Just getting in a new switchblade windshield for my 03 1800 VTX Retro this weekend. Does anyone have any hints or words of advice about installing one? I dont want to mess up my new X.

Just make sure before you tighten the mounting brackets turn the bars to make sure you don't dent your tank. If in the wrong position, the round buttons WILL DENT your tank. Just keep them loose and slowly turn the bars than make your corrections( about 3 /16ths to a 1/4in. gap between the tank and the buttons is about right. Good luck and enjoy the switchblades, I love mine !
Glad I could help, I almost dented mine too ! I go to Big Falls bar on RT. 7 quite a bit, maybe we'll hook up and have a brew :beer3: . You were looking for a reliable mechanic , try Team Machine at 9505 Philadelpia Rd. in Rosedale. Stormin' Norman does all the work on my bike including all servicing. He dyno'ed my baby and she certainly ROCKS :twisted: . He races bikes so he knows what he's doing. Does all his own machining and fabricating. I've known him for 3 years and trust him completely. Try him out, you'll be happy. Bigk.
