I have the tall cal sci, mikes shield, several homemade sheilds, and the laminar lip which I have tried on most all the shields.
I am also using the adjustable bracket, can't think of the name right now.
If you go to the cal sci site, my bike is the one with the 11 inch tall shield. He made it especially because I wanted a really tall one.
I have drilled different holes, moved the shields up and down in and out, tilted in and out and just about every position you can think of.
The bottom line is, on this bike because of the size limits you can use because of the mirrors and handlebars, you are going to get buffeting and noise from all of the shields at some time or another.
I find the adjustable bracket helps because I can tilt back and forth and overcome some wind conditions that change with which direction I am going and how fast I want to go.
You will not find one shield which will give you that magic quiet spot at all times, it does not exist. Sometimes you will love the shield you have , and other times you will hate it.
I switch back and forth between all my shields, and I cannot say one is markedly better than another. Some days I like one, and before I get back home, I am unhappy with it and try another only to not like it any better.
I have found I cannot be satisfied all the time, there are times when I just have to accept the wind and be ok with it.
If I had to pick one shield which hits the middle of the road for all conditions, and also is good to look through distortion free, it would be the tall calsci.
I find my self going back to it most often.
The versys just will not let you use a big barn door shield.
Some of the combos I have tried have been helped with the addition of the laminar lip, but it looks like heck, and you can't look through it.
After saying all that, I would say get the cal sci.
Anybody else think these buffalo wings taste a lot like chicken?
