Just wanted to see if anyone has tried this shield yet? It is a quick release type, which is plus in my needs, but got a trip to TX in few weeks (815 miles one way) and trying to reduce fatigue issues. Looks pretty good for one that might be big enough to actually help a little. thanks ahead of time for any suggestions or replies>


National Cycle Deflector Screen DX- Light tint- Fury: Metric Thunder-Aftermarket Motorcycle Accessories, Motorcycle Parts & Motorcycle Exhausts.
Several people use these, try doing a search real quick for National or deflector or windshield and run down the choices :D

You can check my profile for the clear one. They are quick release and look good in low position. But in low position wind hits you about neck height. I have mine a few clicks up and wind hits me at eye level. Full up it will hit you in the forhead. Does keep wind off your bod though.

If you get it, it will vibrate at the bottem if you follow install instructions. It has to rest on the back of the head light to get rid of this vibration from wind. I put a small piece of clear velcro between it and the head light to keep from rubbing.

I have the tinted Deflector dx. I'd have dumped this bike in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the Deflector dx. I'm only 5'-8" so I have no complaints.
I use a piece of rubber door trim between the shield and light; gotta have 3 points of contact, just like the directions state, to keep from vibrating.
No more sore* shoulders and back trying to fight that wind.

*of course working out every day can't hurt either. I feel zero fatigue after long rides thanks to 3x week upper body workouts.

i went through the windshield thing and bought the memphis shades quick disconnect for $220 and found it helped but got buffeting from underneath....bought the lowers to match for $80 and that was the ticket....still air.....i have now sold my fury and have them for sale for $150 with shipping....believe it or not setup doesn't look that bad and whole setup comes off in less than a minute....perfect for a trip where you want to remove when you get there

Mounted high, the National Cycle deflector shield is very effective for reducing fatigue. I have ones on my Speed Triple, my Harley Softail and my XS650. I used to have one on my former VT1100 Shadow, on which it was good enough as a shield to use while riding across the US and back.

The only problem with mounting it high (like 6 or so inches above the headlight) is that it doesn't look good there.

I'm planning on getting one to use on the Fury, but only used for longer trips, and removing it completely when not used so as to keep the Fury looking right around town...

I bought a national windshield that I couldn't get to fit exactly "right"... it mounted with ball/sockets... and while on a Patriot Guard mission one of the balls popped out of the socket.

It was prolly my installation error, but not wanting to take any more chances I sucked it up and got a Memphis Shades Big Top, black gradient shield... solid mount and great coverage - looks reasonably cool for a windshield on a chopper too... :eek:

YMMV!
