  • Madstad Quick-Release Adjustable Windshield System for BMW R 18 (2020 & Up)

    --- Not compatible with Classic or Roctane Edition ---

    Transform your ride
    Madstad’s patented adjustable shield 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. Better still, this system is quickly detachable without tools so you can switch back and forth easily from touring shield to original cruiser. Add the lower deflector system and now you're in a pocket of calm you won't believe possible on that bike!

    What's included
    Our complete drop-in system requires no modification and includes everything needed to mount and position the shield: 

    • Center mount quick-release base bracket
    • Quick-detach adjustable windshield brackets
    • Touring windshield
    • All requires mounting hardware

    The touring shield is positioned in front of your instrument pod and the adjustable brackets allow you to set it for the most comfortable airflow depending on your particular height and riding position. Adjustability is critical for smooth comfortable wind protection while looking over the shield, not through it! All of our R 18 shields are about 20" wide at their widest point, as measured straight across the back. This is their finished width.

    You can detach the windshield in seconds (and without tools) if you prefer to go without. Only the minimal base bracket is left behind. Same thing goes for the lower deflectors; they snap on and off in seconds with just a minimal bracket left behind.

    NOTE: This system does NOT fit the Transcontinental (fairing) version of the R18.

    This item pairs well with our optional lower deflector system (order here), which includes the following:

    • Deflector mounting base
    • Quick-detach lower deflectors

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

    Riding is believing
    With the windshield separated from the bike 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. You can actually get better wind protection with our smaller adjustable shield and look over it rather than through it while comfortably enjoying an open view of the road, at any speed.

    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:

    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.

    Looks great!

    Easy to install. Puts wind over my helmet and removes chest pressure. Took a little bit find the right height and angle but once there is great.

    Impressed

    Replaced the OEM screen on my new Yamaha Super Tenere shortly after purchasing the bike. Went with the 22” screen with medium tint. It’s not cheap but custom made for my motorcycle.

    It’s approx 5” taller than the stock shield. Quality of the windshield and bracket is impressive. The bracket alone is a huge improvement over the finicky Yamaha bracket. I would faff about adjusting it, not the Madstad, super easy and fast to fine tune. The ability to adjust the angle and height of the windshield is great. I’m still tweaking it for my personal taste- not sure about looking through the screen, helmet buffeting is minimal and likely eliminated once I get the perfect degree of tilt.

    The Madstad is very quiet and I can ride at Hwy speeds with my face shield wide open even when the screen is not at the max height. Highly recommend.

    Madstad - 2023 Harley Fat Bob

    I recently installed a Madstad windshield on my 2023 Harley Fat Bob and so far, I couldn't be happier.

    The install was very easy, the windshield works great and is easy to remove.

    Good coverage go highway

    Originally got 18 dark. The 24 tinted gives more coverage & protection for highway travels. Seems a bit off symmetrically, brackets are not bent. In lowest position I still look over it, I’m 5’8”. This is my 4th MadStad.

    Replaced a very tall windshield on the Goldwing with the Madstad and have put about 400 miles down with it. The adjustability is excellent, lower it for 1up riding, pull it up for the Mrs. Still get a little wind but no buffering. I highly recommend it, follow the video for sizing. Great product.

    “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!"

    Johann Borenstein
    ★★★★★

    “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.”
