Anyone know if something like this would fit the bike?

From the link that you provided I entered our model number and the rely was: "Does Not Fit Your Model".

Websites rarely ever have every product cataloged for every model so I don't always trust the "Does not fit your vehicle". It uses handlebar clamps so I don't see why it wouldn't fit. The only other variable would be the fork width for the supports at the bottom but you could easily use P-clamps or something to secure it to the forks if it needs a little modifying.

if it works out, definitely post a picture here. I'd love to see one on the rebel, especially after realizing what highways are like without one haha

I know... just did a 450 miles road trip with no windshield on and it was a very draining experience...

I hear you there. And I have the factory windscreen. Makes little to no difference. can't believe I spent $400 for that little thing. Tried taking it off the other day to try and fix it from rattling/vibrating. Couldn't get the bolts out because the heads are stripped now. fml.

I had to tweak the screen to fit (I had to reverse the arms that hold it so I can get them clamped to the relatively narrow space on the handlebars but it was really easy to do, even for a girl!)

I left the clamp covers off for now as I know I'll have to tweak it in my next few rides to get to the most comfortable angle, but it looks good for now :-)

lmk what you think.
