    Default Looking for advice on small fairing or windshield for 82 GS1100E

    Looking for advice on small fairing or windshield for 82 GS1100E I wand something small that would take some of the wind off my chest. I like the look of the Wes Cooley but they don't list one for the 82 with the big 8" train light. I have a Vetter windjammer but it is just too big. I want one that is more sporty. Thanks for any recommendations

    National Cycle make lots of different sizes and styles. I don’t have one, but probably will in the future based on reviews on this site and elsewhere.

    I bought this generic one on eBay. It’s certainly worth the $21.99 price tag, but honestly doesn’t do all that much, gets the air a bit off the chest, higher into the shoulder area. I’ll get a taller one eventually.

    The big light makes it harder to find. I found this one on eBay about 7 years ago. Not sure if it is still there.

    Look for something that fits a Ducati Monster, that's how I found mine.

    After much surfing of eBay, I found these, which looks maybe to be the one? But no dimensions....and out of country.

    Rich posted a link to National Cycle, I'll go a step farther and narrow it down to the Street Shield EX.

    It's just a bit bigger than the one that Baatfam suggested and does a pretty good job of deflecting the blast without removing you from the experience.

    There is also the basic Street Shield, but the EX has a quick-detach feature, in case you want the FULL experience.

    LPMReplicaparts or MeadSpeed out of the UK might make an "S" replica with the 8" opening.

    There used to be be a guy in the States that made them but i could find anything about him so he may no longer be in the game.
    Went by National Fiberglass and did a lot of bodywork for WERA and AHRMA vintage racers.

    This looks like it is for an 8" headlight.

    They also make the Cooley replica fairing.

    When I die, just cremate me and put me in my GS tank. That way I can go through these carbs, one more time!

    Thanks for the recommendations I have decided on the Street Shield EX. I think it will give me the wind protection I am looking for and being removable is a big plus also

    If Photo*ucket is playing well, you can click on the link in my sig for my son's (now sold) '82 650GL and get a hint of how it might look.
