Voyager 1700 (11) Windshield

Need to know where I can buy windshield (varieties and size) for a Voyager.
Looking for shorter one but at the same not too much wind for the passenger.

Any lower than the stock will increase the wind hitting the top of your head and your passengers face.

I have the Clearview but their tallest is two inches shorter and I do not like it that short. But I ride in the rain a lot too. Rain does not stop me from riding any....

But I have always tried to get taller replacement windshields. Clearview made one 2 inches taller and 2 inches wider each side for my Venture and that was the best windshield I ever had.

Rifle, Klockwerks, Clearview, and I think Windvest all make aftermarket shields for these. I have a 14" rifle that I really like . . . had a 12" Kawi on it too (Kawi has the stock 18", a 14" and 12" I believe) that i got off eBay. Moved up to the 14 after putting on my DayLong seat as it brought me up too far above the windshield. I am 5'10" and don't notice any buffetting now (as it was with the 12" before the RDL).

Google all the companies I listed and choose what works best for you.

I have a 12" Windvest, and will probably get another one, or maybe try a Clearview when I need it. The "recurve" they both do really does work to push the airstream higher.

My passenger is out in the wind a little (on a higher than OEM Russell Daylong seat), but finds the Windvest better than any other low screen I've tried. I'd never put a screen on there that I have to look through, so she's learned to live with it.

I have a 12" Rifle on my Voyager, which I put on before Kawasaki offered it's own. I don't notice any buffeting, but then I'm only 5'8". And I prefer looking over the windshield rather than through it, unless it's raining.

Stock is 18"......bought mine this Fall thinking I wanted a KlockWerks flip (9") on mine....BIG MISTAKE, So I went with a Kawasaki 14", PERFECT I am 6'1", 30" inseam.

If anyone wants a 12" Kawasaki or a KlockWerks 9" flip, let me know, I'll make you a good deal. THANKS

I have tried many shields 5 in the garage now. The 14 inch is what works best for me. I'm 6ft and no wind buffeting.
