I've got a 2002 SV650 that I'm probably going to sell or part out soon. And I also have a 2003 SV650S that I'm turning into a sport touring machine with hard luggage.



Very nice - the copper ones are the best

I recently got my hands on an interesting looking windscreen. Here are some pics I'd like to share -->.

In original naked condition:



With the new windscreen:

I am curious, with a smaller windscreen such as that, does it only really help if you leaning on the tank?

Nice Naked though.

believe it or not, that wind screen is pretty large. bigger than the one i have. you don't have to be hugging the tank to feel the benefits.

I am 6'1" and the screen does not help much in the upright position. I like the looks tho :)

Is that seriously 20 USD? What sort of quality is it? It looks fantastic. How is it mounted?

Yes it is about $20 shipped. There is no mounting hardware included, but it can be easily bought at a hardware store ($7-8).

I used the following on each side:
40mm M8 x 1.25 stud
Washer & Hex nut on the inside of the headlight
Washer & Jam nut on the outside
Mounted the screen over that
And finished it off with a washer and acorn nut

Looks like a nice and neat mount. Is it sturdy enough with only those two points? I'd be wary of it pivoting at higher speeds, but maybe it deflects air so that it doesn't move?

It is mounted sturdy with those two mount points, but the plastic itself is a little flimsy.

I've run it to about 80mph on the freeway and the mount points don't move, nor does the screen pivot or rotate. The plastics screen does vibrate a little, but at my height 6'1" I don't feel it.
