I installed the Saeng Wing-Tip http://www.saeng.com/2117.htm and have placed my review in the Product Review section of the Official Reviews category on this board.
Thanks for the product review. Unfortunately all windshield solutions work better or worse depending on the rider's height.

Just a thought. If you tried one of those air cushions that folks have been discussing in another thread, it might raise you up an inch or so. That may or may not be enough to get you looking over the top - but that Walmart one is only $10 - cheap enough to experiment with...

Actually I'm going to see if I can have my mechanic see if he can either cut it down 2 inches or figure out some other way of lowering it 2 inches.

Or... You could return it to SAENG, and request the Winglet - which is basically the same as the Wingtip, but much shorter... The mounts might even be the same, so you wouldn't have to remove the ones already attached to your screen. Call Nancy and ask - it might be a great solution (and the Winglet is less expensive too).

Ok - a little ingenuity and the problem with the Saeng Wing-Tip was solved! At the two points where it attaches to the already-attached (via 3m adhesive) mounts, I simply took off the shield (original mounts still on stock windscreen), turned it over 180 degrees and remounted it. Now the Wing-Tip which was about 6 inches above the mounts (on top) and 2 inches below have been reversed. Now I have only 2 inches above the mounts and it works like a charm! I can see over it (instead of through it), and it can still be adjusted on the fly. Had it up to 102 mph (indicated) and readjustment by wind was nominal this time. Put on 115 miles with it today and no problem(s). I'm happy!!!

I'll bet Saeng didn't even know about this "feature"!

Chuck is that the stock windshield you put the wingtips on, how tall are you :?: Wayne
Its the stock windshield. I'm 5'10" and the Wing Tip was too tall for me (I like to look OVER the Wing Tip, not through it)... so I turned it upside down and its perfect. Now instead of 6" above the stock windshield (or whatever the height was), its only 2" above. The adjustability is still there and well worth it. If I ever sell the bike to a taller rider, I can just flip the Wing Tip back to "normal". Being able to adjust on the fly is priceless! Wind in my face during sweltering heat, and no wind at all when cold out, and any combination in between.

You can always have it cut to size at a glass shop that will cut plexiglass.
