WIndsheld and Reduced Wind Noise

Postby SAILOR » Tue Mar 19, 2013 10:24 pm



The other day I was riding a buddies GL1500. I noticed that going down the freeway at 70 miles an hour I had very little wind noise in my full face helmet. Wind noise was so reduce I could actually hear the stereo very well without my intercom turned on. After comparing the windsheld to my gl1200, I noticed it was much wider, and maybe slightly taller. I was wondering if there is a bigger after market windsheld for the GL1200 that is wider and taller than the stock windsheld. Note my GL 1200 is an interstate and has some add-on glass about an 2 inches on each side of the existing windsheld to make it wider. Looking to reduce the wind noise. Note I'm a tall guy 6 foot 2. Advice on oversize windshelds much appreciated.

I put a Slipstreamer Wraparound on my GL1100, and it made quite a bit of difference in the reduction of wind and buffeting, both for me and my passenger.

Thanks for the discussion gents. I'm 6'5" so this wrap around windshield seems to be something I could use.

Cheers
