This windshield keeps the bugs out of your teeth and keeps them from splattering all over you, so its serving the purpose for what I bought it for. Looks ok. As far as installation, it was easy up to the point that you have to put the mounts onto the forks. You are supposed to put the rubber padding between the mounts and the forks but there is no way it would fit on mine so I had to install it without them.It was just too thick to go between them and squeeze the mount halves together. I even tried to substitute the thick piece of rubber with a very thin piece of bicycle inner tube cut to the same dimensions and it too was just too thick. I installed the windshield w/o them and have had no problems with it. It doesn't move or try to come loose. I have had it on my bike for 6 or 7 months and don't even have one scratch on it. I clean it with water and a small amount of mild dishwashing detergent only. So it works well enough but I think next time I'll go with the Memphis Fats or Yamaha simply because I have taken more time to look them over and like the design better.
