Are they good? They have them on sale on E-bay for 1500'sin all different configurations. Supposedly they are a copy of the stock windshield. Does the stock windshield have a slight recurveto it?It's hard to tell what's stock anymore since most of them have been replaced. If so does the Cee Bailey also have the recurve? I now have a Tulsa that needs replaced and need to get the airstream pushedup higher to get it out of my wife's face. The Tulsa tilts back so much that the airstream just goes over my head and right back down. She's tall which makes it worse.

I bought a CB windshield this winterthat was - 2" shorter than stock height and a smoke tint.

Here's my experience with it, so far

I find better wind/rain protection, better visibility, less buffeting for the rider(don't know how it works for a passenger as I ride solo) even though it's 2" shorter. It is a little bit widerand is a lot thicker, so it doesn't 'flex' like the OEM shield.





I have since removed the chrome trim as kit bothered my 'sight lines'.

Also, I got a promotion email the other day and if you order it now, free shipping!

The Cee Bailey doesn't have the recurve feature.

Carol complained about air going down the back of her jacket when we had the Tulsa Tall, but not with the CB shield.

I get wind on the top of my helmet, and when I have the visor up, bugs hit the inside of the visor, but seldom on my face, however, looking over the windshield is so important to me that a little airflow is a minor annoyance (hey, it's a motorcycle).

There are so many bugs out here (compared to southern Ontario) that I had to stop every once in a while to wash bug stuff off theTT just so I could see clearly, but with the CB, the bug stuff is out of my critical vision area and the air flow blows all but the very biggest bugs (bees etc) up and out of my face area.

Thank you for that comment.

Well, the sunshine is waiting for me, our non-biking friends have just left, and I'm off to do more windshield testing

Regards,

I put a Cee Bailey screen on my '93. It was excellent with no distortion and no stress color bands when I wore my polarized sunglasses. It is a bit thicker than stock so it takes a bit of trickery with the mounting screws if you want to keep the vertical adjustment feature.

I puta -1Cee Bailey windshield on last month and love it so far. The clarityof the screen is amazing to me and as Exavid said, no color bands while wearing my polarizedsunglasses. I cannot comment on the buffeting for the passenger since I have only riddenwith it solo. Customer service with them is excellent. I had 1 question during my installation and called them up andhad a great talk with theguy that theyfinally connected me with.

Looks like Cee baily uses Acrylic for their shields. I try to avoid Acrylic because it shatters and makes sharp knife-like shards in an accident or if over stressed. They, Cee Baily, say "aircraft acrylic"... but it is not Lexan like OEM windshields and shatter-proof aircraft windshields. Lexan bends.
Just experienced another acrylic shield shatter this last month. One of the riders in our group went off the road and bounced off a fence. Minor damage to the bike and him, but his acrylic shield shattered into sharp shards. Fortunately he did not get thrown through it!
Just my opinion on the subject and wanted to share.

interesting feedback, thx for sharing.

after reviewing windshield threads, +'s/-'s of different manufacturer's / configs, i ordered a cee bailey just last week.

hopefully i won't have to deal with the pointy-edge stuff you refer to (and i wonder what cee bailey would have to say on the subject.)

Education is never as expensive as ignorance.

I always find the winshield threads interesting. As you see in my picture, I think I have the world's tallest windshield. My riding mates call my bike the "pope mobile". I plan on getting a shorter one with a vent like the one I have. The C Baily sounded good until the sharp edges thing came up. I see alot of windshieldson eBay for about $150 + shipping.

Never slap a man who is chewing tobacco.
