Harley-Davidson SwitchBack Windshield by Clearview Shields

We engineer our Harley-Davidson SwitchBack Windshields and Motorcycle windscreens to exceed your expectations through rigorous testing. During the final stages of product development, we send out samples of our designs to different riders for review and feedback to refine the finished product. These individuals are asked for their body height, inseam, and any existing Bike mods/modifications. This information gives us valuable data when determining best windshield size for each individual rider. This data is available to you to use for comparison for your own body size and riding needs.

Harley-Davidson introduced the Switchback in 2012.   

Since then, there have been a number of changes, most notably the addition of optional ABS brakes, which became standard in 2014.

The name “Switchback” is relevant because the saddlebag and windshield were designed specifically for the switchback rider who wanted to benefit from its functionality without having any objections to the style. The Switchback combines the Harley 103-ci (1,690 cc) twin-engine used in the larger touring models with the smaller, lighter Dyna frame used in road cruisers. While windshield and saddlebag are standard in some places, the bike resembles a smaller version of its legendary Road King motorcycle.

The Switchback and Engine Revolution models were introduced in a seemingly careful response by Harley-Davidson to analyst concerns about its vulnerability to age and demographic profiles. As previously mentioned, Harley believes the Switchback will appeal to a different demographic than its cruisers and larger touring motorcycles.

Comfort is good enough for one person or two people for a full-day trip. The saddlebag is not as wide as a full-face helmet but offers enough space for one person. The raised handlebar and the plank add to the comfort. The windscreen and saddlebag can be removed and reinstalled in less than five minutes. Better mileage than a Honda Civic and much more fun.   

Valve adjustments are necessary and the carbon fiber drive belt should last for at least 60,000 miles. The oil filter should be changed about every 5,000 miles.

    Harley Switchback 17 1/2"

    Excellent build, clarity, fit, and performance. Also have the 19″. Best windshields I have used having outfitted 9 other Harleys over the years. No need to look any further.

    Harley Davidson Switch back windshield 17.5" with recurve clear tint

    Around 30 days after I purchased the windshield it arrived.
    It’s thicker than a stock windshield. I thought it would have a little more recurve than it does. It DOES seem to make a difference. I haven’t had a chance to try it with interstate speeds yet but I feel like I can hear the motorcycle more which means there’s less wind buffeting which is what I was going for in the first place.

    2016 Harley-Davidson Dyna 103. Stock windshield height (16″). Had a big problem with too much turbulence while wearing half helmet and riding glasses. Purchased the 19.5″ windshield with recurve and worked perfectly. Mounted right up to stock brackets. But the best part is no more interstate bobblehead!

    Exceptional product and customer service.

    Received the shield but it was cut for a bike that didn’t have a light bar, mine does. Called and spoke customer service who quickly agreed to send me a return label and replace the shield. Took it to UPS, they printed the label and off it went. Within a week I received a shipment notice that the new shield was enroute. Upon arrival I could quickly see the problem was resolved. Installed the shield, perfect fit and great loom, a very nice upgrade to my factory shield. Highly recommend this product!

    Great Windshield

    The product is what I expected. Installation went off without any problem. Road test proved wonderful. Great product. Only regrets is the vent in the windshield, they were out of stock with those at the time that I ordered.

    Switchback Windshield

    As a tall guy, the stock shield on my bike wasn’t getting the job done. The buffeting was unbearable. Clearview instructed me over the phone how to measure to get the accurate size for my height.
    The shield arrived well packaged and in the time frame they said it would, with easy step by step instructions. The fit was perfect and has made all the difference in the world to my riding comfort.

  11. Dale

    Very satisfied with product and service. Would use again and have referred to friends.

  12. Cindy

    Very good quality..perfect fit…love it!!

  13. Floyd

    Well made. Reduced buffeting enough where i removed the wind deflectors from the forks. Wish the bottom extended down more to further reduce buffeting.

  14. Thomas

    I really appreciate the help I got from the customer service aspect as well as the over all product I will definitely be using this company in the future and recommending to my friends
