I think the gap helps to stop dust from coming in behind you. We rode all day Sunday with the windshield up and folded down and no dust to speak of.

How big of a gap does the o.e.m. Windshield have? Can split foam pipe insulation fill the gap? Or maybe a metal filler bracket that is profiled to fit the roof with a nice, flat edge, with a weather strip, for where it meets the windshield.

On my install, there is a two inch gap at the top. There is a 1/4 inch gap at the bottom.

So much for future fully enclosed when all the 3rd party kits come out.

My dealer got me a windshield but after seeing that much gap, not sure I'll get it now. :(
