Like the one on my old bike on the right or a batwing harley style.

The small one is made by Maier Plastics and the larger ones are mostly factory Harley or Memphis Shades brand.

There are only a couple of places that will sell you a fairing for (that fits without mods) a VN750.

One I found was a great deal at only $1,600.

Only thing, reasonable, I have seen is from Rifle windshields...google it
Infact, the picture above looks like the small rifle @ about $300
they have a larger one for about $400. Those are starting prices and
it grows from there.

If you like the looks, a memphis shades batwing is about the same price
if you are or know of a creative mod-er-er.

I love the fairing/shield I'm using. Memphis Shades Malibu. I did paint it to match my scoot.

If you are asking me ,no I didn't have to modify it the mounting kit came with mine and has enough adjustability to fit it to most bikes.

I think slimvulcanrider posted a link in the past year, to some batwing fairings that will fit the vn750 selling for about $100.
Sorry but I don`t recall if it was an Ebay link or a manufacturer site.

There is a difference between a "fairing" and a windscreen or "sheild".

A fairing is attatched to the bikes frame, and does not turn with the front wheel. A fairing does not have to have a windscreen...

A sheild may have a "faring like" section, but is not really a fairing unless it follows the rule above. Am gussing you mean a something like this, but black:




(Stolen from a post by kanuck)


Kawasaki did offer a full fairing for the bike, a few members here have one. Some have retro fitted old Vetter fairings, and there still is a place that makes a sportbike looking fairing for the 750 :
