Choosing a Size
Looking Over the Windshield
The ideal height is where the top edge of the windshield is level with the tip of your nose. This gives you about 2” to see over the top of the windshield when you are looking straight ahead. With this height, the wind will clear the top of your head for a comfortable and quiet ride. The taller you go the better it feels, especially for the passenger, as long as the top edge doesn’t creep up into your line of sight.
Looking Through the Windshield
The ideal height is where the top edge of the windshield is about 2″ above your line of sight. This gives the most comfort and protection for both the rider and the passenger, but when it rains and the windshield gets wet and dirty it gets harder to see through the windshield.
– If you have a tall windshield on your bike, you can place a piece of Blue Painters Masking Tape on your windshield with the top edge of the tape at different heights and take a short ride to get settled into your normal riding position.
– If you have a short windshield on your bike, you can tape different size pieces of cardboard on your windshield with Blue Painters Masking Tape and take a slow ride to get settled into your normal riding position.
Test Ride our Windshield
Your windshield will come with a protective plastic film applied to both sides of the windshield. Make sure to leave the plastic on the windshield, mount the windshield and take a short test ride, as long as you have good visibility.
If you are not completely satisfied with the height or performance of the windshield, you may return the windshield for a different size or for full credit (less any shipping charges) as long as the windshield is like new and the protective plastic film has not been removed.
Take your time . . . make sure it is right. No worries if you order in the winter months and it takes until Spring to try it out.
You did great, John, many thanx! Shield fits perfectly, received last Friday, mounted and tested! It is way better than stock. After 3000 miles across France, south-west to north-east and back, your windshield is perfect for me (5’8″), smooth air behind, handling unchanged, perfect vision above. Either cruising at 100mph on the motorway, modular helmet (Shark Evo One) open, or on tight winding roads across mountains.
Review By: Pierre – France
The windshields arrived and I mounted them on our bikes (you will recall that my wife and I have matching Victory Cross Roads). As compared to the OEM windshields, your windshields are both better looking and shorter (with much improved sight lines, particularly for my wife). Most importantly, your windshields provide way better wind protection than the OEM windshields – I cannot believe how quiet, and buffeting-free, the ride now is. Simply put, they are amazing! You produce a remarkable product, and I would be happy to confirm this to anyone who is thinking about buying one.
Review By: Tom – Ontario, Canada (18″ Light Grey)
After much research I was impressed with the reviews on Freedom Shields so I decided to order a shield for my wife’s HD Switchback. I really wanted a new lower shield for my Victory Cross Roads also but no luck. I wrote John an email hoping he had an HD shield that could be adapted to my XR. He responded with “send me your Victory shield and I’ll design a new shield”. Since I live an hour away I offered to bring the whole bike so he could see the set up and take measurements…. He agreed to meet on a weekend. The result of this experience is first a happy wife with an amazing quality shield on her Switchback that she can see over and keeps the wind off her head. And I have the first Freedom Shield for Victory. The quality is top shelf, I can easily see over it and wind management is great. And John was very fair on price and knows how to communicate with his customers. A Great product and awesome customer service. John and his team at Freedom Shields are the BEST.
