2010 Windshield

I hear that the C14 has a larger windshield for '10. Does anyone know if the '10 shield will fit the '09 C14 without modifications?

I heard that it was just the optional tall shield that the 08-09 could buy to replace the tiny shield.    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  2008 C14 & 2003 Mean Streak

I heard the same from another '09 C14 owner so I orderd the taller windshield on Saturday.    Thanks...

Yes, it will bolt right on. It's pretty much the same as the optional "tall" windshield Kawasaki sold for the 08/09 bike.

Exchanged my '03 ST1300 with a tall Calsci windshield last week for a new 2010 Concours with the new "larger" windshield. I love the bike but I think I will have to head back to West Sacramento to check Calsci's offerings. I am about 6-1 and must be comparatively tall from the waist up, as the shield provides almost no wind protection, compared both to my Calsci product and the original on the ST. In fact, in the highest position, it creates more buffeting and wind noise around the helmet than in the lower positions.

While it is the Kawasaki "tall" windshield, it is not very large.  If you are looking for a touring shield, there are many better aftermarket products.  I use the VStream.  A lot of folks don't like it because it is very flexible and it tends to move quite a bit.  I have just gotten used to it.  6'2" 33" inseam  It just flows over the top of my helmet.  My wife is only 4'10", so it makes no difference to her.

Hi, This is my first entry as a guest but I thought I would put in my penny worth about my new K10 GTR1400 or Concours as it is known elsewhere!  I also feel the screen is still a little low  although as my last bike was a BMW GS Adventure which has a windscreen the size of my kitchen window! I have ordered a CEE- Bailey high screen which comes highly recomended. it's a little expensive at about
