Finally, a decent windscreen that works. NationalCycle.com just released the Deflector DX model. I got the tinted version. They are great to deal with, too. I took the Fury on a 400+ mile round trip ride up the coast to Cape Canaveral last weekend. Man, no more wind buffeting. My arms weren't fatigued. Highly recommend them.
For all you purists out there, I know it's hard to envision a screen on that beautiful bike. I was going to sell the bike if I couldn't enjoy the ride. Now, I wouldn't part with it.

Is this a quick release style?
From reading the spec page.... yes it is.
N2594B Deflector Screen DX


H: 15.0 in. (38.1cm) W: 15.0 in. (38.1cm)


You asked for it! By popular request we have a Quick Release version of the ever popular Deflector Screen. This new shield comes with our QuickSet™ Quick Release Hardware that makes popping the screen on and off of your bike with no tools possible.


ACRYLIC -- Includes brand names such as ICI Lucite® and Acrylite®. Acrylic is known for its crystal clarity that stands the test of time with UV stabilization that prevents yellowing. Many years ago, during the development of the clear fairing, National Cycle found that ordinary drill mounting methods caused stress cracks and eventual breakage of acrylic shields. That's why we developed and use our patented No-Hole Ballsocket™ system on all of our acrylic products.


QuickSet™ Hardware: This patented hardware is designed for durability, ease of installation and hassle-free removal. Permits 10-second windshield removal, and complete fairing removal in under 1 minute. The QuickSet™ system incorporates the No-Hole Ballsocket™.




Fits 1.25 in. (32mm) bars. RAKE ADJUST™ HARDWARE: The Rake Adjust pivot mount allows easy, no tool screen angle adjustment without moving the mounting hardware. Rake Adjust is offered on some products with QuickSet™ hardware and on others with U-clamp (see below).

$134.95

Ordered this puppy myself. And before anyone starts yelling at me I agree completely with those who feel a windscreen big enough to do any good can't look good on a chopper. *HOWEVER* - a detachable screen which is still pretty small - 15x15 - doesn't look well, awful; lines are actually somewhat complimentary, but a 60 second popoff shield lets me run pure fury when I wanna style around town, but for those days when I just wanna peaceful solo ride somewhere, or, especially, if I have to take the interstates somewhere I can put the little shield on there and enjoy the ride without the turbine-exhaust-level buffeting endemic to the fury.

And btw that little flyscreen looks good but I doubt it'd do enough to be worthwhile - it's 4" taller than the Honda boulevard screen, and the Honda screen on did a small amount of windshield-ing, but it's only half as wide.

The deflector dx screen looks smaller on the bike with riders than in the pic, imho ...

National Cycle

Also, the rake is adjustable. You could (presumeably) adjust the shield rake to the forks and mightn't look toooo awful lol.

Ok guys. I'm breaking down my Fury and spending big $$$$$ on accessories let alone paint getting ready for Spring and I still can't help thinking about my 600+ mile trip of which 100 was in pouring rain! Geez, I could have used a windshield then!

The Windvest and National Cycle seem to be the only choices right now. Windvest at $350 approx. and the DX about $120. I see little difference except the DX is a 'no tools' windscreen release. I really DON'T want a windshield on my bike but for a long trip or bad weather I might just have to forego looks for comfort.

I think the National Cycle DX is the easiest to remove the shield but what about the handlebar bracket? Am I reading the promo correct in that just a few minutes that can be removed with an allen wrench as well??????

Has anyone come up with a 'Harley Type" quick release where the supports are on the tree and stay there...and look good????? Not black plastic????

Harley uses a Stainless clamp (4) with a nodule on each side of the tree to which the windshield brackets attach and a spring holds them in until released. Quick ---Easy---Not Ugly ----and stay on the bike. On / Off is a matter of 5 SECONDS!

I want a windshield ONLY for the long trips and bad weather as I agree with most here ---Windshields just don't look good on the Fury. But with spending $thousands to get my bike 'my own' I just don't want to put a cheap looking screen on to ruin it!

Any suggestions? (Besides "@#%$#@) :rolleyes:

I put the Windvest on my Fury and it works great. I think it looks good and matches the lines of the bike perfectly. Very high quality materials and a price that matches!

Tried to get a hold of my buddy about his..
I read on their website
Is the WindVest detachable?
The WindVest is easily removed by unscrewing 2 Allen bolts. The wrench to remove them is included with the WindVest Kit.

Thanks Tony, I do like the quality and looks of the Windvest just wish it was a 'no tools' removal. But for the looks I think I'll carry the wrench!

Anyone else know of another option, I would be pleased to know.

2 Allen head screws, takes about 2 minutes to remove windscreen from billet bracket. Allen head wrench is part of kit!

What Dave said!

After riding with my Windvest, I think I'll lose the allen wrench. But if for some foolish reason you want to remove it, it takes about 10 seconds and you can leave the clamps on the bike.

OK - I do realize some like to wave their tongues in the wind like dogs!:p

Cheers!
Spud.

Dave,

Post a pic of yours.

What size screen seems to be the most effective without going to roof with size ?:confused:
Typically one should be able to look over the shield and see the pavement a couple of car lengths ahead. This height directs the wind over your head while giving an unobstructed view of the road. In inclement weather you can then crouch a little lower to get full protection. Looking through the shield or having the top of the shield in your line of site gets old fast due to the bug splatter or the disorientation of looking partially through air and partially through the shield. You would then find yourself stretching to look higher and that is also tiring. Also remember there are no windshield wipers on a bike.

So to answer your question depends on your height. I am 5'10" tall and use a 14" shield which I find perfect. However, the staff at Windvest are very knowledgeable and if you give them your height they will advise what you should have. Windvest also has one extra hole to allow for about a 1" height variance.

As for tinted or clear shields, I like clear because it detracts the least from the clean lines of the Fury.

Wind vest recommends the 14 inch model for the Fury. The 10 inch model is mainly for the Big Dog choppers with extended forks, and the 18 inch model is too tall to see over......
