I've got the 950 Tourer with the 15" windsheild. It is too short for me. Anything above 45 and I get thumped by the wind. The OEM replacement windshields for the 950 are 16 3/4" for the short and 20 1/4" for medium. This has been driving me nuts since I bought the bike. Why would they put a 15" windshield on the bike and not offer it as OEM replacement?

Then I found a 15" windshield, but it is for the 2009 V STAR 1300. This got me to think that these windshields can be put on a 950. The 15" on mine is a 1300 OEM windshield.

The medium is 19" which is a hair bigger than I want, but much better than the 20 1/4" medium.

The pictures look identical. Does anyone know if I can put the 1300 windshield on my 950?

The other plus, if I can do this, is that the 1300 windshields are available. The 950's are not... at least not yet.

Yes they're available for the 950, check out the link below. It states that "Replacement windscreens are available in all three heights and also fits standard Tourer model windshields." And they cost less than the 1300 replacement w/shield

i've got the 16 3/4" on my 950. i'm 5'10" and have the perfect clearance so that i can see over the top and not have to look through it, and i get just the right amount of wind on my face so that it's not too hard, yet enough so that i know i'm on a motorcycle and not riding a 2 wheeled car like your electraglides and goldwings.

I'm 6' 1" and I find that my stock 16 3/8" w/shield is to short, it comes up to my adam's apple and I get to much wind buffeting so I will replace it with with the 20 ½" .
