bigkuri, we have the 690 screen and love it, I folded up some real simple supports which I have tested to 196 speedo km/hr and they work mint, will swing a pic up after.

Style points are not high but simple engineering that works are .

Congrats, and sorry. Speaking from experience, you're going to need about $4500 in additional spending money. I see so many farkles in your future.

Thanks -

It's pretty solid with what it has.

The side stand relocator is done.
Already has the Safari Tank.
Suspension was lowered by previous owner. I may put it back to stock.
Not crazy about Monster Energy Drink stickers, but I can live with them for now.


What I need:
I ordered larger foot pegs already.
I want to get a center stand.
Also want some dirt tires. K60's are nice, but I want dirt.
After that, I may get some armor for bits that are subject to abuse on the trail.

Otherwise, I am happy with it as it sits. I am going to keep it simple and mean. I have a BMW R1150GS for long rides or road trips, and that is farkled out with bags and such.

Looking good

What screen is that? Point me at thread if covered elsewhere. I recently took off the 690 screen that was bolted to the front, as it shook around so much it was disturbing - that front plastic headlight surround is not that strong!

hi man
it's the PUIG screen for 690.
the front plastic(plexi)is not so strong,but enough to help against stones form bikes in front of me

Well that's a direct solution! I like it. Will have a think about supports. Cheers TMK -appreciated :)
