There is a thread below this one - "High Rise Handlebars" which should adress one of your issues.my friend eldon has a 09 spyder and loves it, but the windshield is to low
and the handlebars are to low and to far forward. he is 80 years old and
does not like to lean forward so much. he did not feel confortable on his
yamaha royal star venture anymore (they are heavy,i have one) and he does not use a computer, so i told him i would try to find out how changes could be made. thanks tt.
Regarding the windscreen.If you follow the US forums you will find that no other subject seems to bring so many different opinions than that windscreens.
In my opinion we are all different sizes and have different riding positions so for a windscreen to be "all things to all people" it really needs to be completely adjustable in angle and height.
There are many manufacturers but only 2 to my knowledge make adjustable Spyder Screens. CHAD is made by Industries 7 in Canada, I have tried these and they are OK. However I now run A Madstad screen. Mark from Madstad Engineering in the US has just released a very reasonably priced Spyder windscreen system that is adjustable to the extreme . This idea is not new as Madstad have sold thousands of their adjustable bracket sets for the Suzuki V-Strom over the past few years and people swear by them.
I thorough;y recommend Madstad RoboBrackets- see also Australian Spyder Ryders
