I'm interested in getting a windscreen for my CTX 700 N. Any recommendations and warnings will be appreciated.
Madstad bracket an one of their screens will give a wide range of angle and height adjustments. I've had them on last three bikes.I'm interested in getting a windscreen for my CTX 700 N. Any recommendations and warnings will be appreciated.
Plus one on what you said about the Madstad windshield and lowers. GREAT windshield that protects you in cold and rain and can be tilted into an air scoop on hot days!I also have a Madstad. It makes a big difference at highway speeds. You have to play around with the angles to get the best results. And it tightens in position with knurled screws (if that's the right term, not hex head or something you tighten with a wrench). When I first put it on my bike, after about an hour I noticed the mounting screws were coming loose while riding in traffic on a road with no shoulder. Had a bad few minutes watching the screws vibrate loose and the road until I could park and tighten them up. Others here have replaced those with stainless steel hex head screws. Also, before you ask, I have the Madstad lowers and they didn't seem to make much of a difference. Although they do keep some rocks off my legs.
Call Madstad directly, it will save you time and you’ll get the correct information.Hello,
I just recently purchased a CTX and it does not have a windshield and want to purchase one. Can you tell me exactly which Madstad one you're referring to. Also, I am about 5 feet 6 inches tall. Any advice regarding which size I will need? I've been told that it's best to be able to see over the windshield rather than looking through it, so I'd like it sized so I can see over it. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
