2015-17 windscreen mod
Just read this modification to the stock windscreen on ADVRIDER.COM and was curious as to whether any of you have tried it? I've not gone out to look at the set-up, but these instructions are a little confusing. Any clarification would be appreciated.

Some have tried, myself included, raising the stock screen so the top-most stop is actually above the windscreen bracket (you'll need to loosen the adjustment knobs almost all the way,
and be mindful to keep the shims/washers in place, you'll see em).
The screen is plenty stable in this position and quiets things considerably for me around my helmet. Not perfect, but better.
It also allows slightly more air under the screen to benefit venting in the heat but not enough to ruin the protection in colder weather.
I run mine this way now and it's free
