    Default Windshield extension

    Anyone with experience using a winshield extension? Recommendations? I ask because I switched to a lower wider F4 on my RT so i can see over it, but doesn't rise high enough in bad or cold weather. I want my cake and...

    I have heard about Laminar (?) Lip extension that can be added to a windshield .... hopefully someone will chime in and direct you to the web site ..... good luck .... I'm pretty handy at designing things ( check my albums ) and I honestly can't think of a way to Mechanically do what you want with an RT windshield mechanism ...... good luck .... Mike

    I put one on my Can Am Tall Boy windshield and it caused the windshield to flutter enormously when at highway speed. Not sure how it will do on an F4 windshield. I took it off and bought the 25" F4 with the wings.

    If you are interested in one I still have mine and would let it go for $45.00 shipping included to the continental US. It's not a Laminar it is a Puig.

    Email me if you are interested. campermac@yahoo.com

    Laminar, Puig, Xcreen all have good add ons that should meet your needs. I have an Xcreen and like it a lot especially like that it is instantly adjustable.

    I have a tall touring BRP windshield on my '08GS with an extension on and it flutters a lot as well at freeway speeds.

    I have an X-Creen extension and have tried it on 3 different windshields. I found that it's only somewhat useful on the shorter windshields like the Route 129. But on the taller Blue Ridge windshield, it works great to deflect the airstream over your head and eliminate the buffeting.

    I ride with an X-creen 'Tour' clamp-on style extension on my 2017 F3L. Been almost 20,000 miles without problems; used with several different makes and sizes of windshield (BRP short stock, BRP Tall Boy, F4, etc.). Currently using in conjunction with Lamonster Freedom 17". The X-creen allows almost infinitely variable positions to control wind flow, noise, buffeting, etc. Easy and quick to adjust. Experiment until you find the position you like best. X-creen has two different sizes: "Sport" and "Tour"; the latter is a bit larger (both taller and wider) and is what I believe is better choice for Spyder. Easily removed and re-sold if it doesn't give you what you want. Look around; you may even find a good used one. Photo shows X-creen "Tour" added to BRP short stock shield on F3L. 20190626_173911.jpg

    I bought this on eBay. Good result for the price and does not need fixed installation.
