Can't wait. Just ordered my Cee Bailey's Windscreen for my Burgman 400 '07.

Last year, I was using this blade thing from Twisted throttle which was an improvement, especially in calm air, but the stock wind screen is so flexible that it looses it's effectiveness in cross winds.

I went with the largest one which is the 29.5 inch domed cut. Hopefully it's not too tall. I'll have to update you guys when It arrives and I get to test it. We're still pretty cold this year up in Steinbach Manitoba (Canada) although I have seen two brave bikers so far. We've been averaging 25 degrees F the last while. Last year my cut off for riding was 15 degrees F so we have a ways to go. After that, it's a little too chilly at least if it's over cast or in the evening. The normals for this time of year is about 47.

Can't wait to get out and riding again.

Don,

You will really like the Cee Bailey screen over the OEM screen. I've had the C.B. Screens on my Silverwing and both of my Burg 400s and they are great! The quality and function are top notch.

Mine have not been the tallest size as I prefer to look over the screen rather than through it. My first Burg had a Euro style top while this one has the dome style. The Euro looks better but I think that the dome style works a little better but they are both great. Very little flexing too, even in strong winds.

Let us know how it works for you once you install it.

From what I understand it should mount just like the oem one.

Can't wait, I got the tracking number already ... so it IS on it's way.

I am hoping to be able to see over the 29/5 " screen. I saw one else ( 6' tall ) post that it worked well for them to see over and I know I can see over all 4 fingers placed on top of my wind screen. This screen is only suposed to be 3" taller than the factory one.

My new Ceebailey Windscreen arrived just yesterday.
Installed it today and took a spin. Had a bit of fun figuring out those capture nuts :)
No flexing and I can see the road about 30 yards ahead still over the wind screen.

Had to ream out the mounting holes as they were quite oval shaped. Non problems though. I used a counter sink bit to round out the hold some and then a metal bit but used the drill in reverse so it didn't catch. Amazingly it did the job quite well ?? in reverse ?? No cracking / splintering at all.


Check out that great signature. "Cee Bailey's"


The last pick is just with my iphone. May look a little distorted from the close angle.
OH and check out all the snow in the back ground. ????in April????
It's supposed to warm up for the weekend though :)

The CB screen looks great on your Burg. And I'm glad that you are able to look over it. I'm pretty short and that's why I went with a lower height.

And yes, the CB screen fits on the 400 just like the OEM screen with no fitment kit or anything else. And fortunately, the pre-drilled holes in the CB screen matched perfectly and it went on just fine for me (no drilling) except for the struggle with the mounting screws - too bad that Suzuki didn't copy the Honda method.

I had a Cee Bailey back on my GoldWing. I can't say enough about the quality and company. They are well known for their aircraft products, including windshields. I plan to replace the OEM with one of their products ASAP. The link to their Burgman 400 page is http://www.ceebaileys.com/suzuki/an400burgmanws.html.

+1 for Cee Bailey. IMO they make the highest quality WS available. I just wish they made them with hand air deflectors.

do you think the optical quality of Cee Bailey windscreens is superior to the GIVI ones?

Fernando, I have a Cee Bailey screen on my Burg 400 and the clarity is fine. I have never ridden a Burgman with a Givi screen so I can't comment on the clarity.

However, I did have a Givi screen on my Honda SH150i, and I believe that the clarity on it was excellent - the same as the Cee Bailey's.

The quality of both brands is excellent and both are better than OEM.

Clarity is one important part of the equation, but the fact that the Cee Bailey shields are manufactured from .150 aircraft grade acrylic was key to my decision to buy one. I want protection from more than just the wind. When that odd piece of road debris comes flying at me at full travel speed, I want something between me and it. In my opinion, the Givi is very nice, but just not as solid a product (the Givi website does not appear to offer the thickness specs).

And then there is the domed shape and wind protection of the Cee Bailey v. Givi, which is a completely separate, subjective topic.

Looks like this screen might be compatible with the hand guards, isn't it?

The Cee Bailey screen is compatible with the OEM Suzuki Hand Deflectors - I had a pair for my previous 2008 Burg 400.

On my current 08 Burg 400, I use another brand of hand deflectors. I think that I bought them from after market Gold Wing accessory online site. I like this type better than the OEMs because they are much easier to remove for warm weather riding.
