I have heard about the Executive model coming with an adjustable windscreen, but I have not seen it advertised by Suzuki on any of their web sites. Is this a fantasy rumor or what?

Janine,

The eletrically adjustable windshield is standard on the '05 Executive version but unfortunately is not available in the USA. The '05 executive will also have white turn signal lenses, an electronic anti-theft-device, a push button-overdrive and a mileage computer.

Has anyone here tried making the stock windshield adjustable ? Putting some type of sliding device on the mounts ?

I haven't taken a look at the mounts myself yet so, maybe this couldn't be done but if it can, I'm sure someone from this group has done it! LOL

I happened to see that last night - very ingenius!

I was actually wondering if anyone had made the entire W/S adjustable, not just part of it, as you did. But, while I've got you, let me ask a couple of questions -

Are the 2 parts from 1 W/S are are they parts of 2 different shields ?
Either way - is it from stock shield(s) or aftermarket ?
Do you have templates for where to cut and where to drill ?
Before trying this, did you try making the entire shield adjustable ?

Thanks for the info.

Janine,

The mod was made from one stock windscreen. Unlike most forum members, I find the screen too tall although I am 6 feet tall. In the heat of summer I like to have a breeze to cool me down (the one disadvantage of wearing a full protective suit ). I cut the screen down about 4" on a scroll saw, then changed the shape of the top piece slightly before taping it to the lower half so that I could mark it where the holes and slots should go. No, I do not have templates, I just winged it. It turned out that the slots did not hold up too well and cracked, so I got another screen from someone on this forum and re-did it without the slots. Once I found the best position, I never changed it anyway. I now iether use the combined shield, or if it's particularly hot, I remove the top part and put it under the seat. No, I never did try to make the whole screen adjusable. Probably not impossible, just too much work for little return! Sorry I can't help you any more.

Cheers,

Bob

I installed a Laminar Lip on my stock windscreen. I positioned it with the top of the Lip at the same level as the windscreen. This allows me to still look over the windscreen, but it redirects the wind over my helmet. The head buffeting and noise were killing me at high speed. Since the lip is removable I can take it off in the summer if I want more air flow. My husband has the Yamaha FJR1300 with an adjustable screen and it's very nice, but he still has to shift. I guess there are always tradeoffs.
