Windshield - Vstar 650 classic

Looking for a TALL windshield for a '99 Vstar 650.

I appreciate your time and sharing if you have a lead on a nice windshield.

I'd like to know also. I have a Memphis Shades but I don't think it's the top of the line. It's a little short for me. I bought it from a 5'10" guy and I'm 6'3". The top of the windshield hits me about nose level probalby when it's all the way up.

Cool Wind shield - Tall

I am not understanding your response. The Memphis Shades FATS, have a variety of sizes. You can check their website at http://www.memphisshades.com/fats_metric.shtml

My girlfriend is 5-6 and her preference is to see through the wind shield. I ride a Goldwing with a Tulsa Windshield. However, when she rides behind me the wind buffetting bothers her over time.

This is her first bike and we all know that comes with some risk of dropping, etc. So I am looking for a lower cost, clean, used wind shield. Yeah, she has gone to the dealership and seen the brand new ones and I show her the price tags.. LOL.

When I returned to riding, I got a Vulcan 800A and loved it. But I must admit that I like the Classic Vstar just as much. I am looking forward to getting her on the road and riding together.

Oh the spending does not stop there... We will be looking at bike to bike communications, new helmets, and other stuff.

Ride safe rubber side down.

Sorry, it was late when I wrote that. Mine is not a "Fats". I think mine is the "Speed Demon".

I like the Fats a lot better. Maybe down the road I"ll switch it out.
