    Clear Large with adj. vent

    Hi Mark

    Received your windshield in the mail with no problems. It fits perfect and looks much better than stock; all the holes lined up and the vent is excellent quality. I went for a 330 km ride on Sunday and the buffeting has been reduced.

    I am a satisfied customer and now am waiting for you to design a shield for my FJR!

    Here is a shot of my Venture

    Thanks again

    XL Clear with adjustable vent

    You can see the Clearview Shield because of the vent in it. It was great having it for our ride to Key West!… especially in the rain as the old shield would have been impossible to see through.

    “Another satisfied customer and another happy Royal Star Venture Shield.”

    Having rode my first 600 km with my new GT XX-Large 23″ Clearview Shield installed, I can say that comfort and security is simply amazing!

    My passenger also noticed better airflow over his helmet even at speed over 140 Km/h!

    Thank you Clearview Shield!

    I am 6 ft tall even. If I had it over to do again I’d probably go with a replacement about in inch shorter. It may be too early to tell, I’ve only put on about 250 miles. Your’s is very much better than the stock Yamaha I had, which was the tall one. So now I see the top of the shield when with the too tall one I did not. I suspect I will adjust soon.

    Here are some pictures of your XXL windshield on my 2001 Yamaha Royal Star Venture. I really enjoy your windshield. Makes such a difference in riding comfort.

    Thanks again and feel free to use any or all of these pictures as you wish.

    The windshield I had you make for my 99 Venture is two inches wider than your XXL. As you can see it fits the bike perfectly! I really like the thickness of the shield compared to my last one. I was impressed with the engineering of the product with the curvature and fit of your product. I had once purchased a windshield where in high winds the front end would oscillate with the wind buffeting. I have not found that with your product. Also, this is the first time I have had a vent in the windshield. It is a nice addition for riding here in California where we can ride year round.

    Great product!

    Here is a picture of my Royal Star Venture Limited 2000 with a Clearview replacement GT Medium with tint and vent. This windshield has cut down on the head buffet and the air vent is a nice addition to keeping cool on hot days. The craftsmanship of this product is superb.

    Pics of my 2000 Royal Star Venture Millennium with the Clearview shield with the vent. It’s taller and wider than the stock. Have only been a shot distance(30 Miles) after installing but already noticed much less buffeting even on the passenger. Thanks for an outstanding product.

    Just put some miles on the 99 Royal Star Venture with my new Clearview 18″XL vented shield. I’m absolutely thrilled with the way it complements the bikes lines, Yamaha should really consider using your new design right from the factory! At 6’03” 33″ leg inseam my view falls 1inch below the top of the shield. Absolutely no head or should buffeting even when trucks pass. Awsome dead air space, vent works so well I may never put the shortie shield back on during the summer months!

    This shield is a winner and should be on every RSV owners upgrade list.

    Clear Medium with adjustable vent

    Hi Mark,

    I could not be happier. The sizing of the new windshield (extra width & shorter) is perfect. The replacement fit was right on and took me less than 30 minutes to replace. Lastly and most importantly the quality of the product with the vent mounted is fantastic. Believe me I will be recommending you to anyone I know, even the folks I don’t know.

    BTW the whole process of keeping me informed of the progress was spot on. All in all a great experience.

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks, Roger

    I can see!

    This may be an unusual title for a review, but those of you who have ridden a Yamaha Venture in the rain, with the OEM windshield, will understand.

    I heard about Clear View windshields on a Venture web site that I occasionally visit, so I decided to take a chance. I was not sorry.

    When I first called the company, I talked with John Lauk and was impressed with what I heard.

    I went out to my bike, (hereafter called Babe) and measured the height of the factory windshield and my eye height and discussed these facts with John. We were not sure if the medium windshield would be below my line of sight, so we opted for the smaller one.

    When the windshield arrived, it was magnificently packed. Not even the ground apes could damage it. I opened the box and took out the piece and had the shock of my life. The dam thing looked way to small. After measuring it against the OEM windshield, I saw that it was just what I ordered and went about installing it.

    There were three things that I was worried about: They were:

    Would the tint hinder visibility under low light conditions,

    Would there be additional buffeting from the wider shield, and

    Would the windshield shed the rain.

    Off Babe and I went to test out my new toy. The first thing I noticed was the clear view. Of course I was looking over the windshield, but I knew I had wind protection there. I noticed no unusual buffeting from the width of the shield at town or road speeds.

    Since I live in Oregon, I had plenty of opportunity to see if the windshield shedded water. It does very nicely. I also seem to get less spray on my helmet visor (I wear a ¾ HJC with a ratcheting visor). I attributed this fact to the little flip at the top of the wind shield.

