Thumb ztechnics V stream

Hey guys just wanted to tell you, I to was annoyed by the standard wind screen ,and couldnt really find much in my budget that would work well . So I tried the medium Vstream and to much dissapointment it didnt help much . So i got to thinking if this screen was rolled slightly foward it would problay do a better job. So I drilled new mouting holes threw the shield rolling the screen foward turned some 1" spacers on the lathe to hold it in position using all the stock mouting points . What a suprise it works awesome . I always ride with a helment but just for a test i took the f8 out around the block with nothing more than a ball cap on and my hat stayed in place at 50mph . nice and quiet behind the screen . May sound cheap but it really worked and looks good i just filled the previous holes with rubber plugs. The next test i did was riding in the rain and it performed very well keeping me fairly dry . Just a thought for some of of ya . Oh im 6-3 with a 34" inseam if that helps anyone .
