Canadaian West Coast
« on: April 02, 2019, 12:10:22 AM »
Just signed up as I recently got a 2013 CB500X. Hoping to do a trip with my son late this summer.

First issue is the windshield. Solved it on the DL650 with a madstad bracket. I see there's an epic thread on that issue here too. Sigh.

I also have a CBR250R and just sold a DL650.

Welcome to the forum. I have a 2014 X that I have ordered RR lvl 2 for and am anxiously awaiting the parts. My son has a 2013 X and I have been planning to get a 19 but I am enjoying the 14 so much I may not.  :401:

Pretty much same story. I had a DL650 and bought the Madstad bracket and it was great. I got one for my CB500X and it didn't perform the same for me.

I've been at it for a while if you want to see my trial and error: https://www.cb500x.com/index.php/topic,8149.0.html

In the end, I went with a Givi and MRA X-creen tour size, which is pretty good. I think that I could have gotten away with a shorter screen, maybe a tall OEM or a 16+ swap.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks so much or pointing me to your trails and tribulations. Do you have any thoughts on the x-creen with the stock windshield?

I still do have the stubby OEM, but I haven't tried the X-creen with it. My best guess is that it would be too short to direct enough air up and over for a guy my size. I'm 6'. The shape of it doesn't really lend itself to flow air over the rider. That would put a majority of the work on the x-creen, which it isn't designed to do.

How tall are you?
