Default CR Windshields

I have read a couple of negative comments about the fit of the Cee Bailey windshield.

I have a mid height OEM shield, but need a little more coverage.

Does anybody have the 7JuRock windshield?
Is there another tall shield out there that is recommended?

Thanks,
Robert

Robert,

Were have you read anything negative about Cee Bailey? What about the fit is bad?

For one Cee Bailey is one of the last companies that stand behind their product and has top notch customer service. The product they offer is top quility and the price you can not beat!

They make two diffrent style sheild for the CR one with built in lowers for CR that do not have the forged bars and one that is the same shape as the stock but at whatever height you want.

I have the one with built in lowers and all I can tell you is that it has been THE BEST investment that I have made for my bike! I get more protection for my body then I do riding a fairing bike (except for my hands). When I ordered my shield they called me back to make sure I did not have forged bars. Mind you, I had already paid. The guy told me "Oh by the way we lowered our price so I will be refunding you the difference. The new price will be posted on the website next week." Holy crap who does that now days!!!!!

As far as the other sheild you mentioned..... never heard of them. Sorry!

You can not go wrong with Cee Bailey.

Can't find the reviews (may not have been this forum) this minute, but the fit issues were related to the install. The install took much longer due to holes not lining up. I read at least three separate cases.

Being a fellow Chief, I am well versed in field modifications. But, when I buy an OEM replacement, I would expect a better fit.

How was your install experience?

For me no problem whatsoever with the fitting of the Cee Bailey shield. Went on real good. And I love it!

I Googled every format of "XR", "Cross Roads", "Cee Bailey", "Cee Baileys" and "Review" that I could think of. I couldn't find any but good reviews. I searched more vague "Cee Bailey Review" and brought up everything I could stand to read. Numerous reviews for numerous manufacturers and nothing negative.

Oh, there was a guy that said he ordered his too tall and had to look through it. Is that a bad review?

Here are a couple of them, from another Vic forum.

"I am exceedingly disappointed / dissatisfied. I scheduled an hour, took me 4 to get it rigged. RIGGED!!!
Would have sent it back, but was committed at this point."

"Love the new windshield on my XRD, but the install was a b**ch. ?????
Took me 2 hrs. plus. Nothing lined up like I thought it should. But I managed to get 'er done."

It is good to hear that a couple of people here did not have installation issues. The majority of the performance review all seem very positive. I may give it a try, at least I know going in that install *may* not be plug and play.

Maybe, just maybe, they put the hardware on wrong. If I remember right there was a sequence of what to tighten first and so on. Torque sequence if you will. You know tighten up the outsides first and then the center doesn't fit. Get it in a bind, holes don't line up? I don't know. Like I said I had no problems at all. Give 'em a try, I think you'll be satisfied.

Cgetlost,
Are you sure those reviews were for Victory Cross Roads (AKA XR) and not for a Harley XR1200? I saw several reviews that mentioned XR taht were actually for the HD XR1200 but I didn't bother reading them because they were'nt applicable.

I had no issues what so ever. It did take two sets of hands but my 10 year old son was the other set so no big deal and very easy going.

I'm telling you brother you will not be disappointed with them... Also, tell them you are military.

I have the Cee Bailey Dragon 17". Definitely stopped the "bobblehead"
The hardest part of switching was breaking the original screws loose. After that, it took about 5 min. Very easy.
