What do I need to buy for the full Road Warrior Kit for my bike?

The Memphis Shades Road Warrior Fairing is not technically sold in a ‘kit’ as different Harley models require different components to properly fit their ride.

Every rider will need at minimum:

1. Road Warrior Fairing
2. Road Warrior Windshield
3. Trigger Lock Quick Detach Road Warrior Mount Kit (available with either black or polished side plates)

You cannot install the Road Warrior Fairing without the Trigger Lock Mount Kit. In addition, many Harley's will require a headlight extension block to properly extend their headlight to align with the fairing opening.

Due to the variations in the kits and heights, all these pieces are sold separately, but we take care to make your purchase as simple as possible. Just reach out with any questions you have or check out the links and fitment instructions on each kit and page or click here to jump to the bottom of the page for a fitment chart.

What style and height windshield should I choose for my Road Warrior Fairing?

Windshields for the Road Warrior run from a mini Cafe style and then in 7”, 9”, 11”, 13”, 15” and 17” heights. The fairing itself adds about 3” to the overall height of your setup, so if you choose a 7” windshield you’re essentially adding 10” from the top of the headlight opening.


Riders can choose either a standard windshield (most popular) or a vented windshield, which allows for a little bit of airflow and is more ideal for hotter climates or riders who want to feel a little extra ventilation while they ride. So what height should you choose? Check out a few pictures below for some help in comparing a range of sizes - from 7” all the way to 17”.

What tint Road Warrior Windshield Should I get?

There are 3 tint options currently available for your Road Warrior windshield - Ghost, Black Smoke and Dark Black Smoke. Check out the photos below to take a look at the differences in darkness, but the Ghost allows about 85% light transmission through the shield, the Black Smoke allows approximately 40% light transmission and the Dark Black Smoke allows about 25% light transmission. So - Ghost is the lightest, Black Smoke your next step and the Dark Black Smoke is the darkest windshield option.

Memphis Shades only produces the Dark Black Smoke version of the shields up to 11” with Ghost and Black Smoke available the rest of the way up to 17” so that you have a sufficient view through the shield while you ride.

Road Warrior windshields are non-specific to year/model so any windshield you choose will fit every Road Warrior Fairing, regardless of the Harley you ride. In addition, it’s a very straightforward process to swap out windshields should you want to change to a different height and/or tint.
