Windscreen

If anyone is looking, I just purchased and installed the Slipstreamer Spitfire windshield to my Jackpot and it is working very well. It is an easy install and very easy to take on and off. I'm about 5' 10" and at the shields highest setting it is at a perfect height for me. Plus, it actually looks pretty good on there too!!

If it looks so good, how about some pics??? I actually am interested in getting a windshield, but never knew how tall of one to get?

Yes, some pics would be nice. A front and side view, if possible. Thanks. I've been looking at several types myself.

"Superfly Windshield"
Jackpot™ Mini Standard Windshield

I'm not trying to hijack the thread but does anybody have one of these and can provide pics of your bike?

Looks really good! I rarely get on the highway but when I did last weekend, I felt like I was going to be ripped off the bike. I could definitely see the need for a windshield on long trips. Do you plan to leave it on most of the time and is most of your riding on the highway? At it's highest setting, does it keep the wind off your chest and face?

I appreciate the purpose of them but not a big fan of windshields. For me, I would fine with one small enough to keep just the wind off the chest.

I leave it off most of the time. It is nice to have for the longer trips and it does keep the wind off the face and chest without any buffeting to me. It is so easy to take on and off anyway, it only takes a few seconds.

as much as i like the idea of a windshield it just does not go with these bikes at all ... just takes to much away from the bike... just like the seat u have, yes great seat and comfort but it takes away from the sleak lines of the bike... but on the other hand comfort is better then being cool i guess...

Wondered how that type of shield would hold up on the highway at 70 mph, it appears to only have the two mounting points on the shield. Does it "wiggle" around or is it pretty solid? Someone else was looking at a shield like that in another thread.

I went through the same dilemma with my bike as far as finding something that looked "right", style wise. It had one of the factory superfly mini-shields when I bought it. Better than nothing, but wanted something more. Ended up going with the batwing fairing, looks better than any kind of shield I found. Easy on & off in about 15 seconds.
