Just got the Cee Bailey screen for my 1500 in the mail yesterday. Mine has the vent built in. I am hoping to fit it this weekend, so I am grateful for the washer info. Since I live in England, I doubt it will be long before I shall be able to report how the vent performs in rain!! I have bought the 4" higher model on the basis that if I like it I will keep it high, if not, I can cut it down.

For anyone this side of the pond, thinking of buying a Cee Bailey screen, I can thoroughly recommend the sole Agents, "Woodys" Mike the proprietor and Alison, were very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Once I have had a chance to try out the screen in earnest, I will report on my experince of it.

New screen fitted, now going for a test ride, two up. First reaction is, I like it because it sweeps forward, unlike Tulsa, so less chance of my smacking my nose on it as I mount and dismount!! I have concern about the vent, but it isn't raining amazingly, so probably won't be able to report on that yet.

Went for a spin last night. LUXURY!! No more buffeting, for me or Helen.

I was looking through the screen, something I haven't experienced on any of my previous bikes screens. Since the screen is brand new, it is absolutely fine, with no distortion or light problems. If it gets scratched in the future, that would become a problem. The NACA vent doesn't send wind at me at all. Something I wasn't expecting, is that the headlight beam illuminates the upper edge of the bottem of the vent. At first I was worried about whether this might prove distracting, but I am happy to report that it is forgotten about, once the novelty has worn off.

We rode in very bright head on sunlight, ( dangerous at the best of times) through the dusk and into full darkness. At no time was I unhappy with the screen. The engine noise that we heard increased, so if anyone had noisy pipes that might be an issue, but for me I liked it, both because I like the sound my Wing makes and also because I would hear anything wrong with her.

Intercom sound quality is better, we do not get wind noise through the mikes, blasting in each others ears now, downside is I can't pretend I didn't hear Helen:goofygrin:

When I ordered the screen from "Woodeys" I talked at length to Mike and he is now aware of this site. I believe he is going to watch it for a while and then maybe make contact with Steve. Any riders on my side of the pond, who wish to change, I can thoroughly recommend the screen.

The only thing I was unable to test yesterday, was the rain and vent thing. Without wishing it upon us, I will let you know what I think as soon as we are "blessed" by the rain Gods!!
