What do I need to know to buy the right motorcycle windshield?
If you want to place an order for a motorcycle windshield, here are some things you need to know in advance:
Material of the windshield:
Motorcycle windshields are typically made of materials such as acrylic and polycarbonate. Acrylic windshields are relatively inexpensive but not very durable and are prone to scratching. Polycarbonate windshields, on the other hand, are more durable and sturdy but also more expensive.
Color and transparency of the windshield:
Different colors and levels of transparency can provide different visual effects and experiences. For example, a transparent color can provide better visibility, but black is more effective at reducing glare and dazzling.
Installation method of the windshield:
There are three types of installation methods, one is specifically designed for certain types of vehicles, one is installed on the handlebars, and the last type is installed on the rearview mirror, depending entirely on your needs.
Thickness of the windshield:
Windshields come in high, medium, and low heights, and the thickness principle is that the higher the height, the thinner the thickness, which is considered in terms of the windshield's wind resistance. The common thickness range is between 2.5-4mm (excluding UTV windshields).
