Fitting an SMT screen on a 950SM?
Not sure who could best answer this but thought I would ask anyways..any thoughts on how difficult it would be to mod he tall Givi 990smt screen to fit the 950SM headlight?

Looking at the picture it looks like it could go either way..

Calsci screen

NOT the best looking but if this could mean a wind free cockpit..I am interested..although subjectively i think it would look worse with the 950 SM(R) headlight shape?.. The feedback on it is the most consistently great of the bunch..

Someone in the UK tinted one and i think it looks pretty good..

the shape could be good to play around with..

lukeinlondon 01-08-2013 10:26 PM

hmm aeroflow

You can also use a ktm690r screen:
KTM Part Number(s): 75008065044

Assembly is as follows:

1. Paste your whole cockpit except your lamp with painting tape;
2. Hold the glass at the right height, pushing it against the shell so that all four holes are flat against the base pressed on.
3. Mark the holes on the painters tape with a felt pen. It is important for the glass as high as possible to assemble. The top 2 holes sit with me about 1cm below the upper edge of the coaming. This is important because the lower holes in this way, exactly above the mounting bracket which are located on the rear part of the fairing located. Measure this several times carefully, so that he sits in the middle and at the right height. For this I have 4 or 5 times removed of the bowl from the counter, the 4 screws from the top cover counter to loosen.
4. The scary part .... You stand with the drill in your hand for a virgin nice cockpit section .... for drilling with 4mm, then 6.8 and finally 10mm.Ik have first made ​​the top 2 holes and each hole after the window for monitored to determine that I was not the lead.
5. Removing paint tape.
5. Install the 4 rubber "Threaded Inserts" and then the window with the screws and washers securing.
6. Attaching the counter plate.
7. Drive it.

My '07 SM with a winter add-on screen. 5'11" . . . I have been playing with the angle . . . It works best with the same angle as the forks. Clean air . . . No buffeting . . . Easy to adjust or remove.

This is the best angle for me:

and it looks like you have a little screen behind it?

lukeinlondon 01-12-2013 12:38 PM

15 might not be tall enough for me..may look for something like this

17inch tall..the 690 screen is 9 inches tall

unless i could get that 15inch to start at the top of my 690 screen? does it work like that?

mcmann 01-12-2013 12:51 PM

Yes, it sits on top of my summer 690 screen. I just lowered it one inch to reduce some helmet noise. I would not want a taller over shield.

With 690 screen:

lukeinlondon 01-12-2013 01:04 PM

so the 'slip' is mounted half way up your summer screen for better height?

Yep. Plan B . . . Get a Laminar Lip:
