A little help please. Memphis shades Batwing and Bikerhaven Batwings look identical to me on the ads. Are they the same thing, different. Is one better than the other. I find MS Batwing on ebay for $443 and Bikerhaven for $369. Any big difference???

It is a Memphis Shades. The difference is, it comes with the Mounting Kit and the Windshield.


Look at Memphis Shades website:

Batwing: $229
Mounting Hardware: $138
Windshield: $30 (up to $70)

So.. adding that up is $397 (Considering $30 windshield - $437 considering $70 windshield)


All three for $369 isnt a bad deal.

Dude, go to the memphis shades webisite. They sell em on there for, I believe $270, last I checked. And I think they come with a 5" windshield, so your good to go on that, unless you want a taller one. I opted to go for the full fairing with stereo vs just the batwing. Theres an ebay store that sells them for 6x9s or 5" speakers, both for under $300.

I got my MS Batwing from Biker haven. The 1st one was one a 750 ace the 2nd was for my 1300R I love them. 12 in shield.
They were a great company . I ordered they shipped at the time I bought and to this date I believe they were cheapest around.
When you buy the MS Batwing kit from them you get windshield, mounting brackets and fairing.
would do BS. with them again.

Believe me you are probably going to want to go taller than 5''. Lots of folks who went with 5 are now wanting taller. I have a 12 inch and I love it. Probably a 9 would be good too. Most people still experience lots of buffeting with a 5 inch.... maybe some don't.

Ok , can I still use my fat fork tubes with the Memphis shades fairing? Do I order the one for an R model or will that not work?
thanks

Memphis Shades mounts are made specific to the model of the bike. The mounts for the C and the R/S are completely different. Make sure you get the correct mounts.
