I purchased the 10.5" for winter riding which means I have to look *through* the windshield instead of over it which is new for me. The windshield is so clear though that it actually improves my vision just a bit! I was a little surprised and kept checking that, but it does. That's not a medical claim for this product and it's probably specific to my eyesight, but it is actually the case for me!
The cleaning instructions are a nice added touch that shows that they care about the customer experience. Highly recommended.
So here's a bit of background: I'm a fellow about 6' 1" tall with a 32" inseam. I just started riding and really love the quiet ride of the Goldwings. The noise on my PC800 was incredibly obnoxious compared to that! My PC came with the stock, shorter, windscreen, which dumped the air about at chin level and made a tremendous turbulence racket!
I have sensitive ears, and I noticed that I would get a little deaf on half-hour rides if my earplugs weren't in all the way. I also like to ride as much as possible, even in inclement weather. The stock windshield made the bike feel cold compared to the Goldwing.
I bought the Clearview that was 5" taller than stock with no vents. It made a huge difference! The wind noise is basically gone, there's definitely no turbulence, I can see just above the shield, and almost all the air goes right over my head! It's great!
The bike is noticeably more comfortable to ride in cold weather now, and visibility is still great. I can ride comfortably without earplugs. My only regret is that I didn't get the Goldwing-style vent. I think I'll miss that next summer when it warms up. Overall, though, I love the shield and it was worth every penny!
I can only recommend, if you need a windshield whether as a replacement or just want a shield get a Clearview, its an awesome product.
Thanks again to the entire Clearview team, great customer support and awesome product.
than any other windshield w/vent hole.
Ill use them again
I will be recommending your company to other riders who need an aftermarket accessory.
At nearly 6.5' lanky build The factory edition put everything right in my face, this one I have to actually stretch up to get that now. No buffeting that I can tell so far. Perfect for getting the wind off of me right in time for colder weather to start.
The black masking material (under the metal bracket pieces) is not aligned well. There is a significant "shadow" around much of the trim. The Indian shield had none.
Leider entspricht das Windschild nicht meinen Erwartungen.
Es kommt es zu starken Verwirbelungen am Helm ab ca. 90 Km/h. Das Schild ist wahrscheinlich zu hoch. Auch die Verarbeitung der Kanten entspricht nicht meinen Vorstellungen. Leider kann ich das Windschild so nicht gebrauchen.
