Can someone recommend a good windscreen for a 2009 C50 preferably with the quick release someone previously mentioned?

I think I've decided on my windshield. This will be for my 2008 M50:

I like the Memphis Shades **** Cat Windshield --- Gradient Black

Memphis Shades Hell Cat Windshield - Cruiser Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore

However, I notice that it will rest about a foot (A FOOT!!!!) above the light. Hmmm, will this not look too odd?? What if I add a little "tool kit" in between to hide the empty space?

Any thots? I want this bike to keep its lean mean M50 appearance, but ...

A foot doesn't sound good. Did they ship the correct brackets?

nope, i don't have the stuff yet --- I'm looking at a picture of an M50 with this windshield on it. I'd love to post it, but since it's not my bike, I don't have the rights to publish the pic. I'll do s'more research - maybe the owner of the pic I'm looking at just chose do install it that way? I dunno - that's why I'm asking if any of you can shed s'more light.

Here is a link to a m50 with the Hellcat, not sure why you think it will be a foot above light, if it is, something is wrong.
M50 with sports saddle bag and hellcat

As far as rights of posting a pic, if it was posted a forum, like this site, you have no rights over the image any longer. If the image is part of a image house/stock photos, such as Getty image, selling for publishing, then you are correct on not posting. But I will guess that is not the case.

The pic is from Kijiji - someone is posting their bike to sell, and i asked for more pics of the front so I could see his windshield.

Your link shows a totally different positioning of the windshield than the pic I'm looking at - wow, what a difference! Your link shows a very cool sports bike positioning, while his picture shows a cruiser bike positioning. Not sure if that's a good explanation, but wow what a difference!!!

beautiful! THAT's exactly how I want my bike to look. I have no clue why this other pic I'm staring at looks so wrong! The gap between the bottom of the shield and the top of the light is a foot (well k, maybe it's 10 inches! but just too huge a gap). I'm loving the look of your pics! Thank you for sending me the link. I sure appreciate it!

This is from a 130 mile ride I did last week.
