I've been looking for a fairing for my 08 V900, I have looked at about 1000 pictures of the V900 and haven't seen any with the Cafe style fairing. Anyone know if they even make one for the 08 V900? I really don't want the wind screen, It's more for looks than anything. I think it would add more of a sporty look so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would be grate-full.

And I would like to get a license plate relocate and move the plate off the rear and put it on the side. Anyone got any suggestions on a good quality mount?

Thanks again..

Here is a picture of a VN900 Custom with the Cafe OEM windshield.

For looks the Cafe is the way to go in my opinion (for the vn900c).

I've had mine for about four months and the Pros are:
1-Looks
2-Takes off all that pressure from your chest
3-Because of less pressure you hands will apprecaite it
4-For some reason it eliminates the engine nosises to berly noticeable
5-Keeps those bugs away from you
6-You still fill that precious wind in your hair if any left :)

Cons:
1-I wear contacts and the shield does not provide all the protection against wind as I would like and therefore my contacts dry very fast.

I'm thinking soon I will sell mine to buy a bigger one but gotta prepare my self first for the new looks... PM me if you're interested.

Thats pretty close to what I'm looking for but I wan't the one that goes around the head lamp just like the old school cafe racers do. I see them on the older Harley's . I'm starting to think I'm gonna have to have someone make it for me or modify one. So the search goes on.

Thanks for the input..

Here's a picture of it on a Ducati:



Have you considered Memphis Shades Batwing or an Arlen Ness Bob Dron's Fairing?

Yeah...me too. I had to get the first season on bluray...can't wait for the next. I basically missed the whole first season so looking forward to the next.
Same here, I missed the very first season but seen the second and can't wait for the 3rd.
