Title: C14 Wind protection
Post by: Lee_Yeckel_PA on December 13, 2008, 12:51:00 am
I test rode a new C14 and was thoroughly disappointed.  I was taking wind in the middle of my chest versus my 2003 with stock shield that is around my neck. Are there larger shields available that give better protection?  I just think the windscreen is too small for the bike.  And I had a sweet deal made!  Glad I rode it first.

Down south, in Texas, the short screen comes in very handy in the summer time.  It allows high speed running by keeping the wind blast off and at the same time keeps cooler air circulating in the cockpit.      In the winter time, I change wind screens.  I have a Cal-Sci +6 that is 6" taller than stock.  It provides a nice pocket of still air and does not buffet me at speed.  Also it does not 'push' me forward when I raise the screen.      There are other makes available as well.  I'd suggest getting the good deal.  The bike won't disappoint.

Zig08,  Thanks for the input!  The new dark red is sweet looking and hard to walk away from.     Have a great holiday season!

Yeah, fine...  spend big money for the latest in luxury and amenities, Kipass, tire pressure monitoring, etc., etc., and more $$$ for wind protection...    Thanks, I'll pass and stay with my frugal '05 C10 Connie with the OEM windshield and good wind protection!

Unless your C10 is bone stock how can you complain about spending $$ on a bike?  The Calsci or Vstream are great improvements over the stock screen.  Frugal is fine, but I got tired of 20+ year old technology.

the CalSi +6 works well for me and my wife.I believe the "hole down low   on the shield keeps the backpressure  down snd the "cockpit quite.The   bike works like a champ on the road and 2 up ....go for it

the stock screen on most of the ST bikes is more ...sporty... almost   everybody swaps the screen so don't let that deter you from the purchase. The C14 is an awesome machine in handling ,power and   looks. I have the Calsi +6 also and love the way it works .It has a   ..."hole" down low in the screen that keeps any back pressure issues   away.GREAT rain protection and very quite.There are many screens out   there so go to the other forum here and do  a search.  http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/Concoursprod.html  http://www.eaglescreens.com.au/kawasaki.htm  of course Murph has  http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/product_info.php?  cPath=130_135&products_id=274  Bob

Cal-Science vs Cee Bailey.  Can anyone tell me which the better product is to purchase? They each have their own design.  Thanks, Mike

It all depends on your size.  I am 6'2" 33" inseam and the VStream in the full up position air just clears my helmet.  Full down air hits my collar bone.  It takes a bit to get used to, it is a very flexible screen and moves around a lot.  I don't even notice it anymore.  It does have some backpressure, but after 100 miles you don't even notice that either.

See Baily is on mine. Got the large touring one. Down it lets the wind in. Up you can blow smoke rings behind it. Protects passager too. Quality product. Can't complain.     UP
