You can try the vulcan 500 mounting kit for $135.00 or get the Street Shield Ex that will fit your bike and comes with mounting hardware for $105.00 and is about the same size.

Niterider - Now that is funny! Here's a link to ebay for a Memphis Shades mounting kit, not sure if it will work or not.

The Street Shield Ex mounts to the bars and to the forks.

Once in place it is real easy to remove and install.

Hmm, how do I know the brand windshield I have...??? It has a QD type bolt on to the fork, 2-bolts each side and it is off, it has a couple of small plastic eagles on it but I don't find a brand name anywhere......
Don't really know where to look, but have looked pretty much all over, it has a sliding section above the headlight that I guess lets you control how high or low and how much air you want to pass through over the headlight...
Any ideas what brand...??? I can't post pictures, too dumb......
Thanks...

I know this might seem like a silly idea, but perhaps you could call Memphis Shades and just ask them if they have a hardware kit you could use, (or possiblely alter) for your bike?
