Calling Out Members with Sport Fairings

I have been wanting a sport fairing for my bike. I know National Cycle makes one, but I don't like it. Some here has one I do like, but can't locate them. I'd appreciate if they step forward so I can figure out what fairing they are using.

Thanks!

I only understand what I don't understand.

Sounds like a really vague request. What are you calling a "sports fairing"?

There are 4 basic windscreens (not all are considered "fairings")

There's the "tombstone" screen, the contoured screens like the Plexifairing 3 and the Slipstream, the "fly screen" (just the bare minimum of protection) and the cafe style fairing which has an opaque section that fits around the headlight with a clear windscreen on top.

Then there's true fairings....that attach to the frame, not the forks or handlebar, like the touring fairing Kaw once offered for the bike of the ones you see on Goldwings.

To me a "sport fairing" can be a tiny cafe type to a full fairing like you see on race bikes.

Guessing here, I think you are talking about the cafe style windscreens, like those made by Maier like this one:

Check out the albums on my profile and my old 750 had what Maier Plastics called a sport fairing,their definition not mine. I figure they can call itwhatever they want since they made it.It may or may not be what you are looking for.

Apparently, my request was not that vague if you were able to deduce to what I was originally asking for. And yes, something similar to what was provided in the link.

This one made by Arlen Ness looks pretty tight: http://www.powersportsuperstore.com/...-p/4617287.htm

I only understand what I don't understand.
