WTB 1500 Nomad windscreen, 1-2" short

I'm looking for a stock-style windshield for a 2000 1500 Nomad, but I'd like one 1-2" shorter than stock. Mine's at lowest setting, which is great when I start riding. After half-hour or so, when I start slouching, the top edge is exactly middle of my forward view. I know I can cut mine, but I don't feel so confident about getting it right

Thanks!

I buy my windshields from these guys. Happy with them. Order the size you want. Stock windshield is 18 1/2 inches. They have all sizes.

Thanks, I'll keep them in mind. I'm hoping to find a shorter used one to try for a while first, before spending money on a new one and (possibly) not liking it. The one on my bike is near mint, so I'm reluctant to cut and experiment

Go to the hardware store get yourself some clear acrylic sheet. Then experiment all you want without fear.
