I just put a v-force on my bike yesterday and can already tell that my half helmet won't work with it. So the street shield ex did the trick? The retailer lists it as 18H and 19W... is the 18, 18" above the headlight or 18 top to bottom edge? I can see that the 19 width is greater than the v-force, but if it's 18 overall, that seems to match my v-force height.I also just got a National Cycle Street Shield EX, switched over from a V Force shield put on by PO. The V Force was okay with a full face helmet, but I like to wear my half helmet and the wind would hit my helmet just right and rattle my head making it hard to see at interstate speeds no matter what position I put it so I went with the taller natioanl cycle shield and so far like it. Bought it from CruiserCustomizing.com.
Just answered my own question... from the FAQ on National Cycle "All the windshields in our catalogue and on our web site list the mounted height (distance from the headlight cutout to the top of the screen) and the width."The retailer lists it as 18H and 19W... is the 18, 18" above the headlight or 18 top to bottom edge?
I had a Plexi II on there and could not get it adjusted to a comfortable position and hated looking through it at night. .
I do know that and it's a great suggestion. I should have mentioned that the Plexi II was installed by the PO and he managed to put some big unattractive scratches on it (not in the field of view fortunately). The scratches put it on my "to be replaced" list even if I had liked the setup.You do know that many cut their shields down so they can see over them don't you?
I had a Plexistar II that was cut down 3-4 inches...worked out great.
