Ok, I'm finally back after getting in a decent ride, the beginning of the week was jacked up by a remote client site that had some major issues. Sorry for the delay in the post.
Overall, I am very happy with the windshield. It bolted up easily and looks nice on the bike. It's not a quick release, but you can bolt/unbolt the screen in less than 5 minutes...in all reality it should take less than 3 after the first time it's been on. I positioned the screen, so it attaches about 2mm below the top triple clamp. The screen comes with nice clear protective strips to put on the forks to protect them from getting scratched up.
I have to say that I am pretty happy with the screen, as it punches a nice sized hole in the air without being too large. If I was going to be doing major touring, I’d want a bigger screen…but then again if I was gonna do major touring I wouldn’t have bought a 900 Custom.
Given your description of what you’re looking for the factory mid height screen would certainly not be a bad choice, but you may want to look for a screen 2” or so taller. However, if you rode with the mid height screen, I suspect you would not take it off even for around the town riding…it’s a good height for an all-around screen and doesn’t ruin the lines of the bike.
