Cutting them down is not difficult, if you have a Dremel tool. I did my last one on my 1500, but do be careful not to cut it down too low, which may cause turbulance. Mine was so badly scratched by the previous owner that I had to cut it for safe riding.

If you put masking tape over the screen at the level you think might be right, make sure you can see over it with view down the road at about 40'. Adjust the tape as necessary, then using the Dremel cutting disk, work slowly easing the blade through the plastic. Having done the deed, any rough edges can be smoothed with wet and dry.

Like Exavid, I have just gone for the Cee Bailey option and am very happy at the moment with the 4" over size and looking through a clear screen.

However, as he said, it isn't easy to make them taller again. Out of necessity I cut my last one down, but to be frank, I over did it, and the buffeting was bad. Take a little off, if in doubt, and take more if necessary. I would assume that the manufacturers make the screens to deflect wind and rain to the best advantage, so cutting down must change them, so be prepared for a little more wind, ( if you get my drift!!)
