" Although JCWhitney says it won't fit an Adventurer, it fits fine.It should also fit the Legend and Thunderbird triples, but I can't be sure of that. "
Pros: Easy to install and remove
Cons: some buffeting with crosswinds

" I picked this up a little over a year ago for my '81 Yamaha XS 850 after a few long rides in 40 degree weather made me reconsider running without any sort of windscreen. I was being a little picky in my selection; I wanted something that gave comparable wind protection to a full fairing, yet wouldn't obstruct my view of the road close to the bike without repositioning (think front tire close) and was easy to take off on hot days. I shopped around for a while until I came across National Cycle's Plexifairing line. The price seemed a little steep for someone on a tight budget, but since you usually get what you pay for I gritted my teeth and went with it.
The initial install needed a little time invested while I tinkered with different mounting positions for the hardware until I eventually found one that suited me best. Since then it takes maybe two minutes on a slow day to fully hook-up or remove once I get it carried to the bike. Blocks the wind without any trouble, will keep you less soaked for a while if a rain shower sneaks up on you, and I've ridden a few good 100 mile jaunts in freezing temperatures with it on (though not without some heavy gear on; it's good, but it's no Windjammer).
Good quality, slick design, serves it's purpose; all-in-all, this has been the best investment in accessories I've made for my bike to date. A must have if you make regular distance rides but still want to lose the fairing for some good ol' fashioned no-frills cruising. "
Pros: Ease of set-up, good overall coverage
