is the wife's bike and she says it is too cold to try it out....I will have to wait. When I took it for a ride, I was pretty impressed though. Even with the next to nothing windshield, I got a nice breeze in the saddle not a hurricane force wind. I know it's working well because between 45mph and 75, the air in my face is fairly consistent.

I didn't take time to take pro pics, just shot some so those of you who want to make the purchase can get a better look at the mounts and the fairing itself. If you want to see it in more detail, stop by.

Looks really good! Can you put a stereo and/or speakers in it?

Not the traditional speakers like the ones that go behind the grips cause there isn't an inner fairing but I had speakers and an MP3 player on mine that I had on my old Vstar. Just attached them to existing bracket hardware . Cheers

I put my fairing on like that and the only issue I had was that the mounts would rotate and the fairing wyld end up in a more laid down position when I hit speed

The part of the mounts that go on the forks on my Vstar had a thin piece of rubber in the radiuses so they were really tight on there. That fairing would have broken before it moved on the forks. Thumbup

I've never had anything like this on a bike so I am interested to see if it adjusts itself as time goes by. Seems like a pretty basic but sturdy set up. The wind protection is really nice. I'm used to bikes with fairings and this particular fairing, even with the short windshield really works well on the Vegas.

As soon as finances allow , I am putting one on my KP . I loved the one on the old Vstar . It really keeps the hurricane force winds off your chest and face if shield is tall enough. The 9" shield is good for my height (5'6"). I had the 5" on my Vstar but had to tuck down a few inches to get the wind to go over my head.

I ordered mine from Victory Only online.


5 inch shield black Item# 2310-0215

#2330-0023 Vegas batwing fairing

Trigger Lock Mounting Kit vegas Item# 2321-0161


You need all three parts to make the full fairing. The fairing itself should not be different. The windshield is, well, the windshield. Get whatever size you want as well as color. The mounting kit can be had in black or chrome. My guess is that it is the same mounting kit for a 2011 although a quick check with www.victoryonly.com will tell you for sure. They list up to 2010 but I don't know if they just need to update or there is a different mounting bracket.

Just to make things really easy for you, go here.... http://www.victoryonly.com/ACCESSORI...iring_kit.html
