Triming the 1800 windshield
I have seen it mentioned here a couple of times through the years. In an effort to reduce passenger buffeting, owners have trimmed the windshield down several inches.
From looking at my shield I believe I could shorten it to be in line with my chin without negatively effecting the vent. If I want more protection in the rain I could still raise it to be able to ride behind the shield.
I have two questions for your discussion:
1. Does anyone have experience in this working or not for reducing buffeting?
2. If you were going to try this, what tools would you use and how would you ensure an attractive cut?
