LRS Mako

Hey guys, I just purchased the LRS Mako 14" medium tint windshield for my 08. I'm 6'5" tall and really hope this one will be a lot better than the wind splitter 12" I currently have on there. Anyone around my height have one these they can comment on?

Send it back and get a madstad. I have a 14 windvest and the buffing sucks. I use it around town. I put my madstad on to a trip this week and I'm back in heaven.

Oh man, I hope I don't have to send it back. I have heard good things about the madstad though. Maybe later on I will get one of those also.

Don't drink the kool-aid!!!

Life is too short to put up with stupidity. Strive every day to educate someone, including yourself!

I have a 14" Mako. NO buffeting. I'm 6' and I run lowers. I think lowers make a major difference

I'm only 6.1 but I've been running a 13 inch dark mako for 2 years and have no desire to ever change except to my 12 inch dark one in the summer best shield on the market but that only my opinion. And their always running sales

LRS is a great company. You will be happy with the Mako... very well made shields.

And dont listen to the Madstad fanboys.... fucking ugliest thing Ive ever seen on a road glide. Might as well buy a goldwing.

I concur. Looks to me like a Klingon forehead, or maybe some 80's valley girl with her front bangs teased up 6".

The madstad is the ugliest thing made for the ugliest harley built but it works. You won't know how well it works unless you try it. Madstad gives you 60 days to try it out and if you don't like it send it back and get your money back. You can't go wrong with that.
