I kept it and I'm going to use my heat gun to modify the shape to my liking. Think I'm going to add a upward slope to the top lip of it, similiar to the OEM and see how it fairs.
I would be very interested to hear more about this when you give it a go. I was thinking about trying the exact same thing.

CalSci sent me the wrong color and their excuse was "we only sell like 4 clear screens a year" as the reason for the mixup. ****ty business attitude about them. And insisted that I give it a shot anyway in case I liked it more. I should have just gotten a refund.
Just got my windshield from them today (clear) missing some of the parts to install. I called and the guy didn't sound too friendly. Said he'd call me back in 15 minutes. That was over an hour ago! Too bad since i got this windshield in 2 days!

Anyone installed the OEM wind screen on their R? Did it make a significant difference or just direct the wind from body to helmet and cause buffeting? And did you think it "ruined" the naked look of the bike?
I'm 5 11 or 6', depending who's asking:), and trying to figure out whether it's worth it or not.

I saw the post for the bigger wind screens from other manufacturers, but I don't want to change the look of the bike. For long rides I have my Indian with the wind "sail" on it.

Thank you.
I have an '18 Rocket 3 Roadster- I finally found a windscreen & fitting kit.... with the few settings- I have the windscreen as low & as far back (towards handlebars) & have buffeting issues- they say lower air deflectors will cure it but parts are OBSOLETE (3 year old bike)- just emailed Triumph Corp for help
