    National Cycle Switchblade with the fork mounts. You have to call them to get it 'cuz they aren't on the Raider section yet. It looks great on the bike, and I got nothing but compliments from everyone who saw it. Sorry I can't post a pic, the dealer still hasn't got the part for my oil leak yet. I'm beginning to feel like Ohiomike with his skins.

    If you go here, it's the 4th and 5th pictures down. The Switchblade Deflector. In the picture at the top of the screen, it's the shortest one...the top and bottom bike on the left.

    thanks, but not really the picture i am looking for, i would really like to see what it does to the look of the bike overall. (just a little visually challenged)

    Like I said earlier, I am supposed (we'll see) to get my bike back tomorrow. I'll take some pictures and post them for you.

    If you are looking for a small windshield that takes the wind off your chest but has a small profile and allows you lots of room to see "over the top", the Deflector" is your choice. I installed mine ( in 10 minutes) and it looks great, and the rake adjust allows you to get rid of any turbulence that might bounce your head around at high speeds.

    I had originally ordered the Yamaha quick release tall windshield......really glad I changed my mind (I don't like windshields generally)...and save $300 in the process.

    On a Raider, smaller is better when it comes to windshields.

    Thanks, that is a good picture. I guess it don't look that bad, and would be good for a long ride. Doc, i would still love to see yours after you get it on, since i also have the RED Raider.

    Maybe these pictures will help. I wished the mount did not attach to the handle bars. But that is the only mounting for the National Deflector shield.

    I thought they were going to change your name to butt-punch? Anyway, National Cycle makes a Raider fork mount for the Switchblade Deflector. It's just not on the Raider section. You have to call them and they will hook you up. And the shield is a little different shape than what you and Raider58 have and has chrome tabs.
    Surprise, surprise, surprise (best said in Gomer Pyle voice especially since I live in NC) I didn't get my bike back today. They "promised" tomorrow.

    "Punch Butt" was someone else's dream. Not gonna happen here. Although I do think I got it shoved in pretty hard!

    It's already on. I've had it for about a month. Problem is, I haven't had the bike for two of the four weeks. So freakin frustrated right now I could scream. Dealer blew me off again claiming tomorrow it will be done. This guy is just a fucking ass hole. I just hate it when people think if they lie to you that is somehow better. If you can't get it done, don't tell me you can and then not do it. Tell me the truth, I might be pissed at first but I get more pissed when they promise it (for the third fucking time) and then don't deliver.
