After two weeks and a few hundred miles I couldn't stand looking through the windshield anymore. I cut four and three-quarter inches off and went for a ride the bike feels the same on the highway the wind still goes over my helmet but now I can see over the top of the shield. I don't know how I feel about the way it looks ill have to get use to that but, I do think I'm happy with how it is now.

Looks better, my first bike came with a tall windshield but I still got a LOT of buffeting. Didn't think about cutting it down, ended up buying a stealth slipstreamer and it worked well enough and looked better.
On my valk I have a 12" gustafsson which I like. Hardy any buffeting but it does create a lot of wind noise. Not sure what I'm gonna do about that yet.

Tape up both sides with blue painters tape be generous. I covered both sides of the windshield/tank with blankets scribed my line on the tape with a pencil and used a jigsaw with the laminate blade then I used 2000 wet dry to polish up the edge. You need a lot of tape to protect the windshield from getting scratched by the jigsaw.

Prgrmerrer,My windscreen was tall also, to remedy that made some adjustments. Slid the windshield support brackets aft 1/2 inch from brake and clutch reservior, next removed windshield and ground to contour the bottom of wind shield with head light nacelle. Cut the top shield bracket and removed 1/2 inch then drilled new mounting holes . On bottom shield supports made two rubber shims 1/4 to boot shield at aft. angle. Lastly poitioned shield !/4 inch from head light nacelle then carefully drilled new holes. Debur holes to relieve stress on wind shield to prevent cracking. The result is windshield will be about 4 inches lower and angled to match the front fork rake. It is a little work but not difficult and the results look good HH F62014

Looks good, I hate tall windshields, it doesn't stay cold long here so a windshield isn't needed much. I have a tall one I was trying to decide whether to use or not, I think it is going to meet the blade!!!!!
