This winshield provides excellent view and wind protection. It is a little thicker than the stock shield so you need to be careful when torqing the screws. Two of the 3 screws torqued per the manual but the screw on the left would not torque to 25 in. lbs. as recommended in the owners manual. It pulled the insert out of the fairing. So I had to get a new insert and install it. Then I didn't torque that screw to the recommended value. I just tightened it to a snug fit. It looks great and all is well.
This windshield is awesome! It is thicker than the original equipment, so it is sturdier. It took me twenty minutes to remove my old windshield and install this one. All the screw holes lined up perfectly. I saw a previous review and it said that the middle screw hole was missing. This is not true. Even though it is thicker, there was no problem at all with it fitting. Once I installed the new windshield, I was able to see exactly how badly the original one was scratched up.
I ordered this 10” windshield to replace the 13” that was on my Ultra Classic. With the 10”, it didn’t block my forward vision like the 13” did because I could look “over” the shield (preferred) rather than “through it”. The slipstream that occurs naturally on the bike is just right at 10”. The wind and bugs glide right over the top of my head, although a bird or large insect like a bumblebee might not. Quality and value were excellent with this company, as well as speed in shipping.
Windshield fits as well or better than OEM. I had a 12" factory smoked windshield on the bike and wanted a clear one to improve night visibility. This is perfect. Thick and solid product, it doesn't vibrate a bit and is just the right height to send bugs OVER the head and give you a place to duck below while being able to see. Their decal is easily removable so you can't tell this isn't actual factory. Removal of the OEM is quick and simple. Take out the three screws, let the original kind of "pop" forward off the posts, and the whole things slides up and out. Reverse the process to install the new one. I'd buy another in a minute and may, since multiple sizes and tints are offered.
when i bought my 03 harley it had a replacement windshield in it. it was thin and flimsy i replaced it and the second was no better it broke shortly there after i got this windshield from dennis kirk and it is so far superior to the two previous i think it is better than origional equipment this product is highly reccommended i did remove the manufacturer decal though
