Help me buy a new windshield 2016 rgs !

Ok guys, Im ready for my next mod to my 2016 SHark, I have been looking to upgrade my windsheild for a little while now and I think my next purchase will be a new windsheild. I am 5'9" tall, I will be trying to wear a full face helmet as often as possible but will take a helmetless ride once in a while. I am thinking the helmet should add 2-3"'s of height to the mix. I am upgrading my stereo right now and I would like to get something that offers better than stock volume funneling. I have been looking at the 14" Sport from KlockWorks however Im open to all suggestions. Whats going to offer the best minimal buffeting and best sound quality. I love the looks of the 14" sport Klockworks but will sacrifice looks for performance.

THANKS !!!

Greetings!!

First off... Are you good with your seat and position? If not, I recommend you tackle that as your next mod, then look at a shield.

If your seating is good, Freedom Shields, quality is unmatched, IMO...call'em up and talk about what size you need, also have a RG forum pricing...

Of course theres always MADSTAD..lol..adjust height as you need...look are subjective..lol

Ride safe...

If you want a functional and adjustable shield, then go with the Madstad.

We are the same height. I went with an 11" LRS Stingray. Works great for me. Watch their site for some pretty hot prices from time to time.

I also recommend the fltr wind deflectors from the local dealer. Only about $30. Snap in on the crash bar in front of the tank under the fairing. Helps quite a bit with buffeting at highway speeds. Alot of people have had good luck with the GADS system found on this site. ( believe they can be found in the sponsors section) Though i haven't tried them personally.

I run a Memphis Shade and could not be happier - It is different than everything else and I love the look - I am 5'11 but run a CVO seat that sits me back and down a tad - I can hear my tunes fine at 80mph with my skid lid on and the wind hits me right at the top of the noggin - I don't like a full pocket as IMHO, it is a Motorcycle after all and I like SOME wind.

Pic of mine on my shitbox in my "Garage" on this site and here is the Mfg site - I run the 6.5 in Black Opaque

Stop right there and look no further!
The 14" Sport Flare from Klock Werks is a high quality product. Not only does it look good but it also improves handling.
Although I ride an older shark (pre-Rushmore model) I say it made a huge difference. I've tried a lot of different windshields prior to getting the Flare.
While most brands are made of acrylic the KWs are polycarbonate making them more impact resistant.
I say - get Klocked!

I had the 12" Sport flare on my 11. And I have the 14" Sport flare on my 16. Love it. I'm 5'10" and wear a helmet 99% of the time. A 3/4 and a modular. Just bought the Shark Evoline 3. I get a little turbulence with my top vent closed.

Windvest

24000 klms of all weather riding. Commuting or touring. Solo or 2 up. 10 inch Windvest. No complaints.
I did try the MOCO Windsplitter of a few heights without satisfaction. Similar height.
