Just added a F4 Sport to my GW. It does seem more clear and sheds water like mad.

Haven't got one yet! Ever want something "bad" to happen so you can buy that item you want :mrgreen:
The +4 gives the best buffeting protection for the rider and passenger. I'll will be getting that one as I'm 6' 2" and my wife is 5' 8". Definately will get one w/a vent for those warm/hot days!
Just wish they were available w/a light tint!

I also have the F4/+2. I am 6', 29" inseam and have a long upper body. I also use the Walmart Comfy seat with an air doughnut inside of that. I sit rather high. I removed the seat yesterday to try and get less wind, but found the seat was so comfy I put it on again as soon as I got home. As it sets now, the shield comes to just under my nose with it in the highest position.

There was no way to know what worked best without putting something on first. The OEM shield was much too low. F4 is by far the best shield I have tested on the last 3 bikes. I did have some issues with the shield. The first on the GL1800 had a bird's eye blemish in my line of sight and was replaced by Don at F4. The second cracked around the vent within two weeks and it just being parked, replaced by F4. The third has been the charm and no issues. I did however end up paying for all three installs and having to get rides to drop it off at the dealers.

If all the other problems get fixed on this Wing, I very likely will get the +4 version. I don't find it necessary while riding within 100 miles from home, but it sure would eliminate most of the buffeting at highway speeds on long trips.

F4 certainly takes care of any problems on their end. They also run sales on the shields. They did provide an advertised $50 refund, after I had already purchased the shield.

I've had a F4 + 4 for 2 years now .. THEY'RE GREAT ! .. you'll be glad you did.
Had a crack develope in my shield "after the warrenty went out" .. when I called them and talked with the .. they sent me a new one gratis quo.
They even paid for shipping my cracked one back to them ..
They're clear as not even being there .. and like already said .. they shed water like crazy .. cleans off with Windex and paper towels too.

I have not gotten mine yet. But we are have our bike triked and that is one of the thing being changed. I do not like the stock windshield as I am looking right inbetween the top of the shield and above. We opted for the F4 +4 . I am awaiting the bike back from the transformation to see how it will be.

I had a F4 +4 with vent for my 2007 Champion trike. Wife liked it a lot since it cut down the wind buffeting for her. We plan to buy the same thing for our 2012.

Well I've had my F4 for 3 yrs and the uv coating is coming off or it's delaminating one of the two. I sent a e-mail to them and got no response. I dont know what windshield I'll buy next but I need one.

I have a like new, F4 +2' w/vent I may be interested in selling (yechave@ptd.net). I need the +4' adjustable.

The bike is located at Lancaster Honda in Lancaster, Pa. for the winter. If your nearby, the dealer could install it as well.

If you want the original size, I've seen them listed on Ebay for $150 new, plus shipping.
