The OEM windshield has a coating on it, not sure it would tint if you are thinking of that.

The Bike has an after market windshield I thing something Bailey. Just thought it may look better tinted...
Pull the windshield take it to a window tint guy and have it installed on the inside of the windscreen.
Just thinking it may look nice.

I bought a lightly tinted Cee Bailey. I think it looks great. I rarely look thru it so it's not an issue. At night even lightly tinted makes things difficult.
