Phew, that's a relief. For a second I thought somebody had made a V-Strom chopper.

Did you chop it progressively smaller? How does it work? I was thinking of cutting mine...or maybe trying a vent hole in the bottom.

I started 1" above the fairing, the went flush. It is very similar to riding screenless, but looks better IMHO. If you try it, use the top of the screen to practice cutting.....something I learned the hard way.

Strom Chopper, eh?

Hey it looks cool. I have generally believed that in most cases, less screen is better screen. Except of course when it gets bloody cold.

I have cut up plenty of windscreens over the years. After you do a few it's really kind of fun. I used a coping saw years ago but the Dremel tool is the ultimate weapon. After rough cutting then, filing the edges and then progressively finer sand paper and you can get a perfect edge.

Nice job on your mini screen.

BTW do you ever ride up in the White Mountains?

I guess it's better to bend a valve in Missoula than to lose your mind in Bozeman.

Haven't yet, new baby and a toddler keep me close to home. I plan on working on a NH/New England riding group this winter.
