Default CC fairing on a Vegas 8 Ball

Has anyone used a CC fairing on a Vegas? I defiantly want wind protection and rather than going with Memphis shades or another manufacturer I'd look to stay with something manufactured for a victory.

I can't consider mixing between cross and cruisers except maybe the kingpin personally. I'd do a good windshield and call it done.

I tried with a cc fairing and there would be alot of fab work for mounts and it was too close to the bars how we had it. I went with a wide open custom and its bulky but does the trick and wasnt cost prohibitive to use

I just can't see having a windshield. I am going be going with a fairing. My problem is that I am extremely picky and not just any fairing is going to work for me. Thanks for the input but I know what I want.

Met a guy at a pizza place in Rhode Island who had a Cross Country fairing and hard bags on his Kingpin, so it is feasible on the steel frame bikes. He had gotten a lot of work done by Kyle at KMC, maybe a quick email to him could point you in the right direction.

Default Batwing

I've used the fly screen and rode cross country, now have the Batwing. Good protection, easy on and off. Trying to get a pic in my gallery

Anything is possible if you put in the time and effort it take to make it work, and especially if you are anal about things than it's best to do it yourself. no disrespect to hmd or withdoc but they would go about doing it the same way you would on your own. good luck!

I now have a pic of each in my gallery. The fly screen blocks most of the wind off your chest, no hand and limited head protection. The Batwing works really well for me, I did go with the med height screen and eliminated most of the buffeting. Good luck

Not trying to steal your thread but...I'd like to try a CC fairing on my CR...BuT..I only want the outer shell...no radio etc. [just like an empty batwing] But as i understand it, it is the inner shell that mounts it?
