4/13/04 Great news on new style Windshield for the V-Strom
Today I installed my new " Fairingscreens.com " replacement windshield and I could not be happier with the results! The noise and buffeting is gone. I can ride with my face shield open, no ear plugs and ride as fast as
I care too without bugs splattering me. I feel some wind around my shoulders and chest area but this is as close to perfection as I can imagine with any shield mounted on a V-strom with the sharp angle of the windshield.
It measures 27.25 in tall and 13.5 inches at the bottom tapering to 10.5 inches at top with 3 distinct aerodynamic patterns and a triangular hole just above the instrument dash with a 1.5 inch reverse flip at the top. I easily look over it. I am 5'11 tall.
Basically, Marcel took the best of 3 different ideas and made one great windshield! I have ridden over 2000 happy miles in the last month on this great bike and the stock shield was my only complaint. It is plain horrible.
I have read about many unhappy owners trying many different windscreens unsuccessfully from half a dozen manufacturers, so I was wary about what I could expect from upgrading. For the Record, This is my third and best shield from Marcel. He replaced at no cost to me the shield the Dealership originally installed incorrectly . I was not happy with the shorter replacement so I waited with a temprary fix until the new style was unveiled. Now I am a happy owner and heartily recommend to anyone who needs a replacement, email or call Fairingscreens.com. You will be very happy you did.
Marcel always did what he said he would, was very acommodating and enthusiastic in making sure I was satisfied.
What more could any reasonable person expect. I would love to post pictures of the shield If I can figure out how to do it - I will.
