Anyone have a cafe shield on their 900 also HID ?

New to the forum, my 2012 custom se hasn't even been delivered yet but i had a few questions for you guys. First anyone using a cafe windshield on their 900? How well does it block the wind? Any pics would be nice too.
Second, u guys have a top reccomended HID kit for the 900. Thanks

Thumbs up

Just got word that my MS bullet fairing has arrived at the local dealers. I haven't picked it up yet so can't comment but am hopeful it will look as good as the pic on a Vulcan 900 SE on their web site [link below] i also ordered the black mounting kit.
will try and post some pic's as bike progresses but i believe there is one in the pic's section of this forum. maybe try a search within pic's.
Cheers

I had one, looks great and allows storage between it and the bars, like a big glove box, for a jacket or sweatshirt. as far as function, it does block some wind, but very little. If you are 5' 10" or shorter it should work fine.

these are some pics i took before the actual install ... more of a mock up. The shield is more like sport bike shield, relieves some wind stress, relaxes your wrists, and makes your head like a bobble head .... but it does look cool.





As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

That looks awesome, does that kit have a particular name. I was looking on Ebay also and saw alot of different ones. Also, how long/difficult was the install?

I have the national cycle flyscreen. It takes just enough wind off my chest.

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.
