Knifemaker Small screens will keep bugs off your chest but if the wind is still hitting your faceshield ....do will the bugs. Tiny tiny ones might get blown off course but the ones that go SPLAT will still seem to be on a kamikaze mission to your face.
If you get a small screen make sure it's still talll enough to duck behind.

Any ideas on a small wind shield that won't stop all the wind but will deflect the bugs without directing all the wind slam in your face? I searched the posts but didn't see anything that answers my question. I am 6 foot 1 inch tall.
I use this one. Small but deflects all the bugs.

2fas4u I have a mini police shield on mine right now. It does a decent job.
I picked mine up for about $50

goofin Look on eBay, I found one locally and it did a decent job. I went with a full size one so I could extend my riding season

emtdon here is the link to the site. This is one of there smaller ones. not sure how good it will do. The taller windshield does better blocking bugs. how close to Pikeville are you. I work in grundy about 45 miles from Pikeville. I go to the hospital alot from grundy.

V750_outlaw thanks, I want to stay small as possible. those tiny bug shields look ok but I wonder if they work.
