    I don't have the means to upload pictures, but its just a few inched shorter. Nothing else about it changed. I watched this to learn how to do it if you're interested:
    Trim a motorcycle windshield. - YouTube

    I'd suggest you try the extenders first. That made much more of a difference than cutting down the windshield.

    They are little brackets that you bolt into the mirror mount that allow you to mount your mirrors about 2" further out. They help with seeing around your arms and getting the mirrors further "out".

    I tried the experiment, removed the mirrors and went for a ride. I noticed little or no effect, so In my case it doesn't seem to be a factor. I also removed the handguards, and that didn't seem to help either.

    What would be the best way to go about cutting it down? Dremmel or something similar? A jigsaw with the right blade would work, too, I would think. With warmer weather already here in Arkansas, I want to get clean air all summer long. I plan on purchasing a Madstad for the winter time, but until then I want to shorten the screen to just cover the instrument panel. Maybe even shorter than this picture. I have mirror extenders on the way, as well.

    I wonder if you couldn’t just drill four new holes and lower the screen? Not sure how it is on your year bike.

    One idea: You mentioned switching back and forth between the Madstad and a shortened shield. If you can buy the original style Madstad used from someone, the original mount is a curved black metal shield that would protect the instrument panel. For summer you just remove the Madstad screen and adjustable mounts, leaving the little metal shield as your summer windscreen.

    I may take it off and see how much lower I'd be able to go. That might just work!

    Didn't know that about the Madstad! That'd be wonderful. Will definitely check on that.
