Got a F4 shield. Got the +2 tinted size. So far I like it but it is tight moving the shield up or down

It may be a tad tight to move. I like my F-4 but wish it had the rake of the Tulsa.

The F4 +2 is the same thickness as the OEM windshield, so it should operate just about the same. Maybe he got one of the slides a little tight. When I get back, bring it over here and it should be a quick fix.

I'm sure you won't be sorry on that purchase. Very nice shield.
Like jackjohn said the tightness can be easily fixed. Also, I got soft velcro with mine. Takes a little while to seat in.

Maybe I should have posted this question over here.

I am having the same issue with a different brand shield and it appears to be an issue with how the bottom of the aftermarket windshield is molded. Needless to say at this point I am less than impressed with something that is supposed to be better than stock but is actually worse at this point.

I have a +2 tinted and it's tight too.. but it's the extra layer of velcro that makes it that way. So far I love it!

The F4 is quite a bit thicker than the OEM windshield. I installed a Honda OEM vent in place of the one that came with the F4, and I had to take my router and remove about 3/32 of material to get it to fit.
