I think the 2013-2015 shield is about 13" tall so you ended up the same just alot cheaper

That'll be one of respect  :020:
I was talking about the shock on their face when they see how old I am on this sort of bike when I should be on a three wheel mobility scooter

On the same subject even through I like the stock screen on my 2019 there is always room for improvement without spending alot-enter Amazon with points I had acumalated I ordered a Chinese shield tinted 100mm taller shipped from the USA  was $60 paid $30 so how can you go wrong on that and it's returnable free-should have it in 5 days- we will see
Well got the shield in --short story not as good as the stock screen- same amount of wind and a little bit of buffeting thrown in had none with stock screen- so back it goes -stock screen with adjusters back on- all's good

The problem with alot of these types of bikes is when your in outer Mongolia and it breaks who do you call where's the closest dealer -to me it would have to be alot more common brand-no matter what language you speak Honda is a word everybody understands- kinda like Coke

with all these people traveling the world on all manner of bikes some built for the task more than others no one makes a true(in my opinion) adventure bike my wish list

350-400cc aircooled single about 35HP five speed first four close ratio for off road fifth gear overdive for  hiway  with single cam -rockers with screw adjusters- 2gt sump-can run on low octane gas -fuel injected with external fuel filter- kickstart able to run on dead battery-  oil cooler thermostat controlled- heavy duty frame able to take heavy rear bags- minimum plastic- heavy duty tubeless spoke wheels 7" travel front and rear- 525 chain inclosed- min 5 gallon tank and the list goes on but you get the drift-I think the Japanese could make something like this easy and sell it for around $6500 and be about 350 lbs-the line forms at the right

The things I would like to see are take a CRF250L drop the 300 engine in it add a 3to4 gal tank And tubeless spoke wheels and bring in the CB350 H'ness they just released in India with a little more HP and just for kicks a rumored 350 ADV scooter would be nice as you can see their all 300-350 range

What does this windscreen adjuster look like?  Might it work on a Madstad?  Can you provide a link to it?
 :002:
If you can mount the stock shield on the Mastad brackets than yes--but I think they use a different mounting  holes so you have to buy their complete system -check Amazon under CB500X windshield adjustable brackets pictures a plenty

It's not really a crash. You just fell off  :002: :153:
He called it a crash that's why I did-or you could say it's just a misunderstanding between the bike and the ground-the universe is against us two wheelers and unseen force holes us up moving -stop and gravity wants to pull
us to the ground

crashing without getting hurt is a learning experience we all have done it some more than others-it's what you get out of the experience that counts to avoid the same thing from happening in the future
