    California Scientific windshield

    My '06 has had four different windshields now. Stock, Cee Bailey, Aeroflow (medium) and now Ca. Scientific (large). IMHO the CA Sci is the best of them.
    The cee bailey put an irritating stream of air right into the face shield area at a variety of heights,and not good for the passenger. The aeroflow was better, but had more buffeting and back pressure issues than I liked. I kept experimenting with diverting or blocking air flow at different points on the shield and the laminar lip. Still not happy. Despite a lack of feedback about the Ca Sci windshield, I thought I would give it a try. I only live about 2 hours from their office, so I paid a visit to Mark Lawrence. He was quite helpful and we mounted the large size. In hot weather, I am thinking a medium would be better for more flow to my chest on the lowest position, but overall the large is the best for me at 5' 9". Greatly reduced buffeting and back pressure both. I am finally happy. He doesn't advertise, all word of mouth, so I wanted to post here with my results and encourage people to try his windshield.
    PS He makes a small wind diverting clear shield for under the mirrors. It reduces the wind that hits the passenger dramatically. My wife said in the hot weather, she liked the extra air, so we will save those items for more chilly weather rides.

    I've got the calsci large as well and have been quite happy with it for close to 2 years...

    I would have been FAR better to go the conventional lines and had my Monkeys try and serve me Ice Cream already packaged...

    Lets just say I still can not speak of the problems which raised it's ugly head when I was trying to get them to serve Soft Serve...



    We even already had a deal cut to make $,$$$,$$$ selling T-Shirts that went South too...



    Sherob has now taken over the lead in having animals serving Ice Cream while we ride... He has made bold steps and it looks like he is just WEEKS,,, away from trying a "Live" trial run...

    Re: California Scientific windshield

    I have a large windshield I got frome Mark several years ago. Had to notch it in the lowest position so it would not hit the mirror housing.
    Awhile back I was riding on a country road (not any trafic) and decided to do a U-turn in the road. Turned the handlebars to full lock, (I do have the Gen Mar handlebar risers on) and the windshield made contact with the front brake lever. Luckly no trafic, I went down like a rock! I did look around to see if anyone was looking! Went I got home I took it off and put the stock windshield back on.
    Know anyone that wants a large CalSci windshield?

    Mark must have changed the design since you bought your shield. There's no contact with the brake levers at full lock at all. I have risers too although they are Helibar.

    Re: California Scientific windshield

    Did a ride in last year in route to Russell Day-Long and Mark let my buddy and I install new windshields, took a test ride and have not taken it off since.

    He recommended the medium for the ST and my buddy on an FJR got the large.

    It is a great shield and I never have to look thru the shield anymore.
