I love my LRS shields, on both my old Road King and my current Ultra. Even though I ordered too short of a windshield LRS jumped at the chance to exchange my undamaged one for a taller one. The quality is perfect and the recurve works as advertised!

I bought one of these recurves for my Ultra in June, before a trip to AR. I love the shield and the price was great. Communication from LTS was great too.

Highly recommend for some looking to buy "made in USA".

I have a number of LRS shields for my Road King. One that is for the original shield hardware and a few I have collected for the Memphis Shades fairing. Love them.

Not long ago I needed a Mako for my Road Glide and there was some confusion in the phone order. This I discovered when I received the shield. I ordered (or thought I did) a 12" but received an 11". It was the weekend and I wanted to ride with the wife. Late in the day I called LRS and Jenn took the call after hours as she was leaving. Although they send a note not to install if you received the wrong shield, Jenn assured me and suggested I try the one I received and they would send an RMA if I did not like it.

As I prefer dark tint, correct height is critical. As it turns out the height is perfect and we could not be happier. Thanks LRS (especially Jenn) for awesome customer support and great products!!!!

$100 is a great price. Now they are on sale, $39.60 for Electra Glide. Fantastic. I'm placing my order today.

Correct height is critical. Normally I slightly slouch and look through the top of the windshield. When the windshield is hard to look through such as rain or snow I sit up strait and expect to see over the top.
So then how do you measure the Electra Glide windshield? From the middle screw to the top of the windshield?



As for the tint, never buy a tinted windshield if you ever expect to look through it. In bright daylight you may not think they diminish the view much but they never improve the view. The problem is your eyes adjust to the ambient light all around you but you are looking through the darkened windshield. If it was possible to dim the light everywhere except where you are looking then it would improve your view. That's what car tinting laws are all about. In cars you can tint any window but the windshield (local laws vary). This way your eyes are adjusted for dim light but you are looking through a clear windshield. Never tint a windshield. That's the law for cars and should be the law for motorcycles. Some motorcycle windshields are very low but when I'm going very slow on a gravel driveway I want to look right in front of my cycle.

If it's bright out use sunglasses. They dim the light everywhere and make it easy on your eyes. The advantage is you can take them off at night.

Yes I know tint is cool but I'm more worried about seeing where I'm going. Ride safe. Use a clear windshield.

On a related note never use those yellow tinted glasses for night driving. The experts all say tinting can only decrease light. (I guess we shouldn't need an expert to tell us the obvious)

If you go to their website it should tell you how to measure. At least it did for the Mako. Sounds like we have the same posture type, slouch when I can but going around tight curves in the dark as I do every morning on my way to work I sit up as I need to see all the road I can. And I agree about the yellow tinted glasses. Just makes everything look weird.

Yellow glasses make color pop more. Greens especially. For me, they increase the halo on oncoming lights at night. I like Amber/orange dark tint for day, yellow in low light, clear at night. I'm not trying to carry 3 pairs of shades though.

I have the 10" ultra elite light tint on my bike. I might order an 11", as the wind line seems to be right at the top of my head when I'm going 70ish. With a helmet on, I get light buffeting.

They tell you to sit on the bike and measure from the top edge of the bat wing to your mustache area for the height you want. Tricky to do without a helper and a level.

I have transient in RayBan frames. Presently I use a 17" clear Klockwerks shield on a Heritage. If I slouch a little it is perfect. So when it gets cold in January I will get a 19". Back to glasses. I have prescription so I will see about Wiley X. The best night glasses I have are Remington's from Walmart. Of course they aren't prescription, but long as I don't have to read anything I am fine.
