Bike Cover (size/where) need recommendation! :)

Howdy!!

Can anyone recommend a good Bike cover for Kawa? I am not sure about the size and where to buy one fairly inexpensive
It would be nice to have the heat shield on the cover so the pipes wont melt it.


thanks in advance!

PEACE!!!

According to the Verses, the vn750 is 90.4" long, so look for one that will accommodate up to an eight foot cruiser and a windshield, if you have one.
Then you have a choice between a cotton dust cover for use inside the garage, or a synthetic weather cover.

I have seen discounted ones for sale around $40. Sorry I don`t have any specifics.

I love my nelson rigg cover, I cant believe that they have still got these in stock NewEnough.com, I also got the Rapid Transit tank bag, the bag is not the prettiest luggage, but it is very handy and I never take it off, both the bag and the cover work great on my 750 with ~17 inch windshield

I got a pretty nice one at Wal-mart for around 20 bucks. It is a "large" and fit the Vulcan well. (I had a high sissy bar and a PS2 windscreen) It now fits my FJR quite well too. It has a felt panel where the windscreen fits and has gommets in the bottom that you can use to thread a cable through with a lock.

I bought this one for my VN750:
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...son-Cover.aspx

I got the XL size and the fit is almost perfect. It covers everything except a little bit of the front wheel. It's a little bit tight over the mirrors, but those are stock and I plan on replacing them anyway. Also, I don't have a windshield. It might be a different fit if you do have one.
