Has anyone gone at high speed with a Givi windshield on Silverwing 600 scooter?

by Lyle
(Phoenix, AZ)

I am interested in putting a higher windshield on my Honda Silverwing 600. The one from Givi has a sticker warning to not exceed 100 kph (62 mph).

Speeds are a lot higher here, 75-85 on the highway. Givi says the warning is a legal requirement because it's a replacement windshield. Has anyone used a Givi windshield on a 600 Silverwing at highway speeds? What is your experience? Is it safe?

I love my higher Givi windshield NEW
by: Tom

I bought a higher givi windshield for my 03 silverwing scoot.I have hit 100 Mph several times and have driven 80mph all day with no problems.when buying one you need to get it at the right hight so that you are actually looking a couple of inches over it if you try. If the windshield gets fogged up or if its raining hard you won't be able to see through it. Motorcycle windshields were made so that if you are looking over the top of It by a couple of inches you will not get hit by bugs or rain because they get shoot up over you. I feel safe with my givi windshield and when it gets old and stuffed up I will buy another one. it is shaped in a way that makes it much more ridged than stock.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
