Cee Baileys's dark tint windshield help

I replaced the light tint Cee Baileys 19" sport screen with their 21" dark tint screen on my 2013 which I really like, but now the stone gray covers for the windshield mounts really stick out and I don't like the look at all.


So I will be painting them some darker color that will go good with the dark tint screen, or maybe find some nice looking vinyl material and wrap them, which might be the best way to go.

So does anyone with a 2015 with the liquid graphite paint have pictures of their bike with a dark tint Cee Baileys windscreen, so I can see how the liquid graphite paint looks against the windscreen.

Thanks.

Since it is YOUR bike you have to make yourself happy but IMO the contrasting colors of those covers against the dark screen looks good. Just a worthless opinion.


To answer your question about pics of the 2015 with a dark tint 21 inch Cee Bailey, what kind of idiot would have a setup like that? It would have to look like hammered goat turds.


But since you asked nicely, I believe this is the answer to your question:








And a few with the 19 inch Sport version in dark tint:








But whatever you do, do NOT do this. This is not a Good Look.

Like a complete amateur I dropped it into the gas pump just over 30 miles from my house on my way to SFO. I was only able to make the last night of SFO and that setback cost me almost two hours of riding time. I still managed to get home, install the OE shield, and make the ride from Prairieville LA to Clanton AL with time to spare. No Interstate either.

Now I think it's coming back to me. I remember reading something about swapping on your OEM shield. Could happen to anyone. Especially if there's loose footing. Which you usually don't find out about until a boot pops out from under you.

Thanks Redfish for the pictures, but needs to be darker.


I was already planning on either painting or wrapping the beak, front fender and side cowling covers, as I canít stand that dark bronze color. So I'm going to drop by a vinyl wrap place and see if I can find something in black that I can have all of those pieces wrapped in along with the windshield mount covers.

That is a possibility.

not meaning to sidetrack this thread, but have a question on the CB 19",
how does this compare to the stock or the National Cycle VStream Sport ??

looking to get more air i think, and smoother up air ??
i only got the bike last september, put about 6k miles on it before the season ended, so memory is a tic fuzzy. i thought it was warm in the heat, and i would have liked more air, and it was boomey up ?? 5'9 30"

thanks much for the time,
Joel

Not more air but better air. The CB 19" Sport Shield is about an inch taller and is wider at most points plus it has a "recurve" at the top.


I have run over 20K miles with the Sport and when I broke it I had to install the factory shield again. I hated it. I bought the 21" Cee Bailey and it is a fine shield. For winter.


FedEx delivered my second Cee Bailey Sport today and I already installed it. Actually looking forward to riding it to work in the morning.
