A word of caution; don't rely on the included template for where to drill the holes. It is way off. Haven't had a chance to see how it does at speed yet.
Its nice to see this version of it (black mask & fender) + the enduro/SMC screen. I just got the 690SM version for my enduro, and appears to be a little wider & a little shorter? Anyways, I like the black headlight mask with that setup!

Does it help? I am looking for a screen for my 690E. It actually works well without a screen up to 65. It would be nice to take some of the wind off of the upper body at highway speeds. My old F650 Dakar with both the stock and Wunderlich screens had really bad head buffeting over 60. I ended up taking the screen off of the F650. I am concerned that I will see the same thing with the 690E.

Just finished 4 days at Big Bend and the new windscreen worked well. We had lots of windy days and the screen, though not all that high, significantly reduces the pressure on the upper body. I had no buffeting problems with either of the helmets I used during the ride (open faced MX with goggles and a full faced with visor up or down). Nothing but smooth air. I'm 6'4" and have a tall Renazco seat, but the windscreen seems to be well designed from an air flow point of view.

I'm using the 690SM one on my 690e, and like above poster said, it does relieve enough chest pressure to make a difference at highway speeds (not great, but enough). Have not noticed any buffeting (I'm 6'...).

DirtJack,

Thanks for the info. It is extremely helpful. It is great to get info from people actually using a product. Sounds like the screen for me.

They are Dual Star mirrors. Available from:

http://www.dual-star.com/index2/Equi...le_mirror1.htm

They work well for me. Good view under the arms, don't have to remove/move them for off road, and they don't vibrate.

Screen for 690E R?

Hi,

I've finally decided to go for a 690E, and most likely it will be the R.
Is there any good wind screen out there that fits as is on the R?

Couldnt decide on a windscreen. Saw this one laying on the floor covered with dust in the bargin room. Gave this refugee a second chance, paid $20.
Cleaned up and mounted... wind hits at the visor.
Should prolong the riding season.
Streamliner Spitfire.

I used a Spitfire for about 5000 miles and never had a problem. See:

The screen is now on a friend's XR650R going strong for about another 10K miles.

DJ, I have seen your bike before and it helped me decide to pickup the shield.
Ducking branches on trail my helmet contacted the screen a few times. When standing on the pegs I could almost lean against the screen.
The way the screen is now it can be raised 4 inches by changing the mounts.
All that got cut off were the lower corners, an inch or so off the sides and an inch-two off the top.
Went for the KTM trapazoid look. As it is so low, it doesnt get looked thru. It may get smoked, whited or KTM oranged.
I like the minimalistic look, wonder if how that will play in January.

Here is what I use now:



for some of the same reasons you cite. The touring windscreen keeps wind off the body and provides clean smooth air to the face and never seems to get in the way when I go down.

Been looking for this "KTM Hardparts" 690 Enduro windscreen online but can't seem to find it. Do they make or still sell it?

How about using one from the 690 supermoto? It looks like it's similiar and could be made to work.
