I just bought a California Science XL windshield and it does everything it said it would do but I have found that I need the wind to take the weight off my wrist. http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/ST1300prod.html. for sale fi anybody is interested.

I still use the stock windshield. Suits me fine. Haven't looked into getting a replacement.

I use the stock in the warm weather and the V-Stream when it's cold.

I like my stock shield which I have cut down five inches. I very seldom ride the freeway and with the shield down the wind lifts the weight off my wrists. I don't need super cold protection as when winter arrives I will be snowmobiling.

I don't have any problems with the stock windshield and have not tried any others. My only complaint is the wind noise, but that is mitigated by using ear plugs.

I too have stayed with the "stock" unit.

While I have seen other brands installed on the ST, I have not found a situation, nor a more appealing style, which causes me to give consideration to an aftermarket unit.

I replaced the stock shield with a Clearview +6/+2 because we ride mostly 2 up (my wife has 2 herniated disks in her neck) and she needs pressure relief. It worked well except in the rain. I found it didn't clear rain from it's surface (felt like I was looking thru a fog). Heard good things about the V-Stream from my BMW buds, so I bought one. I REALLY like it!
It is much smaller, does the same job as the Clearview for my wife and the shape channels rain off in a "V" shape as advertised.

Guys,
I voted stock, but was thinking of replacing mine...not sure if I wanted to spend that much I tried the over the mirror "wing" that is unfortunately not available from Cal Sci....a very good lil project....has a short coming but there is an easy fix...One not mentioned is the Givi w/shield nice item about 2" taller and about 3" wider.....my next best choice....

Talking Re: Which Windshield do you like best?

I'm 5'8" and 13stone and a few pounds. UK rider, electric screen. Fits me perfect. If it's hot (that's UK hot!) the screen is fully down. If it's wet (that's UK wet!) screen goes up until the rain flies over the top of me. If it's cold (that's UK cold!) I put on more clothes and lower the screen! Unless it's cold AND wet. If I'm going fast (UK fast = 3 figures), the screen stays right down. Easy. Honda designed the Pan around Mr Average (I think) and that's exactly what I am. It just feels right. Clapping
