That's weird. I have exactly the same bike as you (2009 DL 650 ABS) with OEM hand guards, and they never came anywhere close to hitting my CalSci windshield, even when I raised the mounting bracket.The screen I got from CalSci hit my OEM hand-guards. I told the owner, had to pay shipping myself to ship it back for modification. Once I got it back I had the same problem.
Yes, had both and rode back-to-back trips to compare them. I use a Tall CalSci. Both on a Madstad.Has anyone gone from a Givi windscreen to a Cal scientific and if so what did you think? I notice the Cal is wider near trhe bottom.
Correct: it is that way on purpose. Otherwise it might reflect sunlight into your eyes.///I know other people on this forum had good luck with CalSci, however, it seems that if your luck is not so good you're SOL. Additionally, the finish of the product was never very good either before or after modification, rough edges / saw marks and the like.
