Windshield Logo

Wondering if anybody has come across a good price on the logo to go on the windshield. Mine has no logo, and I would like to get one. Or maybe somebody have a shield that got damaged and the logo is still ok.

If you're referring to the Vulcan medallion that comes on the LT, you can occasionally find them on Ebay. As for a good price, I haven't seen any that I thought were reasonable. I can't remember the exact price for a replacement from Kaw, but IMO it's way too expensive for what you get.

I see they're $56.95 on the Kaw Accessories Website but Kawasaki-Sickness Ebay store has them for $43.69 (+ $8.95 shipping). See here.

pretty cool ebay store. Thanks for sharing. I guess that windshield emblem encompasses the whole metal chrome strip eh? I got the Kawasaki backrest and luggage rack but would like a vulcan medallion to glue or drill onto the back of the backrest. It's just begging for one.

Checkout this for the back rest. Way better then a logo. http://ironsinthefire.webs.com/apps/...otoid=24487413
I want it, but it is made for the Kawi backrest, I have the Cobra and the shape is different. One of the members on here made it, Waterboy 13.

Thanks Jace, appreciate the tip, sorry I don't have the Cobra style for you. Is the Cobra you have shorter than stock OEM for the Classic/LT. How popular is the Cobra over OEM, any idea?

I am not really sure if it is shorter or not. Like we discussed in our PM earlier last month it is a different shape. It looks pretty close in height from looking at pics. Mine is totally not one of the shorties that Cobra makes.

As far as popularity, I have no idea. The Cobra are about $150 cheaper if you paid MSRP from both manufactures.

I removed the logo from the windshield on my LT, didn't care for the look of it when I bought the bike used (6700 miles) . I was surprised that the badge is just a piece of molded plastic, not really very substantial at all. When I saw it for $50+ on the Kaw website when I decided I wouldn't attached it to my garage wall with drywall screw through the badge.

The windshield badge from my LT is 6 1/2" wide by 3 3/4" tall. The sissy bar badge is 5" wide by 3 1/8" tall.
