Like to pass on some info on Windhields for SilverWing 600.
Over the past 60 years and over 1.5 million 2 wheel ,miles and lots of money wasted
Baseline for performance:
Heinrich upper and lowers BMW---Had on both plunger and earls fork, later set on tele fork R60/6=Perfect air/water/cold control----worked well with open face helmet even at German speeds

Scooter: Vespa PX200E with shield I think made by National Cycle. Perfect, secret: nose close to tip of shield.

HD--Old Winter windshield kit on standard windshield, tin legshields---pushed lots of air, kept you dry and warm in winter, sucked dirt on your back. But comfortable ride down the road.

NOW maxi-scooters. had 9 new ones since 1990. Standard shields all did not work well. Have bought and used replacement Puig,Clearview, Cee Baily, Givi (have tried both adjustable and fixed) Almost impossible for look over shield to work on maxi scooter-----YOUR NOSE IS TOO FAR FROM TIP OF SHIELD! Design flaw

MY finding for SilverWing.....only GIVI Adjustable works approaching well----shoulders still get a little air, little hand protection in hard rain and buffeting well controlled (foam ear plugs keep noise down).

I ride by choice in all weathers/long distances/ don't like to be beaten up by air and frozen in winter.

Reason GIVI adjustable works: I think-- air routed overhead by 2 piece design, sliding adjustment. I leave mine in low position as it works well there and no goofy head/neck positions required to see over.

Hopes this helps in making windshield decisions.

John,

I agree with you. I have tried quite a few on the SWing I had and I found the Givi Adjustable the best. But if it got cold here in the S.F. bay area in the winter I would probably have wanted the Clearview since it seems to offer the most wind protection. But the XL Clearview I had just flexed way too much for me at highway speeds, but I hear they fixed this.

I went back to the Givi one piece after having the adjustable on for about a year. We seem to have a lot of bugs in the summer and I just got tired of cleaning the two piece. I had 2 1/2 inches cut off the top so I can see over it in the rain etc. Works for me!

I haven't seen the Givi adjustable but as John said >>>Reason GIVI adjustable works: I think-- air routed overhead by 2 piece design, sliding adjustment. I leave mine in low position as it works well there and no goofy head/neck positions required to see over.

This sounds a LOT LIKE the Windbender windshield I tried out on a 1500 G'Wing, I liked it but sold my 1500 before buying one. When my present Givi gets to the replacement stage I may well consider the adjustable. Thanks f or the comparisons.

Givi 2-piece, ride with extension all the way up, works fantastic!

Cool looking! Gotta get a new windshield. Very noisy ride on the SW with a Neotech helmet and stock windshield. Much less noise with the same helmet on the PCX (tiny windshield) and R75/5 (no windshield).
