no the bracket are different. it uses the same threaded holes but the bracket is totally different. You may be able to find some directions online that would show it better. I no longer use or have the screen.

The Madstad can be removed in about a minute, or adjusted down and out of the way. There are four anti-vibration screws so you can put in a bag. But I'm not sure I'd ever do either.



You can see the adjustable rails on this one.

What size pelicans are those? What rack did you use? Can you show a picture from behind?

Vstream, You maybe correct with the most stable but not the best looking. It's probably the most functional but it does not match the styling of the bike and thats important.'Its got an odd sort of look on the bike. Out of place but still works.'I can see why some have choose it but i'll pass.

The Tiger 800 XC sort of has a kind of bird of prey look to it. With the Madstad it kind of morphs into a more woodpecker like design.

No shit, 350 bucks for a bit of shaped plastic and a mount.
