    I have a 08 non-Exec 650 and I have researched this forum and can not find anyone who has removed their Givi windshield, drilled new holes and re-installed it to make it higher. Has anyone done this? I did it on my last bike (large cruiser) and it worked fine. Like a lot of other riders, there is too much buffering and noise on my helmet. This is the first time I couldn't find an answer to a problem on this site. It seems like EVERYTHING is covered in the threads, but not this question.

    Also, on another note, I just finished a four day trip around the Olympic Peninsula and couldn't be more happy with my scooter. I averaged 53 MPG for the trip which included a trip up Hurricane Ridge where I kept up with the fastest bike in our group. Twice I got 60 MPG. I tell other riders that it is the best kept secret around.

    I have a question about posting: I posted a message on 07-05-16 about raising my Give windshield and I can't see that it was posted. I can see the post below, on this page, but not on the forum. Am I doing something wrong. I don't know if this message will be posted either.

    Loose Bar End. Hello, I bought a 08 Burgman 650 recently and no matter how tight I tighten the weighted handlebar end on the left side of my handlebars, it will not stay tight and comes out from the handlebar. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    I'm trying to send a message to Dave_J but do not have 15 posts yet, so I can't send a private message. Dave, this is Johnthebusman or just plain old John. Thank you for answering me about what "power ports" are, in your last post to me. The way you explained how you hooked up your electrical was just what I was looking for. However I have a problem - I should have printed it out because now I can't find it anywhere in the forum. I have searched your posts and mine but no luck. Can you send it to me or re-post it?
    I see that you are from Auburn WA. I live in Ferndale, just north of Bellingham. Thanks a lot.
