I ride a 2008 Vulcan 1500N Fi an I am ready to put a windshield on it. My reasoning for wanting one is that the wind kick my butt pretty badly. I use my bike as a commuter about 8 months out of the year. Here in Az, my work route is mostly open highway and usually windy.
I have not bought a windscreen yet because I have not found one that fits me. I am in a word, an Olgre. I am 6'6" and pushing 300#, so my bike looks big until I am sitting on it
I have gone out an gotten measured for a windscreen a few times over the past few years, at different places, and I am consistently told that I need a 24" - 25" screen.
Needless to say, I have not found one made that size. However, the other day, I came across Clearview Shields. They make a windshield that is 22.5" and has a recurve on the top of the screen that helps push the wind up an additional couple of inches.
This might actually work for me.
Unfortunately, they do not sell mounting hardware and state that their screens are made to fit OEM hardware.
My bike does not come with an OEM windscreen that I am aware of.
Is there OEM Windcreens for the 2008 VN1500N?
Is there an equivalent mounting hardware?
Do you know of any other manufactures out there that have windscreens for people of my stature?
I sent Clearview Shields an email, but I have not heard back yet.
thanks for your feedback
