btw - I wouldn't recommend trying this again. It is now one of the fastest ways I know to get to meet the police in DC. Glad he let me go.
Yours may be taller...but mine is higher.

That's why they don't make a black M&M, too slow to digest.

Try a Duck beak

[QUOTE=jaumev;18178532]Its a brico using this part from Touratech



and adding a piece from a grill from a kitchen ventilator…. My wife is not very happy…
I find “unfinished” this part of the bike, I don’t like the look of the horn, brake pipes… But I’m not sure about this thing, do you like it?

[/Quote

Hola Jaumev ... try a Duck beak (Pico de pato) á la BMW like this one ...



or this one adapted for the OEM crashbars ...



Saludos,
Thagua

Hola Thagua
I like the Yamaha design without the duck beak. It seem as all the “adventure” bikes must have a beak, but I think this part could be better finished that it is in the ST.
But I like your’s
Hasta luego!

Give your idea of a better 'beak' and I will try to do it ... I think the purpose of the beak is to make your front end go down when on speed (over 150 km/hr) making the bike more stable ... also hides all the ugly wires, hoses and horn.

Thagua, I like the look of the beak, it fills the void under the headlight. Keep up the good work!

Regards, Paul
