Measure from the center screw, up For all Batwing Fairing mounted shields (Street Glide, Ultra, Electra) These shields are measured from the center screw in the fairing, to the top of the windshield.

Ideally, you want to size the Taka shield so you are looking over it by 2-3 inches when it`s in the down position. That way, you`ll have the option of raising it up to look through if you felt you needed to, although most will never raise it again as the recurve works exceptionally well and pushes the wind up and over your and your passengers head.

Aerodynamics – Recurve: Long Ride Shields Windshields are formed using a special heat forming method to preserve the optical clarity of the material. As a part of the forming a Flip-up, or recurve, is formed at the top of the windshield which serves to deflect wind over the riders head. Materials: Currently, most LRS windshields are made from Impact Modified Acrylic.
Our ELITE series of windshields are made from Glass-Coated Polycarbonate material. Acrylic, Impact Modified Acrylic, and Polycarbonate Acrylic (Trade names Plexiglas and Lucite) is one of the most transparent (Clear) materials known. IMA has moderate scratch resistance because of its relative hardness and is an good choice for windshields. In its general-purpose form, polycarbonate is not a good material for windshields because it scratches easily and is UV susceptible.
When a mar-resistant (Glass) coating is applied to the outer surfaces, it becomes an excellent material for windshields. The cost of coated polycarbonate material, plus additional processing time drive up the price of this type of windshield.
