MadStad Engineering adjustable windshield brackets for the 2012-up Suzuki DL650 V-Strom
Just like our original V-Strom brackets you get total control over the windshield height, angle and airflow, greatly improving your comfort. Simple knob adjusters let you change the windshield settings in just seconds, allowing you to tweak the wind protection for your particular height and seating position. The improvement in smoothness and comfort are dramatic. Thousands have been sold worldwide with rave reviews as the best farkle you can buy for this bike.
There is one very important note: These brackets WILL NOT work with any stock or aftermarket windshield for this bike. There are multiple reasons for this, mainly because Suzuki chose to make flat mounts for a curved shield and our brackets can only do one or the other. So we chose to continue manufacturing a curved mounting bracket with the same windshield pattern as the previous V-Strom 650 /1000 series (2004-2011). This means you still have dozens of aftermarket windshields to choose from, including ours.
There are two MadStad windshield styles shown in the gallery on this page: the Adventure and the Sport SD available in three sizes and four colors to suit just about any rider.
Please visit our Windshields page to see all the available colors. The rider shown in the last two photos is 5’10” (178 cm) tall and his shield is the Adventure style 18" (500 mm) tall which is perfect for him with the brackets bolted into the lowest set of dashboard holes. This size shield is good for riders up to about this height, so if you are 5'11" to 6'1" or so, choose the 20" size (which is not only taller, it's a bit wider too). For riders taller than that we recommend our 22” (550 mm) size shield.
