Quick Disconnect Windshield

Has anyone ever found or used a quick-disconnect windshield for the VN750? Is it even possible?

Both the PF3 and the PS2 can be taken off/on quickly..

Most good screens use ball joint connectors ... So they pop off if you hit them in an accident. Some can be "popped" off by hand and popped back on too.

Short screen usually have only two mounting points. 20 seconds with a socket wrench gets them off quickly too.


Guess it matters what you call "quick"....

I've got a Memphis Shades "Memphis Fats" windshield. After initial install, which involves relocating turn signals (they make a kit for that), it's pretty quick. Quick turn of 4 hex bolts (I've always got the wrench in the bike) and it slides right off. Tighten them a bit to make sure the don't vibrate out while riding and you're set. Putting it on or taking it off is less than a 5 minute process, and I'm confident that it'll stay put.

Again, how quick is 'quick?' For me, this is quick.

I have the Plexistar II installed. The PS2 and PS3 both mount the same way. They can easily be removed in a few minutes if needed. Re-install is just as easy.

I saw one on a Harley that had two spring clips to release it. I gues that's what I thought was "quick".

But 5 minutes is pretty fast too. When off - does mounting hardware stick out all over?

No, just 2 chrome brackets on the handlebars. Don't even notice them.

just validating it for ya!


When you remove the PS...the only things left on the bike are 2 clamps that remain on the handlebars, and 2 clamps on the forks. You remove the windshield by unscrewing a knob (for lack of a better description) and the brackets come off with the windshield.

in the photo the clamps are mounted just above the horns on the forks....and you can see the one on the handlebar(in left side of this photo)
