Aloha and Welcome to the Forum SwingMing from the UK
Make friends with the search bar for all things Silverwing and a bit more besides.
Just search "Windscreens"
There are 2 schools of thoughts regarding windscreens, both from Givi.
Givi DT 214 extra tall fixed screen(tallest) or AR214 adjustable(not so tall).
Plenty of comments on both in the search bar.

Hope this helps.

Be safe, be seen!

09 Honda Silverwing FJS600 with a lot more mods.

Ps. I'm 6.5", was using the DT214, now using the AR214.

Welcome SwingMing! I too have a Silver Wing and a Forza! Love both of them. I am 6'0" and the stock windshield had to go... I bought a custom Cee Bailey unit cut to my specs and it is great, sadly though they no longer make them for us. So Givi is the way to go, I prefer the fixed unit rather than the adjustable but whatever works is great! I installed a fixed Givi shield on my Forza and it made a huge difference!

Welcome.
If you want to see over the screen, you're going to have to put up with wind noise.

Thanks for the advice guys. Problem with windscreens is the same as seats. People have different asses as they do opinions lol. All I’ve seen is the givi options and it seems more and more people are opting for the OEM screen. My Forza has the short shield, and it’s honestly perfect. But I rarely ride it over 50 mph. When I do it’s totally fine, upper body just gets clean air. Anyone with a short shield on a Swing? I’m tempted to cut mine but I don’t want to get beat up cruising 70+ which is the main reason I wanted the bigger scoot. The wind noise isn’t terrible, but it’s definitely loud and I’ll need earplugs if I keep the stock on

Welcome SwingMing to the BEST SWing forum on the net.
I have an 08 SWing with a Clearview XL screen. I think the XL stands for Extra Large. Not really sure but it's the one that came with the SWing when I bought it from my sister in Florida. She tipped it over in her yard and needed the neighbor to help her pick it back up. She figured that if it happened on the road she'd be in trouble so she offered it to me. I got on this forum to explore the SWing's ups and downs and found out there's not many downs. So my son and I took a trip to FL to get it and I haven't regretted it since. It's a great machine!
Since then I had a Motor Trike kit put on it about 8 years ago and have no regrets about that either.
That's my baby!!!

I use the up and down Givi (as in the snow covered December photo) and I keep it down at minimum most of the time. From riding naked bikes (as opposed to riding bikes naked), I've concluded that even very small screens deflect air into the riders face and helmet and that no screen at all gives the least wind noise. For going paces speeds above 80km/h/ 50mph, I stick the screen up to just below eyeline and stick in a set of earplugs. I recently had my head examined and the audiologist reckoned I had the best hearing she had ever witnessed in my age group.

welcome Swing Ming ; I'am 5'8" and have the fix Givi screen and really enjoy it compared to the original windshield. Last Swing had the original screen and I added one of those wind deflectors which worked OK but still too much wind noise.

Added this new double bubble windshield. Verdict still out on it. Even less wind protection than stock. Looks good though.
