So having never installed anything like this before... how difficult is the install?  I am guessing it isn't too tough since a lot of folks here seem to have done it in 15 minutes or so.  Are there any tricks or things to look out for?

I am thinking about purchasing and installing this one from HD...

I've just received and tested the Windvest windshield 14" on my Springer.

The windshield is pretty small, I've tested it up to 100 mph and it makes the job. I'm 5'92, the height is ok and allows me the see above the windshield, the width might have been a bit more wide to better deflect wind around shoulders.

One drawback comparing to HD windshields are the handlebar clamps. The windshield is bolted (Allen bolts) on clamps and this do not allow a quick release without the Allen tool.

The overall look is great in the sens that it is very discreet and integrates pretty well with bike. I appreciate that there is no metal bar across the windshield.

Here are some pics below

To Leeinmemphis:

Hello Lee,

Have you experienced a problem with the springers hitting hardly the support bar of the WindVest windshield when riding on bumps/potholes?

My has been mounted accordingly to the manual and very often the springers hit the bar and damage it, as well as upper springers bolts.

Please let me know

TIA   Laurent

by looking at the pic you need to reverse the clamps on the bars and it won't hit the spring any more. I did the same thing. Take care.

Hi Lee,

Thanks for your PM and answer here. I'll do that, nevertheless is it just stupid from WindVest to not clearly specify that in the mount notice.
