found it...it's HERE.
$159.00 good price...better than most.
I added a Parabellum windshield to my bike. I noticed that the top edge of the sheild is lit up and somewhat distracting when riding after dark. The bottom of the sheild is over the top inch of the headlight, so .... you get the light showing up on all edges of the shield.
I was able to reduce edge light by about 90% with a simple mod of putting door edge guard acorss the bottom of the shield.
The photos show a before & after with the headlight on.

How is that windshield? Is it tall enough? Any review of how well it works?
It is night & day compared to riding with the stock shield. The stock sheild put the wind right in my chest & throat. This one sends most of the wind up and over me. Still have some buffeting on the helmet, but vastly better than the stock experiance. I've ridden about 500 miles with it so far.
They have it in 3 heights, I bought the tallest one they sell.
Are you talking about the light coming from the panel hitting the shield? The panel light can be turned down.
I need to do this on my CalSci medium. Have the exact problem. I wonder if painting it black would help? It is like a fiber optic effect. The light is not from the information display.
Ziggie- No, I'm talking about the fact that the edge of the windshield was lit up pretty good as soon as the headlight is turned on. The light from the headlight was entering the bottom edge of the shield and basically projecting out the top edge. (which is right at eye level for me) You can kind of see what I am talking about if you compare the 1st & 2nd photos in the post.
Others would pay so much money for this light effect
As suggested above, it seems like painting black might also work, it sure looks like total internal reflection. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total...nal_reflection
...and bike's more fun too!
I had the same problem with mine. The Parabellum shields extend further down toward the headlight than other ones, which causes it to catch a lot more of the headlight beam. After I raised mine up with a set of windshield extenders the litebrite problem became less pronounced, but this looks like a good way to get rid of it altogether.
