    Pretty much as the title states haha. I am just excited! I got it in dark grey because I think that would look good on my 03'. I keep seeing all these comments about top speed gain is this true? I just ordered mine for looks but that would be a bonus! I could see it helping just because if the bike was in one of those wind tunnels i could see this helping the bike throw more wind over the top of me rather than hitting me dead on creating drag. Idk i am 6'3 on a TW200 so as you can imagine i stick up off the bike pretty far.

    Jimbo's shields are great, you'll love it. Speed increase? I didn't notice it, but it does help to keep bugs out of my face and looks very very good!
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I notice a big difference between my bikes that dont and the one that does have the shield. Its amazing the amount of air that is deflected over my helemt. I have a gmax gm11 and the wind is pushed right over the visor with the jimbo shield. I need to get some for my oher bikes.

    Alex,



    I also put a Jimbo shield on my 2003 TW. Everyone should have one and I agree it makes it makes the bike look much better.



    I achieved a 25MPH speed increase with mine (or, at least that is what I estimate, I was enjoying the new shield so much that I never actually had time to look down at the speedometer). However, since you got the dark grey shield you should not expect that much increase. You see I got the Crystal Clear Jimbo shield. When you have top speeds in the range of what a TW can achieve the speed of light becomes one of the limiting parameters that you must consider. My Crystal Clear shield allows the light photons to pass through unimpeded. However, your grey shield will cause excessive drag against the photons and this will attenuate any speed increase that you would gain from the advanced aerodynamics of your new shield.



    So, enjoy your awesome new shield and the reduced wind buffeting and improved aesthetics that it provides but you will likely only enjoy minimal speed increases until you switch to the Crystal Clear version.

    I will argue the clear vs. dark gray. The dark gray that I have allows me to reach Dark Knight like light speed in 3RD GEAR !!

    I tend to keep it at low RPM's in 4th and 5th once I reach DK light speed. Plus, as I have said in past posts. I am all about the MX style vanity. It just looks cool.



    KUDOS to JIM !!

    LOL. Yeah serious kudos to JIM he really makes a great product I am very please. I do agree after having the shield it gets up to speed quicker (less wind drag). Because I got on the freeway today and I hit 65mph faster then before. I am doing 55mph in 4th gear at 3/4 thottle so the only time I hit 5th is the freeway now.
