I am doing a RG conversion on my RK, and would like to get a good windshield.
I have seen a few advertised, MAKO, Windvest, LRS, etc. Just not sure which is the best way to go, or which one would be a good starting point; I am 5'8" tall.
Would greatly appreciate any input on this.
There are a couple of things that should be considered here: First off, will you be riding solo most of the time, or 2-up? What works well for the driver doesn't necessarily work for the passenger.
Also, are you going to be using the 2010-up fairing mounts or the 2009-down mounts? I ask this because starting in 2010, the RG fairing was adjusted UP and tilted forward a bit - this may affect the height of the shield you will want.
And finally, how important are aesthetics?
Arguably the best shield for the RG is the MadStad system, but many folks cannot get over the looks.
I have personally used a 15" Cee Baileys, 13" Windvest, and 13" MadStad. for me (5'-11" on a 2004 RG) the best is the MadStad, hands down. The second best would be the Windvest followed by the Cee Baileys. All of them are however MUCH better than the stock windshield.
