Title: Stock Gen 1/Gen 2 Windshield Group buy
Post by: Conrad on October 28, 2013, 04:35:01 am
http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=15426.0 (http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=15426.0)

3 - 2009 new factory windshields, no trim or mounting kit.  $79.00 plus freight.

35 - 2010 and later factory windshields, no trim or mounting kit.  $79.00 plus freight.

Freight for the lower 48 states is $12.00 to a business, $15.00 to a residence.

If 6 people commit we will sell them for $59.00 each plus freight.  If 12 people commit we will sell them for $50.00 each plus freight.

The above prices are good for any combination of Gen 1 or Gen 2 shields. FYI, these shields will fit any model year of C14.

So, do I need to commit again (http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=15426.msg189319#msg189319) here on this thread?
If so I commit to 2 Gen II shields.

Maybe so... my post on the other thread apparently had no bearing here.  So confusing.

Anyway, I said I would be interested in a gen 2 if the shipping was reasonable.  Kas posted it is $15 to a resident in the lower 48.  That is reasonable.

It is confusing. Conrad recognized it as confusing and started this post. I asked to be corrected, and you did.

That makes 11.

Rusty COG# 9585 (there are two Rustys and one rusty on the other forum so I included his number) sent me a PM on the other forum and said he is in for a GEN II windshield.
I told him I'd pass it on.

so that's 12 (maybe 14)?

From Kas via PM

The members can call in with their credit card information.  They can email the information.  They can send a USPS Money Order.  The amount should be $50.00 plus the $15.00 freight for a total of $65.00.  If it goes to a business the freight will be $12.00, but UPS will not deleliver to a residence if it is marked for a business, they will return the package to us.

We will not process any payments until we have reached the magic "12".

Just ordered my Gen II shield. These guys are really interesting, and I got the scoop on why the CHIPS and LA police stopped ordering C-14's from them. Not the widely circulated story of a weak regulator or alternator wiring harness, but one of troubles with a business partner, which I can personally relate to.

We have taken orders for nine windshields out of 12 (maybe 14).  If you haven't called and placed your order yet, please do so. 

Thanks

My 'new' shield was delivered yesterday in perfect condition.  :)

I didn't realize that the Gen 2 shields were made out of thicker material than the smaller Gen 1 shields. Nice!    :thumbs:

HE was out of Gen I so I had to do 2 Gen II . Weird.

I'm not understanding the "Weird" comment. Could you explain? Do you mean the shortage of Gen I shields?
If so, then: They are not you average parts reseller, they convert stock bikes to Police bikes. They put V Streams or other shields
on the Police bikes and are selling us the new original take offs. New orders for police bikes are going to be Gen IIs thus more Gen IIs available...or have I
misinterpreted the "Weird".  ???

Just thought it was odd that we had the numbers and wants on the page but when I called they were out. Must have been more folks wanting Gen I than spoke up or someone from outside the forum needed a Gen I replacement. I kind of wanted the different sizes to compare and choose from depending on the weather.  Based on the original post I responded to I thought I would grab one of each. Not a problem.  Happy to have a couple of extras to experiment with.

I'd wanted one of each, but could only order the gen 2. Randy at KAS told me that some of the gen 1 shields they had showed damage and could not be sold.

Gen 2 ordered.

Randy said the Gen 1s were showing signs of rubbing in the box during shipment. I supposed if you planned on cutting down or painting, those could still be an option for you. Maybe you could even talk a few bucks off the price (tho at $50, these are already a great deal).

I put my new Gen 2 shield on this morning and rode into work, it was 27f. Since I'm 5'5" I only had to raise the shield up an inch or two and it did a fine job of getting me out of the wind.

You either have a really short torso or you are not using handlebar risers, or both.  I am 5'7" (short legs, long torso) WITH handlebar risers, and I have to raise the gen 2 shield on a gen 2 bike up almost all the way and still have air hitting my chin and neck.  If I put it up the last inch or so, it creates too much negative pressure on my back and more air on the back of my neck.  It is obvious I need a different shield for winter.... still mulling over that.

You're right Max. Although I'm 5'5" I have a 30" inseam and I don't use risers. Don't need em, not prudent at this time.

Raising this shield just 2" is enough to get most of the wind off of me. I get the same negative pressure on my back and neck if I raise it all the way up or nearly so.

OK, some quick math and that means I sit 5" taller than you, before adding the risers and probably 7" with the risers.  So yeah, I bet you get the coverage you need, because it is like having a windshield 7" taller than mine!!

So, are you sitting on these risers to make you taller?

The risers change the driver's sitting angle.  The higher the handlebars, the higher you sit.  My above number was just a guess though, since it is actually a triangle and that would require geometry and it is WAY too early in the morning for that.

I did use geometry last week at work on one of those "guess how many X is in the jar" things.  I won!

Shield received.

I never did get an email confirmation, but it showed up 3 days after I ordered (and 2 of those were the weekend, and the 3rd was a national holiday), so I can't complain.


Thanks KAS.
