Windscreen

For me the Honda windshield is mounted too high.
Couldn't you just take off the mounting plates, drill new holes and put the pane down?

I don't know where to go with the many cylinder

Don't have one of those NBA regulation backboards myself, but do you have sufficient space between the bottom of the windshield and the headlight nacelle to accomplish what you are proposing? Some people reduce the size of the shield by trimming at the top, but that can be a risky procedure. I've seen an F6C where the dude put extension flat bars to push the bottom of the windshield forward. The reduced vertical look is nice but the gap at the bottom of the windshield is somewhat unsightly. Sort of like a hillbilly with serious overbite issues.

It is too high... but you get used to looking through it... gotta say it does keep 90 pct of the buffeting and helmet shake at bay all in all its a keeper

For me the Boulevard Windscreen is perfect. Especially if you wear any helmet with a face shield. Myself I couple the Boulevard shield with an MRA removable spoiler mounted to the top of it.

Lower Honda Windshield.



I didn't like the standard assembly of the original screen from the start.

First of all, I couldn't look over it in heavy rain. Secondly, the disc was too steep for me.

So first I thought about cutting the disc by sawing it off, but this step is irreversible and the disc is still just as steep. Therefore, after disassembling the 4 screws of the holder, I loosely attached the washer to the holder with 2 cable ties and then with Lucy ........ she was looking for the most comfortable position ........ With the Edding the 4 new holes are marked and drilled, the holes are nicely polished and the disc is reassembled.

The window is now sloping and deeper, I have installed a screw in each of the 2 visible old holes, first as a provisional if I got 2 chrome blind plugs.

This step can be undone at any time.

Test drive today 100km to test the disc below.

What a difference, much less wind noise, much less turbulence, although I can now look over it, no mosquito corpses on my sunglasses. Before I had the feeling that I was sailing in front of the wind, now I feel that I am cutting myself through the wind, and the look is also much better

Good that you are happy with the results. Kinda disappointed the sign on the door does not translate to "Stop Farting!" :-)

I have tried 3 different windshields and the 2 Honda OEM windscreens suck, not only ugly on the motorcycle but they donít work very well either... SpitFire by SlipStream windscreen is far better and looks nice also... I bought mine from amazon for 75 beans and love love it, perrrrfect height, grrreat color, awesome piece, I recommend this product for your 14 & 16 1800 Valks... Todd from Tucson...
