I am writing the definitive book on the Windjammer Fairing and need your help. Every Windjammer had a serial number plate with a specific number. The number is stamped into the aluminum plug plate. Over the years, I have been able to collect numbers for the following fairings:

Windjammer: Lowest known #1,000; highest known #9,161
Windjammer II: Lowest known #13,648; highest known #43,986
Windjammer III: Lowest known #50,212; highest known #91,830
Midway, we changed to 09 prefix. Lowest known# 09-10,286 ; highest known #09-136,005

Windjammer SS: Lowest known #24-200,459; highest known #24-281,175
Windjammer 4: Lowest known # 37-198,281; highest known # 37-563,595
Windjammer 5: Lowest known #63-100,377; highest known #63-180,823

Vindicator (1978) Lowest known # 31-300,849; highest known #31-605,461
Vindicator (1979 up) Lowest known #39-557,352; highest known #39-566,480

Kawasaki by Vetter Lowest known #K32-101,101; highest known #K32-126,686

Please let my know if you come across lower or higher numbers. Photo documentation would be good if you can. I think you are going to like this book.

Thank you so much Craig

My cousin bought a motorcycle from a person on CraigsList. When I picked up the motor cycle, the seller gave me a Kawasaki Fairing and Windshield, still in the box and never installed. While doing some research on the Kawasaki Fairing and Windshield, I found this website about Vetter products. I'm not a mathematician but I think my serial number of #K32-100,232 is lower than "Kawasaki by Vetter Lowest known #K32-101,101; highest known #K32-126,686" listed above.

Windjammer IV Serial No 37-542534
Inverurie, Scotland, UK
Just got it off ebay. Not in the best of condition but is all there. Does anyone sell the complete headlamp adjuster?
Mine is there but cannot get the adjuster knob of the screwed bar. Tried as suggested on the Vetter FAQ page but it is just spinning and not removing.Looks like the brass insert is loose inside the knob and will not pull up. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum from this side of the Pond! I have seen a few of those on ebay from time to time.
