Image for Spitfire: Good for Looks

We purchased a Slipstreamer Spitfire SS-06 windshield for my husband's new motorcycle. Windshields are supposed to help deflect wind on motorcycles for a more comfortable ride. We chose the Spitfire windshield for its smaller size and sleek appearance.

The Spitfire windshield looks nice on the motorcycle, does cut some of the wind, and really cuts the bug traffic. However, a larger windshield is more effective, as my husband found out riding a friend's bike. I suppose you have to sacrifice some comfort, if you want your motorcycle to look good.

The windshield is easy to install and very adjustable. Sadly, the clamp system that mounts the uprights to the handle bars leaves marks. So, if you plan to purchase this model ensure you have the clamps where you want them before you tighten them down.

There is no fluttering, if you install the Spitfire properly. So be sure to follow the installation instructions to a "T".


* Anodized aluminum hardware

* Windshield is easily removed and mounted

* For motorcycles with round or square headlights

* 15" H X 17-1/4" W

This Slipstreamer Spitfire windshield deflects some wind, but not like larger models different brands have to offer. I recommend trying another style if you are looking for good wind deflection.
