Default Going to try Madstad brackets.

I was going to buy a full Madstad setup with the brackets and an 11" dark gray windshield, but I couldn't find a deal on the 11", Madstad has a sale on demo 9" and 13" Vic setups but none for the 11" So I was back & forth on trying one of the other sizes or paying full price for the 11"
Until this morning when @LILMAGS500 made the suggestion that I just get the brackets and use them with my windshield which is a 12" Gustafsson Eurofilp...perfect Hopefully I'll have them soon, then I can report back.

Me too, I haven't read a bad thing about the Madstad....but you were the motivating force.
The under tank buffeting is pretty well under control, but I still get some over the shield at higher highway speeds and I have lot of wind noise. On the other hand, when I'm off the highway I wouldn't mind more wind in my face. I have to say it, last Sunday after riding the Indians with the adjustable wind shields I really liked the ability to have that adjustment.

Love my Madstad brackets and shield. Being able to adjust for back roads and highway is well worth it.

I plan to do this as well. I installed the billet ace fork deflector as well. In my research I found that you are NOT supposed to use a flip windshield with the Madstad brackets.

LOL...guess I'm the only guy that did not care for them...instead I went with the Cee Bailey's CUSTOM height windshield. Yes, I have owned both. I was very disappointed in both the application of the Madstad Brackets/Windshield as well as the aesthetics. In other words...it looked like crap, and performed "marginally" better FOR ME. Others I am sure are very pleased, I just wanted to point out that not everyone was happy with it...I now have about 40,000 miles on this single Cee Bailey's Custom height windshield.

Funny, I have been running a tall Cee dragon and I hate the look of it. Maybe the flip moves the pocket of protection too far forward when angled on the bracket?

I have the original design at 14". Love it. I have had 4 different shields on this bike in 5 years and this is by far the best. The only change I will do on the next shield is that I will get one without the vent (cutout) at the bottom. Next time it will be filled in...
