    Question After market windscreen choice

    I want to replace my windscreen and like to know what ones are you using. So far the choices I have found are, cee-bailey, parabellum and salt lake city bmw. How well do these perform as far as easing the buffeting from the stock screen.

    Thanks

    Frank Need so info

    What bike are you putting the screen on? How fast do you ride? How is the buffeting effecting you? How much air flow do you want behind the screen? Which helmet do you use? JON

    Thumbs up

    I'll put in a plug for Parabellum, at least from the customer service perspective. I had a minor 'incident' last fall near their headquarters in north Georgia, and busted my Parabellum. Since the bike was temporarily inoperable, I called them up, and Charly P., the owner, delivered an exact replacement windshield and had it installed in less than 45 min., and didn't charge me a nickel for labor. Plus he sent me some optional hardware after I got home -- again, no charge. Can't beat that...

    'Fraid this doesn't answer your question on effectiveness on the F650, but it's a factor, IMHO...

    1999 f-650 I guess it's the funduro, I ride alittle over the speed limit 5-10 over. The stock screen doesn't offer any protection ( although I ride a k1200lt ) I don't expect the coverage like my LT so I would like some air flow but don't want to fight the blast. I also wear a nolan n-100.

    When I get the chance I want to do some long distance traveling like 400-500+ mile day untill I get to my destination and then the back country.
    Hope that's enough info.
