I have the OEM tall shield, very happy:

I did not like how the shield was almost straight up and down. So, I made a set of brackets to lean it back a little.

Once this was done, I had enough room to mount my stereo speakers directly to the windshield frame. This is very sturdy, no buffering at all.

Thanks, for the picture. I did something similar and it fixes the buffeting issue with my head rattling around, much much better.

I have done similar mod on mine except i matched windshield angle to fork angle. This caused the windshield to be too high off the headlight. With a flexible 18" ruler and a grease pencil, many lines later got the holes drilled and now it's perfect height and angle. Still can't believe Honda just stuck that shield on the bike like that.

Directions ? That's only the Manufacturer's opinion of the way this should be assembled.

Thanks for the info. I'll be making a bracket, too. What kind of stereo system is that? Is it loud enough to hear at interstate speed?

Thanks!

I have the oem shield and made all the adjusting I can make and still get wind in the ears so I thought I was going to have to start wearing plugs. I bought a helmet last week with the zipped in pads that cover ears. I took it off cause didn't like the way it looks. I decided yesterday to zip it back in and then tried the helmet out on a highway ride. Helmet is perfect and wind is no longer a problem so now ready for summer riding.

Just installed mine today. I made some brackets with the holes about an inch apart. Works great! I don't get any helmet buffering all the way to 90 mph. I didn't test it any faster than that. Thanks hitchet.com for that tip.

Does anyone know where to get Honda OEM four point mounting hardware or a similar aftermarket.

If you find a way to make this happen, please post a thread with pictures and instructions! I think a lot of Valk owners would prefer a fairing.

I know that I would like to see this as well. I mounted a batwing fairing, but took it off because it looked like my bike had a black beluga whale head.

Never liked them myself but had one on my vtx1800 and it worked perfectly.
