National Cycle VStream Tall Touring Windscreen for Concours 14 2008-2011
Extended My Riding Season
I love this for winter. It's amazing how much more enjoyable cool weather riding is.
I'm 6'4" and all the way up gets me almost all out of the wind. It was noisy when I wore a Joe Rocket RKT 201 but with a Nolan N90 very quiet.

Looks great,that's about it.
Looks awesome on my Kawasaki Concours 14. But the buffeting is worse than with the stock shield. When the shield is fully up it provides reasonable protection, but the back pressure is uncomfortably high. I rode with it for a week and took it off. I didn't try to return it cause i used it for the week. I'll sell it myself.
BTW. Revzilla was great. Good price compared to others and quick service.

should be factory item
I have ridden with this new screen almost 1500 miles and it was a great purchase. It allows you to reduce wind noise, deflect even heavy rain and you can control your temp on hot or cold days way better than stock unit. Yes it does flex a bit in cross winds and passing 18 wheelers but it is stiff enough above 120mph so not a big deal. Really great deal, I would have put it on my 2012 Connie day one if I knew it worked so well.

Perfect Shield for me.
I bought the V-stream for a 2012 Concours that had a Cal-Sci Large/wide windshield on it. I found the Cal-Sci to be a bit bulky and awkward looking, and it blocked pretty much all of the air, a bit too much for my taste. I bought a stock windshield, and also the V-stream to try. The stock windshield still allowed a lot of wind and buffeting around it, so I installed the V-stream. It is the perfect combo for me. It still allows enough airflow to cool you off, but blocks very well while looking great. At 5'9" I don't even have to raise it fully to sit up straight. It is tall enough for a 6 footer, and wide enough to block unwanted wind, although these are matters of personal preference. It does allow more wind to hit the handgrip area than the Cal/Sci wide, but that's what heated grips are for. Fit & finish is nice, but I can't speak for durability as I just installed it. I suspect it will hold up as well as any other screen, so durability will be fine.

Overall a very good choice for Concours C14
My first long ride yielded results as advertised for the vortex created. A friend and I on identical bikes swapped back and forth to compare his Clearview with my V-Stream.
His provided less helmet buffeting at a lower setting, but mine provided that advantage as well as keeping my arms in a quiet pocket of air. This became obvious when it starteted to rain and my arms stayed dry. My hope is that this pocket of air will benefit my wife on the passenger seat.
The blogs noted the -Stream flexed more than other brands, but that didn't seem to be an issue at all, on a pretty windy March day in New England.
Very happy so far.

I bought this windscreen (WS) a few days ago and...brother ...what a difference it makes. The stock WS for my '09 Connie left me bobble headed and fatigued on most longer rides. At 6'3"...The old WS could not take care of my needs. This new WS is beautiful and looks to be very durable. At the tallest setting, I can actually hear the engine noise over the very gentle buffeting. Awesome... I highly recommend it to anyone with height issues....RP

A must for us taller gentleman
The stock windshield at the tallest setting caused major buffeting. This shield leaves me with windshield to spare. At 6 feet tall the ride is smooth and comfortable. No buffeting at all, on head or shoulders! My wife on the back is happy too!
