Default XC flip windshield

Does anyone have experience with the flip windshield? I am 6ft and the windshield that came with my bike lets the wind hit me at nose level. Will the flip put the air over my head?? Thanks

I had a 8 inch one on my harley street glide and I could see over the windshield just fine but the wind went over me. Even on cold night going home it felt like a lite breeze on the head. There is a company out there that in vented the flip for harleys and he sells more then he can make. I have a vision so I don't need one but I don't think you;ll be disappointed if you buy one.

I have a flip on my Cross, I am 5-9 and I don't care for it . The curve hits right in my field of vision, maybe a backrest would help by making me sit more upright. It DOES work by sending the air over my head as designed. I just wish they had one a few inches shorter. Still looken...

I have the XC flip and the lowers. I'm 6' and the top comes to about my chin/mouth. The two together definitely help with the wind at highway speeds (legal and beyond). It wasn't until I hit over 70 mph, that I started noticing some buffeting and it was still nothing like the short shield. I thought I saw somewhere that someone had a shorter flip already available or would soon, Cee Bailey maybe?

Is it true the Gustafsson shields don't come with the holes pre-drilled so the customer has to buy a drill bit and "hopefully" get the holes drilled right?

I've got an idea for the XC shields. I just need someone to make them for me. I can sell them at a good price if I can get them made for a good price.

With the shield I have in mind; there would be no distortion at the top and you could look over the top.

Yes, You do have to drill your own holes. I purchased a drill bit when I bought the flip windshield. Shield also comes with a Dremel stone bit to open up the hole to proper diameter.

It's easy to get the holes proper if ya are able to remove the outer fairing. Some don't and not really necessary. But you can do it much easier. Took me about 1 hour to do it all.
The results were worth it to me.
