cut down Cee Bailey's windshields.

A while back I had Cee Bailey's cut 2.5" off the top of one of their #1 (original factory style) windshields so that I could see over the top. It worked pretty well for seeing over the top, but the buffeting & wind noise from the air going across the top of my helmet was annoying.

So I ordered and installed the #2 style (reverse curve) -4. I haven't ridden with it yet so we shall see.

#2 CB 20" tall

Re: cut down Cee Bailey's windshields.

I have been very happy with my Cee Baileys #2 -2. I'm a tall guy but went through all the measurement gymnastics on their site before ordering so that I could get the best fit. In the lowest position, I get the wind in my chest & face for maximum air on hot days. About midway up I have a very quiet air pocket and am looking just over the top of the shield (it's here about 90% of the time). At the top of travel, it keeps a vast majority of the rain off me however gives some back pressure at highway speed. All in all, an outstanding purchase. Hope you have a similar experience.

Re: cut down Cee Bailey's windshields.

Someone told me the cutting should always done from the bottom end of the shield - not top. Of course one needs to drill new holes too...

Born to be wild so why not
