KTM 950/990 no buffet windscreen
 
This windscreen is shortened and laid back to speed up the airflow and send it overhead instead of dragging through like the stocker.. It is a huge improvement over the cut down stock rally style windscreen too. The angle of the rally screen is great for accomodating instruments , but the near vertical angle and narrow shape causes horrible buffeting and drag turbulence at higher speeds.
The design is also completely out of the way when riding off road and is flexible for improved safety..

this version still allows minimal wind protection and improved airflow
.....and it looks good too while cutting through the wind sport style instead of crashing through like the stock rally style

This sport short screen is crafted with the advantage of low resin to fiber reinforcement ratio using a rubber top infusion mold which eliminates air entrapment to increase strength and assures proper curing of the resin. It incorporates high flexibility Iso blend infusion resin with UV protection for the highest quality part possible .
Extremly strong, flexible, lightweight with excellent fit and finish

In Gloss Black , black chemical resistant gelcoat with carbon fiber/ fiberglass $130 + shipping
In all carbon fiber , gem quality carbon under glass with UV resistant resin $ 210 + shipping

In gloss black gelcoat
tough durable chemical resistant finish
this part is only 2-3 mm thick and very flexible with a later of carbon fiber to add additional strength

in Carbon Fiber , fabricated using 3 layers of 2x2 twill carbon fabric in clear UV resitant resin , tough durable chemical resistant finish , flexible and strong

These parts are fabricated using the best materials and methods in the industry and are the result of a lot of research and consulting with industry professionals to be sure it is done right . No shortcuts or cheap materials used. Each part takes about 6 hours of careful craftsmanship to cast .cut and trim, and materials are expensive at about $45 in resin and fabric each

better windscreen
 
Very nice product, thanks D2D, I'm happy with mine, much smoother, with the stock screen I felt like I was being beat by seagulls.

Thanks OTR
amazing how being laid back a little can make such a difference
and you got one of the first experimental ones , the latest ones are much better quality ,the New ones are UV resin and infusion , the early ones were vacuum bagged epoxy resin
Glad to hear it is holding up OK !

Black Gloss please........
 
PM sent.......Thanks

Looks great. Very interested.....would love to see a pic of the cockpit area behind the screen. And perhaps with a measurement of the height above the stock dash.......how much room is available for a GPS?

Thanks!!!!:freaky

Here is a picture of the typical backside , (carbon or black). straight up line off dash panel yields 2 3/4" or 70mm to 10mm at front
Not a lot of room for a GPS but the air sure is smoother coming over the top
the backside is a fine textured surface carbon

It took me 3 months of failures and successes to finally figure out how to do this but now I made it happen
I rode for several years with a hacked up stock screen that I cut and layed back to speed up air and stop the buffetting of the stock rally style windscreen
I started out to just make one for myself but when I showed it around I got a lot of requests so I made some more
the first ones I was making with a crude basic mold and they took about 30-40hours of post finishing to fix all the bubbles that normnally happen with vacuum bagging. So I had to stop and regroup and devise another method if I was to suceed
so I set out to do resin infusion which produces a flawless part with no entrapped air ' the resin is pulled into the reinforcement fabric by vacuum
I built the mold after making a positive plug using tooling gelcoat and special resin made for molds
there is a careful process to make the mold
the first one I made got ruined when I didnt cure it enough, got the part stuck to the mold and I had to start over and make a new mold

http://173.74.246.28/ktmtalk/photoga...s/DSC00147.JPG


I had a materials supplier make the tooling, a rubber top for the infusion
it took weeks of failures to finally find a process to make gem quality carbon fiber parts now I have a dependable process and cut the time down to just a few hours to make a part
the part is made by carefully making a sandwich with the fiber material , then a perfect vacuum is held with no leakdown , then the resin is infused through the fabric, here it is going in
http://173.74.246.28/ktmtalk/photoga...ds/ACF5C3F.JPG

when it comes out of the mold it looks like this
http://173.74.246.28/ktmtalk/photoga...s/DSC00330.JPG

after the part is properly cured , it takes about an hour of skilled craftamnship to cut and shape and polish
http://173.74.246.28/ktmtalk/photoga...s/DSC00277.JPG

Easy
now hopefully I can sell a few now to recoup some material costs

Here are some more being cut and polished

Nice work, D2D! As a guy who spent many, many years doing this for aerospace, etc, these look nice. RFI certainly has it's place. :D

Rootkiller 12-06-2012 10:17 PM

Great work, My wife and I ride 950/990's and will be trying this out:deal

thank you sir, that means a lot
I suppose you appreciate the difficulty , I have heard even pre-preg and autoclave also takes some post finish

R&R4adv 12-13-2012 08:49 PM

New screen
 
I have recieved my screen and it looks fantastic, great vendor to deal with and great international postage, took 11 days to Australia concidering the time of year thats great.. Yet to go for a test ride will post pictures and report later.

Rootkiller 12-14-2012 12:13 PM

Just got mine also,Great looking screen.
I will get a chance to try it next week!

procycle 01-05-2013 01:40 PM

Now that you have the process down is there any chance you would add a taller version?

Rodknee 01-10-2013 05:23 PM

just got my screen from mr. dust, and it is awesome! excellent fit and it looks great! thank you sir! :freaky
