 Post subject: Morphous Windshields
PostPosted: Tue Oct 28, 2014 5:55 pm 
I just took a look at the windshield that I removed from my Morphous this morning (I returned the stock one) and it's a Cee Bailey, but only 21" tall as opposed to the 26" & 28" heights they offer now.
Don't know what to do with it, but I was wondering if anyone here ever tried cutting or reshaping windshields ?
I was thinking of using the string method of finding the bottom center of the shield and adjusting the length of the string, with a marker or scribe at the end, which would give you a symetrical arc, once you found the height that suited you.
What I don't know is what might be a good method to cut the shape without cracking the sheild.
Hell, if a Dremel cut off wheel would do the trick, you could tie the cord the the Dremel tool (theres a loop there) and cut it directly.

I bought mine at 7Jurock and they wound up resizing it for me....they were able to trim it down (I'm not sure what method they used) but yeah, it can be done...hell, at this point it's a freebie anyway, so play with it!

From what I see, I think the problem with the Morphous' windshield, besides being way too short, is the mounting angle.
I'm thinking that if I can find some rubber like material that is wedge shaped, cut a couple strips and make ovalized mounting holes, to adjust for the change in the screw's angle, then mabe that 21" windsheild just might work. (though it'd still be ugly)...........just a thought.

I too have the Jurock and while its a tall ugly beast, it does work.
The OE shield is a joke and really doesn't do a thing.
As seen in this pic, the Jurock ,while being taller, does curve away from the rider.

Like I said before, that Cee Baily was still too short and created louder wind noise than the stock one.
I think I may just try wearing a full face, because it's just the noise and the fear of getting clocked big time by UFO's that worries me.
Oh and Google was my friend and showed a few different videos on cutting down windshields, with nothing more than a cordless sabre saw, sanding paper and lots of painters tape.

I used to have a 26" windscreen and loved it during the winter months, but found that when going faster than 60mph it acted as a sail and would pull me one way or another....I wound up using a 22" screen that covers my body and leaves my head exposed, but I enjoy it more at speeds....just my 2 cents.... :highfive:

I wonder if anyone ever tried attatching one of those Tombstone mini shields on their Morphous ?

I like that shield too. But wonder how he gets away with not having the cutouts for the handlebars. I have the Cee Bailey 28" and it is still too short for me. I'm 6'2" and the wind hits me middle of the face. But I don't think I would want one any taller, too much flex. That screen looks like it came off an old Helix.

Maybe he just doesn't take any corners...........So, I just got back from the ladie's house that sold me my Morphous.
She'd offered me a brand new helmet with a full face shield that flipped forward for 50 bucks extra, but I declined buying it then.
Well, after riding in 38 degree temps this morning with that stock windshiled, I called and went over to get it.
She ended up giving it to me.
I wore it home and the difference was night and day from my ride over there !
I'm no longer looking for a windshield.

At 6'3" the 28" CeeBailys was too short. I've taken the stock shorty and mounted the CeeBaileys to it 4" higher and it's perfect!! It looks bad but works great! Now I know I need something aprox 4" taller. The one linked above is made here in Florida by Gustafsson Plastics.(st Augustine I think). I'm gonna try it next.

I mounted a 28" CeeBailey on my 2008 Morf and it doesn't quite do the job --- still a bit too short.
Please keep us posted (with pictures as well?) on how you modify, or change, the heighth of your windshield. I'm definitely interested in modifying mine as well.
Thanks,
Fred

Just know that wind CAN yank those tall windscreens off at speeds....look at ur mounting point....its nothing more than a piece of rubber wedged into a plastic slot....if these windscreens were mounted to a metal frame it'd be different....
