Kawi Windshield

So I thought i'd start a thread specifically for the windshield. Got the one from Kawi (the lg/17"). It was supposed to come with a "windshield protector" (the strip that goes around the outside edge), but it did not. Husband installed it for me, seemed like a pretty straightforward and simple installation (yes, i helped

I don't have but an hour of ride time with it, but so far, I like it. The top of the shield comes to about chin level (I'm 5'7") so i look over it and have good vision . I like that it does not even come close to interfering with my line of sight. I was worried the wind would come over the shield to hit my head, but it does not...it goes over my head and there is no buffeting.

It's going to be a great weekend here so i will get a lot more opportunity to test it out. I will give another report after the weekend both with and without helmet.

And, I like the look of it....simple, clean and classy looking. Will post more photos as i get them.

put on a 100 miles today. Warm and windy. And even though it was windy, i was able to wear a baseball cap the whole time. The windshield is good....

got this one :



136 euro, made by Puig, works like a charm!

the Kawa screen is way to expensive, and it takes Kawa months to get it to the Netherlands :-(

Very nice windshield!

My wife is thinking about getting one. As you say, the Kawa screen is very expensive. Which Puig windshield is? Highway?

Thank you very much.

Has anyone else found aftermarket windshields for the Vulcan S yet?

I've enquired with a few places but no luck so far...

Regards
