So over the past week I've tried two different Klock Werks screens on my bike. For reference, I'm 6'1, 33-34" inseam, and I'm using a Predator 3 extended reach seat which puts me back 1.5" over stock.



First I ordered the 14" Sport Flare screen on Amazon prime, got it 2 days later and installed it. I took it for a short spin, cruising at speeds of up to 80mph, and immediately noticed that almost no wind was hitting my face. I could hear the radio perfectly, and I could easily see the road while riding (first time sitting on the bike I thought it was too tall, as I was looking at items in my garage which were less than 25 ft in front of me).


Only drawback? I thought it ruined the lines of the bike from some angles... Other than that, literally perfect...

Here's the 14" screen:











But, because I'm kind of an idiot, I wanted something that looked better and fit the lines of the bike a bit better. I spoke with the seller and exchanged that screen for a 9" version of their sport flare.

Same perfect fitment, and it feels like it's half as tall.

My review of this screen:

It's 20x better than stock. It's obviously not as good as the 14" screen in terms of wind protection, but the wind that's hitting me definitely feels "cleaner" and I have no wind buffeting/turbulent air pulling my helmet or face around (when not wearing a helmet) like I did with the stock screen. I can hear my radio quite easily, although obviously not as well as the 14" again.

I'm keeping the 9" screen because I think it looks a lot better, and I think the screen was worth every penny ($240 or so).

Side by side, my POV on bike.

14" vs 9"

I like the looks of the 9 also. I have the 14” and it hits my line site a little lower than i like after i switched seats. I think if i went 9” i would be all up in the wind and take some of the radio away that i like. But, if i have money to blow i might try it for short local rides. Thanks for the review

I looked into the Klockwerks and Memphis Shades. In the end I couldn't justify the extra $$ for Klockwerks so I went with Memphis Shades Spoiler 8.5" (USA made and $150). After about 4,500 miles it's been great for 6'4" rider. Looks similar to pic above for 14.5 Klockwerks but I think this one has a more aerodynamic look. All personal preference.

Yep the 9 looks better. I ended up with the 12" pro tour, it was going to be too long of a wait for the 14 and I was worried the 9 wouldn't provide enough protection. I am very happy with this shield. I had the HD ultra shield on my other RGS and this one provides the same wind protection but looks way better.
I am with jstucker, if I have some extra cash it may be nice to have the 9" as well. But there are some other things I would like to do to the bike first.
Thought I had a picture of the "new" windshield but i guess I have't taken any pictures of the bike in the last month and a half.

I run the 9 on mine and love it. I'm right at 6 ft.

I run the 9” too. I compensate for the additional wind noise by using 8” fairing speakers and 4400Watts of power from my amps - LOL

Being 5’ 10” helps in this regard too. One of the few benefits of being short.

Im 5'10" and had to strench to see over the 10" LRS. The 9" Klockwerks is perfect for me and pushes the wind just over my helmet. I do run a low seat.

I have the 9 inch on my 2017 RGS and the 12 inch Pro Touring on my 2020 CVO. I like the 9 inch for solo riding and the 12 works better for the wife.
