I just put on a Madstad bracket and have been trying to fine tune it. I'm interested to know how others have their bracket set. How tall are you and what shield are you using? Thanks in advance for the info.
I think i have heard everything but this setting but its the only one that works well for me. I am 6'3 and with both the stock screen and the givi shield set up tall, I have to lay the screen all the way back. It make the bike look a bit like a scooter from the front but it does the trick. J.R.
In heat...full down and full tilt.
fer protection I set it full up and forward and tilt back to the point twhere I can see over the screen. I have the brackets set on the highest position. I am 5-7 w/ 28in inseam.
Highest setting, about halfway back tilt seems to work for me. The forward positions made way too much buffeting and back pressure. Of course, I changed the settings at a complete stop, just like the rest of you.
i am 6'2" and i have the stock sheild on an '07 vee. I have the bracket mounted on the highest mounting points, set all the way up and about 2/3rds the way back. good to go up to about 90mph, then its bad, and that just serves to remind me to slow down. by the way, first mod and well worth the money. The man who makes them hand delivered it to me and told me i'd be happy. He was right.
When i first mounted it, I took off and rode a few miles, getting the bike up to speed and then pulling over, adjusting and repeating. took me about 5 or 6 tries to find the right setting. But, like i said, well worth the time/money.
On my 06 650 with the stock seat and shield I originally had it in the middle height all the way back and was quite happy. Since I got my Corbin seat I have actually lowered the Madstad all the way down and left it angled all the way back. I think my height at 6'2" combined with the added height of the Corbin has made me get into the turbulent area and lowering the windshield seems to have taken me above it into smoother air. I have a GIVI windshield on order for more protection but right now it is quite acceptable to me.
I have searched the internet and this site and cant find an answer to my question that works for me. My07 DL1000 will stall and run very crappy after rides of over 25 miles or so, usually i just use it for commuting to work (7 miles) so its a non issue on most days.It has a PC III on...
Anybody like the old caddys with the tail fins?? Well here is my new set of signal lights, havnt decided whether to put them on the front or rear. They are from an old transport rig, they are 16" long and IMHO very cool!
What do you all think?
I have recently installed some new suspension upgrades. I was not happy with the OEM front diving too much under heavy braking, even with full preload dialed in. I was also unimpressed with the OEM rear shock being too soft, even with full preload dialed. This was especially true when riding...
I'm going to have to buy or fabricate some sort of tool tube/tool box to fit with the OEM miniscule side cases. I'm just beginning my search so I thought I would post a thread of inquiry to see if anybody here has come up with any good ideas. There are a plethora of great ideas for the larger...
Ok so, I don't normally do this on any of the forums I'm a part of, but I had such a positive experience with the Heed products I purchased for my wee I just had to share it. If any of you are looking for crash bars, skid plate or a center stand I definitely recommend at least giving these guys...
