Lowering and raising windscreen height while riding
« on: April 08, 2018, 03:43:52 PM »
Is there an easy way to lower and raise the windscreen while riding? I use mine on the low setting at all times except on the motorway, when I put it into the tall position.

I find this quite difficult to do, is there an easy method or aftermarket lever I can install?

Nothing as far as I know to make things easier to raise and lower whilst riding. Happy to be proven wrong though.
If your not going to thrash it leave it in the garage !!

Here is your solution - looks a bit like a forklift control lever though

I need to return some videotapes.

That is so clever, I feel obligated to purchase. 

Except that I won't because it looks silly.  And silly is not allowed on this forum.  It's very serious.

I don't condone taking both hands off the bars--I prefer to use my feet to raise the screen.
