Is it possible to put a Taka for a Goldwing on a F6b. I am interested in maximum protection for long touring.

Or can one install some other touring-friendly shield?

I bought a Taka yesterday for 50% off, using the Cupid50 code. Not sure it works today, but that was a great deal.

Word of caution about the Klockwerks flare windshield when you have risers.
The throttle linkage that comes off the right bar hits the windshield when turning left.
This is about 1 1/2" from full lock.
I sent the windshield back after showing them several photos.
It was determined that the cause was the risers.
It was also determined that this would happen on the 14" as well as the 16" (that I had installed)

I installed a Klock Werks 14" tinted flare no vent this winter and only have rode 100 miles here in Ohio so far and I just love it !! ... I'm only 5.8 but I do for the most part look over the shield. The 1st 20 feet of the road is through the shield but after that it's clear ridin'. I just measured and it is 14" from the base rubber to the top of the shield. The stock shield was noticeably higher. Not looking forward to it but when it rains will be much nicer not looking through a rained up spotted shield. Also, there's no wind hitting the head either. Love my Klock Werks and don't know why you wouldn't either.

"Love my Klock Werks and don't know why you wouldn't either."

Jim, I never said I didn't love the windshield.
This is what I stated in my original post as a warning.

"Word of caution about the Klockwerks flare windshield WHEN YOU HAVE RISERS."

The throttle linkage that comes off the right bar hits the windshield when turning left.

I have Rocky risers.
I have them adjusted so my hands are out wider than stock position.
The height increase and the handlebars being widened and the angle of the windshield causes the condition stated above.
It is not good when your handlebars or any part mounted on them hits the windshield.
Had I have turned left to make a slow turn around, such as in a driveway, my right handlebar would have not only hit, but possibly got caught behind the windshield.
I will not and can not give up my risers.
I have back issues, so the stock configuration made my back feel pinched between my shoulders.
This caused me to not be able to ride the distances that I can ride with the risers.

Stock = about 250 miles of pain.
Risers = up to 600 almost totally pain free miles.
This is 1 day turn around rides by the way.

srt8-in-largo is selling two F6B windscreens over on Cruiseman's forum.
I can't post a link to another forum, as it's not allowed.

Here's a copy/paste:

17. Windshield: Clearview
- MSRP $195
- Size:LARGE, Color: DARK GRAY, Width: SPORT TOUR w/ UPPER RECURVE, no vent

18. Windshield: Madstad
- MSRP $195
- Size:11 inch, Color: DARK GRAY

He's asking half of MSRP.
He's also selling a ton of other stuff, as he traded his F6B on a BMW K1600GTL.
His stuff is immaculate, as I've seen it.
Good guy to deal with.

2013 F6B, black, with ABS
If it ain't broke, try to fix it anyways

I have always had windscreens I can look over like the standard F6B screen
Suppose I know why Dogs put their heads out of windows
But on the bike their is an sdjustable one that came with the bike that never goes up
But then again if I wanted the wind and the elements off me I'd sell the bike and get a car
