Thread: National V-Stream Winshield

  1. #51

    Re: National V-Stream Winshield

    The V-Stream is incredibly efficient at deflecting almost all of the wind off rider and passenger. This summer I got quite hot several times riding in 90 degree plus heat. I ride with the shield full up all the time. Very, very quiet. I have SERIOUSLY thought about buying the whole vent assembly for a GoldWing (about $150). With some creative effort I wonder if it could be cleanly mated to the Stream? I think it would fit. My only worry is: would the screen be dangerously weakened by cutting a rectangle big enough for the vent to fit. If it didn't work, well I have done far crazier things. Opinions please....

    Vetter has his vents still being sold. I think they would weaken less that a big rectangle.

    When I had my first '99 Concours, I put two of the Vetter vents into the stock windscreen. They helped. Some.

    Then I switched to a Clearview screen and one of the options with it was the Goldwing vent. It worked better.

    I like the V-Stream on my NT better than either of those windscreens. But it can be hot. I had my screen all the way down on my way into and out of Mexico.

    If you do decide to cut a rectangle hole in your windshield, be sure to drill all four corners before cutting. A round corner is less likely to crack.
