Windshield reqs

Hi all

Looking to reduce some buffeting at speed and like the look of the cafe on a custom but would welcome opinions on the cafe vs shorty or other models.
Thanks all

For me, I like the OEM windshield adjusted up high. In addition, installing a set of lowers has almost eliminated buffeting completely.
I made my own for about $35.00 (not the best). There is a thread on here about how to make them. Some of these guys are very good with tools (theirs look awesome)! It is not diffucult for the average Joe. You just need a jigsaw, a drill, plexi-glass, tape, 4 rubberized clamps with associated screws, nuts and washers. But then again, my opinion is worth less than 2 cents. Good luck on your research.
