Are there replacements? Mine is stress fractured quite badly. It looks OK unless I am riding in the sun and then it is almost impossible to see through. Just hoping I can just replace the plastic and keep the brackets.

Thanks, I will look into them.
What they said. I have had mine for nearly 3 years now. They are / were great to deal with. All holes line right up with stock brackets. You can get them tinted, with vents, and customize the width and height. Just a tad thicker than the Hondaline.

You should be looking over the windshield not thru it. The top of the windshield should be about even with your nose.

Glad the forum was able to help you. 😎

Correct, but the wind screen is still clear for a reason. Very distracting when it is just a spiderweb in the headlights.

I use cleaners specifically for bike windshields and microfiber cloths. This windshield was used from Florida so I assume it is sunbaked and who knows what they cleaned it with before me. It is almost 20 years old.

Slipstreamer polish works really well too. It is not cheap, but even coated with bugs, spray it on let it sit for a minute, and everything wipes right off with a microfiber towel. Then follow with a dry microfiber, and like new!

I have used something called 'Bug Slide' with success. I second the micro-fibre cloths. Not knowing any better, that is part of what led to the Hondaline shield getting messed up w. paper towels or other rags.

Hello, I have the stock shield off my 2008 VTX1800T that I removed within 50 miles and replaced with a Batwing. Sold the bike due to back issues and still have the stock shield. I would call it "Like New" just dusty. Have all the bracketry but not the 10mm bolts. $100 plus shipping unless you are close to Southern NJ and we could meet up. Steve
