I wonder it was anything to do with the earlier R models using the rubber bands to secure the mask ?
I had a eureka moment.... some have the brake cable behind the mask some have it going thru the mask , guess thats why.

Which is because on the 08/12/13 models they used the larger headlight, larger dash with tach which sits more forward, 09-11 uses smaller headlight with different shaped mask and dirtbike sized dash.

Think ill just order the R screen, move my lines behind the mask and graft it on somehow. Unless I can get a newer mask to fit ?

Trimming? Why?
I bought one last year, it fits without problems. Only problem was "conical" handlebar (clamps don't grip as they should) .
It's better but not perfect, it "takes wind" from chest, but the head stays "in stream".

Anyone know if this is available in the US? Even with the KTM touring screen, a long high speed ride is a good ab workout. Really feeling it this AM and I only rode about 150 miles on the highway this weekend. I really think that if there's a screen that can just cut the chest pressure down and not create a big buffet zone at the helmet, this bike could replace my beloved GSA. The GS has the high speed suspension and big dirt road thing down, but it's HUGELY demanding in the technical (but fun) and deep sand (not fun).

BTW, I rode my friends 650 Dakar BMW this weekend and it's a hoot - almost no chest pressure on the highway, very comfy body position, awesome and light feeling on the dirt and it can handle gobs of luggage weight. Seems like the perfect dirt tourer. If I can't get my 690E to work, that's the next bike for my stable. Never even considered it until I rode one.
