How do you measure your windshields?
Our windshields are
measured from the center screw in the fairing to the top of the windshield. For
example, an 8" windshield looks slightly shorter when inserted in the
fairing because the base is inserted in the fairing mounting bracket.
Head over to our VIDEOS
PAGE and watch our “How to Measure Your Windshield” video to help you decide
which size is the perfect fit for you. Factors such as rider's height, posture,
body/leg ratio make everyone a unique fit.
Will your windshields work with fairing
All LRS windshields for
FLH series work with fairing pouches with exception of the 7" and 8"

Long Ride Shields
Windshields are formed using a special heat forming method to preserve the
optical clarity of the material. As a part of the forming, a Flip-up, or re-curve,
is formed at the top of the windshield which deflects wind over the rider’s
head. Our design has been tested and proven to maximize the amount of wind
deflection while allowing for the least amount of drag.
Currently, most LRS
windshields are made from Impact Modified Acrylic. Our ELITE series of
windshields are made from Glass-Coated Polycarbonate material.
Acrylic, Impact Modified Acrylic, and
(Trade names: Plexiglas or
Acrylic is one of the
most transparent (clear) materials known. It is used to make fiber optics,
which transmit light signals over long distances. While acrylic has greater
impact resistance than glass, acrylic is breakable.
Impact Modified Acrylic (IMA)
Impact Modified Acrylic
is made by adding butyrate to acrylic and significantly improves its impact
strength. We have had a UPS truck drive over one of our Ultra windshields to
prove that it can take a beating. IMA has moderate scratch resistance because
of its relative hardness and is a great choice for windshields. Scratches can
be buffed out. Several major brand names of windshields for motorcycles are
made from IMA.
(Trade names: Lexan or
Poly-carbonate was dubbed
early on as the “Unbreakable Plastic”. Compared to Acrylic, it is softer and
tougher (more leather-like) than acrylic. In its general-purpose form,
polycarbonate is not a good material for windshields because it scratches
easily and is UV susceptible. When a mar resistant (Glass) coating is applied
to the outer surfaces, it becomes an excellent material for windshields. The
cost of coated poly-carbonate material, plus additional processing time, drive
up the price of this type of windshield.
Because all plastics are
susceptible to various chemical solvents, we recommend our HOG WASH detailing
solution or the use of mild soap and water for cleaning plastic windshields.
Purple Slice and Brillianize are also acceptable cleaners. Always clean windshields
with a soft cloth, not paper towels. DO NOT clean plastic windshields with
Windex. Avoid using solvents such as gasoline, acetone, MEK, lacquer thinner,
etc., on plastic windshields. DO NOT USE LOC-TITE ON YOUR WINDSHIELD.
Our windshields maintain
a classic look while achieving maximum results. Many of the riders who try our
windshields write back to us and tell us just what they experienced when they
put it on their bikes: the results have been astounding and the looks are
