Help ordering windshield.

I'm trying to order a Memphis Shades and every site sets me up with a 9 inch cut out for my 900 custom. Wouldn't the 7 inch be the one i want, seeing as that's the size of my headlight?

Hey Gennaro, I kinda thought the same way as you...but I went ahead and ordered the "Speed Demon" with the recommended 9" cutout...it does leave about an inch gap between the headlight and the shield...not bad or anything...

I believe the thinking is that some air should get under the front lip of the shield so that there is not a huge negative air pressure area right behind the shield...I dunno, but the 9" cutout looks fine on my Custom.
