Cheap Windshield?

Wondering if anybody has tried one of these on a Vulcan 900 or other bike? I'm looking for something just to knock the wind down. Not expecting super quality or anything but curious if they are decent enough to use. Any thoughts are appreciated as always.

I'm curious too. Seems too good to be true for that price.

It made me curious as well. So....I ordered one but I ordered mine from Mutazu instead of off ebay. It is identical to the ones on ebay but I have had previous dealings with Mutazu so I went that route. When it comes in I'll see how the real product is and post a few pictures up.

Any thoughts you have on it would be appreciated greatly. I was thinking that it might just be more fiddly to get adjust right because of the more "universal" nature of the design but if that's the only real issue then I will get one.

I really want a batwing for my classic but that is going to take more time while I save up more funds. I am hoping that this will knock some wind over my head and black a few of the bugs that are starting to return. For the price I couldn't help but investigate

I'll certainly let you know how it is as soon as it comes in and I get my hands on it.

I have this windshield in the smoke version. My wife got it for me for christmas. I of course installed it minutes later. but since we have had so much snow the few rides i had with it on were around 45 mph. last week now that spring has actually hit Prescott Arizona i was able to start riding to work and at highway speeds the sucker started tilting back at me. I tightened everything up as tight as i could and yep still tilted back at me! as far as im concerened its JUNK!

The previous owner of my bike had installed one from memphis shades, fits the custom perfectly.They arent terribly expensive.it gives good protection except your face,its too short for that, and I am 5ft 9.My shield is clear, has no metal crosspieces like the one you posted.

Bikeless and hating it.

I can see that shield failing, it ties down on handlebars. Might put some kind of rubber between the the bars and the goose neck, I use to use a old tube from a tire to stop things from rotating on handlebars , just hack a patch out
