    Hey,

    I like the KTM Rally Replica look, so I am playing a bit during the winter time. I wanted to produce a carbon windschield that will have better wind protection and look way more cool than the original one :-)

    How it evolves:

    I started with some clay modeling fist... it is approx. 2cm lower than the original but more steep so the protection will be better and the behing the shield the space e.g. for navigation stuff will be created...

    Than 3D scanning and 3D modeling:

    And here is the result.... What do you think? :-)

    Seriously Nice Rade,

    How is the space between the cockpit and the screen now? Since the screen seems to be further away then the original. Is there a big gap?

    Thanks,
    Marc

    The gap is aprox. 3cm.
    There was also question on comparison with the original version... So I did few more pix.

    That is truly a thing of beauty!

    For the gap, maybe a shaped piece closed cell neoprene foam?

    I am thinking the gap may reduce buffetting/turbulence by allowing a little airflow behind the screen, allowing for the same air pressure. Correct me if I'm wrong on my train of thought:ear

    I'm with you
    a little airflow through the bottom of the screen should help.
    I'd leave it alone.

    It was supposed to be already, but I had some troubles to make the form and it seems like I have destroyed even the mould... The Rally version is was more demanding... X-fingers pls. and give me 3 more weeks...

    I didn't had a chance to really try it because of the weather here, but I really like the look on my 990R. The part is well made.

    Thanks Rade!

    Talking of weather... we are supposed to get 30cm tomorrow :(: but Wednesday, I take the plane to Perou for 2 weeks of riding! :happay

    Got the screen a while back, but haven't been able to test it on the road. Good thing about it is the extra space to position the navigator or what ever you got going on on the dash.
