Touring windshield.

Excellent condition, includes all hardware. Hopefully, someone local (Des Moines, Iowa) will need it as shipping would not be easy.

$50

Someone is going to get a good deal with that! It looks like a National Cycle plexifairing GT. They still list for $299.
For years I tried to make my 919 into a more, cold weather, touring friendly bike and I bought one of these. I didn't like it in stock form - it was wind noisey for me. So I cut around 6" off the height and it turned out great using the standard handle bars. I used it for cool weather riding for quite a few years.
Good luck with sale.

I see you used the standard handlebars.
Were you forced into doing so by bar shape : shield shape matching?
I don't want to ever use stock bars again, but realize a higher bar than my Renthal ULs would be needed to match the bar end height to the shield.

Mcromo, I did have standard bars when I used the modified windshield. The windshield was perfect with standard bars.
Several years ago I switched to Renthal ULs also. (They are so much better than standard IMO.) But no question the windshield does not match up as well with the ULs. I didn't like the look and have not worked out a solution to that yet for cold weather riding. I was lucky to have a VFR as a second bike for a few years and that was a good temporary solution.

Mark919,
Thanks for the above.
What about a set of Renthals or similar, that have a rise close to that of stock, but with the sweep and pullback more akin to the ULs?
Would the mismatch be such that it would be good enough?
Perhaps something like Renthal Road Medium or High?

Have used both Renthal road mediums and highs on the 919. The mediums are VERY close to stock but wider and have a better wrist angle. Renthal mediums are my preferred bar on the 919. I didn't even run bar weights, it was smooth..........

I am using Renthal road mediums and love the width and wrist angle. Original bar was much too narrow for me. Also, I am not running any handlebar weights with no issue.
