Just got around to looking at Powerlet. http://www.powerletproducts.com/shop...12/410#formtop

Exactly what I needed. Thanks, Garry!

I'm now considering a Corbin but would love to have something to compare to. Would anyone with a Corbin mind measuring their seat height for me? A stocker and another Renazco would be great, too for comparison.

My suspension setup is damn near perfect. I've never wanted to mess with it, but may have to follow Bob's suggestion.

Just an inch would be nice!!!!
I'm running the Corbin. I'm not near the bike at the moment so can't give you a mesurement. It seems to me that it's at least .5" lower. I say this because the last time I put the stocker back on I nearly fell over. Went to put a foot down and the ground wasn't there. The actual height may only mesure .5" lower but the effect may be somewhat greater, the Corbin has a bit more inset for your legs. No comparison in comfort, I can ride all day (12+hrs) without any butt burn with the Corbin. You may want to ask them to build the seat a little lower for you.

Yes, still have the same screen on; haven't come up with a reason to change it (or even take it off ). I have one on the SE as well.

brake squeal gone

I noticed my chain looked alittle loose,so when i adjusted it one side was off a bit,1/8 maybe more.I used the pin that sticks out of a micrometer[float measure on head2wind dvd for jetting] to measure axle block to back of swingarm.
I have not washed my bike or done anything else to it but I noticed it wasn't squealing.IT WAS TERRIBLE BEFORE!!Now all I hear is the front,very light.I hope this helps.My 2006 950 sm now has 1,200 miles.
If it starts again the first thing I will check is alignment.

THANKS WALTER,I will buy that one also,I noticed from the start that you weren't afraid to spend some money .If you will not even try another one it must be pretty good.clay

I've tried both the tall laminar lip and 690 screen on my 950sm. I prefer the 690 screen for two reasons, looks and less turbulence. The laminar lip does reduce wind pressure against the chest slightly more than the 690 screen.

Aeronaut - when you buy the 690 screen does it come with mounting hardware or do I need to order anything additional?

(I'm not Aeronaut but...) Comes with everything. Ignore the template and use the screen to mark the holes. The 690 mask has a different curvature than the SM/SE.

I mounted mine as high as possible, but not being very tall (5'8"), I wonder if I would have been better served mounting it lower. I'd like to try the low Laminar Lip screen sometime.

I've used the Pretender, the tall LL and the 690 screen, still have the last two, but I really prefer the bike with nothing at all. Every screen I've tried comes with a price - turbulence.

Thanks Chuck. The last bikes I had (mid to late 70's) were all "naked" but I think a screen might make long road trips a bit more comfortable.
