So with the 6.5 do you get good wind protection. I am 5-6 with the CVO seat as well and I don't like too much wind in my face. Does it say what says it does and deflect the wind over your head?

If you are 5'6 and on a CVO seat, you may need to "See through" the shield and the Black is NOT see through.....rather, see over - Just an FYI

Thank you for the response SteadyEddie. So would you say the 8.5 spoiler windshield with the ghost tint the way to go so I can see through the clear part? Here is a picture of the 10 inich and I am seeing the edge of the winshield. I am constantly looking up or down

I hated my klock windshield but have the Klip hanger handlebars. They are 14" but what I really liked is the adjustable wrist angle.

I just installed the 9.5” MS windshield on my 2018 CVO RG. I’m 6’1” and I look over the windshield, which is great since everything is distorted if you look through it. It does a great job of deflecting the wind, but I still feel enough to know I’m on a bike. And, I can hear the stereo perfectly now.

I didn't know they made a 9.5. Did you mean 6.5 or 8.5. I am looking for a the size that will I can look over and still not be over powering with the wind I have very sensitive ears and I dont want a high windshield. So I am at a crossroads between a 6.5 and an 8.5 MS for my 2013 RD

Post Compare to Stock Size

I put a post in the other Memphis Shades Windshield thread. But thought I might post here too since someone somebody investigating these shields might miss the other thread.

When I was searching which size MS shield to get I found the thread here and saw several posts stating that the 6.5 was very close to the stock shield height. What I didn't realize was that everyone stating that had a standard RG or a RGS. MY bike is a RGU which has a larger shield. Since I feel like I tower over the stock shield and get hammered by the wind on the highway, I went with the 8.5 figuring the extra 2" over stock plus the curve would do the trick. Well the 8.5 is actually close to the stock shield size for the RGU Good news is the Curve of the spoiler shield still improves the air flow so now I can ride the highway and my sunglasses stay on my face and my eyes are not watering but it is not perfect for me. If I had it to do over I would order the 10" spoiler shield. to get the extra 2" of height. I do plan on modifying my seat to move me back and possibly down a tad and I am hoping that this will also help improve the airflow around me too. Even after I get my seat modified there will be no concern of me looking thru the 8.5 or even the 10".

For comparision I am 6'1" w/ 31" inseam on stock seat. Bike is 2017 RGU. shield is a 8.5 Smoke Spoiler Windshield (not ghost)

at the writing of this I still need to update my pic to show the bike since installing the new windshield.
