I found on ebay an individual who is selling custom grills for all makes of bikes to include the vn750. Has anyone bought one and installed it. Also, I do not buy or sell on ebay anymore because of unauthorized charges ebay sometime ago. I cannot send a message by ebay to Mike. Does anyone have another email address for him. thanks

I have one on the way. Should be here tomorrow or Monday. I'll let everyone here know how it works out. I was in contact with him before Xmas trying to convince him to make some for our bikes. I did find his address in one of the emails. Mikes Custom Grills [email protected]

That is a great price for the grills. Boy do they look great. Just picked up a engine grill on Ebay at a good price and a seat pad. This looks like something I also need, they are 1/3 the price of other ones on Ebay, and they are new.
Thanks for the info.

Well for what it's worth. I've been e-mailing him back and forth a few times. He's interested in doing a group run of vn750.com oriented grills for us. I don't have an exact quote on the cost yet. We're still working out a few details of file formats & such. I'm looking for ideas for the main body of the grills. I'm going to creats a simplified version of the logo, but I don't think it should be the main of the grill. I kinda like the thought tribal flames with the logo at the top. Shoot me some Ideas. If we can get a group idea worked up, I can work up a design or two. put it to a vote on the final & as long as we have enough orders it will all be good. I should know in the next day or so for a minimal order. Later!:beerchug:

i like the grills, it is a "cheap" dress up, and could be an identifing vn badge if one could be designed. however, even though i like it, the idea, living in texas, where ambient temp. from now till oct. will rarely be less than 80 deg., more likely to be 90-103, i would be concerned that the cooling would be affected.. any thoughts?:confused: ride safe:motorcycl

Most of his designs seem to have large sections that would block off airflow.

I think if you really wanted something shiny there, you should paint the stock grill silver and/or find a sheet of "expanded" screen and have it chromed.

The bike is watercooled, so even if the grill does not cause it to overheat..you have to figure it is reducing the efficiancy of the system...which in the long run does mean more engine wear.

I have seen a few bike with the stock guard painted silver and it looked pretty good.

Kinda like this? It's one of the first things I did to my scooter. Never really thought of as a "mod" though.

Thanks for the pic. Being a visual guy, I was wondering what they would look like on the bike. I noticed he (I think its the same guy) has the vulcan logo cut out on one for the bigger nomads etc....but not sized for the 750 (yet). A plasma cutter is a wonderful thang!!!!!

I sent him another email tonight trying to get an estimated price we pay & a min quantity. I have yet to hear. & I haven't heard alot of comments as to what should be on/in the vn750.com cover. I still think it would be kinda cool if we came up with one.

I dont think the Vulcan badge would look very good. It has to be something narrow, as our radiators are tall and narrow. When I talked to him a while back, thats what he told me about a design.
