I've been looking at windshield possibilities for the last couple months... Digging into old posts on the forum here, and looking online... I finally decided on the Parabellum, mostly because it is custom designed for the R65, and because I could choose different heights. I literally received it and mounted it this weekend, and did about a 250 miler with a buddy today, and I am totally pleased with it. I'm about 6', and I opted for the 20" height. Glad I didn't get a shorter one.
Installing: went really easy, very beefy mountings, 4-point, attaches to the headlight bolts, and uses 2 heavy aluminum pieces to mount to the top fork brace. New bolts are included, a nice touch! I did wind up doing a bit of a custom re-bend on those aluminum pieces, just thought it needed to line up a bit better, no big deal. Rake angle is adjustable, I put it where it felt right. (about midway in the adjustment range)
Riding: I'm looking well over the top of the screen, and the air is deflected to just over the top of my faceshield on the helmet, that's perfect, as I still get a good flow of cooling air if I need it. A little burbly, but does not buffet. The shield really takes the pressure off my chest, but enough air comes around the sides to be pleasant on warm days (one ride, in mid 70s, we'll see how it does in cooler weather)
It literally transformed my riding experience! Even pushing into a 20-30 mph headwind at 70, no strain at all! The bike seems to like it, too.... fuel mileage came up from low 40s to almost 50 mpg (one sample, but WTH) It feels like a quality product, only time will tell on that one. It's not a cheap option, around $275 (ouch!) delivered, but I feel like the $$ was well spent.
I'll grab some pix tomorrow and post them, but it really does not mess with the looks of the bike, I think... To be continued...
