Dunno, but the VN2K problem is it is rather small in production numbers. There is not an abundance of choices in things that require specific fitment to the model.

I have the Cobra Fatties, but I bought them used with a couple scuffs on them from someone else's tip over insurance replacement.

I got the Fatty because it goes all the way across at the bottom. My first V2K was totaled by a clean out cover that popped up and cracked my crankcase. It wouldn't have happened with the Fatty. If your bike's a '04, you'll have to relocate the Rectilator®. That's the reason they say it's for '05 and later.

Bill, ever since that happened to your bike, I've been paranoid about those stupid things, I give em a wide birth now I told the wife about the situation, so she does the same while riding her bike

[ame]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KYFGGAO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[/ame] I bought these, the only problem was that the left side hardware is weak. I had to buy some longer bolts and make spacers for it. Maybe I just got some bad bolts with it?
