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

Description 

Yamaha's windshield on the latest version of the FJR1300 has improved a little in some areas and has taken a step back in others. We approached a new windshield for the FJR 1300 like we do for all top of the line motorcycles we design windshields for—make it the best possible, without compromises. We didn't take the add a little here, a little there until the windshield hits something on the motorcycle, and then call it done. The windshield for the FJR needed a deeper curve, more airflow behind the windshield, and of course it needed to be larger.

For the previous version of the FJR we innovated and invented a "Tuning Block", which others are now trying to copy on the "cheap". We wanted to do the same for this version so that any windshield would work with it, but determined the new Yamaha windshield lifting mechanism design would not handle the stress of forcing a bracket into it, plus a windshield with the ideal aerodynamic curve would not match up to the factory mounts and not clear the fairing.

We designed instead, "Angle Optimizers", when mounted onto the factory windshield mounts with our windshield solves all the major issues with the FJR—a more aerodynamically curved windshield, proper spacing for the correct amount of air flow behind the windshield and a windshield mounted at the most effective angle in the upper positions. One minor downsize is the Rifle Windshield System for the ('06-12 ) FJR only works with the Rifle "Angle Optimizers" and the "Angle Optimizers" will not work with any other FJR windshield. The good news is, besides offering standard multiple sizes, we can build virtually any "custom" size you want.

Features and Benefits:
·Multiple sizes
·Angle Optimizers optimize windshield angle throughout adjustment range
·Deeper more aerodynamic curve provides cleaner air off edges (same curve as our Concours windshield)
·More airflow under windshield for more back pressure reduction (also eliminates "whistle")
·Elimination of compound curve at the top of the windshield (compared to stock) increases envelop of still air.
