windshields

Who makes the best windshield for my k 1300 gt? Would like to have some input before buying one. I am considering a vstream, anyother suggestions?

I have a Cee Bailey's tall shield and LOVE it! I also use the Saeng micro swirl edging as well (old habit, but it works).

I would appreciate hearing some wisdom on this as well. In my case, I am 6'7" tall and get a lot of turbulence at speed.

I replaced my stock with a CeeBaileys 28.5" tall windscreen and love it (I'm 6'2").

Had the V stream...ditched it as I found it to be looking through a glass barn door at speed...picked up a Cal-Si and wont look back..don't know what they do but it work almost too well in hot weather. Dead air and I can see just over the top...

I also have a VStream windshield. It's just perfect for me.
However, windshields seem to be a complicated issue, because everybody has a different experience with the same windshield (body height, helmet, posture, ...)

The ZTechnik VStream windshields are the best windshields for the K models!
At the moment Hornig offer them for a special price!
