Looking for a 919 fairing?

I have a 2006 919 and I am looking for a small fairing because the wind and occasional rain on long trips gates to be a bit much.

I also want something that looks cool and wont disturb the look of the bike when riding local.

Any suggestions, pics and or feedback on your experience with one would be great.

Here is one I fond and curious if any one has seen or knows any thing about.

yamaha v max1200 carbon fibre bikini cowl 3 position

Thanks

check out the helpful 919s. there's givi, fabbri, the ebay specials of f-16 and f-18, honda oem (hard to find), and several others including a buell fabbed up to fit.

I got a Carbon Fiber Buell windscreen and the brackets to make it fit. Bought the windscreen off ebay for about $70 and the brackets from the local HD shop. I really like how it turned out! LOVE THE CF LOOK!

You can google Honda part #08R80-MCZ-101 to see the Honda windscreen. I think Ron Ayers still has it for around $75

I've had two screens: the F18 and the Givi 240a. Here's what the Givi looks like:

(In case you're wondering, it's the light smoke that I sprayed with a flat black on the inside of the screen after taping off the "windshield" portion.)

I believe I paid $50 on Ebay. It was a little beat up. But I touched it up

Here is one I just put on my bike. had the factory Honda shield and it done a real good job of keeping the bugs off the gauges but not much help in the wind. This shield was on another bike I have and thought I would see how it fit. I think it looks ok and id does a real good job on the wind, but to each his own. It is a Spitfire made by Slipstreamer, or that is what is on the bottom corner. I will post some pictures when I figure out how. Mike

I like both the Monster fairing and the Givi. I've got the Nat. Cyle F16. It works o.k. , but cant get to the instruments for cleaning , and NOT easy to take off and put back on.

I've gone a different route.....through Twisted Throttle there is a company called MRA. They make larger touring screens that bolt to the handlebars but come off in seconds. So, I went big touring style, and unbolt when I get to the twisties.

Wow, that looks great... I have that exact same fairing on my bike, have always had an issue with the headlight reflecting back up on to it, had used some black tape, but rest assured I will be painting mine before the day is up... I see you're from Dallas, do you ever make up this way to ride the Ozarks?

I don't know what year the fairing is from. They didn't post it when I bought it. As far a mounting it.

I cut the brackets off of the monster windscreen (since they're molded on). Order the brackets for the Givi windscreen (since they're made to fit the 919). Drilled two holes in the top of the monsters windscreen. Added some rubber plugs in the bottom bracket holes (so that there are no vibrations) And there you have it.
