I just ordered the 5 Way Adjustable Vent for my Givi windshield only because after ridding a G/W that had one, on a very hot day, I knew there must be a way to cut and install it on my bike.
After talking to the Clearview people 3 times and all three times there response was honest and the same. "9 out of 10 people fail and end up buying a new windshield" from them.
I spent much time on line looking at people that cut down there Givi windshields and so I know that the cut can be made without ruining the screen.
Next week I find out if I am the 1 out of 10. wish me luck. affraid

I did it. The job turned out great. The whole project took about 3 and a half hr. I took some picture but don't know how to copying them on to this web site.
Went for a quick ride and noticed a a big difference in the noise around the helmet and could feel a lot of air blowing in through the center bottom of the windshield.
The vent was $80.00 and the 60 tooth blade used in my Dremel tool was $15.00.
I had, a heat gun and the Dremel so those don't count as far as price goes.
I did have to use 3-M two sided tape to take up a small openings after bending both pieces. chickendance

It's good to know you got the Clearview vent fitted without damaging the big Givi screen and were confident in your ability to do it, nice one. Smile

Thank you Sir. In a few hr. I will be going out with the Old Farts for our weekly ride and I will get a chance to see and feel the Clearview in action. Again, thank you for the tip on where to find it.
