Windshield dilema

Hey all, new member here. 2019 Road Glide Special. I love my new scoot but, the windshield needs to be taller. I get anlot of wind to the face. I have 12 inch LA Choppers bars and tried a Clockwerks sport Flare but the brake and clutch levers hit it. Called Clockwerks and they said to cut it with a dremel. Well, sold it to a buddy instead. Anyone else have this issue? I have the pin still and like the bars where they are. Would rather not punch it out and rotate them. Any suggestions would be awesome.

Welcome to the forum. Like seats, exhaust and so on, there are many good companies out there. Have a look at Windvest, Freedom shields, Memphis Shields(?). You can also look at this forums for sale section, there are shields that come up for sale. Added note for our sale section, it seems when shields come up for sale, the prices are usually pretty good so they go pretty fast.

Welcome from northern Illinois
Many different shield options with many different opinions. If you can’t find the answers here they don’t exist!

Congrats, Welcome to the Tank from Texas and enjoy! Windscreen, I'd contact Freedom Shields, tell them what you are wanting and they can fix you up.

Ditto. Be sure to mention that your a member here for your discount.

When you get one of John's shields, leave the protective film on until you're satisfied you've got your clearance and purchased the height that suits you. As long as you leave the protective film on, John will swap you another (you're out freight cost of course) but at least you get the perfect shield for yourself.

Welcome from Minnesota! I would not hesitate to punch that pin. But if they are where you want them find another shield. If one sport shield is a problem then most will be. Try a standard shield.

Look at LRS (long ride sheilds) Stingray. It's a little narrower half about a quarter of the way up, bars shouldn't hit.

I have one, like it a lot.

Welcome. I'm a fan of Windvest shields. Don't know if it would work with your bars. Good luck.

Welcome from SW Florida. Strongly suggest you re-post your question under the "Windshields" section for more responses.
