    I would like your opinions on this windshield for the Raider from anyone that is currently using it. Also if you have any good close up photo's I would appreciate them as well. Thanks in advance.

    I've got one on my 650 and love it, pop it on or off no fuss. I also like that I can get different styles of their glass and use the same brackets. If you want a shot of the hardware I can get you one, but like I said its a 650.

    I apreciate your honesty and I couldn't agree with you more. However for various health reasons I need the protection that a bigger windshield might provide and, as such, is the reason I am asking for the opinions of Raider owners that are using this windshield. I currently use the Yamaha 19" windshield and it is not getting the job done.Thanks anyway.

    This one will do the job. If not then let me know and I will pay for your trouble.

    I've got the 14" switchblade I think they call it. National Cycle makes a great product so even though I don't have the big one they make for wusses I'm sure you will like it. The hardware is top notch with a great nickel finish. When I got mine they didn't make hardware specifically for the Raider. The sales guy knew what he was talking about and got me the mounts for a Honda that fit perfectly. Another sign of a good company. Knowledgable sales people and great customer service.

    I'm looking to get a windshield for my Raider for freeway riding. What was the problem with the Yamaha 19"?

    To much wind noise and buffeting around the sides and bottom of the windshield. I now have the 2-up from National and I could not be happier. It is also better priced than the Yamaha windshield and mounting brackets.

    Did you look at Memphis Shades before you decided on the National? I'm thinking about the Fat 19".

    I looked at them but liked the 2-up better. Also the mounting brackets were, to me, a much cleaner set up. The 2-up is bigger that anything Memphis has to offer as I recall.

    yewanz1 - cna you post part numbers for the mount kit / windshield you have there? Planning a long road trip, think this might be just the ticket.

    Are you wanting the yamaha 19" windshield or the national cycle 2 up windshield?? Let me know which one and I will get you the info.

    The 2 up if you would please!
    Assuming that one offers the best protection.

    I will pull the invoice tonight when I get home from work. IT IS the best in my opinion. Of course I only had the yamaha 19" to compare it to. I also use the BUCKS LOWERS to help with the buffeting from under the windshield. The national makes a BIG difference in the buffeting and the lowers just make it better.

    Thanks much, appreciate it!
    I've got the Memphis Pop Top right now and it's not working for me, need something taller.
