Rifle's windshields do not have Flips, Flares or Recurves. Here's why.

Description 

ST1300 Windshield System (electrically operated)

Two Styles-"T" (Touring) and "S"(Sport)

 

"T" (Touring) Tinted Version
When BMW introduced the first electrically controlled windshield it suffered from poor performance in the upper settings. Recent adjustable windshields from Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda have similar design problems; steepening angles as the shield is raised.

The ST1300's electrically operated windshield's angle is also too steep in the upper ranges. Even though the Honda uses the same windshield for both versions of the ST1300, the windshield performance profiles are not. RIFLE has responded by designing a Windshield System for each bike. RIFLE's new windshield system, utilizing our innovative "Tuning Block", tilts the windshield back 4 degrees in all positions, for less buffeting and more airflow (equals less back pressure).

Another shortcoming of the Honda windshield is aesthetics. To us, the windshield looks "stuck on" especially in the upper position, and integrates poorly with the lines of the fairing. Our windshield, the "T" (Touring) windshield extends down and now looks like it belongs.

We recommend sizing your windshield for use primarily in the lower to middle positions. This is where you will obtain the best performance. Please note the RIFLE windshield works only with the "Tuning Block" installed and is not compatible with the OEM or aftermarket windshields. The RIFLE "T" windshields for the electrically adjusted and manually adjusted stock shields are not interchangeable.

In the lowest position our windshield system's three sizes are: same height as stock, 2 inches taller, and 4 inches taller. Width: From same as stock at widest point to 7" wider at the top. We can also build custom sizes, higher or lower.

"S" (Sport) Tinted Version
For those whose riding preferences are more "sport" than "touring" we now offer an "S" (Sport) version. More width where it is needed; at the top, a more aerodynamic curve pushes the air out wider, tuning blocks to fix the incorrect factory setting and you have a shield that looks like stock and performs like no other it's size. The "S" shield is also available in three heights: same height as stock, 2 inches taller, and 4 inches taller. Width: Same as stock at widest point, 3" wider near top. We can also build custom sizes, higher or lower.

"Dash Branding": If a windshield has a deep compound curve, like the factory ST1300 (and the old PC800 windshield), the windshield can act as a parabolic concentrator. Sunlight is focused on to the the dash causing it to overheat and melt and/or discolor. Rifle's windshield does not have a compound curve (for other performance reasons) and may eliminate this problem.
