There isn't any more than that if as much holding the whole windshield on to begin with. So personally I don't think that's a real concern. It does look kind of crappy, but i do see the merits of the design. While the short shield is very dark I don't think one would want to try to see through it in the rain. So having the upper part be clear makes sense.

Obviously not for everyone but...not a horrible concept either.

If i had an 1800, which i dont, still wouldnt want one of those shields..dont like the looks of it, not to mention what happens if u hit something with top half? Does it break off at bolts and hit you too? Doesnt look like it would take a bird collision or something very well IMO...

Made of Lucite Acrylic..... the stuff that shatters into sharp knife like shards on impact! I work with the stuff. My opinion... I will only use Lexan windshields for this puropse because Lexan bends far more before breaking. Acrylic is cheap in price compared with Lexan.

Wind bender knock off but not as sound. Look in to one love mine on a 1500 don't know about the look of one on an 1800. Very well made and very strong it's been through some hail and 70 MPH winds in fine fashion

I'd be afraid of those eyelet holes cracking over time... a little sun... a lot of vibration... acrylic by nature is very brittle,
