Default V Curve Windshield Review

I haven't like the large windshield on my CCT since I bought my bike back in 2012. Its too tall and I can't see over it. Not that I need to all the time, but when it fogs up it becomes dangerous. I have to carry a rag and wipe it down constantly.

So I found V Curve. Looks good and caught a sale over the winter. Finally got around to putting it on and lets just say it looks good and it does a good job of still moving the air around you.

It's a pain to put on because the curve doesn't match the curve of the bike. I had to modify 3 of the 4 mounting holes. Luckily the screw heads cover it. Then the plastic is so distorted from the bend that if you do need to look through it good luck!

I was looking through it at a car coming in the other lane and it looked as though the car had been squished down and widened out. It's like having a fun house mirror on the bike. lol

Needless to say I am not impressed and would not recommend them! Guess I'll finally just have to cut my stock shield down a couple inches.

after every ride I spray my windshield with Macquarie's wax detailer
so when caught in fog or rain it tends to bead off. round file elbow grease

Good idea on the Maguire's wax VJ. It will probably help keep the bug guys from sticking as well.

After a 390 mile day Sunday and doing a lot of hills and twisties this windshield has got to come off for sure. The Distortion is horrible! The times when you have to look through it with the distortion really messes with you! I will say that it did a good job of keeping the wind off my chest and helmet buffeting was only minor at highway speeds.

I got a Gustafsson Euro Flip and I think it is great. Very reasonably priced and made for the XCT; no drilling needed. I got it almost a year ago and have made several trips with it.
