Depends, if you're under say 5'8"ish riding a lowered bike and/or have a high tolerance for wind noise and buffeting, you may be just fine, some people like that shield just fine.

If you're a bit taller, ride take long rides, want to save your hearing and be able to see clearly, make your passenger's ride a bit more pleasant sell it and get something that works better.

You can spend hours reading up on the possibilities and most will point you at the Madstad, although plenty will tell you others work fine. It all comes down to personal preference and tolerance.

I picked it up from my local HD store a few months ago...
I like the look can you give me feedback?

1) Does it provide good coverage for long rides?
2) Any buffering at higher speeds 70mph< ?
3) How tall are you and your inseam?
4) What seat do you ride with?
5) No helmet, 1/2, 3/4 or Fullface?
6) Do you have lowers or any other wind deflecting instruments on your bike.

THANKS!!

That !5" in dark smoke looks good. I like the look of the windsplitters, but they just don't work for me.

1) Coverage for long rides is adequate
2) No beffering
3) 5'9"
4) Corbin solo or Mustange regal for two up
5) 1/2 helmet, sometime no helmet (Texas no helmet law)
6) No other wind delefcting devices

hope this helps!

Too dark for me. Gotta look thru them sometimes.

my 15 inch was only available in smoke, but to me, it looks clear. i use it in the winter for a little additional face protection for the cold wind. as soon as it warms up, i switch back to the 12.

but then again, i'm only 5'4'' :D

I have the 12" too, but since the wifee rides along more w/me in summer I put on the 15" to give her a little more protection.

I'm running the 12" wind splitter and like it a lot. I'm 5'9" on the stock seat and my line of site is about 2 to 3" over the top of the windshield. I think the 15" would impede my line of site. I wear a 1/2 helmet and I have no complaints about buffering or noise. I've even taken the skirts out of my riding glasses. My wife has no complaints either.
