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

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.

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.
