Default Boardwalk "cheese" wedge on XCT?

Would any one know if the Boardwalk "cheese" wedge would fit on a Cross Country? I am thinking I like that better than the one that's on there...

Thanks! The blue was nicer to me than the sunset red, but it sure does pop when it's in the sun

It looks like the mounting bracket is unique to the metal wedges on the Boardwalk/Judge, so you would need those as well. I am planning on using these to get rid of the "cheesy" plastic wedges (pun intended).

I have all three sizes of the windshields for my bike now.

*Not sure it's the cheese wedge, but the shortly, the mid size and the original full size parts.

My take on them thus far:

Shorty; ideal for 'round town use, nice with the trunk removed (replaced by back rest) as it takes away the 'touring' look, making it more of a bagger look. Modest wind protection, bugs etc etc. Low speeds its fine.

Mid size; this one I ordered in (the shorty purchased locally from a private owner) and installed for "local trips". The wind is less than the shorty but more than the full size for sure. The only negatives I have about it are that for my size the top of the plastic is nearly at viewing height. With 2up it's annoying as the butt of the bike is lower then. The slight wrap around shape also can distort things if you were glasses as I do. I think I'll keep it but will likely cut 3/4" off of it at the top.

Full size; the original that comes with the XCT bike. Very nice for long rides but you will look through it not over unless you are quite tall.

Swapping these is a no-brainer. The extra arms for the upper bolts on the full shield are removed and only the lower bolt holes used for the mid size and shorty. The same screws work fine also. When fitting either of these you'll tuck the plastic in behind your fairing not over it on the outside. Seems iffy at first but yes it will go in. I put some adhesive on both the captive nut plates and the washers to hold them in place. However..it seems it still takes two of us to get it all started and the parts not falling off. (cover your tank) I think I may rivet the captive nuts next. And more rubber washers can be had at ACE if needed.

Todd:

The 'cheese wedge' is the triangular plastic cover between the front & rear cylinders

But yes, I like my full-size windshield; I am tall enough to see over it.
