They are all removable if you have the time to take them off!

BTW - I have a NEW F-16 Screen and brackets for sale if you would be interested.

windshield options

The small flyscreens are usually bolt on and off, but the larger windshields like the ones National Windshields plexifarings1 and 2 and the plexifairing GT come on in off in 2 minutes.The down side is that they are large and are made of acrylic and usually shatter on contact with the pavement.

National Screen are not acrylic, they are Hardcoated Lexan Polycarbonate! http://www.nationalcycle.com/funstuf....html#calendar

that is one of the reasons I bought the F-16 screen, because I knew it wouldn't shatter on me.

I see a good project. What about replacing the hex head bolts with riveted on heavy duty snaps like the ones on truck tonneau cover? May have to bend the stock mounting brackets a little to make room for the extra space, but, in theory, it could work. I've got a stock windscreen and have no intention of ever taking it off (except maybe during the winter when modding or cleaning).

Just an idea.

I leave my brackets on and just remove the shield. I'm thinking of getting some wing nuts to expedite the process.

Harley has some sweet quick clamps that lock on the fork tubes, 10 seconds to remove with no hardware left behind or marks.

But if you bolt Harley parts to your 919 won't it become slower and break down all the time?
