Smile Windshields and more

Hello, I'm new here. I just got a 750 and I'm wondering what type of windshields other riders use and like on this bike. I noticed at least one person has a Slipstreamer Hellfire and I'm wondering how it works for them. I've been looking at the S-08 and the S-05 for a little less wind. Just wondering if these make much of a difference in speed resistance. My last bike, an '82 Virago 920 had a fairing and I really appreciated the protection on long rides.

I've read a lot here about stator problems and fixes, I'll probably do the mod when I have a problem. I'm about to do all the greasing, fluid changes, and other general maintenance you folks have recommend.

Thanks for the great forum and for any input you might give.

Thanks

Clem

the plexifairing 3 seems to be the biggest and best as for wind coverage
