Memphis Shade lowers installed today

I got my MS lowers today and installed them. Very nice quality and quick install. I need to adjust them a little more to clear my crash bar safely but the skeeters were biting.
Can't wait to see how much wind buffeting they eliminate.

Where did you buy them from?

I think you'll be amazed how much wind they deflect. I never thought they would be as efficient as there are. I liked them because they looked so very cool. You'll have to be sure and post how they worked for you. A pic would be awesome!

If ordered remember the mounting hardware and wind shields are sold separate. They can be clear or in numerous colors.

I am still uncertain if I'll put the windshield back on. The only reason I would is to wear a half helmet.

So I finished adjusting and took a ride. Wow, what a difference. The wind buffeting around my ears is greatly reduced. The blast of air coming up the front of my body into my face is probably 90% reduced.

I thought the 900 LT came with a light bar?

Nope. It's an option, though. Check Kaw's website.
