I just bought a Spitfire screen yesterday. I didn't have much of a chance to mess with angles but the way I installed it worked out pretty good. The biggest thing I noticed was that it reduced the wind blast to the body and I'm not gripping hte bars as tight at speed, that should help alot!

Hey cee bailey guys.... take the foam from a crossbar pad, drill a couple small holes in correct spot and ziptie the pad to the top of the windscreen. That thing works great but the angle makes it downright dangerous. I've bounced my helmet off of it a bunch and it would just take a minor over the bars crash to crush your larynx(sp?) on that thing. Cool thing is that the pad also deflects more wind upward and away. Thing is even smoother now. doesn't look to bad either. I'll post pics of mine soon.

This is my modified Spitfire. I cut the sides and moved the mounting posts closer together. I had been experimenting with the original Spitfire size and found that in a heavy crosswind at highway speeds it acted more like a wing and would throw the front end all over the place. I really like this setup. Now all I need is a Corbin and I can ride all day.
