Share your Madstad settings here

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.

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'm 6'1" with a Windstrom shield.

5'11" with a Givi screen. Madstad is about almost all the way up and almost tilted all the way back. Good luck..

I reinstalled the stock shield (the bike had the OEM tall shield on when I bought it) and set the brackets to the ones recommended in the installation instructions -- I'm pretty happy now.

Givi shield, MadStad mounted in the lowest position, shield all the way down and back 2/3 of the way. I'm 5' 11".

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

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.

Only 3 attempts

Stock screen , middle setting as per instructions.

Tilt angle about 2/3rds back.

Rider 5' 11'' tall.

Subtle and deceptive increase in cruising speed due to smooth ride.

150KPH feels like 70 KPH. ( honestly, officer)

DL1K , fettled.
