Received the 118 Bikes tinted windshield today and what an improvement!!

Buffeting and wind noise are reduced significantly. I could actually hear the engine at 80 mph and it sounds sweet!!

I am 5'10 with a 32 inch inseam.

here is the link

Do you look thru or look over the windshield at your height ?

Thanks for the response. Seems like a likely purchase for me. Can't beat the cost .   

Just ordered one !  :152:

Hi willielee3,

Thanks for the heads up on the 118bikes windshield, I've got one coming my was as well. How did the new screen interact with your hand guards?

thanks

Jack

The shield actually hits the factory handguards.  Not a big deal to me....I am just happy riding with an increased level of comfort and reduced noise level.

Love the packaging...string only - no tape!!!

So does that mean you cant use the steering lock with this screen installed? Not that I use that lock very often.

I just received and installed my 118bikes screen.  It is in the high position and I am 6' with a 32" inseam.  It is a big improvement over the stock screen.  I was only able to get up to 55 mph since installing it and the wind seems to hit the top of my helmet now.  Much quieter and I can feel the air coming into the vents on my helmet much better for some reason (could be its a cool day).  I'll take a different route home and see how it does at faster speeds.  You can lock your front wheel, but I don't have handguards.
