Having tried the stock shield in all positions, i found the lowest position to induce less buffeting. I had gotten the idea from monkeygrass to cut the stock shield down so as to let clean wind hit you without the buffeting, but did'nt really want to cut mine so...I found another possible answer.
By lowering the factory shield so that the mounting pegs were holding the screen through the third set of holes(from the bottom up), and redrilling the four holes for the mounting screws, i was able to lower the stock screen down about two more inch's. I then had to redrill the two holes for the two mounting bolt covers little stabilizer pegs. By drilling these 6 holes i was able to retain all factory mounts, shield and screws. It brings out more of a sportbike look and lets the wind hit your upper body without much turbulence.
I tried the new height setting at all legal highway speeds and it seems like a good summertime solution. One drawback is that the screen can't go back to the factory height without the newly drilled hole on top showing. As i use a givi in the winter it won't be an issue. J.R.
