  7. Custom How To
    Hello, everyone! I purchased an '83 GL650 Interstate about two months ago, and while I love the bike, I'm just not loving that big, buzzy fairing, especially with how the windshield can cause serious visibility problems in humidity or rain. I have a Vetter Windstar fairing that I previously...

    Tremendously lighter with that exhaust off. I've got some LEDs and a chunkier tire for the back. Just a speedo and temp gauge up top, under a small fairing. Small fenders, most of the electrical hidden.
