This is a GL1800 V-Stream Windshield made by National Cycle and available either with a vent opening or without a vent opening. These windshields do not include a vent except for the Special Edition which includes an installed vent. Stock GL1800s from 2001-2003 did not come with a vent. If you want to use the VStream windshield with the vent opening, you will need to order a replacement vent, part number 45-1252N from us or use the original factory vent from a 2004-2017 windshield.
National Cycle's VStream® is revolutionizing motorcycle windscreen performance! While other manufacturers offer taller screens or air spoiler tops, National Cycle designed, for the first time ever, a windscreen with airflow calculated and adjusted to quiet and comfort the rider's environment. The typical airflow pattern of the wake from most windscreens is called a van Karman vortex. At speeds of 50-90 mph, the air swirls off the windscreen in an approximate 90-degree segment of rotation, hits the bottom of the rider's neck on the way up, and curves off the shoulder at approximately 45 degrees.We gave the VStream its name for the shape it takes at the upper edge. The patented “V” shape is so quiet because it pushes this vortex out and away from the side of the rider's head. The rider’s helmet then resides in still air, and the passenger's environment is greatly improved as well. VStream windscreens deliver unprecedented durability and optical clarity through the use of 4.5-6.0mm thick Lexan® polycarbonate with FMR hardcoating or our exclusive Quantum™ hardcoating. Nothing else comes close to matching the impact strength of polycarbonate, making it the ideal material for motorcycle windscreens. It is 10X stronger than H.I.A. and 20X more impact resistant than acrylic plastic (Lucite®). They are also 30X more scratch resistance than typical acrylic windscreens. Quantum even has 10X better scratch resistance than the FMR hardcoating used by most manufacturers!
STRENGTH - OPTICS - COMFORT: The new VStream for the GL1800 features 4.5mm (33% thicker than stock) Lexan® polycarbonate for outstanding optics and impact strength. The VStream's larger size and 2.5" setback create a quiet and comfortable ride you're sure to appreciate. It is DOT approved and covered by National Cycle's 3-YEAR UNBREAKABLE WARRANTY! It uses existing mounting hardware and OEM vent for a direct replacement. Retains full use of original windshield height adjustment.
The already popular VStream windscreen has been elevated to an even higher level! Introducing the new VStream® Special Edition for Gold Wing® riders! Photos cannot capture the comfort level and touring pleasure you'll enjoy with this windscreen.
For rock-solid stability at all speeds, we made the Special Edition from 6.0mm thick polycarbonate to reduce vibration and flex common with thinner windshields.
The VStream Special Edition is Quantum® Hardcoated for unbeatable scratch resistance, like our other Gold Wing windscreens. But the Special Edition also has our exclusive RainZip® treatment pre-applied! When riding in the rain, water will quickly bead up and simply blow away. RainZip makes rainy rides a lot sunnier!
This V-Stream Windshield will fit all GL1800s from 2001-2017. The 2001-2005 Goldwing shields use a 5-point mounting system. 2006-2017 Goldwing shields use a 3-point mounting system. This shield is set up with 5-point mounting to fit both 2001-2005 and 2006-2017 bikes. On the 2006-2017 GL1800s, only the one middle and two outer mounting points will be used. 55-2147, 55-2146, 55-2153
