Charlie6 had made a comment on a previous post that my windshield on my GS was huge. Yes, it’s bigger than stock. It is about the same size as the one on my Ural that I use for winter. It’s great for breaking the cool fall weather, but much too hot for summer use. I prefer to ride without if possible. I hate buffeting.
Here is a photo of the stock windshield. It is small and made a lot of noise. I really hated it. For reference, I have a proper fitting helmet, and I usually wear ear plugs. This windshield just had a bad design with a little scoop on the tip that caused the wind to swirl and roar in my helmet.
Enter the CalSci (California Scientific) XL Shield. I started with a medium, but found it just as loud as stock. If I’m going to spend that kind of money, I wanted it to be quiet. I got a set of tobinators as well to help control the adjustment.
This setting works well for me.
Lots of adjustment possibilities, and easy to take off for summer use.
Here you can see a shot of me in relation to the shield
A couple more for good measure.
I’m happy with the setup.
I will write-up the install in a future post.
