I have a 05 1800 and have considering putting on a different windshield but I noticed that there seems to be different ones for 05 and older and 06 and newer. What is the difference. I found one on ebay I want but it states it's for 06 and up. I knew there were some minor differences between the two but did not know that had different windshields.



Thanks,

Brian

The only difference is the 06> have a vent in them and the <05 don't.

Dave is partly right, from 04 the vent is standard. Also 01-02 shields have one more mounting slot than the later ones, which means an 03 and later shield will fit your 05.

The vent was standard in the 04's and newer GL1800's. A lot of 01-03 owners swapped out their windscreens with Tulsas just to get the new vent model. Honestly, Honda should have had it in the earlier models. Stupid of them to not include it. 1500SE's had a vent… why not the 1800's. Oh well…. water under the bridge now??

Ray is correct. Vent is standard from 04. Steve is also correct, from 2003 the shield will fit later models.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate you all taking the time to answer my question. I just did not want to buy a shield and not be able to use it.



This place is the best!!:thumbsup:
