After 6 months of ownership we have decided we need to do something about the amount of buffeting my wife is getting in the passenger seat which means finding a windshield to replace the factory shield on our 2018 GW DCT Tour. I have looked at the F4 and the V-Stream. I have been in contact with Madstad and they say they are in the development stages for the GW. I have also looked at California Scientic. They make what they call the "Shorty" that I think looks very good, but I suspect it has more buffeting than the Honda shield. Does anybody have any experience with California Scientific win#shields in general and specifically with the "Shorty"?

The shield in the photos is the California Scientific "Shorty".

What is the shield that is in the pictures?

Is that the non-tour Honda shield?

I know your post says it's stock, but the stock tour shield is taller and differently shaped (and clear, which doesn't matter)

EDIT to add:
In the down position, the top of the stock tour shield is about 8" above the top of the dash.

Face palm....

I guess I should have finished reading instead of jumping to the pics...which I then interpreted as pictures of your bike, and the shield you were looking to replace.
Farmguy - Don't be so hard on yourself. LOL! I edited my original post after your first response. I wanted to make it clear the photos were of the California Scientific "Shorty" shield.
