Default Headlight Protector

Just wanted to share what I feel like is a great deal on a ST1300 headlight protector. I'm not sure if we are supposed to link out to an item on eBay and if not I apologize. I ordered the ST1300 headlight protector from a UK firm called Slipscreens Limited on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-ST-130.../251902820592?).

I got mine today and the fit and finish is outstanding! I paid $28.16 (USD) for the protector and $14.83 (USD) for shipping from the UK for a total of $42.99. It took awhile to get here as I payed for it on 3/18/2015 and it arrived today. The wait was worth it though.

Cheaper than the Aeroflow.
But once again I find myself going with a known product that has withstood the famous Southwest roads and sand.

It ain't cheap but mine has now been on for 13 years, still clear with minimum road dings.

FYI: I have the Aeroflow on my current ST1300. I also have their windshield. I recommend their products highly.

Tried StoneGuard on my first ST1300. It is a thick, soft plastic coating is applied to the overall surface of the headlight.

Stone Guard also used to offer a protection kit for the Tupperware portions of the ST1300. Not sure whether they are still in business, though.

I bought the Aeroflow product, while waiting for the bike to arrive.
I never got around to installing it.
Still in the tool chest.

I think I prefer the thick stone guard type stuff to a product like this one or the Aeroflow one.
The stone guard applies like 3M film and stays on well.

The problem I have with these headlight protectors is the mickey mouse little Velcro squares that are supposed to hold them on.

I have never seen any that will stand up to repeated removals for cleaning.

Once they pull off of the headlight they are done.

My Aeroflow came with round 3M Dual-Lock 1 inch in diameter.
Three of the original four are still attached and operating well.
It came with a complete set of replacements which I still have three of.
I remove the guard often for cleaning/waxing/polishing. Yes I wash and wax my bike.

The little silicone bumpers on the other hand have not held up as well and have been replaced, as needed, several times.

I get the distinct impression this is one of those cases where size does in fact matter.
High quality 3M stuff doesn't hurt either.

Put on too much 3M Dual Lock and you will struggle to get the thing off again! Genuine outdoor-strength Dual Lock is very strong and does not easily pull off.

Ciao,

That is why the Aeroflow comes 4 one inch diameter pieces.
Holds well, removes easily, and stays in place.

Aeroflow is a longtime provider of quality products and not a producer of the standard Chinese crap held on by even crappier products.

Anyone have feedback on CeeBailey vs MCL headlight protectors for the ST?
I have CeeBailey on my GL1800. It took a hit and broke out a big piece of the protector, but the light was fine. I contacted them, and they sent a brand new set for free. Very good customer service.