    We have not had many bright days yet, so I cant tell if the tint helps reduce road glare, however I can tell you it caused no problems at night in the rain.

    I did an unscientific air flow test, and held my hand up next to my helmet, and didn’t feel any excess buffeting there. Also, my neck doesn’t seem to get any more stress on it than it did with the OEM windshield. I did notice, however, that at road speed, the noise to my ears was a lot higher. I have tried adjusting the position of my visor, and that seems to help some.

    I tried opening up the air vent in the windshield, but could feel no breeze. Of course I was dressed for 30 degree weather, so that is no surprise.

    I wish I had lots of money, cause I think it would be neat to compare the mid sized windshield to the small one. I think I could see over it, however it could be close. I did not take the rake in the windshield into consideration when John and I made our decision. Also, I was unwilling to give up my new toy once it was installed.

    I have been fortunate enough to have a couple of ladies ride with me. Neither lass noticed any buffeting or roll over of air. They thought the ride was great.

    This brings me back to the beginning of the article…. I can see……….

    I received the windshield just in time for my run to Washington DC. I wanted to let you know, this windshield is a 100% improvement over the stock shield. The vent totally eliminated the vacuum effect I felt at highway speeds and the coverage area made this a very comfortable trip. Thanks for getting it to me in time. You sell an awesome product that I’m sure other local Royal Star Venture owners will buy when they see mine.

    Thanks again,

    Got the Venture windshield. Great product, perfect fit.
    I need to tell you a story about your windshield.

    I will be 55 in 3 weeks. I have been riding street bikes since I was 12 years old. My father sold motorcycles and was among the first to sell BMW’s in the very early 60’s. I have ridden them all, BMW, Harlley, Triumph, BSA, ect ect, and have owned a lot of them also. When my dad died in 76 I went from BMW to Honda and rode Hondas until I bought this Venture in 2001. I am very good friends with the local dealer and assemble and do warranty work for him. I never have charged him anythihg for the work I do. Its fun for me and I learn a lot. I get everyting I want through him at his cost. I boughta Venture, 2 Vstar 650’s and a Majesty below dealer cost. I have never owned a motorcycle without a windshield. Sometimes and I dont really understand why, but when I talk motorcycles, some of the people here will listen to me.

    Anyway, another friend here older than me with a 03 Venture, we kinda compete to see who can out do who, when I was talking about your windshield, and showed him the paper on it, he about croaked at what it was going to cost. We have been using the Show Khrome replacements and we can get them for less than 50 bucks. He said that he would NEVER pay that kind of money for a windshield. I normally would not either.

    Your windshield came, I put it on, this friend that would never pay that much money for a windshield now wants one before his trip to Texas and Louisiana.

    Needless to say its quality work, looks great, glad I got the tint and vent. If it ever stops raining I will roll it out and send you a pic or two.

    Thanks for a great pruduct.

    Just got back from my Florida trip and wanted to give you an update on the performance of the windshield I received from you. To sum it up in one word….AWESOME! It was a joy to ride with.. no buffeting, very little wind noise, perfect height to see over. I think the biggest plus is the fact that my wife also enjoyed the ride with it. I put over 3700 miles on my Venture in two weeks and couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks again, it was a real pleasure doing business with, and you have provided me with an awesome product.

    I am on my second shield now. Had the first one for about 7 years and its still looking pretty good. Bought my next one when a special was ran and I noticed many small improvements over the original one. Cant say anything wrong about this shield. One of the best investments I have made to this bike.

    Royal Star Venture Clear XL with adjustable vent

    I really like my new windshield. The extra width is nice. The additional thickness makes it feel more secure. The original windshield was pitted and just always felt flimsy when I cleaned it. The best thing about my new Clearview is the vent.

    I had a great experience all the way around. I will not hesitate to recommend Clearview.

    Yamaha Venture XL Clear

    Just a comment, first impression. New shield arrived yesterday. stock height extra wide. Installed last night, took about an hour, im a little slow. Went for a ride today 36 degrees, rode about 50 miles. Great clarity, I look through the shield very quiet I could hear the radio better, Less air flow on my hands and arms. Don’t seem to get any additional wrap around air on my back. Very happy got what I expected. thanks.

    I have installed the new windshield. It looks great on the bike, and the height of the medium shield is perfect to clearly see over.
    I’m 6’ – 200 lbs and was worried I might need a custom. Glad I went with the medium height.

    The added width will help to keep the hands warmer and the contour shape add to the lines on the bike.
    The vent is well placed to put a breeze right where it’s needed.

    Although I bought a blem model, I don’t visually see anything at all in my line of sight. Shield looks much better than the factory windshield.
