2019 Versys 1000 SE LT Aftermarket Tall Windscreens

Hi folks. I have called a few companies that make shields for 2018 Versys 1000's such as Givi and Puig to check on availability. So far I haven't found anyone who makes a windshield for this bike yet as they have changed the mounting/screen shape for this year. I'm sure that by next spring these companies will have some windshield options, but can anyone steer me towards anyone who does make one now. I am 6'6" so I definitely need a tall option.

onewizard Thanks for the quick response, I will check it out. Something like this may be an option for me.....even when I get a taller windscreen.

hi dlars...

check out madstad. i have a 2018 1000 and its one of the better moves i've made so far. the adjustable mounting bracket plus the windshield shape works better for me that the stock windshield or the kaw touring, both of which i have.

for the record, i am 5'10", 185lbs, 32" inseam....

.. forgot to mention. i got the puig from revzilla and had to send it back. while the holes aligned, they were about 1/2 the diameter they needed to be for mounting... never got to try it on my bike....

Madstad doesn't make one for the 2019 yet and the person I emailed didn't really seem too interested in finding out any more info about it

Was that for the 2019 1000 SE LT? They also told me they had nothing in the works yet

Thank you, I think this will be an option to consider until I get a taller shield

No problem. Yes there are all kinds of shields for last year's model but no one seems to be in much of a rush to get this years model outfitted yet. I'm not sure if that's because the bikes are hard to get hold of or what the reason is.

MIGHT be because your bike is the SE model, a first-time for Versys SE...!
