No more noise, no buffeting (have been up to 90-95 mph) and reasonable bug protection.

And what is more it actually looks right.

500X -- I'm very happy for you -- now you can really enjoy the bike vs always having the dreaded highway in the back of your mind.  It is amazing how different the answer to the same question is to all of us -- there's likely some wisdom in there somewhere. 

It does look really good to boot -- nice work.

Looks good 500-X.   However, those of us in colder climes are doomed to continue the search for the Holy Grail (wind protection with low wind noise and without buffeting) if we are to maximize our riding season.

 :306: Went on a 250 mile ride , some 70 mph ( which was unbearable previously due to buffeting ) Cut my ear plugs half length so I could hear my Leo Vince GP corsa ( Love the pipe ) was quite comfortable and not fatigued . Now to do something about that seat.
The windshield chop job,and the bent down mounts are a complete success for me, and was quite easy to cut with a cheap cutting wheel on a variable speed drill. Just make sure to tape the windshield first. I'm 5'9" with a 29" inseam. Worked for me. As some of you know I was about to give up on the bike, but thanks to your encouragement I did not. Now with the cut down windshield, rear sprocket change and the new pipe, which gives it a lot of personality, It finally feels right. Now to add some additional lighting and a few more little doo-dads .Think I'll be holding onto it for a while, well until there are some left over 2016's out there.
Thank you all  :821:

PS or maybe one of these

That's a fearsome looking beast. But all the disadvantages of a car plus all the disadvantages of a bike and the advantages of neither.

So get wet and get stuck in traffic.

I think bending the mounting brackets down is the thing that made the difference, changed the angle. Try it and see.
