I have a 2001 with the Windbender, it has three settings. The lower shield, the upper shield and if you pop the caps off of the upper shield and loosen the screws it has about 1" of adjustment. With all adjustments at the lowest I still needed about 1" to have a clear line of sight. So I removed the slide from the upper shield, the one with the notches, measured down 1" and drilled and tapped the holes with 10/24 tap. Tried it today and it worked great.

If you do this make sure you tap it as the screw goes in and as the tap just sticks through the other side stop or it will be to loose.

You keep all of the adjustments but it sits about 1" lower.

Did you get the windbender with a bike purchase?

Do you know the size and model of the Windbender? There is the straight end...the curved end. There is the 14 inch and then the 17 inch top shield.

DanB has the windbender on a 1500. He and I are about the same height....so I will probably use his setup as a model to order mine, but reading about your modification is interesting to me.
