What brand windscreen do you have? It looks better then the OEM larger one Yamaha sells, which I have and don’t like.

Its the national cycle Vstream touring screen. Funny because I don't think I like it (too tall in the up position) and wish it was the OEM touring one. Trade maybe? Where are you located?

Try putting some spacers under the windshield motor bracket to tilt it back an inch, you'll find an improvement.

Yep, I had to have blue. Being the 1st year for gen 3 didn't hurt either

How do you like the Laam seat, since it wasn't built per your specifications?

Previous owner was my height 5 11 but a bit more heavier. Probably 200 lbs vs 185 my weight. So not much difference. Rode the bike for 1.5 hours straight on the day I got it and was comfortable as can be. I came from versys 650 stock seat. Love the versys but I needed to stand up 45 minutes into my ride.

I would say so far, the custom seat is a big plus. Not sure I would have ever changed the stock seat but having this upgraded luxury is for sure nice
