All set up, it's a GREAT deal.

Well worth it- I loved mine- best thing on the bike.

Are you going with a clear shield in place of the fairing?

You're not going to beat the quality of the Hoppe if you are staying with a full fairing.

Good luck- you should sell it fast @ that price.

Well, what's it coming off of? I've got a '05 N that's gettin' built in my head right now,and I'm leanin' in that direction. I like the style anyway,
and well you know....... Hmmmmmmmm. Interesting.

will it fit a 1300 C?
Yes, it will fit but you will probably want to get some shorter risers. It will fit with the stock C risers but you will have to mount it so that there is about a 1" gap over the headlight. With shorter risers (like the stock Retro ones) the fairing sits nice and tight (about 1/4") to the headlight.

Isn't the Hoppe fairing really the only way to go for a VTX? Others son't quite look right. Reaper put that Harley one on and it simply shook the bike at speed.

It shook yours so bad you had to change your shorts. Installation issue then with positioning? Too bad, that project you built was awesome. Maybe if it was purple.......

Its shook my bike at about 103 miles per hour, and I think I hit that speed about two times a year, but the guy that bought it found if he trimmed about 1/8 inch off one side bracket it went away. He had it wind tested up to 130 miles per hour, and had no problem at all. He still has it on his bike, and loves it bro but, there are others now. Here are four in just two min that I found, and I like two of them much better then the Hoppe one, but thats just an opinion. I like them because of the way they are set up for quick removal, even if you are going to keep it on all the time, it is nice to take it off fast and easy (No tool) to do cleaning or for maintance. If you dont do your own work on the bike, and you have to take it in to have it worked on, you will get charge a bunch more money to have them remove it to do work, like fork seals, steering steam check, bearings in the tripple tree, and I am missing other things but anyway most of the others are also less money. So you have opptions, you are not held hostage to just one company anymore bro. You could always make your own to, there is NOTHING more custom then one off parts.
