    Cee Bailey Shield

    I installed my light gray +2 Cee Bailey yesterday. I have only ridden about 30 miles so far. I can tell Im going to like it. I have only tried a couple of height settings so far. I know already I will like the highest setting for winter and long distance riding. The wind is a non factor now and instead of listening to the wind roar thru my helmet vents, now all I hear is my engine and exhaust. I can also tell I will be able to happily ride with my helmet visor open with the windshield in pos 3 and 4. I havent experimented with 1 and 2.
    The light gray tint is almost imperceptible. Almost not worth the extra $20, but I'm still happy.
    I just need to learn how to clean it properly without damaging it.
    Anyt thoughts from you other CeeBailey owners?

    I have the Cee Bailey +4 and use Slipstreamer Windshield polish/cleaner with a microfiber cloth, it beads water really well and removes minor scratches

    Read their web site: it clearly says how to take care of the windshield.

    Ditto.

    I clean mine with some wet cloth/paper towels/newpaper. Soak the towel and lay it on the windshield. Let it sit for about 5 min. Apply more water if necessary to keep the towel wet. After about 5 min pull off the towel (if you use paper do not 'wipe' off the towel, lift it off). Rinse off remaining dirt.

    If you wipe it with anything while dirt/bugs are on there you will scratch it.

    I love my +6 and will get another when this one wears out.

    it's such a great product indeed. i'm very happy that just yesterday cee bailey came out with a windshield for the tiger explorer. i loved my +2 on the NT and glad i held off from other offerings out there. i'd say enjoy it, but that's just a given as i know you will!

    I have a light gray +2. I really like it and it works as advertised.

    Rick's method works great. It is also the treatment of choice for face shields. Never use Windex or Rain-X. Dishwashing soap like Dawn is OK, but it is best to just use water.

    Re: Cee Bailey Shield

    Merry Christmas to me, I am about to pull the trigger on a Cee Bailey and I think I am sold on the +4. Clear is fine, my summer morning commute can be dark and cold. Looking for that nice "Cone Of Silence" I get when I duck down (about 4" I figure) behind my stock windshield. I am about 5'10" and want to go with the shortest shield possible to get the max protection, noise, and wind reduction.
    Any comments from those with experiance?
    Thanks!

    I''m 5'10" as well and I went with the +2 in light grey. The "flip" at the top of the Cee Bailey worked well enough, in the center position, I did not need the extra height of a +4 or larger. The shield was just below eye level and did a great job for me. I could still pull the shield up another two settings if necessary. My biggest issue was I needed to be able to put the shield waaaay down on hot days for the additional air flow...
