I split mine too far, in my opinion, and it looks worse for it. I think mine is at 2.5" spread, maybe 3", at the rear. This left the windshield perpendicular to the ground, which would be fine, but the upper "frame" around the headlight is bent over pointing sort of toward the ground instead of being perpendicular. This could have been fixed had my cut been handled differently.

It doesn't look awful, just a little more "extreme" than most. It also possibly cuts down on wind against me a little bit more.
