I had the HD quick detachable windshield on my 1200L. I had ordered the low profile height, based on my experience with Memphis Shades Fats. After 7000 miles commuting back and forth to work, 130 miles roundtrip, I was tired of the wind noise and my helmet being buffeted constantly at highway speeds. They wanted more at the dealer for a taller replacement plastic and I liked the HD QD brackets better than the Memphis Shades hardware. Perusing a J&P catalog, I discovered that Memphis Shades had HD replacement plastic for about $40-50 cheaper, Next I started watching e-bay. After a couple of months of no luck finding replacement plastic for a Sporty or Dyna on Ebay, I did some measuring and research for alternatives. It looked like the MS replacement plastic for a HD Springer Softtail would fit. I had seen a couple of those on ebay. I scored the next one that came up for $36. Pulled the HD windshield apart slipped in new plastic....Presto, Chango... Taller shield, buffeting almost completely gone up to 75mph, and in the rain my face shield stays mostly clear. :banana On top of that, MS uses a thicker piece of Lexan. Thank you to everyone who posts tips and hints here. Ride safe!
