Default Batwing for a Boardwalk

Ordered up a Memphis shades locking plate kit for the other Victory that shares the same style/size front forks, as Memphis shades does not sell a locking kit or batwing for a Boardwalk and after talking to their rep I got the impression they don't plan on making one anytime soon.
Anyhow I have a batwing that I had on my old 09Yam. 950-T and after test fitting it I belive it should fit.
Will know more by late afternoon saturday, as I have to put in my morning shift at the Veterans home before I can work on the bike.
Will try and post photos of either suggest or failure.

A couple more shots.
This is the Memphis shades I had purchased for the 09 yamaha 950-T I traided in on this bike.
Need to cut the wind screen down about 4 inches so I can see over it instead of looking though it.

Before you cut that windshield down, look into either lowering the spedo or replacing it with a smaller unit from Dakota Digital. Then the fairing will lay back more instead of standing straight up and down. Not only will it look much better (imo) but if you do it, you will want the taller shield.

Just a thought. I went throuh this with my 05 KP that had a Wide Open Customs fairing on it.

Looks good.

The faring has been adjusted so it is tilted in as far as the mounts will let it, that is why there is such a wide gap between the faring and the headlight.
I tried mounting the Memphis shades tunes system I have for this batwing but it covers speedo.
But thanks for the heads up on a smaller speedo, I will check into it.
