small windscreen-What have you done? '76CB750F
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:58:57 pm »
I removed my Windjammer fairing so now I'm searching for a small handlebar mount (or?) windscreen. I like the look of the Puig naked bike screen but I don't think it will mount on my '76 CB750F.
What have you all come up with? I don't want the Police Bike look-I want something sportier...pictures would be great-Thanks!

I have a small faring that I picked up cheap at a swap meet. It was intended for a Harley, so I had to enlarge the hole for the headlight. It is small enough to leave on all the time but it still keeps the wind off my chest when on the highway. I installed it before my 1200 mile trip earlier this summer and was really happy with how it worked.

i don't recall the brand off the top of my head, I will try and find the markings when I get home tonight.

Edit: this is the one I have https://www.jpcycles.com/product/212-985/memphis-shades-cafe-fairing?v=2 except I paid $25 for it.

That looks good. I like it on your Honda more than I like the look on the Hotleys....

 Unlike Danny I did not like having a bar mounted windshield. This one in the picture came with a low miles 750F that I bought. It created a very annoying wind turbulence around my helmet and head and being that it was mounted to the handlebars made the front end twitch badly and screwed up the handling. Took it off and was a happy camper. Still packed away somewhere.

I just ordered a SlipStreamer Spitfire (less than $50 shipped-amazon). We'll see how it does.  I have a short Puig windscreen on my BMWGS and when I first installed it I had bad helmet turbulence.
I trimmed it little by little and would then test ride. Finally found the perfect height that kept wind off and no turbulence. I'll try that with my Honda. I hope it doesn't effect handling on the Honda. It doesn't on my BMW....

 As you can see in the pic that National brand that was mounted to my F was not aerodynamic in any way.Pushed a lot of air right into the handlebars.  So much for ever trying to sell that rig here on the forum  ;D

Hey Danny,
I like the looks of your fairing. Nice profile and side view. But does it knock down the head turbulence?
I mounted an old but decent Wixom batwing type and modded someone’s old windscreen to it, but it rattles my head too much below 60 mph.
