Has anyone had any problems with "quick release" windshields? The idea seems good, but are they more succeptable to being stolen? Is there a problem with stolen windshields? :coffee:

Guess quick release would make it easier for some turd to rip it off. I've had no problems but then, it's only been 6 mos. since I bought my bike. Time will tell, I suppose.

No problems yet but I guess it depends on where you park the X. I park in pretty secure areas. Mostly in the garage and on the Navy Base I where I work. But I haven't had any problems in town.

My thought is the thief ideally would be a rider or the shield would be of no use to him. I wouldn't think a rider would direspect another rider like that but who knows these days.

I don't know about the quick release windsheilds for the X's, but my brother-in-law had one on a HD, he stopped on the emergency lane on the interstate and a semi went buy and it blew off and shattered.

I've got the Memphis Shades, no problems at all. What I like best about the quick disconnect the ease of cleaning the front of the bike with it removed. Takes about 8 seconds to remove and about the same amount of time to reinstall. :patriot:

I have the Switchblade 2 up and no problems so far.(2 years)
I worry more about my Ultimate X seat Drivers backrest more than the shield.
The backrest pulls out real easy and could be stashed under a coat.
