DIY windshield riser 2007 Versys

Recently bought my Versys and find that the windshield is not tall enough, wind hits my helmet around the forehead and makes it shake like crasy.

So, being a cheap bastard, I decided to try build risers to see if it would help.

Found parts in a TV wall mount box I had lying around. Did not have to modify anything, other tham buying bolts and nuts.

It lifted the windshield about 3 inches, and works great! Just tried it, wind now passes just above the helmet so no more shaking. Very happy with this little modification. I know it's an older model, but Im sure I'm not the only one riding an older model here...

Here are a few pics.

And you are now able to undo the tank fairings without having to take of the windscreen first.

my wife too. but then again, when she asks me to repair something, i go dig through the old bucket. the bucket was my dad's and half the old bolts and pieces were my dad's too, which I've added to over the years. the bolt securing the knob on her desk drawer recently broke. i made sure she knew where i got the replacement bolt from !!!
