  • Windshields

    I want put a wider windshield on 2006 silverado, looking at other bikes i noticed that some look like they have polycarbonate (lexan) and some are acrylic like mine, the lexan ones look wider too, im wondering if they interchange, the lexan ones don't use the wide brackets like mine either, im trying to figure out if i can install my brackets onto the lexan windshield

    I put the wider windshield on mine. It adds to the air that has to be displaced. High speed mileage suffered a bit. This link has size larger and it is a Yamaha part.

    this link has it for sale

    Check out the ClearView brand with the recurve at the top. Ask about their scratch and dent sales.

      Seconded. Give them a call, they are incredibly helpful and will likely answer all of your questions and offer you options and education. Can't speak highly enough about them.

    I see from the ad that there is a medium so I'm assuming there's a small medium and large OEM lexan polycarbonate windshield, and I think we all agreed they were made by national cycle for Yamaha

      Stock shields made from polycarbonate, Lexan is a brand name of polycarbonate.

        The oem windshield on my 2006 is acrylic, somewhere around 2004 acrylic windshields were installed on the silverados, mine has lucite stamped into it

        Absolutely oem there's a 2010 silverado s model at the dealership around the corner from my house the one with the all chrome front and it also has a lucite windshield, look at the purple bike lug nut posted in " two very different road stars" its just too clear to be lexan, polycarbonate just doesn't let that much light through, acrylic windshields are much clearer than polycarbonate, you can easily tell the difference, lexan looks almost tinted

          Oh I don't know about that if they're made by the properly they have to be properly dehydrated and desiccated before molding. To prevent moisture from making bubbles in the plastic believe it or not. I'll take polycarbonate everyday all day. Just have to use real good cleaner too plexus is what I use. I just ordered a national cycle polycarbonate shield used on eBay, it said it was for a stratoliner s, but I don't believe it. for my new toy which is a Yamaha C3 Google that. Okay it's a 50cc water cooled fuel injected three valve per cylinder only one cylinder inverted forks, electric and kickstart, only weak spot is drum brakes. They are just so much fun to ride around the neighborhood otherwise known as a pit bike

            Anyone recognize this road star? This is what I want to do as a windshield. I was looking at memphis shades smoke windshield but I like this dark OEM one. Is it just tinted with limo tint?

              Thanks. He replied to me on Facebook. I wonder of it looks even in person. I'm not good at painting evenly

            What air filter is that? It isn’t a Maxair as it doesn’t have the clip to hold the spaghetti strainer on.

              Pretty sure there are some knock offs of the MaxxAir. I have always loved the look of them. Since I have the HSR42 getting a Harley filter is pretty simple since that is what I have on there now.

              Ramflo used to make these in round or oval.

            I don't even like a tinted windshield, I don't even like a . bottom tinted windshield. I damn sure don't want to painted one. It's all about safety and visibility you got to be able to see the s*** in the road

              I figured it wasn't a tall one so seeing over it isn't an issue. Accordingly, the wind protection isn't much either as per the owner.
