Yamaha Tour Windshield measurements.
« on: September 10, 2017, 11:10:48 am »
I am trying to get two measurements from someone with the Gen2 Yamaha touring windshield. I am after the distance from the top bolt hole to the top of the shield and the width of the shield in a straight line across the back close to the top as shown in the attached picture. Thanks

With all the different slants-shapes-mounting options it hard to say what the different numbers might mean.

Supposedly the Cee Bailey is 4 inches wider than stock but your chart says 1 inch wider ?  I suppose there are many different ways to measure.  Anyway I happen to be very seriously considering buying the 22 inch Cee Bailey to replace my 18 inch Yamaha shield, I'm waaaaay tired of the wind noise at higher speeds on long rides, if I was only doing short rides the 18 inch shield would be just fine.

Also overall length does not tell all. Some go lower than others so to really define the increase in height you must reference something like a bolt hole. Some shields have a little nub that sticks out at the bottom that adds about 1" to the length but does nothing for adding to overall protection.

Don't have a Cee Bailey screen. The measurement is 1" wider at the top. It could well be 4" wider at the widest point, that screen has some wacky curves.
Post up some measurements if you get one........   and get the lower wings if you don't have them.

My preference is the Parabellum. Drill some extra mount holes and the screen can be mounted high or low. Somehow the bike feels smaller in the dirt when the screen is out of your face.

 Ideally could buy one of each and give them all a good test, but I'd be broke and couldn't afford to ride any more.  Going to a Tenere rally would be The ideal way to get a good look at lots of options but as far as I know there are no Tenere rallies.

Cee Baileys website was gone Saturday and Sunday but today it's back so I tried to place an order but could not, so I called them, unfortunately the guy I spoke to says Cee Bailey has permanently discontinued all motorcycle windshield sales.
