900 LT lowers

HI folks,

I am convinced that I need lowers on my 2007 Vulcan 900 LT. The Kawy set is pretty pricey. I keep running into the name Edmunds but I can't figure out a way to contact him. I have seen a couple of good plans for home built. The price of aluminum is up so that isn't cheap either.

Any other manufactures out there?

I bought the Kaw OEM lowers at www.shopxps.com They are a Kawasaki/Yamaha dealer in NJ and they are by far the cheapest place online to buy OEM parts and acc. The lowers with them are $131 Check them out and let me know if I can help any further

I'm convinced I need lowers too. Thanks for that link pasnbyu, but I'm trying to find them listed on this site. Am I missing something? I followed the links, brought up the parts list for 2009 Vulcan 900LT but I don't see Lowers (or Windshields either for that matter) listed anywhere. I must be dense or it's just too early in the morning.

You might take a look at mine, have had lots of good feedback, big enough to do the job, chrome plates match windshield plates, very solid with good chrome and really reduces the "buffeting" to nil, especially for the passenger, wife loves them.

I picked up my Kaw lowers from eBay, at better than list. Yes, they are the most expensive, but imho, the best looking.

Say, those are nice looking! I especially like how they snug up to the windshield making a more complete barrier to wind. They look like they belong on the bike and now are definitely on my "short list" of things to get in the very near future! Thanks for the tip, Waterboy. You'll probably be hearing from me soon.

Vulcan 900 Lowers

You are welcome! Making the shield snug up against the windshield behind the turn signal certainly eliminates the wind through that gap that comes up around the tank, quite strange aerodynamics of the wind around and up from the tank on the 900, you honestly won't believe the difference, it was my first "creation" for my bike. You can hang your hand/arm down by your side and out and the wind doesn't blow it away! I've had a South Dakota "ringneck" pheasant bounce off mine at 45mph, saving my leg and did no damage to the lower or bike, they have caught many a bug and road debris from passing motorists. The adjustable feature will let you raise them as you raise the windshield if that is an issue. Coming soon is a "Windshield Tilt Mod Kit" with both vertical and rearward tilt option replacing the factory brackets on the windshield which should help with buffeting even more and make the windshield more pleasing to the eye by being in alignment with the forks. I will never have a bike without the lowers again. Thanks again, would love to be able to help (a displaced Minnesotan from Spicer!). Click on site photos to open more.

Are lowers really the answer? Depending on wind direction I get buffeting as low as 50mph. Over 60mph sometimes it gets unbearable. The problem I have is that I wear glasses with my full face helmet and when the helmet starts vibrating my glasses vibrate along with it. Makes me want to hurl. I'm 5'6" and have the wind shield as low as it will go. Still cannot see over the top of the wind shield. I was wondering if that was the problem. If lowers are the answer that would be great!

Will these lowers work with an OEM lightbar? It looks like they would mount behind one if it were there
