Cool Tail light lens

Does anyone know if the lens on our 750s is the same size as the one on a Vulcan 1500 or 800? Or, can anyone tell me the exact distance center to center of the mounting holes on the V 800 or the V 1500 lenses.

The lenses on either of those bikes are very close to if not the same as ours and I want to order something that may or may not fit. Thanks

The lenses are different for all three bikes!!! Why would you want to order something that may or may not fit???? Just order the one that fits our bike.

Lance, appreciate your advice. If I could order the right one I would but it is temporarily not available. I am talking about the LED board for the tail light. They don't have the one for our bike but the measurements are very very close for the 1500, 800, 88 and Nomad. If I can get the measurements for the mounting holes on the tail lamp lens for any one of those models I will know if I can order the board.

Thanks,

I apologize I thought you were looking for a lens, I did not see the part where you were looking for the LED board.

There are also LED boards on eBay. Search "kawasaki vulcan 750 LED". They will come up in the eBay stores.

Thanks guys. Doug, I wanted to buy the board from Clear Alternatives but they are out for about 2 months. They have the one for the other bikes i mentioned and the measurements are close so I wanted to make sure it fits before I order it. Everything is OK except I am not sure about the exact distance from screw to screw on the mounting.
