Slipstreamer 20" Windshield

Just recently ordered one of these through Amazon and installed it on the bike. Man, what a huge difference a windshield makes! It's molded outward toward the grips to deflect the wind away from your hands (and actually works). 100% clear lexan except for the mounting hardware. Speaking of hardware, they sent me the wrong fork mounting brackets - no problem as I didn't like the factory bent pieces of sheet steel, complete with rubber sheets to take up space inside the bracket if it doesn't tighten up all the way initially. Ordered some 41mm fork clamps from J&P (again via amazon), 2 pairs for around 86.00, and did a much more secure and cleaner mounting on the bike. Since I put this thing on, the wind gusts that would previously have me testing the speed of my reflexes for controlling the bike in strong windy rides now exert more of a solid more gradual push that I find much easier to respond to and control.
One thing I don't care for is the space above the headlight to the bottom of the windshield where it's contoured to clear the top of the headlight - it's about 3" and I've realized it lets quite a bit of air through which hits the tank and then comes around and hits me in the legs - going to modify with a heavy plastic insert cut from a plastic mudflap form an 18 wheeler chassis. That should take care of the blow-through at that space. Otherwise, I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to get out of some of the wind. Oh Yeah!......Only cost about 218.00 vice the cost of the whole Memphis Shades batwing fairing, windshield and hardware set up. The Croc

Last important detail - Model is the SS 32 Falcon. Hope this helps someone.

Any pictures yet?, I looked at that shield before I pulled the trigger on the batwing.

I just hook my phone to my laptop and transfer the pictures, then just resize.

Sounds good.
