Was thinking of removing my cowl and was wondering if It's noticeable while riding. Is it Harder to control or more wind to the body/face on the highway or handling or anything? Seems small enough not to but ya never know.

I think it is more a cosmetic cowl in keeping with the overall lines of the bike. My 2 cents worth.

I think it is mostly for looks.
it may tunnel some air away from you but very little.

taking it off wont make much difference in the way it handles unless you are going really fast

even then I doubt it'll make a noticeable difference.

if you add any kind of windscreen that will make a difference. the bike will handle differently especially at freeway speeds.

if you do install a taller windscreen, then be aware, especially around large vehicles such as 18 wheelers, the wind buffeting can be scarey, even violent at times.

I never ride close to those type of vehicles anyway, i'll either pass them or back off. whatever, just stay out of that wind turbulence.

Cool thanks guys! I think it's coming off then, get that more classic look I'm going for.
