Default 04 Kingpin bone stock........thinking batwing, thoughts?

Spent the evening taking bags and seats off to clean and wax under fender (serious build up under there) and other tins and plastics. Love the bike but considering some mods. Biggest is a batwing fairing. Not thrilled with the shield that came stock.

I have done a search and seen some pics, but curious if any new feedback on an 04 KP with 1 1/2 risers and installing a bat wing? Anyone?

Would look great with a batwing or other type fairing (wide open customs, etc...) A google image search with kingpin fairing will give you some ideas. Kingpin is very versatile. Although you may want to consider looking at a 2012 or 2013 CC as it is model year end and good d get a good deal possibly

I would like to do the same to my 04. Also thinking of the Memphis bat-wing fairing and possibly hard bags with a new rear fender to suit...seen some nice jobs out there.
New XC would be nice but it would means a new loan and lots more money spend. My 04 with stage one runs great but needs some customizing...

jbb01, I am thinking bikenut65 and I might be on a similar page. As soon as my youngest finishes 3 more years of college, I might be in the hunt for another bike, for now, making due is my motto. Thank you also for the google image idea. Found some great pics.

Bbob, great advice also, found something (batwing) pretty inexpensive on the Dennis Kirk site.

Also forgot to mention my 04 isn't bone stock as it does have mustang seats (a first for me, and I am loving them).

Thanks everyone.

Why not thrilled? My guess is buffeting? Try some lowers first. Even with a batwing, air will come up from under the tank and yank your head around. You'll want them even if you decide to go batwing. Might as well give them a shot before spending a bunch on a new fairing.

NJ8BALL-excellent pic and look I am trying to achieve with batwing at least. Your other mods are very nice.

Saddlebag, honestly no buffeting so far. I just really don't like the look of it and I am kind of a bigger guy. So maybe the batwing won't make my butt look big. LOL. More than anything, just a preference.

Wide Open Customs looks pretty good. These are of my old 05 KP.

I have a Wide Open Customs fairing for my Kingpin. I don't have it installed now, but if you look at my avatar, you can see it. It makes the bike look way better.And I love the wind management. I'm considering fabbing up some brackets to replace the Vic fairing I have on my Cross Roads with the WOC.
