The Dart flyscreen looks very nice and keeps flys off the front of the speedometer, but I didn't notice much change in wind protection from the naked bike. I will get a bigger screen for longer trips.
Use some petroleum jelly (vaseline) on the zippers. My BMW dry bag is the same and if I don't keep the zippers lubed can't even use them.
