shorty windshield

Looking for a shorty windshield for my 2015. All I can find are about the same as stock. I'm looking for something like 4-6" shorter than stock.
Any suggestions would be great
thanks

You'll get the best results if you cut your own. Either cut your existing windscreen or buy a spare and trim it. Search for my posts about it. I have pics of the windscreen I cut down along with step by step instructions.

If you have any questions, just give me a shout.

I don't think you will be able to buy a short screen, you will have to get a stock screen and cut it down yourself.

Here is a shot with my cut down stock screen. It just about covers the gauges in the lowest position. I find it is nice as long as you don't go faster than 55MPH otherwise it gets noisy for me.

Real easy to do yourself. You can even do it a few inches at a time to see if you like it. I made a line with blue painters tape and used a fine blade on a jig saw on slow speed. Took my time cutting it. Then wet sanded with fine sand paper. It was nice for the summer. Unfortunately bike in the shop with a failed throttle body servo going on three weeks.

I've cut windshields twice, and it's not hard to do. I did my Valkyrie and a friend's FZ6.
Cover both sides with blue painters tape, not the whole thing but the area that you're going to cut.
Use the top edge of the old windshield as a template to mark the curve and draw out the cut line.
Using a dremel or similar, cut slowly and take your time. Sand it smooth. It's not rocket science.
