Re: window tint

check your laws, here in ohio were allowed no tint on the front, 50% on the driver and passenger windows and as dark as you want on all the others

Re: window tint

I have 5% on my back windows over the factory tint and 20% on my two fronts and i like it you can't see that good backing up at night that is the only thing i don't like about it.

Re: window tint

20% should get you close to the rear windows, I have 35% and its only a few shades lighter, but thats also with the windshield letting through a lot of light.

Re: window tint

20 on the fronts will match your rear. If it were me I'd go 5% all the way around. Thats what I have on mine. I got a tint ticket last weekend but the tint will stay either way I am not riding without it.

Re: window tint

I have 20% on the front, 5% around the back windows and the back glass, and a 5% "sun visor" across the front windshield. 3M is the best way to go for tint IMO ....

HA-HA!

I would just go with 20%. It matches the factory well IMO.

Re: window tint

My tint read 4% on the sheriff's meter with all the windows down in my truck on a sunny day. 3m is good tint but if you can find a place that uses Suntek its even better!
