Clearview T100/120 Long Haul Screen

Hi!

I just received my new T100 long haul screen from Clearview Shields. This is the second one I received, with the first being a prototype. I posted about it in another thread, but I thought this one deserved a new thread.

The screen replaces the stock long haul screen, but uses the Triumph brackets. It takes about five minutes to install. I'm happy with how it looks, but I'll have to report back with more detailed results from riding. I took it for a short ride this morning, and it seems to block the wind very well. There was a tiny bit of vibration in my helmet about 65 or so, but I think my pullback risers may be contributing to that issue. If I lean forward slightly, there is no vibration whatsoever. I'm 5'6", and the risers help a lot, but it may be a problem for the aerodynamics of the windshield.

I don't see this listed on their site yet, but I was dealing directly with Craig at Clearview Shields. He was very helpful throughout the whole process.

They're selling a 13.5" and a 15" version of this windshield. The one in the pictures is the shorter one.

Thanks!

That looks great. I ordered one from Clearview as part of the focus group. It should be here on Friday. Im currently running the long haul with an mra x-creen.

How did it fit when mounting? I received mine and was less than impressed with the mounting. The lower holes were over an inch off. While the shield could be forced on by bending and pushing, it wasnt what I was hoping for when I paid $170. I was planning on switching between the long haul and Clearview with the seasons and wanted a shield that was easily switchable without stressing the shield and grommets. I did however, think the shield size was good and it looked fairly good for such a large shield on a small bike. Im not sure whether to keep the shield or send it back and wait for the revised version.

I found the install fiddly with the plastic wrap on the screen. It really interfered with the rubber grommets. The plastic prevented them from seating properly when I pushed the upper bracket ends through the grommets. I did the test ride anyway and unwrapped the screen afterward. I then rubbed the upper bracket ends with a shop rag that I sprayed with a small amount of WD40. The screen mounted a lot easier with some bending of the screen and some pulling of the upper brackets. (I secured the upper bracket first -- right then left -- before I bolted down the lower bracket.) I probably didn't need the WD40; the plastic wrap was the real culprit. If you can mount it at all with the plastic on, the screen should fit fine when unwrapped.

I thought about occasionally switching out the Clearview screen with the OEM screen as well but I don't think I want to be bothered with transferring the grommets and the metal inserts between the two screens. I also prefer the look of the Clearview screen.

My 18.11 in. recurved Clearview windshield for my Triumph Bonneville T120 has arrived in Crete. Mounting it on the OEM Longhaul bracket took 15 minutes. It snapped in place just perfectly. I’m 5.68 ft tall; it arrives at my lips’ level. Material is sturdy, 0.2 in. thick. Today I made a 65 mi. ride with it. At 70 – 75 mph I had less wind on the breast and on the helmet than at 50 – 55mph. I also have pullback risers. I’m very pleased and I like the looks of it very much.

Some say the lower holes were one inch off; some other that they had to bend the bracket or push the screen. When the shield arrives, it’s wrapped in a plastic sheet with a warning written on it: please check that this windshield, size and color, corresponds to your order before unwrapping it. Once you’ve checked, take the plastic sheet off; remove the rubber grommets of the old shield and put them on the new one. Align the upper holes one at the time and loosely tighten the bolts; then align one lower hole and tighten loosely, end with the second. The “one inch off” is because the shield is curved and must be pushed slightly into place, not because it’s badly made. Tighten with a short Allen key without exaggeration.

Clearview sells 13 and 14.5 in. shields, not 13.5 and 15. Total height of the 14.5 = 18.11 in.

I am 5’9”, and I got the 14.5” screen last summer. It’s about nose level. The holes were much less tha 1” off and the screen went on easily. It gives excellent protection in front but I experience considerable buffeting from the back and sides. Maybe because the bike is too narrow for the shield. Perhaps a version with louvers would equalize the pressure and eliminate this.

For what it's worth, I completely abandoned the use of my Clearview long haul screen. I purchased a 13 and a 14.5, but there was significant buffeting with both screens. I decided I was better off with no screen at all.

If anyone is interested in a hell of a deal on a couple of windscreens and the hardware, send me a message.

It just ruins the look of the bike. Maybe if I was going cross country... maybe.

Can't argue with that. I think that's true of anything larger than a flyscreen on these bikes. I put mine on in the fall and take it off in the spring.

Clearview windshield, Pazzo levers, JW Speaker Evo 2 LED headlamp, Booster Plug, Triumph LED indicators, 4 bar tank badges, chrome throttle body, clutch and inspection covers.
