Not as yet and now working away for a week. Will try and get some sorted when hme again
Most 10mm mirrors will replace the stockers, with the major exception of mirrors that are for Yamaha applications. Folding types (Ken Sean and some KTM's) are a good choice for bikes that see more off-road action, as they can quickly be moved inwards where they are less vulnerable.
If you want to keep your stock mirrors, there are extenders available that will place the mirrors further outwards, improving the rear view.
I'm with you, rivercreep. Just the right amount of protection and it never gets in the way. I got mine from Twisted Throttle.
stock headlight & fairing
stock back fender
sumo front fender
no side covers
Has anyone used one of these from ProCycle?
Nice price at $78.95
Figured I'd add a few pics of my Spitfire for comparison. The only gripe I have about it is the mounting brackets. However, with patience and trial & error, its not terribly difficult to find a good mounting spot - even with a SE bar, crossbar and all.
The height of it as shown keeps all the wind pressure off my chest and redirects it just at the neck/shoulder level, leaving my helmet in clean air, no buffeting.
I also installed a National Cycle Deflector screen on my wife's DRZ-SM. Exactly the same fairing, so this will work much the same on a DR, as well.
Again, the only downside is the bar mount. The added versatility of the pivot-mounts on the windscreen allows you to be a little more creative as to how and where exactly you mount this screen.
I made up my own from a piece of lexan I had at home. Drilled a few holes in the headlight shroud and mounted with some foam strip between screen and shroud to elliminate gap for air to flow through. Originally, it was flat but I was getting a bit of wind buffeting on the peak of my helmet at highway speed. I ended up heating in it the oven and putting a bend at the top to deflect the wind slightly higher. Now it's perfect at all speeds and riding stance. Saved myself quite a few bucks, it has lasted really well and suits the bike. I have tilted the screen forward a bit using some rubber spacers that you can see in the photo on either side of the screen mounts. (I dont like those brackets that mount to the bars) For some extra space behind the cowling and windshield, I have made some brackets mounted to the upper shroud mounts on either side and have tilted the cowling forward by about an inch. I have made a couple of holes in the brackets at different intervals to alter the angle as required.
BMW Dakar screen works pretty good. Not bad lookin either.
Any pictures yet? How did you mount the stock speedo? Eyeballin' mine, it didn't look the stock cable was long enough to work.
cee baileys now has a smaller screen similar to screens for bikes
here's the direct link to madstad
here's the windscreen thread
that's the original Nat.Cyc. Deflector not the DX one with the quick disconects correct?
i like how the DX has the quick attachment knobs so you can go screenless for offroad in a quick hurry.
It's the standard sized windscreen from a KTM 950ADV. I had it left over from a swap to the touring (alien) when I had a 950. Took the headlight cover off to put a "Bad Boy" horn behind , slipped the windshield over the headlight and replaced the cover. Fits tight, very little vibs, and cuts thru the air very well. I'm 6 ft plus a smige, sitting on a flat topped Corbin, and the air is now totally off my chest with very little buffeting on my head. Worked so well I bought another used one off an inmate for my DRZ-SM and just ordered a new one for my dirt DRZ. Mike
That looks cool! Can we see a picture from the side or 3/4 view please?
And the cockpit view. Doesn't seem too close when standing either.
The one on my wife's bike is the original one, not the quick-disconnect one.
Good Day All
I love my Screens For Bikes windscreen, keep's the wind off my chest and look's like it should
come from the factory like this.
Here is my DR at my work place.
You work in a RENT-ME container?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
the b-king laminar lip used on the dr
for the price i'm likeing this concept better than anything i've seen as you can easily remove it for hot days or when riding more hard-core offroad.
No that's where I live, I work in the building next to it.
