Memphis Shades Gauntlet Fairing For Harley Dyna And Sportster 1986-2015
I am building a club style bike, and this is a must (bikini fairing). I have been riding without any fairing for about five months and I’ve put 5,000 miles on my bike. Before getting the fairing I would be tired after a medium ride (100-300 miles) after getting the fairing I made the same distance ride and the wind protection was great for it being a bikini fairing and after the ride I wasn’t tired. I look forward to the next 5,000 miles with the fairing!

Got the gauntlet put on and couldnt have been any easier than what it was to do so... I took my time lining it up (about 30 minutes) and it looks GREAT! I highly recommend this!

Great Look and Easy to install
Make sure you get the mounting hardware for this that is specific to your bike. That's my only complaint; that the fairing and mounting hardware don't come as a package. Otherwise, when you install the mounting hardware, put the brackets on the fairing, then attach the clamps to the forks loosely, then line up the fairing on the clamps so you can get them where they need to be. after that, tighten down the clamps, make sure the quick disconnects are latched completely, and ride on!
Note: Other reviews have mentioned cutting the shroud that goes around the headlight. try fitting it first before you cut into anything. The shroud is flexible/pliable and should move around enough to get over the stock H-D headlight. when you relocate the turn signals to the bottom bracket, there will be a slight gap, but it isn't a problem and you can't even notice it unless you're looking closely. I just made sure to tighten it down and alight the turn signals and it was good to go.

I was checking out a few of the pricier fairing options and decided on the MS Gauntlet due to the combination of low price and good looks. I am extremely happy with my purchase. The fairing is well made as is the mounting kit. The fairing blocks most of the wind for me and pushes it right over my head (I'm 5'9"). Considering the price for some of the competition I think this is the best fairing value out there right now.

Looks good and works great for highway riding
Perfect for what I was looking for in a quarter fairing. Great price and only took about 30 minutes to install and get right.
The only downside is that the mounting brackets are expensive for just a couple simple pieces

Looks awesome...but difficult install
I have a Sportster Low/SuperLow XL883L 2013 and this (windshield) looks great on it, but it was difficult.
I ended up having to cut the top part of the headlight housing off so the fairing could fit over the light.
In addition I had to have a friend come over to help get the notches to line up perfect to snap on.
In the end awesome! But I sweated it out for at least 2 hrs...you'll see.

Nice alternative to a small windscreen.
Quality of the fairing and mounting hardware is very good for the price. Took some patience to get the clamps all adjusted so fairing sits straight.
I installed the fairing on a 2012 FXDC. There is a lot of reflection from the headlamp on the inside of the fairing -- to the point I find it hard to use the high beam at night. May need modify the headlamp mount to that it sits farther forward.
Perfect wind protection for what I wanted -- keeps the wind off of my chest, but still get good airflow to the helmet (full-face) and shoulders (summertime ventilation). Buffeting noticeable only as moderately increased wind noise when I'm not using earplugs. Interstate travel is much more comfortable now.
