Calsci windshield ... Choosing size
« on: June 13, 2016, 07:05:19 pm »
Trying to choose the correct size for a new Calsci windshield. The issue I have is that Calsci suggests I would be always looking through the windshield if I chose a XLrg screen. But that doesn't make sense given the following:
... The triumph screen is 10.5" from top hole to top of screen
... The calsci Xlrg screen is 11" from top hole to top of screen
... I raise the screen 2" now without having to look through. I like it when the angle goes more vertical.
... I am 5'11" with 32 inseam.

It seems to me the Lrg Calsci screen is the same size as the Trophy stock screen

Can the Calsci screen owners let me know if I am missing something?

Thanks, Tony

I have the large CalSci screen.  I am 6'3" with a 36" inseam and large screen works fine for me.  I don't think it is really much taller (maybe 1.5" or so) but it is a lot wider, especially at the top.  Also, it does not have the "u-shape" cut-out at the top like the stock windshield does.  Overall I have been pleased with how the CalSci has performed.

I own two CalSci windshields for our Trophys, XL and a clear shorty.  I am 6'1".  I definitely can look over both sizes.  The XL is very warm, but offers very good coverage.  I use the clear shorty most of the time, it still offers good coverage and is a lot cooler in warm weather.

Triucati,

At 6'1" how much travel do you get with the XL screen before you aren't looking over it?

Being in Canada, a shield that is warm is good!

Sorry, it has been a while since I used the XL  But I think I could raise it more than a lil bit before I had to look through it.  Also, I have the tall usa seat in the highest position.

I have an XL wide Cal Sci and I have to raise it 3" before I'm looking through it and I'm only 5'-7" and using the low seat.  All the way down I get air on me just below my neck, but of course it's a little noisy in the Nolan with it that low.  A Schuberth would make a huge difference, but for the $$$$?
