National Cycle VStream Tall Touring Windscreen Kawasaki Concours 14 2008-2014
If you plan on doing any touring on the concourse 14 you NEED this windshield. Night and day difference from the poorly designed stock shield. I am about 5"11 and in an upright seating position with the shield all the way up going highway speeds I can lift my visor up and be comfortable. Super quiet, at highest point you can be completely wind blocked and is amazing for longer rides. Great for passenger riding too. If all you do is ride in the city I'm not sure why you have this bike, but you may not want it. at its lowest position is doesn't give as much air flow as the stock shield, but still gives some. that's my 2 cents. Highly recommended for an interstate or highway long rides!!

Much quieter wind noise than stock.
Installation was a cinch. It really improves the looks and makes the ride much quieter.

Quality Replacement Windshield
I am 6'2" tall and my Motorcycle is a 2012 Kawasaki Concours , and this windshield is approx 4" taller and wider at top than the stock windshield, Blocks the wind better than original with less buffeting and is much quieter with only having to be raised half way up. The plastic polycarbonite is clearer and feels more ductile and doesn't flex any more than original. Would buy again.

My Concours is so much more enjoyable to ride now that I've installed the new windscreen. No more deafening wind noise. I can even wear an open face helmet now, which was impossible with the original screen.

Much better than stock windscreen
Fitted on 2013' Kawasaki Concours. I am 5' 9" 185. I have a russell day long seat and this screen is perfect. It allows for clean air around my helmet in the lowered position and gives plenty of protection in the fully raised position. I occasionally put stock seat on and the screen is even better when fully raised, however, doesnt allow much air in the fully lowered position.

Great improvement over OEM windshield
I bought the VStream after much researching and debating on how it would look on my 2010 Concourse. After installing it and taking a test ride I love it. I'm 6' 2" and the stock screen hit me mid-face level at full height resulting in a lot of wind noise and buffeting. I rode like this since buying the bike in July, 2010...what a mistake. The VStream is taller and creates a quiet environment at highway speeds. The noise is greatly reduced and I don't need to wear ear plugs anymore. I balked at the price but the quality is high and the performance is great. Overall, it's worth the money and is a great improvement for those over six feet tall. Now that it's on my bike I think the VStream looks good. It's a classy upgrade that performs.

This windscreen is a must for the Concours ....
What a fantastic difference the Vstream Windscreen has made. The air flow from my Concours was either blasting me in the chest or, with the stock shield raised, slamming me in the top of my head (I'm 6' tall). Even in the top most raised position, the stock shield was really bad on interstate rides (65-70 m.p.h., honest), and the noise was deafening. After installing the Vstream, the lowered position hits me at about the neck, and wind is nowhere to be found in the raised position. In other words, it is perfect--and perfectly quiet. The Vstream also is much thicker than the stock screen, and, if the advertisements are to be believed, much safer when hit by road debris, etc. Not that I've gotten to test that feature, because most bugs are sucked off to the side or over the top, keeping the screen cleaner ...

best kept secret... A must for every Concours
I installed mine last saturday, on time for a foliage ride.
What a difference ! I'm 6' and this shield is about my nose height. Before, my parters would ask me to close my helmet face shield, way too much noise on the intercom... no more, the Sena is dead quiet. I didn't have to use ear plugs for this ride. I could even ride with my face shield open.
I always carry a micro fiber wet rag & some plexus for my face shield. Forgot to use it: no bugs splattered this time.
Way to go, V Stream: keep on the good work !
