Thats gotta give you a lot of height and angle options.

Anyone tried this combination ?
No, but I agree, it will double your options.

I used a grease pencil to draw inch lines on the stock windshield and rode for a couple weeks like that to determine what size shield I wanted (Height wise). Ended up with a 13" 7Jurock with the flip. Awesome shield! Still no buffeting and I can see over easily.

6' w/ 32 inseam.

With my Ness Flip (before Madstad) i only experienced buffeting at speeds above 68 or 70 mph.... Prior to there all was swell... Is that the same experience most of you had too or did all of you experience dirty air when going under 70 too?

About the only downside I can think of with the Madstad brackets is using them with shield that has a recurve or flip at the top because of the distortion of the area in the flip. If they shield is tilted up to the point of needing to look through it; that distortion would be unbearable IMHO.

This would only be a downside for someone wanting to look through the shield at times. Otherwise it would not be an issue for someone who never wanted to look through it.

The plus is that the flip sends the air flow higher, obviously, so the need to look through it might be negated.

I guess I need to find a flip shield and experiment with that or just trade with someone who has one for a day or even just a few hours.

I didn't use the Milstad brackets. The shield works great as is.

I did the Madstad brackets and I don't have bugs and debris plastered on the inside of the shield. No more wind turbulence behind the windshield either.

Here is a view from the seat with the Klockworx shield and the Ness Modular Bars.

Looks like my bike without my cool mirrors but with your cool bars... How do you like the Ness bars? Are your hands still protected from cold wind by the fairing?

Have you done a multi hr trip yet in our winter weather?

I'm liking how I've getting the XCT set up. Hands are still out of the wind, even with the short windshield. The air flows over and under the windshield, but shoots up at the angle that I set it at.
The bars are far more comfortable then the stock ones. I think the angle of the stock bars at the grips is ergonomically incorrect. The Ness Modular Bars are very adjustable. I wish they could go back a bit more for my short arms.
And yes; I have done some multi-hour rides with the new set-up.
(Eugene to Drain to Reedsport to Florence and back to Eugene)

Speaking of rides: If you want to ride with the Eugene group once in the while post on this link to be included. I am trying to get the word out before Spring so that there can be some Victory Group Rides. KEN

I have the original Klockwerks shield and was looking for a couple of inches of more height. I want to look over shield but wondering if more height with the Madstad system would give the passenger more protection???

I haven't ridden on the back to know if there is wind back there. I don't think there is. With the Madstad brackets you can adjust the height and angle of the windshield. I have tried different adjustments to see what works. While riding; I would reach around with my hand to feel where and how much wind was moving.
