V650 National Cycle Windscreen '15/'16
Earlier this year a friend & I purchased (2) left-over 2015 V650’s, his is an LT & mine an ABS. My friend found the windshield extremely noisy regardless of where it is adjusted. All of my bikes have flyscreens or nothing, so the noise doesn’t bother me all that much, though it’s much higher than I expected. He disliked the noise so much, he wouldn’t ride the bike. Several months back he called National Cycle to see if they were going to produce a windshield for the “new” V, since he’s been very happy w/ several of theirs in the past. He was told repeatedly that they were coming out w/ something & that it was almost ready. After several months of calling, he was finally assured the windshield would be ready the following Tues. & arrived about a week ago. He found it to be terribly noisy regardless of where it was adjusted & called Nat’l Cycle for their take on the situation. They told him to send it back for a refund based on whether or not it could be re-sold as “new”. I didn’t see it, but according to my friend, the Nat’l Cycle windshield was almost straight up & down w/ little slant.
Have any of you purchased this windscreen and, if so – what are your thoughts? It’s my understanding they introduced a screen for the new V1000 as well, but that it mounts differently & has a slant.
