I purchased this windshield to replace my stock windshield that had developed numerous scratches over the years. I wasn't disappointed.
For me, it was an easy install. Took my time and didn't rush it. Installed in less than an hour. I love the shape and the way it channels the wind to each side instead of over my head. It's contoured to fit a little farther back, which I have no problem with. I adjusted the height the way I wanted it and the windshield has been an excellent addition for me.
Quality is about the best I have found. Also bought a new air vent to go along with it. Quality of the air vent is just as good or better than the OEM vent. I would rate this windshield very high for fitment, quality and longevity.
I was so excited to get this windshield and put it on my 2003 GoldWing. It installed easily. The first thing I noticed was how far back it tilts on the bike. In fact, the first couple times I got on the bike I hit the top edge of the windshield with my helmet, which never happened with the stock shield. Then I took it for a ride. I was getting buffeted so badly, and it was so noisy, I figured that I just had to adjust it to find the sweet spot. Well now, with over 2000 miles and after having tried every height position possible, I have come to realize that I need to stop blaming the rider/installer, and start blaming the lousy product. This is a poorly designed product which is several times worse than the stock windshield at reducing air flow and reducing noise. It just plain sucks. I'm in the process of shopping for another brand right now. If you want this one for half price, let me know and it's yours.
I replaced my stock 2004 very scratched shield with the VStream this week. I like the look on the bike. It gives it a more sporty look. I have only rode 100 miles or so. I can't say that I notice a big difference about the wind and actually the wind from the sides seems worse. I'm 5'9 and the vent view/ placement problem I have not noticed. HOWEVER the windshield is optically strange. It distorts around the vent and some at the sides. Below the vent you get a Star Trek warp speed look. I'm a bit bothered but trying to get used to it. My stock vent fit fine but the vent is a pain in the butt anyway. It is thicker and fights being bent around the mounting points. Closing the windshield locks are scary tight. I always run it full up so its not a problem for me. One of the main problems that I give it a 3 Star rating is the fit of the rubber grommet from the fairing. It just don't fit well at all. The sharp curves of the shield leave big gaps. I'm posting pictures of this on my photos . Bottom line is I'm not sold on it and may call Wingstuff about a return. I'll update soon.
The V-Stream Windshield does not fit my 08 GL1800 properly. The windshield is thicker than the stock windshield and its contours are deeper than the stock windshield which causes the front garnish on the fairing to not seat properly at the sides, just under the mirrors where an unsightly gap appears and cannot be closed. And since the contours of the windshield are deeper than the stock windshield there are gaps along the rubber strip along the top of the front garnish. I'm about ready to throw the thing in the trash since I scratched the lower portion and now I won't be able to get my money back. Such a waste! Do not purchase this product for a GL1800 model.
An update on the performance/ reliability of this shield. After 72k mi of mod-aggressive riding in all seasons & weather I'm happy to report my V-stream (preinstalled by dealer at purchase in 2011) w/ vent continues to perform. Very little pitting & very small craze at corner of vent now, but very little considering the topographies I've covered. Not sure why our Canadian friend review had such a difficult time w/ his- installer??? ;-) I highly recommend this shield for wingers. I'm 5'10"/ 175, sitting height 33-34" & I run the shield at full extension position at typical cruise speeds >80MPH. PS I measure a shield for its ability to reduce buffeting & reliable service in varying conditions; measuring dB gain/ loss is a bit much, in my opinion- these are not cages :-)
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
