Hello,

I need more light at night,
so I want to add a light bar to my bike.

I liked the National Cycle N923 bar, great quality, great look,
and designed for the bike
but was told by the company it has been discontinued.

I have looked online and found a few "universals" that need assembly
of unknown quality.

I also have a large windshield of unknown origin I want to retain,
maybe it looks familiar to one of you.
I can move it up higher on the forks about an inch to inch and a quarter.

Thanks to all in advance. - Steev

You need to keep the shield top at about nose height. You'll need a way to mount any universal light bar so you may have to modify what comes with it or make your own. You also need to wire the power to the bar through a relay directly from the battery. This link gives you some idea how to wire.

Why ???

So you're saying you think no one makes light bar designed for this bike anymore ???
I'm starting to believe that because the National Cycle One was the only one I found and they discontinued it....

Some pretty pretty terrible reviews on them
Yeah, I see that now... I was busy worried about the fitment issue first. So those are out.

I CANNOT find the National Cycle N923's to save my life. When I do, it says out of stock or no longer available... etc etc... like I said National said they were discontinued damnit...
The pros still outweigh the cons, but
one of the major cons to these metric bikes vs. the H-D's is parts availability and selection.

I have the 08 aero 750 and national cycle 944 fits mine. Do they have any others available for you? I've got a NC switchblade so going with this as they are way better quality than others. Try the cobras. They were my 1st choice but switchblade makes it harder to fit

N927
N933
N942
N944

Just not the N923,,, Ones of these has to be close enough
