California Scientific Windshield

I've just seen the website for California Scientific.

http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/VStrom1.html

They have a windshield that is:

Laser cut for precision aerodynamics and fit
Shape designed to compliment the lines of the VStrom
7" wider than stock :shock:
Available in three heights: 4.5", 6.5", and 8.5" taller than stock
Tall recommended for riders 5'10" (178 cm) and taller
Short recommended for riders living in warm climates
NACA duct styled vent for minimum turbulence and backpressure
8,000 miles of testing and development
Includes storage cover, micro-fiber cleaning towel, and mini-spray bottle of windshield cleaner.
Compatible with Suzuki Hand Guards.
Made from 4.5mm thick (3/16") DOT certified impact resistent plastic.
Available for all DL650s, and '04 and '05 DL1000s.

Does anyone have one of these? I'm considering buying one, but I'd like some opinions from current owners.

Thanks.

Looks nice except that it looks kind of unfinished in the front. :?

At the bottom of the description, check out the more pictures here link. It looks like they just set the windshield on the mounts. The black plastic strips that come with your stock windshield would still go over the front of the mounts. For some reason they are absent from this photo. I think the Givi windshield would probably look better. I wonder if this one has any functional advantage. The Givi is about $105, this one is $185.

CalSci shield...

I have the "high" CalSci shield on my Wee and really like it, though if I'd do it over, I'd get the medium height shield (easier to see over) and raise it for trips. I've done the bracket mod to lean it back some and used the included washers to rake it back further. The guy selling them is really helpful, too!

CalSci Windshield

I tried one & it didn't do much for me - I sent it back. Be aware there is a restocking fee if you do the same...
