Recieved and installed my new Secdem windshield today. Looks really nice, like it was actually meant for the Wee.

Will have to wait abit before I can road test it, as there is still several ft of snow around.

cheers

Finally got to try out the new Secdem shield!

I initially installed it at the lowest setting and went for a good scoot down the hiway and in and around town. Noticed an immediate and huge improvement in wind noise with absolutaly no buffetting. I found if I hunched down about an inch, it got even quieter.
I moved the screen to the 2nd setting, I can still easily see over it and the wind noise is basically no longer an issue. I can even ride with my helmet visor down now (before it was like a tornado inside my helmet with it down) and it is a real treat.

I then took the bike for a spin trying out my pals brand spankin new Caberg helmet. This is a helmet that has a built in sunvisor on the inside of the helmet, and it slides up into the helmet when not in use. I was fully prepared to buy one, right up until I tried it on my Wee. The wind noise from this helmet was terrible! With the visor down, it was like I never installed a new windshield.

So, I will stay with my old lid (only 2yrs old) and wear sunglasses.

I am very impressed with the Secdem and the price was right at 150.00 Cdn.

Cheers

Sounds like a good find. You need to mention your height and inseam so we can judge if it might be good for the rest of us.

That is the way to give info. You have 4" on your upper body that I have on my inseam. I might be looking through the shield. I often say I am blessed as I like the stock shield and it works for me. Do you still have the stock shield and have you considered selling it if it's in good shape??

Im sure in the lowest pos/n you would still easily look over it Wolf. I have my old shield, mint shape, but will hang on to it for now.
I plan to have about 80,000km on the Wee at the end of this summer, so will put the shield back on it when I trade in for an 07.

cheers

I think you have the only other 2005 model sold with the same mileage as I accumulate 8) I figure I'll be at 60,000 by the time the season is done. If I can find a damm job and get time off for trips I could hit 40,000km to go with the 30,000km I ran last summer 8)

I am dealing with the great windshield debate, I have just 200km on my new 04 DL1000 and love the bike but hate the buffetting above 100km/h. I seem to be spending a lot of time researching fixes but I just can't seem to decide on which one to choose (ie. Laminar Lip, Givi, Windstrom, and on and on) I really don't want to spend tons of $$$$ on endless windshield selections. I had a 650 out for a test ride last year and loved the bike, but we never got up to highway speeds, so the buffetting issue never showed up

I do believe that the Secdem is by far the cheapest alternative windshield. It looks great, provides considerable more coverage than the stock shield.
The laminar lip, in my opinion is a real goofy lookin thing, and you still have a very small (stock) windshield.
I will take some pics of my Wee and send to anyone that wants them.
It is a balmy zero out right now, and my pal will be over shortly to go for a ride.

Cheers!

windshield

02 vstrom here; 5'10" inseam 30" (i think); have read all about windscreens since buying the bike last fall but not sure what to do either; limited budget so this sounds interesting and I'm in (Montreal) Quebec. I'll call them tomorrow but do you think I can look over it if I want to? Is it adjustable or does it come in different heights? Took my bike out today so now I'm looking for stuff too...

the 02 and 03 Strom uses a completely different screen than 04 and up. Unsure how effective the replacement is for the older ones.

cheers
