Fedex delivered my 12" Mako yesterday. I was able to get in on the 50% sale. The box looked like it had been smashed down with a tire. It had big black ring on one side of it. The shield must really be shatter proof. No padding in the box. Just protective film. The shield was not damaged. Looks like a high quality product. But could use some padding in the box.
got mine yesterday. Didn't get a chance to put it on yet. Busy long weekend here at the motel. Probably get it on Monday or Tuesday. Go for a ride before I rip off the film. Pretty sure it is a good size for me, being 5'10. But better safe than sorry.
Put my new 12" mako on today. Of course 2 well nuts broke. But made it work for now till I get new ones.
Any way went for a short ride. Pretty happy with the shield. Pushes the wind onto the very top of my helmet. Perfect in my opinion.
I will take of the plastic as soon as the new nuts come. Later today I hope.
The guy I bought my bike from had put 1/4 20 bolts and we'll nuts in and had stainless fender washers. I kept the beefed up bolts and nuts and used these washers that have an attached rubber washer. Nice and snug
Went with the 8.5” MS Black Smoke. I’m 6’1” and stock shield had wind hitting me right at chin level. Now wind is Just slightly above my head. No problem seeing over shield, very happy and would recommend. Stock shield is darker in tint FYI and yes can hear stereo better now.
Did this on HD Forums and figured I would bring it on over here. Mods feel free to sticky.

Hello tee nuts! Went on a trip this weekend and could not keep my windshield in place. Wound up taping the corners on the way home and it still came out. Got a handful of brad hole tee nuts from the hardware store, put some 2 sided tape on them, and stuck them on the inside of the fairing.
Im having trouble finding pictures of the old style road glide. Im looking at the 8.5 Memphis and the 12" klock werks, since these seem to be about the same height vertically. Does anyone have pictures of one or both of these? Picture of my 01, im 5 "11 and getting a lot of wind with this short...
Been some questions asked lately and I'm bored because it's raining again, so I did some measuring for those thinking about the Madstad. I won't get into the looks discussion, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. My shield is the 13" tinted. Measures 13.5 inches in the center. Slid all the way...
