Windshield Adjustment
« on: April 11, 2019, 12:22:18 AM »
Going to try moving the right side windshield hinge out a few inches to cover my throttle hand from getting wet and protect it from cold wind during the Fall months. It lowers the top of the windshield an inch or two but I think it will work for me. Only had to drill one hole, used the ignition box screw for the other. It creates a wider space at the bottom, so I'll try a piece of pool noodle to fill the gap and block the wind.

That's what I wanted to do with my new windshield last week, but it covered part of the registration, which is a big no no.
I'll have to think about your idea, but maybe in the Fall.

Same reason I never mounted them wider, covers registration.

Luckily, I applied my registration numbers/letters as far forward as they would go on that side. If I order 2 new registration stickers and apply it closer to the OH, it will all show. I'll need to get rid of the pool noodle too, maybe come up with a different idea. I would definitely have room if I moved the whole placard up 2 inches, but would rather not go to all that trouble. I wanted to move the windshield forward more but the Navigation lights are in the way, and I would have had to move the placard. I have options!   ;D

I decided to just move the registration forward a few inches, less hassle than ordering new stickers. While I was at it, moved the trailer License plate to the fender. Noticed the license plate bracket was cracked and was hanging on by a thread.

The height is lower and it looks and is off-center but it should keep my hand from getting cold and keep the occasional spray off. Should help on rivers like the Mahoning that have a lot of bends and down trees to navigate around. Lakes and straight rivers, Iíll just use the cruise control.  ;)

My plate just broke off, gone forever. Iíll probably put it in the same spot, but Iíll get a rubber mount.
