Plexifairing GT windshield

Not the best looking thing in the world, but I'll trade looks for function in this case. Riding in the high 30s won't be so bad.

Mounting was fairly easy and straight forward. $160 shipped, should pay for itself in gas savings by the end of the winter and then some.

After riding halfway across the country a couple months ago, I've been thinking about buying a windshield to use on long-distance rides. As it's been getting colder, I've been considering getting one of those myself, I think it would help dramatically in fighting the cold wind, in these dark months...Be sure to post what you think of it after you've ridden with it for a bit.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Shadow, I've had the windshield on for 3 weeks now. I haven't tried it in the rain yet, not really wanting to not having lower fairings.. but I think it'd do pretty good. Keeps my upper body real warm and some of my upper leg also. The windscreen extends down a little from the handle bars, provides more wind protection.

I got vibrations from the windshield at first, turns out the rubber piece that goes around and over the headlight can't be touching or the back of the gauge cluster. A 1 min adjustment fixed this. Also, the wind doesn't fully clear the top of my helmet, so I'm getting wind noises up there. If I duck down by an inch, no noise. I wear noise-isolating headphones, so this isn't really an issue though. I think it's the best looking windshield for the bike.

Worth every penny IMO.

Good luck, make sure you mount some studded tires first. I can handle riding in the cold, but snow and ice is a no-go

Good info on the windscreen. I have been looking at that particular model myself. What is your height? I'm 6' even, wondering where the wind would hit me.

When I was a kid we used to ride our dirtbikes around town every time it snowed. However, they didn't have expensive parts to replace when we crashed. And, my ZX10 is too pretty for the rain, but my WR250X appears to be waterproof.

By the way, that windshielf is friggin gigantic. Hopefully you would only use it for trips or winter commuting, and otherwise take it off.

Well I had to at least try to zing ya LOL I know that living in Seattle if you wont rid in the rain you wont ride much..... I Used to ride dirtbike (Honda XR1000 in the snow and mud all the time when I was growing up too, didnt much care about crashing, like you said it really didnt do any damage and was actually part of the fun. Flopping over on the pavement covered with ice sounds painful and expensive.

It only snows a little up here, so we had to ride in the snow for the fun of it. One of my favorite memories was getting chased by the cops in about 6-8 inches of snow. I went to ride through the church field to get away, rode over the railroad tie I knew was at the edge of the parking lot, which apparently the cop didn't know was there (and couldn't see/notice with the snow). I loved seeing his car stuck on that railroad tie, and I still get a smile thinking about it.

And, that windshield is still friggin huge.

Thanks for the post, I'm interested. I have 2 bikes and neither has a fairing - looking to get quality long trip/touring/winter duty from the 919. No mods/trimming required? Looks like a good price too - where'd you get it?

Yep, that's things pretty ugly, but for riding in the winter, I don't blame you one bit. I added something close to that on my nighthawk a few years back for winter riding. It helped a lot. I didn't want to put it on the 919, so I picked up a national cycle f-16 tall. It's enough that I could tuck down behind it, and keep out of the cold wind long enough to get home. As soon as the weather warmed up, I took it off.

I've since picked up a little car that gets great mileage, so I don't see that many cold rides in my future this winter. The 14 degrees i rode home in last winter sucked big ass...

I got it from this guy on Ebay. I can ask to see if he's still able to get them and do the same price. I offered $150 + $19 for shipping. It was originally listed for $170 + shipping.

You can also pick it up at Bikebandit.com for $175 + shipping.

As far as mounting the shield, no trimming or modifications are required. Great thing about the setup, it can be taken off or re-mounted within 5 minutes without having to re-align. The parts for aligning stays on the bike, when the shield is taken off. Maybe some minor tweaks if there's vibrations, specifically above the headlight or behind the gauge cluster. There are two mounts that go directly on the handlebar. And another two onto the forks.

On the handlebar mount, there's one part that clamps onto the bar and the other is the actual piece the holds the rod which supports to screen. These two parts are held together by the bolt with the plastic knob on them. Adjusting the height is done by loosening the top nut, slide to the height you want, and tighten down.

The second mount is a simple hose clamp that goes around the forks and holds the bottom rods.

To take the screen off, remove the bolts with the giant plastic knobs on the handlebar. Along with 2 wing nuts for the bottom and the bike is convertible again.

Looks like it'll work pretty well for the cold weather, I'm looking for something like that myself. Where did you get the HRC decals? I've seen them on a couple 919's and love them...

I forget where I got those stickers.. I had a bunch of decals sitting around in the garage from the RC days. You can run a google on hrc motorcycle decal kits, probably get a good find.

How'd you mount the VFR screen on there? Looks like a good inexpensive alternative.
