At speeds of 55-65 the 5"windshield is great, just a little wind buffet to the helmet but the looks make it worth that. I think for long rides the 7" windshield would be the way to go and I do plan to purchase one, For the $ and the looks I can't think of one thing I don't like ( My friends too)I will be painting the faring the same Cobalt Blue as the Roadking but will leave the windshield the way it came (very dark). If you buy the same kit as me you won't regret it !!
I purchased the 5 inch tall black windshield and I love how it looks. For longer trips I am going to purchase a taller windshield, probably the 12 inch. The 5 inch looks great but I want more protection for the long road trips.
I recommend the 5 inch for riding around town or day trips, any longer trips, I recommend a taller one.
Ordered this to go with my Batwing fairing on my 2006 VTX1300C. Absolutely the best choice I could have made. Being that I am only 5'6", rids the fairing of a lot of wind buffeting while still giving me some protection from bugs! Was definitely a great choice! I chose the 5 inch black which fits my bike perfect! Extremely easy installation!
This makes my bike look so cool, if your looking for a great addition and want some wind protection this is the deal. I have had in the past a street glide bike and this addition makes the bike look almost like a street glide. Really different then any other Sportster 1200 very happy,and your service rep was incredible, so thanks again
