Thinking of getting one. Any of you guys using them? How do you like them? How sturdy are they?

The hidden fairing mount? I've had mine for about 5K miles, love the clean look and ablility to remove my crash bar in minutes if wanted (mostly for pictures) as for sturdy, I only rode my bike with the factory setup for 170 before it was torn compelety apart but I have no rattles, shakes, shimmies, etc fairing is rock solid and for less than $100 I couldn't be happier

I like the way the bikes look without the crash bar but having laid mine down ever so slightly on its side once im REALLY glad the crash bar was there.

I didn't do it to eliminate the engine guard. I did it to clean up the looks in the front. Also I do believe it blocks wind that comes up between the fairing and tank too.

2 years and 20,000 miles later, I still love mine. Also did it to clean up the front end. Very sturdy and no issues whatsoever.

Thanks guys!! I just pulled the trigger and ordered a set. Can't wait. Now I can pull the engine guard off for powder coating and not lose and riding time.

so out of curiosity, if you have the hidden mounts, are you still able to run the snap on wind deflectors? do you even still need to?
