Honda Gold Wing GL1800 (2001 - 2017) - Adjustable Windshield System
MadStad Adjustable Windshield System for your Honda Gold Wing GL1800 (2001 - 2017)
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.
What's included in the kit
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
- The acrylic windshield
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!
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!
Size and Color
While the MadStad windshield systems are fully adjustable, we recommend starting with the appropriate shield size relative to rider height.
|RIDER HEIGHT||SHIELD SIZE|
|5'7" to 5'9" (170 - 175 cm)||12" (300 mm)|
|5'10" to 6'0" (178 - 183 cm)||14" (350 mm)|
|6'1" and taller (185+ cm)||16" (400 mm)|
These are general recommendations and can vary depending on your inseam, seat height and riding position. We can also accommodate extra short or tall riders by special request.
HOW TO MEASURE: While sitting on the bike have someone else run a measuring tape up (12", 14", 16") from the bottom of the fairing/shield rubber strip. Keep the angle the same as stock or use the forks for reference. Choose whichever size aligns closest with your chin/lip level. Make sure you are keeping horizontal from your chin/lip when intersecting the measuring tape. A yard stick or level is recommended.
All MadStad windshields are made from 3/16" (4.5 mm) thick cast acrylic and are available in six different tint colors. See photos bar for comparison image.
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. Russell S. (Facebook Post)
