installed my windshield(midnite) on my bike the other day and decided tint is the way to go , local tint shop says that plastic cannot be tinted due to flex . Anyone have any experience or options or used the spray stuff with sucess ?

Can you not buy a tinted one? Or did you originally think that clear was the way to go?

I've used paint on windscreens before to black them out, but never the tinting stuff. If you got the boulevard screen then I see no problem with using the film. I assume the screen is fairly rigid and it is short so even in the wind it should not flex that much. If you go with the spray on stuff, just remember to spray the inside NOT the outside ;D

clear is the only option -I got the 17 inch removable cruising shield with the black frames ,it does look sharp but would be better with tinting .,and I don't want to regret making a bad decision of wrong tinting material

Flat Black Paint of good quality will do the trick, but on inside as advised in previous post! Make sure it is clean of any wax or dirt of course.

yes, the paint is only for the short boulevard
Thanks Deja! I missed that they have 17" shield. Would be to much flex and also limit visibility.

I was told by a local tinting shop that the tint will not adhere to the polycarbonate. There are some products out there that allow you to spary on tint, but I'm leery to use it after talking to a guy at AutoZone that said it was sh!t and said we'd do better with paint. I was impressed since this meant he would not make a sale. I love finding honest people who are actually looking for their customer's best interest.

That is Rare! Most sales people push for a sale and don't care.
