Default 1st test, New Cee Baileys Cee Silencer shield

So, Joe from Cee Baileys returned my 2011 XC yesterday with a new shield…the Cee Silencer. I saw it when I got home from Florida late last night. First impression…Boy it is huge!. But, typical CB quality, no distortion, etc, PLUS, the Gold Wing vent. I have a GW and also had this vent on my last Road Glide and love it.

This morning I tested it in three configurations, 1) with the CB hard lowers, the summer “Flectors”, 2) without the Flectors, and 3) with the 2012 Victory hard lowers (shown in the pics).

This thing rocks! With the CB lowers it was very very nice, I initially gave it a 10. It was a cool 65 degrees, but with the vent open I could clearly feel the air. Would be great on a warm day. I rode with a helmet with the face shield up. I had the XM on, at volume 10 (out of 26) at 80 mph.

With the Flectors off, there was a lot of air, it has been quite a while since I have ridden the XC without them and I guess I forgot how much air comes up from under the fairing. However, I didn’t really seem to get any buffeting. Mark is going to test this shield later this week, and I will be curious what he notices if he tests w/o the Flectors.

Last, but not least, I bolted on my new factory hard lowers. This changed the rating system. I would have put them at a 12 (scale of 10). I also rode my buddy’s Vision, which have excellent wind management, and, to me, the XC was better!

For me, this shield will be perfect in cold weather or on longer trips, thank goodness the XC shield is so easy to change out.

Thumbs up Awesome!

Wow, that looks so good. The shield is integrated so well with the bike. Awesome!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Looks like it would be an excellent long haul shield. Any idea how much taller it is than the stock 9" shield? I realize it can't be measured the same way since the shield covers the stock lower vent. Might be able to place the 9" shield on top of it where the holes match; then take a measurement.

13 1/2 " taller. Definitely a see thru.

When you coming to Marc's?

Wow! That baby pushes some wind! Definitely for touring. Like you said; it's a great thing the shields are so easy to change out. Did you have opportunity to try one of the new Klockwerks shields sold by Victory?

I've been doing some studying on changing the cams and I might give it a go on my own but maybe call Marc or someone for help if I need it. I figure it would probably take me a full day or more to do it but I have all the tools, lift's, etc. that I'd need.

The PCV w/AT is in and made a distinct difference with just the Map Fuelmoto installed. Idles smoother and winds up quicker. I'll be messing with the tune this week to become more acquainted with the software.

Bob, if you have a lift, Marc (and I) might ride over to Havasu, Marc's biggest issue with doing cams somewhere else is not having a lift (back won't take bending over). I only have a couple weekends available the rest of the year, but I only "supervise" anyway.

Do you have a day job or retired?

Hey Greg - seems like whenever I think about adding a new bike/rig to the stable, you've beat me to it. XC must be great if you settled on one.

Utopia. Police backrest, you have to ask them for it, not on their web site (at least not when i got mine).

Works great!!
