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.

Mine arrived yesterday.  Opened today and it looks to be just fine.

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.

We still have several new Gen II Windshields available along with many new 2010+ seats.

I'd say so, Jim. I don't know it they still have stock on these shields or not.
