I'm a C10 owner and I'm sure the C14 boys will chime in soon enough. There were problems finding windscreens for the C14 initially since it's a relatively new bike but I'm sure there are a lot these days. I know Cee Bailey makes a windscreen for the C14. I have a Cee Bailey on my C10 that came from the PO and it does a good job. Thicker than the others, vented and has a steeper curve than the Rifle for example. Keep an eye on the topic though and some of the C14 guys will throw out additional recommendations in short order no doubt. I don't know if Rifle makes one for the C14 yet, but if they don't already I'd bet they will soon.

 I didn't like the stock windshield on my C-14 either.After looking at the available aftermarket screens I went with a Cee Bailey. The one I got is 5" taller and 2" wider on each side. When I raise it up a little it stops the buffeting and wind noise like a light switch. And, it looks good too. I have the light grey tint and like it. The dark grey might look even better yet.Hope this helps.

I put the cee bailey euro style on my c14 and it made a huge difference.  I got it from Murphs kits and really like the improvement for the passenger and myself.

  Can't help you much on the passenger comfort. I'm usually solo. My wife's hip bothers her. I'm sure it will be an improvement over stock though. Keep us posted on how it works out for you. I just ordered a set of Baker Hand Wings to keep my hands warm and dry since I don't have heated grips. Also have an Area P exhaust coming for it. Bye Bye bazooka! Now if it would just quit snowing!! Later.

I've tried both Calsci +4, the Vstream, and the Calsci +6.  All are leaps and bounds above the stock screen.  The +4 was just barely not tall enough, but down was about the sdame as the stocker up.  The Vstream is same height as +4, but pushed me forward just a bit.  Wife still complained about wind.  The +6 is great for me.  All the way up is dead quiet, but I still look over the top (6'2").  Mama hasn't benn on behind the +6 yet, but I'm keeping it.  HTH.

Hey Guys,     Bought the Cee Bailys wind screen, in the tall euro cut size.  What a huge differance. Fit and finish is excellant, and was installed in 15 min. Wife is much happier now. Also purchased a set of handle bar risers from Murfes Kits. Also great quailty and finish. Fits well and makes a big differance on long rides. On another subject......   How do I get the map of the U.S. on my profile.

Hey gang, enlighten me please as I am frikkin ignorannt when it comes to the C14.  What's the chief complaint with the C14 stock windscreen?  It appears the pax suffers a bit.  Is there too much buffeting?  Too much wind?      What about hot weather?      Just looking for data.  Any bit can help.  Thanks.

What I can say about it from my test ride in Greenville at the IMS, the stock windshield at full extension still allows too much wind buffetting for me.  I am 6'2 and on my '06, I ride with the Rifle system and tall shield.  Robert Elliott  Cornelia, GA  COG # 7598  CDA#0293

Hey Rich, the stock screen is appreciated by alot of folks, it's all a matter of taste, riding style, where you ride,and size of the rider IMHO!  For myself at 6ft tall, living up North, and coming from a naked bike background, I went with the Kawi tall screen, it works for me.    Cheers,   Claude / BC, Canada  COG #8173  2008 C14 aka Ribbit II

I see also that Givi has a shield for the c14. I saw it at Premier Cycle for $113, 3.3" taller than stock.    http://www.premiercycleaccessories.com/GIVI_C14_Replacement_Windshield_p/16054.htm
