    so I know the GSA windshield is rather large. I have a 2018.
    Does anyone make one larger??? I can’t find the dimensions so decided I would ask the crown. Also the side wind deflectors.
    Thanks

    I have the V-Stream Deluxe Touring windscreen from Nationalcycle. I am 6'3 and it makes a great "bubble" of calm air. It's actually a little TOO effective in Florida during the summer. Great in the rain, keeps a lot of the weather off of me. I keep it in the "low" position, and my eyes just see over the top of it. If I move it up, then I am looking through the screen. I also have the windshield brace kit they recommend with this screen.

    If you are looking for a taller / very effective screen, this is the ticket.

    Don’t you guys feel pressure at the back of your helmet at highway speeds with those barn door windscreens?

    I'm 5'11" and have the touring model from National Cycle. Great piece of kit, but like Dmack said it is almost too effective. I love it when it's cold and when there's any type of weather, but when it's hot, man is it warm. Other than looking kinda goofy it's awesome, but I am considering something smaller. No pressure that I've experienced.

    I've got the Puig touring windshield that I use in cool/cold weather. It's too effective in hot weather and keeps all of the air off of me, even in the lowest position.

    I have the Puig touring and like others have said it's good for cold/rain. Im 5-11 and have no need to run it in the high position. I purchased the Puig reinforcement kit with it too. Now I must say this reinforcement kit has absolutely transformed the effectiveness of the stock screen in the high position. So much so that I recommend you try this simple mod first. It keeps the stock screen from flopping on the left side and has changed the wind bubble IMO. I use the stock screen all the time now.

    Yeah just about all the windscreens need the extra support bracket. First thing I did on my bike.

    Check out the Aeroflow website. They've got a lot of drawings with overlays and measurements of stock windscreens and theirs.

    Regardless of screen size there needs to be a way to break the vacuum behind said screen.
    Reason I asked about pressure in the back of your helmet, from my experience using older (Luftmeister) fairings, there was dirty turbulent air always pushing from behind.
    A small spoiler like the Xcreen, Puig, or Laminar Lip does wonders on any size windshield.
