My new Screen!

Screens are expensive! Yes they are for what thy consist of. I'm a cheapskate when it comes to accessories.Mind you, if its cheap it also has to be reasonable quality, well today my cheap Chinese screen arrived. I ordered it on a whim,because it was priced at 29 (about $38) It's in light smoke.(I think its also available in black) It came with brackets, and you know what?, this is not bad at all. The brackets are sort of black powder coated and not flimsy,neither is the screen. If someone had shown me this on their bike I would swear it was a Puig, with the label off. All bolts etc were included and i started to fit it with misgivings.Would the brackets line up etc. An hour later i was done,(hey I'm an old guy!) So having harped on about it for long enough, here it is.

Its not the tallest screen in the world but, hopefully it will keep some of the wind off the body when doing short trips on the motorway (highway)

That looks quite nice and goes to show that not everything has to be expensive to be good. If it lasts two riding seasons you will have enjoyed it more than it cost, I would imagine. Well done.

Nice! I think I have the some one coming (ordered in the US, though). It was a gamble as there were no reviews, but this is my first bike and most aftermarket parts are just overpriced IMHO.

Wind screen looks good and I see it is available at Amazon Canada for about the same price.


Are those LED's on the front side of your bark busters?

Great choice of brand. Was looking into other parts they have to offer and right now their handguards are on my list of parts to get.

Excellent find for the price. Wouldn't imagine there is much difference in terms of quality when it comes to windscreens. Looks way better smoked.

Yes they are.They are white led running lights and amber indicators combined. They come on with the ignition. as you'd expect but with these, when you use either side indicator, that side white led goes out.That way the white and amber don't have to 'compete' so the amber is more visible.

That's not the case with mine. The white LEDs are running lights and come on with the headlight. The amber LEDs operate like normal indicators and actually run off the OEM indicator wiring. In AU the road law prohibits 2 sets of indicators that close to each other so the OEM indicators have been disconnected. I had the right indicator switch on in my photo, just had to time the shot
