Anyones bike come with a windsheild from dealer?

I recently bought my bike and it has a windshield mounting setup on it. It has gray rubber grommets and the bracket goes under the headlight mounting bracket. I am trying to figure out if it was a stock shield(is there even such a thing) or an add on. If I can figure out what it is maybe a can buy a shield without having to buy the whole setup if I don't have to. And would anybody know if another brand will matchup if it is a Kawi windsheild>

only vulcans I know that come with a stock kawasaki windshield are the LT's. If you have a stock classic they don't come with a windshield(I have an '06 900 classic,but added the big Kawasaki windshield/brackets) It would be hard to tell what aftermarket windshield set up you have without pics...maybe someone here could identify the bracket/grommet setup you described from them.Good Luck!

The mounts I have are identical to these on this bike.
I already Pm'd him and he said it was on there when he bought it.

That looks like a Memphis Shades setup.

I would suggest taking good photos of the mounts on your bike and submitting them to the support folks at Memphis Shades to see if it is one of their mounts and if it is, ask what you'd need to complete the mount and which of their windshields would work with it.

If you're thinking that you'd like a fairing, you could also ask them if your mount would work with one of their fairings.

That is indeed a Memphis Shades Fats, Looks to be 21 inch wind screen and trigger lock mounting hardware. The Batwing Fairing uses the same mounting. Have one on my bike.

Those are Memphis Shades Trigger locks (just put those on my bike with a speed demon windshield). They list for about $142.00 so if you have them great deal as you can mount just about all the Memphis Shades windshields & bat wing.

Have to agree. Memphis Shades trigger lock setup. Have the same gradient black windshield on my bike.

I know the voices aren't real but they say some pretty interesting things!

After looking at the Memphis shades site I believe you guys are correct. That helps alot as I don't have to buy a mount. Fyre I don't have the windshield never got it when I bought the bike I was told it was broken in as accident. Still after looking I would like to have the plates that mount to the shield itself but I will run with what I have. I didn't know the batwing fairing used the same setup. I wasn't really thinking of that fairing but I can see it if I take longer rides/vacation on the bike. Thanks guys for the input.
