Review Summary:
I bought this shield from my local bike store for my 3 hour ride to Daytona Bike Week. Install was fairly easy, however does require some tinkering to get it adjusted right. The hardware is kind of cheap (plastic clips, hose clamps) but once they are tightened down they keep the shield tight. I am not a fan of shields on bikes and I bought this shield because it is smaller and blends in very well with my bike. The shield does take alot of wind off your chest, however it does create some buffering on your head when riding above 70mph, however it is still much nicer then riding without a shield. For the price this is a worth while buy. If you want a shield that will completely take all the wind away then buy a much more expensive and ugly shield!! One side note, I have aftermarket drag bars on my bike which turned out to be 1.25" diameter. The supplied clamps were too small for the bars (my fault they specify this is for 1.00" bars) If you have aftermarker bars then measure them. I had to fabricate some clamps from the local hardware store to make this work on my bike!
