Could it be the wind coming between the tank and windshield ??... Is there room to adjust the shield down some to make the space smaller ??
Yes, I love the way the windshield covers my hands... It's amazing the difference, with and without the windshield. Takes about 30 seconds to take it off, so sometimes if it get real hot out, it's nice to be able to take it off for more air flow.
I also know that on my bike, if I put a real large bag of Cheetos above the headlight between the windshield supports it also cuts the airflow down, and very handy if you get the munchies...
Seriously, I hope you can get the windshield tweaked to your liking.. I have seen fork mounted deflector panels that mount on either side to cut down the wind flow too...But not for the 500... Unless you bought parts "A LA Carte" and mounted them.
Good Luck and Ride Safe...
