The cold weather will soon be upon us. Consequently, those of us without wind protection will freeze. I was wondering if anyone had experience with those cheezy generic fairings from National Cycles. I'm looking for some cheap wind protection that can installed and removed quickly.

I've installed one on my friend's MZ Scorpion a few years ago.

It was similar to this one:



They are pretty sturdy and mount to handlebars in the same manner master cylinders do. Each arm has a pivot joint allowing you to position the windscreen to your liking.

The only problem was vibration at certain RPM, so we put a rubber strip on headlight housing and positioned the windshield such that it was pushed against the headlight, cushioned by rubber. That solved the vibration issue...



Not to rain on your parade, but it won't really save you from freezing - your knees will get cold before anything else ;)

The only thing I can't keep warm is my hands (well, fingers really). A fairing that covers the hands would take care of that, but then...... it wouldn't be a Monster!

Good lined cordura riding pands with knee armor... warm knees are no problem.

Second after my hands, are feet. My Sidis are nice and snug and I can't really fit any bulky socks inside.

I have the F series sport shield from national cycle, works well and actually looks realy good.
You can adjust the angle, so when its warm i tilt it all the way down. It uses the headlight bolts and it is sturdy, no shake to it. I reccommend it.
However its not on National Cycles website, I found it on JC Whitney.
Duc-N-Har has the F series double bubble model on hers and has pics under members bikes, Deb H.
