Replacement Windshield Opinions?

I have checked the archives but have not seen much on the difference between the 2 Cee Bailey's windshields:
#2 style (I would order a -3 or -4 @ 5' 10")
or
Hyperflow Ultimate

I see the #2 has a rise to push air up. The hyperflow does not.
Any difference is wind noise? Back pressure? Sig other confort at hwy speeds?

Any input is appreciated.

Re: Replacement Windshield Opinions?

The hyperflow does have a "lift" more than the OEM but not as pronounced as the #2. We like ours. The mid size one is really quiet. Its a lot more quiet than the OEM even when all the way down. I would add that at 5'10" you might want to check out the shorter sport shield if you want to look over it.

Re: Replacement Windshield Opinions?

IMHO; I have had both. If you ride in the rain then go with the # 2 -4. If you dont the hyperflow is fine. If you are interested I have the hyperflow sport that we can make a deal on. (send me a PM) It has about one month on it. But I ride everyday in florida and in the rain and it does not quite have the protection i wanted.

Re: Replacement Windshield Opinions?

Thanks Michael & Zeke for the information. I would like something lower than the stock shield. I will call CB tomorrow to see what they say.

Thanks again.
