    Welcome to the board Gilles.
    There are several manufactures. Click on the search button above and type in fairing. You'll find all you could hope to know.

    You can even add a Harley batwing found at any motorcycle salvage yard or eBay. Then go to the "How To;Step-by-Step" board for how to attach it.

    Welcome to the board!
    Bookmark or save to your favorites folder, these websites, http://www.vtxoa.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=77
    This is the NEW VTXOA Garage, a sister site to this message board and contains all your How-to/Tips/Tricks/Why’s and links to other helpful sites for your new VTX. http://www.bareasschoppers.com/ A fellow VTX Riders site that has many write-ups on “How-To” do work on the VTX. Also, for you 1300 guys http://vtx1300tips.com/VTX1300TIPS.htm another fellow VTX Riders site.

    There is also a helpful Search icon in the users Toolbar just under the VTXOwners Association banner
    Click the “Search” drop down and select “Advanced Search”

    Now, enter your keywords and select a single forum to search in

    Select 1, and only 1 "Forum" to search in at a time, or at all.
    For example, "Best airbox" I would only search in the "1800 Tech Board"

    That's the basic way, you can limit further by using some of the other "Drop-Down" menu's like if you know the thread you are looking for is only a week or so old, etc....

    The purpose of the "Search" is to offer a member the opportunity to research his/her question better. There is so much information from past threads that you may never see because that member is no longer here, or doesn't see your new post, or just won't respond to the same question. So use it to your advantage and enjoy the board! View this funny and informative film about posting and searching…

    Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the forum. At the top of every board there are threads that are tagged as "Sticky" These threads are "Sticky" because they contain very important/valuable information about the VTX and everyone should read them.
    The thread at the top of the 1800 tech board called, "Air, Fuel, Motors..." will answer most of the performance questions...

    It's a tow hitch cover that was attached to the OEM cover.

    I'm in the process of fitting up a Harley batwing fairing. I was pretty worried about it at first, but basically following the write up on the hot to forum, it's been pretty easy. Probably the best bang for your buck in terms of fairing. If you don't like working on your bike, go with a memphis shades batwing for the cheapest, or one of the more expensive options for something nicer.

    Just took mine for a test drive today. So far so good, but still working on finalizing everything.

    Google Woody's fairing as another choice but HD's give you a very unique option


    VTX 1800R Custom, QQ drop bags/fender, HD Street Glide fairing, 8 speakers, Rockford Fosgate amp, Kenwood deck, 4 pc Ultimate seats, so much chrome it hurts....
