Regarding Windsheilds

Postby grider » Thu May 02, 2013 7:09 pm



I have a 1983 Aspencade. I would like to cut a little off the top of the wind shield. Has anybody done this. I have trimmed aircraft wind shields but never a motorcycle. Any ideas on this would be appreciated. :

Have done it with other windshields. Fine tooth blade in a jig saw. Masking tape on the jig saw foot and on the windshield. Files and sandpaper to make it nice.
