I'm in need of a new windscreen for my 2012 CCT and the parts descriptions of the "Premium Tour Windscreen" and the "Tall Windscreen" on the victorymotorcycles.com Web site are ridiculous.
The "Premium Tour Windscreen" for $250.00 is described as, "3” taller than the stock windscreen". Well how tall IS that? The "Tall Windscreen" for the eye-popping price of $325.00 "rises taller than the previous Tall Windshield...". How is this helpful?
My CCT came with a windscreen that is 18" from the middle of the cutout to the top. Do I have the "Tall Windscreen" or the "Premium Tour Windscreen"?
Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.
Just to cover the bases, in case you're new to all of this, i.e., I don't mean to insult you.
The CCTs come stock with what I believe is Vic's tallest windshield. To make that stable, they also come with a bracket to support it. The bracket has four screws to mount to the bike, and then, as I recall, six screws to mount the windshield to the bracket. So, if you have these extra brackets, you probably have the extra tall windshield that Vic started selling with the CCTs.
OTOH, if the windshield you have on now is mounted directly to the bike -- no brackets -- with four screws, then you don't have that super tall one. Did you get the bike used?
And how tall are you, and do you have an unusually tall or short upper torso? And do you like to look through or over a windshield.
I'm average height -- 5'9", 29"-30" inseam, all sort of normalish. I had a KlockWerks Flare for the first year. That looks nice, and worked well. But if you're much shorter than me, you'll wind up looking through the curved upper lip, air-deflector, part; it's not optically clear up there, not meant for looking through. If you're much taller than me, the KW Flare will result in buffeting -- I had a tall friend ride my bike.
I have an 11" Madstad shield and brackets now. The Madstad system does a fine job of calming the air, it's adjustable, and the shields come in several sizes. But a lot of folks think the brackets look fugly.
Last, there are are more than half a dozen vendors of out there -- Gustafsson, Cee Bailey, 7Jurock, Clearview, etc. -- with lots of sizes and types. Remember, once you take the brackets off a CCT, you just shop for plain old XC windshields, because that's what you have once the brackets are gone.
