OK, I am breaking down and buying a windshield for my 950. I went to the yamaha dealer on Saturday to sit on the 950T wanted to get a good feel for the windshield size.

It seemed a bit on the short side to me. Coming somewhere between my chin and mouth. Sales guy says it's a 16" windshield. I have never had a windshield on any bike I have had, mostly because this is my first cruiser. 80% of the riding I do is two up.

Those that have the 950T:

What do you think of the windshield size?

Anyone do 2 up riding? and what does the other half say about the windshield?

More than likely I would go with a Memphis shade, just because of price. Either the Memphis fats or slim

I Ialso just bought a new 950 T but have not yet taken delivery. I had some concerns about the windshield because it appears much shorter than the Memphis Shade on my 750 Shadow. However, the dealer says it fits my 5'7" frame well --- only time will tell and I should get a better feel on a long and windy ride.:eek:

Id check out West End Motorsports. They sell a bunch of Memphis Shades for the 950 at a pretty decent price. Plus shipping is free on orders over $199. I think 18" is a good height. Im probably going to order the black MS Speed Demon for my 950.

My bike came with the short windshield and it makes a difference in the ride to be sure and still allows the feel of wind on the face, if you like it that way.

I bought mine and got the medium windshield as an upgrade. At 05'08" & a little over 200 it fits me perfectly. :)

I have the '09 950T with the shorter windshield. Wind buffeting became an issue. I was going to spring for the next size taller replacement windshield but decided to try a set of memphis shades windshield lowers. About $80. Stopped the buffeting. Something about high and low air pressure caused by wind under the windshield. 2200 mile road trip last summer and no problems.

I have the short one on my 950T. It's not bad, but I wonder if the medium wouldn't be better.

I have the Memphis Fats 17 inch ruby tint shield on my '09 950. On my last bike, a 1998 Suzuki Savage, I had the 15 inch black tint with matching lowers. The Fats is a very good shield but I do experience some buffeting and will be getting the lowers.
