    Ahh, you have the lowers too, that probably helps a lot. Good looking setup though.

    The lower "winglets" are standard but they are removable. I think I stated earlier in this thread that I take them off in warm weather, allowing more air against my lower torso but this does not affect air flow to the face or helmet.

    Ha, I see now. I read where you said that, but I really did not know what you were talking about and didn't put 2 and 2 together.

    I tried these a couple weeks back actually. They would not fit the MRA variotouring screen I have. Can't say about fitting any other screen, but they weren't far enough apart to fit that screen. I was bummed because I was looking forward to being able to use them.

    I think I have perhaps the first Madstad or one of the first three. I sent them a lot of pictures and measurements anyway. No winglets then (2013).

    I'm 5'11" and run the 20" screen with full forward tilt and 1" from the top. It's pretty much perfect. When I first mounted it I found the Honda hand guards touched the screen a bit more than I liked. So I pulled the guards and screwed on the winglets. I rode all winter like that and was quite comfortable.

    So far here in Virginia I'm still OK but I use a very light jacket and 1/2 hat in the summer. That helps a lot.

    If I needed more cooling, I too would pull the winglets first then lower and tilt the shield back. But sometimes clean air is like a blow dryer set on high a foot from your face. Be careful what you wish for.

    I thought six months ago I would lower the shield come summer. So far I've not moved a thing.

    I can answer my question. Don't bother. Maybe, and that's a big maybe- you could re-drill the polycarb to work with these sliders but they still don't line up or want to attach to the bracket over the headlight. So far on the garage upgrades: pipe, adj. pegs, tank protector, +3; windshield adjusters -1. Should have gone with a clip on extension.

    Jeffro,
    Would like to give those a try. But can't find the product. Can you tell me where available?
    Thank you,
    Steve
