Unless you just want something newer, what you already have, set up the way you have posted, is probably a better bike than the new ones. But don't listen to me, as I trade bikes like some change out underwear. tp

Dude, thanks, really!!! I ordered the Memphis Shades replacement, went with the one that's totally clear.

Paying it forward, to add to Qdog002's helpful info, some observations:
  • The Memphis Shades windshield that was recommended is made of Lucite Acrylic (harder to scratch; easier to shatter), where the Harley-Davidson windshield I'm swapping out uses Hard-coated Polycarbonate (harder to shatter; easier to scratch, although they coat theirs so not really sure).
  • Memphis Shades windshields is about 30% thicker than Harley-Davidson windshields (took a close up of them side by side).

  • The Lucite Acrylic material used by Memphis Shades is a lot clearer than the Hard-coated Polycarbonate material used by Harley-Davidson (maybe 10% shading, not sure if that's due to the 2 years I've had it).




  • Due to the slightly thicker material, I had to go to Lowes to get 1/4" longer bolts, and some counter sunk washers...the finished look is actually really nice!


​​I'd hate to throw away the 14" OEM glass, since its like new (unless the 10% density is an issue), no scratches at all...if anyone wants it, PM me...its yours if you send me a shipping label for a 22.5" x 29" x 4" box, probably 10 LBS (I don't have a scale)...I'll drop it off to ship to you.

I love this forum, lots of good advice, and I saved a few hundred dollars, that I would have spent buying Harley-Davidson's next taller windshield.

Thanks,
Don
