  • Quick-Release Adjustable Windshield Upgrade
    for the MadStad Thunderbird Storm System (2011 - Up)

    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 naked bike.

    What's included in the kit
    This is an UPGRADE KIT ONLY! You must already have the MadStad fork-mount brackets kit installed as this kit DOES NOT include the quick-release mounting system. What this kit does include are the:

    • Quick-detach adjustable windshield brackets
    • Touring windshield

    Additional optional components (if you don't already have them):

    • Quick-detach lower deflectors (create a smoother ride)
    • Quick-detach fly screen (short dark sport screen)

    The touring shield is positioned in front of your instrument cluster 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!

    Removing or attaching the windshield simply takes a flip of two locking tabs then the brackets with shield slide right up off of the forks. Only a small bracket on each side is left behind (see photos). NOTE: Some photos are from the Rocket III however the same components are used on the Storm. Some photos show the optional lower deflectors.

    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
    5'8" to 5'11" (173 - 180 cm) 18" (45 cm)
    6'0" to 6'2" (183 - 188 cm) 20" (50 cm)
    6'3" and taller (190+ cm) 22" (55 cm)


    HOW TO MEASURE: Sit on the bike in riding position and run a tape measure straight up from the center of the handlebar. As you look straight ahead, estimate where your chin level is then add 7" to determine the most likely windshield size. For example, if your chin level is at about the 11" mark on the tape measure then the 18" shield would be the recommended size. Our adjustable brackets will give you another 2 inches to bring it up higher if necessary but we want to make sure you are starting out looking over the top of the shield. Alternately you could measure up and back from the top of the headlight (hold the tape at about the same angle as the forks) to find about where your chin level is, then subtract an inch. For example if your chin level looks to be at about 19" then the 18" shield is what you would need.  

    All MadStad windshields are made from 3/16"" (4.5 mm) thick cast acrylic and are available in four different tint colors. See photos bar for comparison image.

    “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.”
