Powerbronze Wind Screen pics and review

Mounted the dark tint Powerbronze windscreen on my F model. My first reaction when pulling it out of the box was it seemed smaller than expected. I do like the dark tint. You can see from my pics the difference between stock and the Powerbronze.

Performance: I'm 5'11"....the stock screen had the air hitting me mid chest and going into my helmet, even with a chin windskirt on the helmet...and my eyes would water.

The Powerbronze unit takes the air off my chest but not over my helmet. But my eyes no longer water as no air is entering under my helmet. Cruising at 80mph is a nicer experience.

I was able to get the trim for the shield installed unlike another person on here. Nice to not have the crazy sharp edge.

If you are looking for NO air hitting you this isn't the option.

I paid $79.95 USD plus $10 shipping. Took about 10 days to get it shipped.

Im happy.

NOTE, if you install this shield check clearance for both mirrors when the bars are turned full distance. I have to move my mirrors outward about .25". No negative effect.

Powerbronze screen and tailtidy put on today, not too sure about the tail tidy but probably look better with a small plate
Then did 50 miles in the pouring rain
Bike now washed and back in garage!

Is that the double bubble or airflow?

How do you find the wind now with the new screen, does it direct it over your helmet now?

I'm 6' 1" and the Powerbronze screen doesn't direct the wind blast over my head, but it is a noticeable improvement on the original (in looks too). Triple digit mph is perfectly sustainable

Personally I wouldn't go any taller with the screen because I think they start to look fugly.

I agree and thats why i am asking about this one as it does look good.

I am also thinking this may do the trick and just install it for the longer rides

To be honest I haven't noticed a lot of difference but think it does look better
