I don't want to start a crazy windshield discussion. But specifically, has anyone tried the Sinister windshields on a RG?. Either the Dirty Bastard or the Wicked?

How was the fitment? Also did either of the shields do better than the stock wind deflector?

I want to do a painted to match shield and this one looks decent. Appreciate any opinions.

Its okay, but Im used to a flip up type shield like the Klock werks and Cee Baileys type. Protection from this shield is comparable to the stock shields that HD puts on the FLTRX bikes now. Im getting more air around my ears then I would like, so Im switching back to try and save my hearing a few more years.

Wind protection is the same as the short 6" shield that comes on the FLTRX bikes. Not much unless you have a low seat or drop seat. Slothy quoted me from the ad where I just sold my Dirty Bastard,.. Im switching to a klock werks.

As for fitment, I had to drill a new hole in my fairing to get mine to fit. Not a big deal, but might scare some people away.

Ive got the short Sinister. It looks cool. Its going to get molded into my fairing cause im not real happy with the fitment. Doesnt deflect any better than the stock 5" but hey it looks cool! My other buddy has the bigger sinister and I dont think its any better either.

well, guess ill rock the stock one for now - thanks guys and thanks peterod for asking the question :D

Ha. Yeah I'm kinda not understanding how nothing is a simple bolt on with Shope's stuff. It seems like the consumer needs to finish the job they didn't do,......and still pay outrageous prices. I think forums like this will hurt guys like that in the long run.

Thanks guys. Chainsaw, drilling a new hole didn't change the ability to use other shields, I hope?

Nope, the bolt was almost an 1" off from where the hole was. I went back with a KW shield and the wellnuts went right back in. I'd blame the shield, but Im blaming my bike. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING I have bought off a shelf has not bolted up to my bike. Bad Dad, Sinister, all those companies I contacted about the products not bolting up and every one of them say they don't have a problem. So I just modifiy and make it work.

Haha. You're too nice, Chainsaw.

There seems to be a running theme here with my bike. I know how to bolt on parts,.. hell I can make just about any part myself but choose not to on a lot of things. It just seems like everytime I decide to buy something instead of make it, there is fitment issues. From now on,.. nothing will be bought :0 (5):

i have also seen some guys buy a windshield for the protection such as the windvest, then have it painted to match your bike so you get the best of both worlds. (looks cool & get the wind protection you want) just an idea
