Based on the glowing recommendations from several on this board, I ordered a CB windshield today. 2" shorter than stock with a NACA vent and gray tint. Should have it in a few weeks. This tall windshiled isn't really for me, I like to see unobstructed. Went with the 2" lower since another rider of my height (5'8") said it was perfect for him.

May let the old one go, or if not, keep it for winter riding. We'll see how the new one works out.

I still have my old windscreen.

Why throw it away.

A bit of tape and a sabre saw and presto! a new shorty to have on hand for summer.

Congrats on the Cee Baileys, I think you will not be disappointed with it. Let us know how that NACA vent works out. I ordered mine with the regular vent and will never order another windshield brand!!

Yes indeed, I think you'll like it. I really liked the one I put on my 1500. I ordered a stock height with no vent but ended up cutting it down 1 1/2". I had to modify my windshield mounting screws due to the extra thickness of the C. Bailey. Without lengthening the screw shoulders it wasn't possible to move the windshield up or down. As it turned out I wasted my effort because I never moved the windshield from the lowest position. I should put on on my 1800 too, these things are very solid with no distortion even when wearing polarized sunglasses. They also make the bike a bit quieter to ride at speed since the windshield doesn't vibrate at all in the wind.

I have a stock height Cee Bailey with the NACA vent. The next one will probably have the closeable vent. I don't think that the NACA does all that it is cracked up to do.

Of course that could be quite a while. They are very sturdy.

Santa brought me one with the visor vent. I love it.

I also have a new Cee Baileys short windshield. I have the same problem as exavid. I think I am going to try some lock tite on the screws to make it adjustable again.

Mine has done well for me. I have the ARCA vent and is it ok. I would probably buy the next one with the regular vent just because I ride into the winter and it does put some wind on you. Great in the summer though

Sounds like there are a lot of CB fans out there in Goldwing world I hadn't thought much about lowering or raising, Just figure to put it at a good height for vision and go with it, unless I get some passenger complaints. I had a short windshield on my last bike with no vent. Main reason I got the vent at all was mainly to address pressure equalization some. Besides, budget was a little tight and $75 for a vent seemed a little high. Just from reading the forum, looked like some venting was needed.
