I'm thinking about putting on the 6 1/2 inch windshield on my girls Street glide. Just wondering if it's gonna make a difference going from the standard 4 inch to the 6 1/2 inch. We are both over 6 foot tall and when riding the bike the wind hits us right in the face with the standard 4 inch windshield.

I'm hoping to defect the wind a little more. Any suggestions????

Thanks
Shane

I put a 6" shield on my bike first and it still wasn't enough. I then put an 8" regular shield on the bike and it was better but not great. I then put a 8" with recurve from www.clearviewshields.com. it is much better, but I am 6'5". I would look at getting the 6.5" with recurve from there. The recurve looks nice and makes the shield protect like it is 1.5" to 2" higher.

Good luck.

Clearview is the way to go

I also have the 8" Clearview with the recurve on my FLHX. It made a world of difference. I'm 5'10' and wouldn't go any shorter. They are good people to deal with but each windshield is made to order so it can take awhile.

I replaced mine with a 7", better but @ 6-1 I could have gone with a 9" and still have been able to look over the windshield.

Thanks again for all the help

I think our minds are made up and we will be going with the 6.5 inch recurve from clearview. I hope it's money well spent. Thanks again to everyone.

I'm running a 6.5" Clearview with the recurve , I'm 5'10" and it works great, either that or the 8 with a recurve is the ticket if you want to look over it.

As long as it puts the wind up and over a little more so my neck isn't getting jacked around I'll be happy. Hope this shield does the trick.

i think you will like the 8" or better, the 9.5" if you carry a passenger.
