Default Short Dark Windshield

Any suggestions on a dark tint windshield similar to the one that's on back order until at least September? I'd like to get this tall flip off my bike this week.

Gustaffson Euroflip, any tint and size you want with better optical quality than the rest of these flip shields.

I agree and get the cone shaped grinder for use with the Dremel tool to drill the holes. Much easier and much less chance of cracking the acrylic.

How do they compare to the short flip that's carried by Victory?

I had horrible experience with Gustafson. They would not take a windshield back, period....at least for me. Unbeleivble arrogance. They don't know how to drill holes in a windshield, but presume it is easy for you? That way, they NEVER have to return a shield. Doesn't matter why...wrong size, optics, etc. Clever? Maybe. Or maybe .....?

In my case, I didn't want to drill hole. The guy with the fake Italian accent said it was so custom they couldn't take it back. I never touched it, and finally shipped it back. They of course, accepted it, but refused a refund. Bunch of crooks in my humble opinion.

Try Joe at CeeBaieys, he stands behind hs products. Not important if you are happy with what you get, critical if you aren't.

Better looking, better optically, better wind deflection and a lot more height and tint choices.
