F4 Customs +4" Windshield w/vent for GL1800 2001 - 2013

Postby skins92 » Sun May 12, 2013 11:24 am



I have a gently used F4 Customs +4" windshield for the 2001-2013 Honda Gl1800 Goldwing.

The shield is 4" taller than the stock. It is also 2' wider and thicker than the stock windshield. The windshield is scratch resistant, repels water and has excellent optical clarity. Can be cleaned without special cleaners - can even use a squeegee at the gas stations without worries for scratching.

This windshield is especially useful for tall riders. Significantly reduces wind buffeting.

Pricing at F4 Customs is $415.00 new. Will take $200.00 plus shipping. Contact me for pictures.

Hey, Jeff.

It's still available. It's Friday evening as I write this. I'll see if I can take some pics and post them here. I'm pretty computer literate but I haven't used this forum before so it's all new to me. Hopefully I can get some pics up by Saturday, 5/18.

Bob

skins92, why are you selling this windshield if you don't mind me asking? Also, with the thicker diameter how is it too raise and lower the windshield when installed? I've been looking into these windshields and have seen both positive and negative comments from others who have and was just interested in what you thought. Thanks, Jeff

I've had this shield on for about 40k miles. Lots of positives to it: you can clean it with anything, it's very sturdy, provides great wind protection as I sit tall in the saddle with a tall upper body. The only negative of the windshield to me is that it IS NOT adjustable. This isn't a problem for me most of the time but when it gets real warm (which I encounter on many of my treks starting from California) I've just decided to switch to the shorter windshield so I can adjust it. The F4 +2" is adjustable. But their cost is approaching $400.00. If you're tall or have a tall upper body, this thing is great if you can deal with the non-adjustability. As mentioned above, it gets its great protection by being 4" taller and 2" wider than the stock shield. It's also thicker because of its size.

Thanks Skins92, unfortunately for me as stated before I'm only 5'6" but I like the bigger windshields but I also like the ability to adjust the height. I'll let you know what I decide. Thanks again:)

Just a thought, if it's not sold yet.
Rather than taking such a "hit" on cost, take a look at adding Baker mirror wings and/or Baker upper/lower air wings. These can be opened in warmer weather to direct air onto you and a passenger, along w/having the windshield vent open.

Thanks, tfdeputydawg for the advice. I already have the hand Air Wings and they do assist a lot in re-directing some air flow when turned outwards but I've still decided to switch windshields and have gone to the smaller size. As for taking the 'hit', well, you live - you learn.

Have you sold the F4 yet? What is the condition? Pits/chips? Scratches?

I still have the windshield. Yes there is some pitting and scratches because of use but it is still in very good to excellent shape. Click on the pics above and they will expand in size to show you the optical claririty of it.

FYI - for anyone responding to this ad - I am currently in Ireland on a motorcycle tour. Because some of our B&B's may not have Internet there may be a delay in my response. I return to California on July 2nd.

As I just received a message asking if the windshield is still available. It has been sold and for the life of me I don't know how to remove this post.
