Windshield: $55 + S&H if ordered as a replacement glass only. +$10 if you want it tinted (very light tint)
1/2" Plexiglass drill bit: $10
Once my windshield came in, the OEM mounting holes did not match up with the aftermarket mounts. I had to drill 2 1/2" holes to use the mounts. Used a plexiglass drill bit, covered area with masking tape, and drilled away. No issues at all. Started with a tiny pilot hole, maybe 1/8". Make certain the spot you drill is well supported, such as up against a scrap piece of wood.
Installed the setup last weekend, took about 20 minutes once the windshield was prepped. Had to stop to get longer winshield mounting screws, as the mount kit was made for a thinner shield w/out washers. Added about $3 to total cost.
1st drive, noticed less wind on my body, zero "flopping" of the windshield (my old setup was very unstable due to poor design), with minimal turbulence. Adjusted the position/angle of the windshield after this ride.
2nd drive, virtually no turbulence and much less wind noise on helmet. Works GREAT. Highly recommend. Will post pics soon.
BTW, I'm 5'8" and am clearly looking over the windshield. There is plenty of adjustability to get the windshield right where you want it using this aftermarket mount.
Corbin matched the color pretty close. The bags themselves are very easy to remove in minutes. But the mounts would take me about a hour to remove.
As far as the MRA shield I think it looked pretty good, and it kept the wind off of my chest. The wind hit the top of my helmet without any buffeting. I still got a lot of wind around the sides. I thought that a larger screen might give even better protection. I have rode it once since installing the slipstream, had it up to 80 mph, and the shield was real stable with the wind hitting the top of my helmet. If I lean back I get a little more wind, and if I lean forward it becomes dead calm. So far not sure if it is much better for wind protection, but I think either way they both look good.
Just installed the slipstream b-wing 18 with the MAR mounting hardware. Looks great and no buffeting. I have a new Gustafsson with their 4 point hardware and couldn’t get the 70 mph + buffeting adjusted out . Thank you ! Huge improvement and really looks like it was made for the Valkyrie!
