Windbender HP

Windbender HP Performance - High Performance Motorcycle Windshields!

Motorcycle Windshields for Honda GL1800, F6B, GL1500, and Harley Davidson FL (1993-2013)

"It's like having an Invisible Windshield"

The Windbender HP is a high performance windshield that is the heart and driving force of our development. Not only did we want to eliminate the wind issue for the rider and co-rider, we wanted to be able to see over it like it wasn't even there. Due to the shape of this windshield, there is some distortion while looking through its upper edge, but, remember, we want to look over it.

The Windbender HP comes in three sizes for the GL1800 and F6B, two for the GL1500. The GL1800 HP11 (11") is generally for riders less then about 6' tall. The HP15 will do for most riders over 6', and an HP18 (18") is available for the very tall. Any HP will have to be 6" below your eyeballs to get enough breeze to clear rain from a waxed faceshield. 2" below the eyeball is as tall as most riders will ever need. Choose your size accordingly. HP Sizes for the GL1500 are 17" and 14" for the HP and HPS respectively. We ask you to read our sizing instructions below to determine the correct size for you. While we hope you get the right shield the first time, don't worry if it's not quite right; our exchange policy is superior! If you will ever need to look through your shield (tall passengers, personal preference) please consider an ST model.

The HP11 and HP15 (11", 15") are available in both clear and in a medium bronze tint. The bronze tint is not so dark that you can't see through it at night, but you'll be looking over it anyway, right? The HP11 is also available in a dark smoke tint that matches the Windbender base. The dark tint is for appearance only. You won't be able to see through it at night, but you'll be looking well over the top of it. The HP18 is only available in clear.

All of our top shields for the GL1800 are available for the F6B and can be interchanged between the two motorcycles . . . without tools . . . in both manual and electric adjust modes. The HP and ST sizing instructions apply to all of the motorcycles we offer shields for.

HP Sizing Instructions

Although all Windbenders retain the stock Goldwing windshield height adjustment, we prefer to leave the base in it's lowest position for the best wind protection. Additionally, the Windbender top shield adjustment is designed to be much easier to use than the stock adjustment. However, you may certainly choose to adjust the base unit to find optimal top shield adjustments for your riding style and desires. The base unit may be moved at any time, but it is much easier to set-it and forget-it.

It is IMPORTANT that you can adjust the HP15 so that your eyeballs are 4 inches or more above the top of the shield when it is in its lowest position. Eye-rattling can occur with the HP18 if it is too tall for you (you won't like looking through it anyway - the recurve is not optically clear).

Our shield numbers are the measurement from the top of the windshield garnish to the top of the top shield in its lowest position.

To find this position:

Line of Sight MeasurementHave a piece of tape in your hand and sit on your bike in your all-day slumped riding position (preferably on the side stand, or with both feet on the ground). Put that piece of tape on your windshield straight out from your eyeballs to mark your line-of-sight. Remove yourself from the bike and measure the distance along the front of your windshield from the top of the windshield garnish gasket to the mark you made for your line-of-sight. You should order an HP that is at least 4" shorter than that measurement. Six inches less than that measurement will give you even more capability to see well over the top of your shield.

Either Windbender HP windshield has up to12" of air lift above the top of the windshield (depending on your speed). We recommend adjusting the windshield so that when seated on the bike, the top of the Windbender is can be set no less than 4" below your line-of-sight (about the height of your chin). With this as your starting point, you can move it up for riding down the interstate or down to get a breeze in your face or for riding twisty roads and in low visibility conditions (either HP will need to be 6" below your eyes to get just enough breeze to clear rain from a waxed faceshield). When adjusted for interstate riding, the wind will be moving over the top of the rider's helmet by a few inches. This is important to the co-rider, because of their elevated sitting position they are going to want the wind at least above the face opening in their helmet. For this windshield to work as well for the co-rider as the rider, they have to be somewhat matched. For example, if the rider is very short in the body, and the co-rider is very tall through the body, along with the added height in the passenger seat, it may place them high enough in the wind stream that they will get some wind in their face. Even though the buffeting will be reduced, the Windbender ST may be a better choice since it can be raised higher for the passenger and doesn't have the distortion to look through for the driver.

Windbender HP Sizes - Top Shield Height. This is the minimum installed windshield height GL1800 / F6B GL1500
Windbender HP15/HP 15" 17"
Windbender HP11/HPS 11" 14"

Individual Windbender components are available for additional shields, replacements, spares and custom applications.

ATTEMPING TO MOVE YOUR TOP SHIELD WHILE RIDING IS NOT RECOMMENDED! Even though you may be able to do it with the spring loaded pin sets, the top shield could slip out of your hands and you might lose control of your motorcycle or do damage to another vehicle. If you want to move your shield while underway, order the electric option! and move your shield with the touch of a switch.

There is no reason to settle for second best. Don't push the wind when you can bend it! Windbender, high performance windshields by Firecreek.

If your solo riding style requires you to look over the shield and your two-up riding requires even greater wind protection, you may want to get our Windbender ST as a second top windshield (without the base). Slide one off and slide the other on. It takes only seconds and no tools are needed.

We want you to experience the benefits of the Windbender. If, during consulting with you, we suggest an HP or HP-S shield for you and it doesn't work well, we will gladly swap top shields with you for the price of shipping and the difference in price if you return your shield in "as-new" condition. Send it back to us dirty or scratched and there will be a $50 polishing fee. If you order a shield without consulting and want to exchange it, the same policy applies.

Our Exchange/Return Policy is second to none: Don't like the Top Shield version you first bought? Send it back; pay only a $50.00 restocking fee and we'll send you a larger shield for the difference in price. If your shield is too large: send it back, pay only a $50.00 restocking fee and we'll deduct the difference in price on your replacement. All Top Shield returns must be made in "AS NEW" condition or a $50 cleaning/polishing fee will apply. No refunds will be given for shields damaged beyond repair.

Trial Program: We are so sure you'll like your Windbender that we'll let you buy one, put it on your bike and take it for a few test rides to find your personal sweet spot. If you absolutely do not like it and want to return the whole kit, we only ask that you send it back to us as clean as we sent it to you. A full refund, less a $25.00 restocking fee plus any required cleaning or polishing charges, will be credited to your card. FEES: There will be a $50 polishing fee for to refresh the Base Unit of all returned Windbender kits. We don't expect the Base Shield to be perfect - it never will be after installation. If you send your kit back with a dirty or scratched Top Shield there will be an additional $50 fee to polish the Top Shield. No refunds will be given for shields damaged beyond repair.

WARNING: The wind protection can be so complete on the riders face and in some cases the co-rider, that a false sense of security can be experienced. Firecreek Accessories Inc. strongly recommends wearing eye protection at all times while riding. Even though small light bugs and light rain can be carried over the top in the wind stream, hard shelled bugs, full rain drops and rocks can penetrate the wind stream and get to the rider and co-rider.
