Thanks in advance.
The aeroflow is very good in terms of protection.
I do a little offroad, so I went with an adjustable madstad.

zTechnik here... 2nd tallest. I'm 6'2" 32"-34" inseam, stock seat. It's still a bit short. I'm a bit disappointed in the results given the fact that I cannot return the shield and it was expensive.

I should've gone with the taller one but my dealer didn't carry it :(

Is there anybody other than Madstad that lets you just send it back if you don't like it?

CE Bailey advertises "test centers" but I called the one in SC and they have no inventory, and if they order one for me the expectation is I will buy it....

If a factory advertised test center has no inventory, I'd contact the company and tell them they need to new test center.

That would be too much like customer service... something that still seems lost of most companies today.

After buying the required mirror extensions (which STUPIDLY are sold separately), my vStream windshield was $300. I would be happy to pay $300 for it if it was exactly what I wanted. It is not :(

The dealership has a no returns policy, so I'm stuck with an expensive windshield that is really not much better than stock.

Aeroflow

Aeroflow kinda does.
Really it's an exchange:

AeroFlow's "Right Height Guarantee"
With so many factors, such as height, weight, inseam, seat, bars and even riding posture, to consider, determining the correct windscreen height is sometimes challenging. One size does not fit all. We want to help eliminate costly mistakes if your screen is not the right height. When purchasing your F650GS/F800GS AeroScreen, we'll provide height recommendations based on our tester input and ask you to measure the heights available. Together, we'll determine which height may be best for you. If you order based on our guidelines, and the height ends up being too short or too tall, we'll exchange it without a restock fee and even pay for shipping the exchanged screen to you. Buyer must contact us within 7 days of receipt to receive a Right Height Guarantee Exchange Number (GEN).

We both (wife and I) have use Madstad screens. She's using an 18" and I'm using a 20". We both love them. A little hard to adjust, but once you find the sweet spots, you tend to leave it there. No complaints.

I had the madstad on mine until I put the HDB guards on - they unfortunately hit the shield solidly either direction so the madstad had to go (of the two, definitely prefer the handguards!). Just looking for what will work now with these particular handguards[/QUOTE]

Hey Numb. I too have the HDB guards. Madstad website mentions they have modified their screen to work with handguards though they are not specific as to which brands. Was the screen you had issues with one of newer narrow versions or the previous wider ones?

Thanks ahead.

have you tried moving the brackets so the screen is further forward? in other words, increase the gap between the flyscreen and the windshield.

OMG

I have yet to buy the Madstad. Emailed them RE compatibility but no reply. Anyone out there successfully using HBD guards with the Madstad?

not a great shot of the screen, but here's my (XL) Aeroflow.. second tallest with the winglet thingies. I'm 6'3", and if it weren't for the little sun visor on my Shoei, I'd be perfectly happy.. I <3 'Flow, but the screen is for sale in the flea market.. The only downside of these screens IMHO is the price tag, and unfortunately at the moment, I need some of that back ;D

To Mirage 2 owners: they say on their web side:
The OEM instruments are relocated onto the dash, which also incorporates a platform to mount a GPS in the ideal 'head up display' position above the main instrument. If not required, the GPS platform can be cut off altogether, as it does not form a part of the structure.

can anyone explain what it mean? i am not sure which part can be cut off. is it the empty part above instruments? if so does it come already cut of you must do it?

thanks
