Changed oil, filter and slant of windshield

This morning I changed oil & filter and replaced with Amsoil 20W50 Cycle oil and a new Wix filter.Then I removed windshield and drilled some holes to change the slant of the shield to match the angle of the forks. Took it out to see if it made a difference and I'm glad to report that it's better now. Buffeting is not gone entirely but much better than before.

I did the windshield slant change 2 months ago and am glad with the air flow now. Do to the turning you can only move the bolt hole 1/2 inch. I am still working on a mod that should reduce the airflow around the gas tank without adding more drag to the bike.
