Added Silpstream Windshield Today

I had the MRA wind screen mounted but decided to try the Slipstream B-Wing 18" shield. I tried mounting it with the stock hardware, but as others pointed out you would have to trim your instrument housing. So then I mounted it with the MRA hardware, and so far it seems to work fairly well. Much cheaper alternative to the Honda hardware. The MRA mount is only 48 dollars. I think it looks pretty good.

Beautiful bike Jim, the shield looks great I like the angle it's at. Seems to look like it belongs on the bike and follows the lines of the bike much better than some other brands which appear more as if a barn door was strapped on the slick looking Valkyrie. Love it.
How difficult is it to remove those bags? Can the mounting hardware stay in place once removed? Can you buy them color matched?
Very sharp bike.

It does look nice. I'd be curious to see pics of the MRA windshield you had before this and how you feel they compare to each other in terms of quality and performance.

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.

Hands down, best looking functional windshield yet on the Valkyrie. If it takes the wind off my chest that's really all I'm looking for
(or I'd ride a Wing)
Do you look "over" the shield with the 18" slipstream?
Thanks

Jim, Can you confirm if these are the right parts for your setup? I have a windshield but it shakes too much at higher speeds. Thanks!

Also, do you know if the windshield can be ordered cheaper without the hardware?
