Windshield for 750

Does anyone know if this windshield will fit our bike? I just want something basic, and want to make sure this one will actually work.... Thanks.

I think that one is actually an over statement! The Kawi offered wind screen is the same size which is IMO actually small. Will prob fit and look good--just saynnnnn

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

Mine is the Dealer offered one, grey tint with the Kawi wing emblem on it. A lot of talk here about OEM!!!!! Looks good, wish was a little bigger but it is what it is. Works fine for me. When that one said large and gave dims, I knew it was an overstatement! IMO

LARGE in width, not in HEIGHT. your noodle is going to be in the wind, but maybe that is what you want. it looks way too short for my liking. my riding buddy has one just like that on his vn800 and it offers me no wind protection to the face. i don't like windburn as i am getting older. it keeps the wind off your chest and is much better than nothing, plus some people like to look over the top. not me. my screen is 22" from the top of headlight. just my two cents. but i think it will fit.

The wind in your face can very well be the airdynamics of your helmet! I have a small windscreen (tinted KAWI) and can see over the top. Have 2 helments, the one I wear the most gets more in my face than the full face I wear in winter. The full face I can ride with the visor wide open and no wind at all. Knock on wood!! have not taken a bug to the face yet with the small wind screen!!

haha... sorry but i find that helmets, seat belts, and condoms take about 99% of the fun out of life

i know it's dangerous. a meteor could fall from the sky at any time and brain me... but i ain't gonna run around with a metal collander on my head! fortunately my neighboring state (5 miles away from my house) has no helmet law, and about the closest thing to twisty roads in a several hundred mile radius.

driving in a car you are also somewhat likely to be in an accident and suffer head injuries, yet i see no state has mandated that car passengers wear helmets. but yes a full face helmet decreases the need for a tall windshield, of course. should have thought before i wrote
