Ellen, here it is. Hope you can view it. Theverdana on left, see the chrome head above headlight, you'll see the wiper arm extending to upper right on the windshield.



The wiper switch is at the bottom. Has two positions, interval wipe and continuous.

The switch array on left handlebar. Of the top three switches, the extreme left is the flusher switch. I never operate that especially with vents open. Obviously you will spray right through the vent and the unexpected moisture attacks you (too late when you recognize).

Wiper Blade on windshield. Different angle. Noticed there is a black protruding spray head left of windshield wiper base. That is where the flusher sprays on the windshield!



Speaking of windshield material. Very scratch proof material feels thicker than the ones I rode on one of my friends Goldwing in New Orleans. I use an equivalent of Plexus to keep my windshield clear and that makes the wiper work smoother when the rain gets heavy.

Windshield flusher tank. Located rear behind license plate holder. Notice the chrome cap that is the filler hole to the flusher tank.

Hi folks only had my 1500 se for 6 weeks but already looking at some kind of screen wiper being a short arse i am looking through the screen not over it.i have been reading the threads and i was wondering if anyone has tried a window tint film on the screen to see if that works without scratching.
first time on the site tonight but it wont be the last.

It would be ok to make them optional but I don't want a wiper on mine.

I have tried every kind of plastic lenses and magic sure to do the job coating that can be found for plastic lenses. They still scratch. I specifically had a pair of glasses made out of glass....it took a bit of time....they looked at me like I was crazy.....glass??

I do not think any plastic windshield will hold up to a wiper for very long. The very first time a truck or lorry runs past and covers you with road grime....and you make a swipe or two with the wiper.......there you go.......scratched up......Kit
I have the same Glasses Kit, they always scratch no matter how I try to take care of them , I plastic windshield will as well,

Find a way to make unbreakable glass and maybe that will work
