Windshield Shims + Towel test
I have always rode the DL-650 with the windscreen in the middle, factory spot. Yeah, there is wind noise and buffeting but It never bothered me so much I had to fix it immediatley.
Well today I was farting around and thought I would play with it..
So I took some of the wisdom from the site here and adjusted it.
1. I moved it up 1 notch to the TOP Factory Spot (I looked at going to the Super secret 4th or 5th spot... but I thought it looked weird)
2. I put 2 steel washers on each top bolt... On the Black H Bar under the screen. Probably totaled 1/8" thick (washers between the H and the Fairing)
3. I put 1 Black rubber washer on each top screw between the Windscreen and the the H-Bar. about 1/8" thick.
4. I packed the crevice in the middle with foam .. Like the post here called "Towel Test" calls for
rode it around ..! :P
WOW am I surprised... it is a very different feel and I like it.
No wind noise or buffeting from 0 to 60
above 60 you get some but it is much reduced
for 20 cents worth of parts I am real happy.
So by kicking the angle of the screen up it seems to send the blast up Higher over my head..
Before it seemed like the balst was always at about my eye brows.
now it just skims the top of my helmet..
It's not perect but it is musch closer...
For 20 cents you cant go wrong try it tell me what you think
I am 5' 10"
