The Ultimate Adjustable Windshield
For Almost Any Motorcycle!
Transform your ridewith MadStad RoboBrackets, a patent-pending adjustable windshield system that allows you to control the position and angle of a motorcycle windshield. Why is that important? Because the improvement in airflow, wind noise and ride comfort is simply amazing. Best of all, RoboBrackets are slim, lightweight and can be mounted on almost any motorcycle.
Why force yourself to adapt to a windshield when that windshield can adapt to you?
Most motorcycles have fixed windshields, and often they put turbulence and air pressure on the rider. Poor airflow is very annoying, uncomfortable and on some bikes just plain unbearable. To make things worse, most shields are edge-mounted to the fairing so you are stuck with the size, shape and position of the shield. You can't widen it, you can't move it, and you can't reposition it for better airflow. Larger aftermarket windshields only tend to make things worse.
MadStad RoboBrackets change all that. They allow you to take control of the airflow by making the windshield adjustable for height, angle and distance from rider. This eliminates the vacuum behind the shield and eliminates turbulence. They also give you the option to change the size and shape of the shield so you can get the wind protection you want, regardless of how the manufacturer designed the stock windshield mount. No other aftermarket system can do all of that, and there is nothing else like them anywhere.
Your windshield can be placed in hundreds of different positions, whatever works specifically for you.
Take a look some of the installations below. These are the same brackets mounted on different bikes. With RoboBrackets and a new front shield, each of these bikes feels like an entirely new ride with a huge improvement in smoothness and comfort. The adjustable front shields come in several different shape patterns, each designed to provide superior airflow and protection while blending in nicely with the look of the bike.

Here are some of the unsolicited comments from riders who have tried our RoboBracket system:
(Triumph Tiger 1050) - I have been using the Madstad Triumph Tiger windscreen for my 2007 Tiger for almost a year. Just want to drop you a line and let you know what a fantastic product you have. This is the best improvement an owner can make to his Triumph Tiger. I had tried three screens before this and none even came close to this product. Gone is the buffeting and turbulence that was only moved to a different position with the other accessory screens. And if I want wind in my face, all it takes is a simple adjustment. The only problem I have is because the Madstad screen works so well, many times I find myself riding several miles and then discovering I have forgotten to flip down my modular helmet –it works that well. Thanks for designing this and making it available for the Tiger owners. - D.B., Millerstown, PA
(Triumph Tiger 1050) - Can’t possibly get any better than this. Tested over triple digits, very sturdy. - D.H., Doyline, LA
(Suzuki Bandit 1250) - All I can say is I am very pleased with the new set up. It makes all the difference in wind protection for me and I could now use this bike to ride cross country now with this amount of wind protection. I have tried just about every screen you can have (double bubble, MRA vario, Givi, ZG touring) and while the best to date was the new ZG touring it still had too much wind blast at speed on my arms and shoulders and the wind hit me at the base of the helmet. The set up from you I just mounted has the wind off of my arms and is hitting me in the middle of the shield. It was quiet and smooth up to about 80 where I backed off. I could ride across the country tomorrow with this set up now, and it also in my opinion looks pretty good too. Sweet!!! – J.R., Santa Rosa, CA
(Can-Am Spyder) - I have found that with the Robobracket from MadStad and their 20" shield I get the best overall wind protection of any I have tried so far. It is amazing how a smaller shield that looks nice on the spyder does the best job. I sincerely believe it has to do with the adjustability of the brackets, enabling you to set the shield to your preferences. – D.T., Grand Blanc, MI
(BMW F800ST) - I just wanted to say thanks for the great windshield -- it's a big improvement over the stock BMW F800ST screen. I had a nice, comfortable freeway ride yesterday and could actually hear the engine for a change instead of getting whiplash every time I turned my head. So, again, I say thanks for a great product! - C.S., New Brighton, MN
(Suzuki V-Strom) - I am very satisfied with your Madstad mounting system on my DL 650 Suzuki, to the point that it has spoiled me. I now have a hard time liking any other motorcycle. The ride is that comfortable now. - John V., Port Orange, FL

RoboBrackets achieve what no other aftermarket shield can, because they free your bike from the constraints of the stock shield mounts. It doesn't matter what height you are, what seating position you have, risers or no risers. There are so many adjustment positions that virtually any rider can find his or her ideal comfort setting. The same adjustable shield can work for a 170 cm (5'7") rider as well as it does for a 193cm (6'4") rider.
Another great advantage of our system is that a smaller windshield can perform better than a larger one. That is a tough concept to get used to! Touring shields are often huge because they try to hide you from the turbulence, but why would you want a big plastic sail on the front of your bike? It will hurt your mileage, catch crosswinds that push your bike around, looks ugly and creates a greater vacuum behind it which can actually make buffeting worse. With RoboBrackets installed, a smaller shield will produce no vacuum, no turbulence and can direct smooth airflow exactly where you want it. Many motorcycles actually become more stable with RoboBrackets installed, and users have been amazed at the improvement in their riding comfort with a smaller shield.
We've tested RoboBrackets on a wide variety of bikes and the results are always the same: smoother airflow and improved comfort, even at 120+ mph speeds (193+ kph). Why would you want to spend hundreds of dollars buying several different fixed shields, trying to find one that works specifically for you? You will find yourself with a stack of used shields, a thinner wallet, and still no solution to your problem. Now you can have a single windshield system that adapts itself to the rider, not the other way around.

RoboBrackets are made from heavy duty stainless steel and aluminum but are only 1.02” (26mm) thick when fully collapsed, and weigh only 11.6 ounces (328 grams) complete, including mounting hardware. By comparison, a typical 16" x 16" x 1/8" thick (406 x 406 x 3 mm) plastic shield weighs 17 ounces (482 grams).
The brackets and link arms are both slotted, and the brackets can be inverted. This means that when mounted at a 60 degree angle, the height adjustment range for your shield is a whopping 6.3 inches or about 160 mm! Angle adjustments are unlimited so you can tweak the airflow exactly the way you want it because sometimes just a small change of angle or position can make a big difference.
RoboBrackets are plated and powder-coated black. The brackets shown above are the 'universal' type which can mount to the front surface of almost any stock windshield. For some bikes like the Can-Am Spyder, BMW F800ST, Kawasaki KLR650 and others, MadStad Engineering manufactures an aluminum "shorty" screen that makes a much stronger mounting base and bolts on right where your stock shield used to be. We then offer a variety of new front shields (in several shapes and sizes) which bolt right onto the RoboBrackets to complete the system (see photos above). You can experiment with your own spare shields if you like, but chances are that any fixed shield for your bike will make a lousy adjustable shield. Please call us if you have any questions about this.
Adjustments are easy using a 4 mm Allen wrench (hex key) and a 10 mm open-end wrench, both of which are provided so you can carry them in your tool kit. Windshields detach quickly with 5 mm T-screws that are provided with every set of brackets, so it only takes a couple of minutes to pop off the shield and make any bracket adjustments that are needed. Once you find your sweet spot you are pretty much set!
If you aren't sure whether RoboBrackets can be used on your particular make and model motorcycle, please send us an email at MadStad Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll let you know what we can do to accomodate your bike.
