I assume you mean a 1500 because that is the one in the link you provided.

It's not terrible, just a bit of a pain. Pull back the rubber boots at mirrors. Remove mirrors 3 Phillips (a little tough to get at). Once they're off then remove the Chrome facial piece. That reveals the Windshield lock down screws & retainers. Large Phillips removes those. Windshield comes off.

The one thing I didn't mention is you will want to lift the Windshield adjustments levers through the process.

Cut the windshield yourself, have heard it being done with a jigsaw. I would mark it before you take it off & tape it on bothe sides before you cut it.

I cut a couple of inches off of mine right on the bike.Covered the bike up as best I could for dust,taped off the area I was going to cut,marked the cut line useing a pattern made from the top of the windsheild,went at it with a copeing saw and then sanded the edge when done.If you do it on the bike you don't have to worry about trying to hold it and not scratch it.

Just cut mine 3 days ago.Took out 2". Piece of cake! Got the info from here (this forum). Very helpful! Thank you guys. Just use a lot of masking tape and very fine sand paper. After you are done use MEK from your local hardware store to seal the edge. Looks like factory cut. I was using a jigsaw with a metal blade (blade with fine teeth).

I need to get the courage up I guess.
