  • Madstad Adjustable Windshield System for Honda Gold Wing GL1800 (2001 - 2017)

    What's included
    Our complete drop-in system is custom-made for your bike and includes everything needed to mount and position the shield. Your bike will not require any modification.

    • Black acrylic base plate (replaces the stock windshield)
    • A set of Madstad adjustable brackets
    • Acrylic windshield
    • All required mounting hardware 

    We replace the factory windshield with our own short version then bolt our adjustable brackets and shield to it. With the shield separated from the fairing it pulls air underneath it which is critical for smooth comfortable wind protection. It also means you can adjust the shield for the optimum height, angle and airflow for your particular height and riding position. You don't have to hide behind a tall, dirty and distorted windshield anymore but can enjoy an open view of the road instead!

    All Madstad windshields are made from 3/16" (4.5 mm) thick cast acrylic.

    Colors & sizing
    All our windshields come in three color options (clear, medium gray and dark gray), as well as multiple sizes. Here are our best guidelines for measuring to find your optimal windshield size:

    How to measure video: https://youtu.be/biFx4_vVGG4

    1) Review provided photo to determine the measuring point on the bike.

    2) Measure up from the measuring point, maintaining the angle of the forks (two wheeled vehicles, 55-60 degrees for other models).  

    3) Select the windshield size that will be aligned to mouth level.

    All of our adjustable brackets have at least 2" of up down range to fine tune the fit and about 15 degrees of angle adjustment used to dial in clean air.

    Transform your ride
    Madstad's patented mounting system allows riders to adjust the height and angle of their motorcycle windshield resulting in much smoother airflow, better wind protection and a more comfortable ride than any fixed windshield can provide.

    Riding is believing
    With the windshield separated from the fairing riders now have control over the height and angle of the shield to eliminate the vacuum that is the primary cause of most turbulence. The result? Smooth airflow placed exactly where it’s desired. Most customers have found that they can actually get better wind protection with our smaller adjustable shield rather than a larger fixed one. You don't have to compromise wind protection to enjoy the open-air motorcycling experience! 

    Customer Testimonial
    I have owned a Madstad Windshield for over four years on my GL1800 (Goldwing). It absolutely works as advertised for both rider and passenger. I have the bronze on black. Would I recommend this windshield? Heck yes! Fantastic product that looks as good today as the day I put it on.

    So flexible!

    The best thing about the Madstad system, is the fact that you can adjust the shield in so many positions. The bracket is easily changed for various conditions. The wind is no longer a factor when it comes to fatigue. I recommend the Madstad system enthusiastically!

    What a difference.

    Blown away, well not by the wind blast. I’m 6’2”, and ordered the 22” screen. And the original wind shield whilst looking perfectly on the bike created horrific buffeting of my helmet anything over 40 MPH. The first ride was with the windshield all the way down and forward. Immediately I noticed how much quieter the ride was. And even partially standing up to see where the air hits my helmet it’s just super smooth air. Not rough and no buffeting. Other than pure comfort the quiet really does let you hear comms. I can actually feel the bass and hear my music clearly with my Cardo Packtalk. I fully recommend Madstad for delivering their promise of a wonderfully comfortable and quiet ride, and the quality of craftsmanship is second to none. Everything is well made and the windscreen itself is absolutely beautiful. Thank you to Madstad!

    The Right Fit

    My Honda CTX seems to lean a little more than I am comfortable with. Tried several different plates and pads to no avail. This Madstad fits perfectly and is a well thought out piece of engineering. Now I can get a good night's sleep not worrying my bike is going to tip over.

    The engineering, fit and finish are all very impressive. Been monkeying around with the height and rake, will take some time to find the best compromise. The cold air sure tells you when you head the wrong way off of a mid setting which seems to work the best with the 14 in screen.

    Excelleng engineering.

    Just installed the Madstadt windshield on my Triumph Bonneville T120; ordered it online and it showed up about 5 business days later; packaged very well with all necessary hardware and good instructions. Gregs video pn the Triumph forum was a great help also except I used a rubber mallet where Greg used a hammer.

    Found using my torque wrench that to loosen the lower fork bolt took about 44nm; the upper took about 30nm; therefore, tightened them accordingly at attachment time. Later, per the Triumph shop manual, I found that the torque settings are 45nm and 24nm.

    Per the Mastadt video using the cardboard measuring device, my mouth lined up to the 21 inch line; I was 6' 2" in my younger days; hence, I ordered the 22 inch model. After installation, my eyes sighted about 2 inches above the top with the shield at its lowest setting (1 inch above headlight). Shield was parallel to the front fork. Initial ride around the subdivision had the air flow just flowing on the top of my toboganned head - otherwise bald. Maybe a few more adjustments to fine tune it. Did notice, I could hear the engine better. Later, on the road, above 55, my helmet experienced a significant amount of buffeting; working to get the shield adjusted better.

    Have to say that Madstadt Engineering did an excellent job on the precision of the components; all were easy to fit together. Easy to attach and de-attach; without the windshield, the mounts are barely visible.

    “Before their install, I suffered from the constant, unmitigated buffeting at speeds above 40 mph. Now I can hear the engine, and that's a sound I like!"

    “I have a stack of other windshields. I've bought over the years before I discovered the Madstad system, and none of them compare. Do yourself a favor and just buy the Madstad first!"

    “Long rides at freeway speeds were the worst because of the buffeting. I installed the 18" Madstad screen, keeping it at the lowest setting, and the buffeting is gone. I now have a nice quiet air flow around my head and upper torso, regardless of speed.”
