Kawasaki Vaquero 2011-up
Complete MadStad Adjustable Windshield System for your Kawasaki Vaquero 1700 (2011-up)
Transform your ride
There is simply no comparison in comfort. We separate the windshield from the fairing to eliminate buffeting and our patented mounting system allows riders to adjust the height and angle 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
- MadStad adjustable brackets
- The acrylic windshield (9 inch size shown in the photos)
Our acrylic base plate replaces the stock shield and our adjustable brackets bolt to this plate. With the shield separated from the front of the bike you can now adjust it for the optimum height, angle and airflow. This lets you set the shield for your particular height and riding position while pulling lots of air underneath it which is critical for smooth comfortable wind protection.
Size and Color
While the MadStad windshield systems are fully adjustable, we recommend starting with the appropriate shield size relative to rider height. These are general recommendations, see below on How To Measure for a more accurate gauge.
|RIDER HEIGHT||SHIELD SIZE|
|5'7" to 5'9" (170 - 175 cm)||9" (22 cm)|
|5'10" to 6'0" (178 - 183 cm)||11" (27 cm)|
|6'1" to 6'3" (185 - 191 cm)||15" (33 cm)|
|6'4" and taller (193+ cm)||15" (38 cm)|
HOW TO MEASURE: While sitting on the bike run a measuring tape up straight up from the ignition switch. Looking straight ahead, estimate where your chin/mouth level is on the tape then subtract 4 inches. For example, if your chin/mouth is at about the 15 inch level as for the rider in the photo, you would order our 11 inch windshield because that is where the top edge will be when our brackets are in the lowest position. You will be able to come up 2 inches from there. Our 13 inch shield will be at the 17 inch line on the tape and so on. Make sure you order a shield that is below your line of sight so that you will be able to look over the top of the shield.
All MadStad windshields are made from 3/16" (4.5 mm) thick cast acrylic and are available in four different colors. See photos bar for comparison image.
