Tried to find a better windshield than the stock one so I could get more protection from the wind. Tried several but liked the looks, size, and shape of the zero gravity. With it in the top position the wind still hit right at the top of my face shield which caused a lot of wind noise making long trips unbearable. The windshield also fluttered quite a bit. Thought about adding one of the MRA x -creen spoilers or buying another windshield with the spoiler already attached but they are very expensive. Somehow I needed to add 2 to 3 inches to the height of the windshield to get the air going above my face shield. I finally found the perfect solution – no cost and excellent results. Instead of the screws going into the top attachment holes of the windshield, I let the windshield rest on top of them which raises the angle which in turn gets the air going to the top of my helmet. No more windshield flutter, no more loud wind noise, no buffeting, and a very pleasant ride. ImageUploadedByMO Free1440648692.318175.jpg ImageUploadedByMO Free1440648709.926353.jpg [

I hope this will help anyone with similar concerns.

That's crazy. You'll get into serious buffeting problems like that... If anything, you want it more leaned back instead.

After over a thousand miles and up to triple digits there have been no bad side effects at all. Absolutely no buffeting, much less wind noise, no windshield flutter at all, and no big side gusts of wind that have been greater than my forward speed. It does not flop back and forth.
My point was:
1. Cost is zero
2. Benefits all positive for me
3. If it doesn't work for you, then put it back - no harm no foul.
4. It is working great for me - haven't encountered a down side yet and saved me a lot of money trying to get the same results.

How tall are you E327? Just out of curiousity. I am wanting to order a new windshield just haven't fully figured out which one I want to get
