Thread: Flyscreen / windshield fairing

  1. #1

    Default Flyscreen / windshield fairing

    Hey guys, im looking for a small windshield / flyscreen for my zl 1. I see a bunch of awesome ones on our zl's! but buying one new on ebay, who knows if they fit. I like the small flyscreens that wrap all the way around the headlight, a la sons of anarchy. Let me know if anyone is selling and send me a pic!

    most of the smaller fairings will require a few minor modifications to fit properly on the ZL, but can be done fairly easy. if no one has one to sell you here on forum you can try places like Motorcycle Superstore, J.C Whitney, & Shadetree Powersports to name a few.

    The national cycle F-16/F-18 models seem to fit fairly well with little to no modifications. If memory serves there is a couple pics in the members gallery of one on a ZL1.

    Flyscreens are kinda hard to find, but if you do, you can mount them with extended bolts that support the headlight assembly.

    I have a National Cycle F16 wind screen on my ZL1. I have close up pics in my album. It has been on my bike for 5 years & does not create turbulence. They have improved the mounting area on them in the in the past few years. They mount directly through the 2 head light bolts. I put longer SS bolts with large SS finder washers & self locking SS nuts. I recommend the F18 because it will allow for closer mounting around the speedo/tach. Hope this helps. R. J.

    Thanks. I bought it that way. I really have not done anything to it as far as cosmetics goes. It has run flawlessly from day one. I do ride it every week so it does not have time to gum up. I had my friend Ron who is a retired KAW Tech. check it out before I bought it & he said it was worth the asking price so I went ahead with the purchase. Also the guy I bought it from another Ron is also a good friend & he also had 2 ZL 9, a 700 Fazor, a 700 Nighthawk & a VMAX. He sold them all in a 2 year span. The best thing about the purchase was Ron let me make payments on it for about 4 months or I never would have gotten it because I lost my job around the time I put a payment down on it. I sold my old mopar & all my motors & some of that money went to the purchase. It is the best street bike I have ever owned or have ever rode. I test ride bikes every year during Bike Week in Daytona Beach FL & there are fewer bikes for me to chose from every year. The inline muscle cruiser will never return & that sucks. Later. R. J.
