    Do any of these windscreen manufacturers ask for your body's dimensions? I bet not.
    Since some riders have longer inseams than others, some have shorter or longer arms, etc... get an adjustable windscreen.

    Or, if you have a first gen NC700 and think you could use a few inches more, try the Laminar Lip or one of the eBay "Adjustable Clip On Windshield Extension Spoilers"

    Madstad does give directions to choose based on rider height and of course the Madstad system is adjustable for height and rake, even adjustable while riding.

    I loved the Madstad because of it's sizing guide, adjustability, and with a 22" I can ride with a gel-pad on my seat and not have ANY buffering at all.
    I initially purchased a 20" but had buffering so I exchanged it for the 22".

    BTW: I am 6-0" with a 32 inseam.

    BTW: I have a 22" for sale in the FS section, I will make you a deal on it!!!

    DIY? I make my own out of a single piece of LEXAN.

    They are not stylish, but they do EXACTLY what I want them to do.


    • tall: wind stream hits the top of the helmet, just
    • wide: a little wider than usual to keep the air off my shoulders. Actually a little too wide at the moment, narrower next version.
    • hinged: so that the handlebars have full range of motion.
    • panels: removable panels to keep all the air off me when it's really cold.
    • serviceable: put together primarily with zip ties (on purpose) so that I can repair it on the road.
    • strong: there are videos of lexan and Plexiglas taking a shotgun blast on youtube. Lexan handles that well compared to Plexi.


    DO NOT attempt your own windshield without "Dale's NUT PLATES". He is a member and makes the plates that bolt the windscreen to your NC securely. I used aluminium flat bar to bridge the lexan with the nut plates. All of it put together with simple household tools. Bent it down the center with a heat gun.

    (sprayed it with windex so that you could see it better. It's not frosted.)
    (the arc across the top could be better. I'm still learning how to do that.)

    This sort of home-made approach is NOT for everyone.

    Hey Strat, a small belt sander helps a lot to rough in the curves.
    Then, gradually reducing sand paper to finish and get whatever surface texture you want on the periphery.
    I have done this with windscreens and you can't tell the difference between my cuts and the OEM surfaces.

    If I had a dollar for every word written on this forum about windscreens, I’d have a Goldwing.

    Madstad has lightened the mounting hardware from prior models but still adds quite a bit of weight to the install.
    The adjustable hardware sets the shield farther forward than a fixed mount. All this makes it a 'busy' looking setup and less effective than a closer to rider package.

    The Parabellum comes in 24" vs Madstad 22" so can be trimmed down to get the perfect height. $120 cheaper $160 vs $280.
    I have no stake in the latter only experience w/both. I like the clean look of a tall clear shield. I have this same setup on my Motus.

My helmet is a Shoie RF-1200 with vents at the top. There is a lot of wind noise in my helmet. I duct taped the vents and wear foam ear plugs. Has anyone tried the Gustuffson Plastics shield Honda NC 700 X 2012 - 2016 18" Tall 23 Wide 4 Holes Gustafsson Plastics ?
    I had one on a bmw and I was pleased with it, just wished I'd bought a taller one.
