V-stream sizing
« on: October 11, 2015, 11:02:16 am »
V-Stream  comes in 3 sizes. Regular , sport touring, and sport.

Is the sport touring version shorter than stock?

I have the sport touring version and it is pretty close to stock size. I am thinking about trying the sport version because the sport touring version blocks to much air on a hot, humid, Ohio afternoon. Good shield with good clarity and it did help my co-rider with the buffeting that the stock shield caused. V-Stream was a bit better when stuck behind a truck too.

That's the exact info I'm looking for. I'm torn between the sport and the sport touring models. The sport screen looks to be  4 inches lower than stock, but given our shields have 6 inches of vertical travel, it's hard to believe that it would be too short. I only see a tinted Version available though at national cycle, and I was looking for clear

I have the shorter sport one and like it a lot.  In the lower position you get clean air with a nice amount of pressure and little to no buffeting.  I never got "clean" air with the stock windscreen which is why I went with the shorter one.

In a recent thunder storm here in Southern CA :020: I tested it out at the full extension.  It was enough to keep me dry in the face which is all I really can ask for.

The tint isn't that dark but it is noticeable at night.  If you are the type to ride with the windscreen up at night then I could see wanting a clear one. 

For me I always like to "look over" my windscreen as much as possible so shorter works better.

I have the Sport version and even though I like it a lot, for my height, I'm going instead with a stock screen cut down maybe 2".

I  think the Sport would be great for a taller rider that wants more air into the cockpit.
