Does it really need to be that tall. Looks a tad oversized for my likes. Still, a killer early and creative bolt on.

Wacky

Maybe mod the bracket so the windshield angle matches the forks and trim a few inches off the top?

Too tall? Well, depends on how tall the rider is. I probably wouldn't need it that high, but I think you did a mighty fine job of it!

Well Here's the story...I got tired of eating dirt and bouncing them damn rock's off my head. So I like the Honda windshield made for the VTX and the Aero and I got lucky and found one on ebay for half the price from the dealership and thought that I would need to remove the Cowling due to it being 14 inches wide and the average fork is about 12. I was also going to replace the headlight, but just wanted to see how it would look and turn's out kinda cool. So I had to shave off a little on the sides which are covered by the brackets. Used some 55mm fork clamps and a memphis 9907 mounting kit and removed the honda brackets, cut the slits about 1/4 inch on both side. I liked the tall windshield, kills the ringing ears and all the bugs, rocks, and dirt. Had to get a new feel for my speed and watch my speed more because I was cruising in the 80's and 90's. You can't feel the wind and I was speeding alot more then I realized.

A very practical mod for sure, but just my opinion -- I don't care for the cop-style shield on a sporty bike. I am hoping Suzi comes out soon with the shield they showed at the dealer shows last fall.

First of all great job, but I just can't bring my self to do that to my 109, when the wind bothers me that much I'll leave the bike at home
and take the jeep. 8)

Looks like you need to work on your fence a lil.... :D jk Your screen a lil big for the style of bike, bu I bet it works . I would like to see it tilted a little back to follow the lines better.

That shield is so big that it'll probably stop anything coming your way! Certainly shows some creativity, but for me, I like to stick with something that flows with the lines of the bike. My shield is a Memphis Shades Shooter and is quite adjustable and seems to fit the "look" of the bike.
