Lightbulb Homemade Windshield for KLR 650 2006

I recently made a windshield for $10 plus the cost of a heat gun.
I went to Home Depot and got some non yellowing, safety
Glass panel for $10 plus tax. Same thickness as the oem
windshield, my new windshield is now 10" in height with the added curve
to the top of the windshield (about an inch of the top heated and
moved forward towards the front tire, like it is on the oem) with a little
modification i made it 10" tall by 12 1/2" wide. We will see how it rides soon
and give an update.

I've been considering using a heat gun to heat the Kawasaki Tall windscreen that I've got on Chaos to give it a little bit of a curve upward / forward where it flares out to the sides. My hope is that it will raise up the airflow just a little bit more from over my head.

I gave mine twice the curve the oem windshield. It worked out just fine no cracking, no nothing.

i did upload some on my profile if you all want to check it out. still a work in progress like sanding and buffing because of the tools i used to modify it. but it will all be somewhat nice looking for a homemade jobby. (one of my first mods)

It's for spammers. Just post ten quick posts. They're free electrons.
