Question Best batwing for my 1700 Classic LT? In CANADA

Any other Canadians out there that have installed a batwing on their 1700 Vulcan Classic LT?

I'm looking for advice on where to buy, which one fits best (Or even just fits- the Classics are hard to find accessories for), and pros and cons of different models.
I do want it to have a stereo installed, either when purchased or easily added later. Again, what kinds do you recommend? Hog tunes? Other?

I'd love to hear your feedback folks!

Tsuyaki makes nice fairings My son has a Reckless which is nice. B A few others out there. I would recommend 6x9 speakers as you get more volume and better sound. The 5 1/4" are adequate...

I have been real happy with this fairing from the usa trailer store. You can order the stereo yourself and get better components.

Oohh I hadn't heard about the USA Trailer Store- thanks! I'll have to see if they'll ship to Canada. Nice looking fairing- fairly large too.

I have both the Tsukayu and the USA Trailer store fairings. Both are good fairings. Started with the Tsukayu without radio, had that for a couple of years. My wife wanted a fairing for her bike so moved to her honda and bought the USA Trailer version with radio. Very happy with both. I think I like the USA trailer better. Also cheaper. I have risers on the handle bars so had to fabricate to new brackets to get it to sit correctly without hitting the radio.

i was looking over at the Tsukayu. It looks great. Which windshield
is best suited for the 6 x 9, and is there any difference in turbulence.

It seems like a lot of work with USA Trailer, and didn't see any pictures with the 1700 classic lt with it, although it looks appetizing. I like the color you can pick with Tsukayu.
