    Are these screens still in development or are you selling them?

    This thread needs to go to vendors if you're selling.

    Hi Ya'll.

    TornadoF5, great job, the end product looks superb:clap. I'm a little confused:eek1. Can this screen be bought in either the 30mm short or the standard size or both sizes? I'm 6'4" and have played around with cutting down and adding to the original screen only to find the best was no screen at all. I'd love to try a screen with a lip on top. Happy to have your advice and hoping you make a standard size replacement:D. Cheers from Oz, Glenn.

    Looks cool. But is that all it is for? It wont stop buffeting. The only way to do that is to allow air to pass under the screen.

    As mentioned I'm 6ft riding with an Arai XD and as a result of peak buffeting I developed the screen basing it on the principle of a rolling lower pressure airflow off the lip and the "faster' laminar air being dflected over and above peak line. To me testing at a 160kph I could tilt my head right back without my head being torn off.

    Buffeting occurs as various body parts of both bike and rider get into unstable airflow. As also mentioned experiences can and most times are different for most people e.g. different riding positions, sitting forward or backward on the seat, arms tucked in arms out, skinny, broad, helmet type even weather conditions on the day etc etc.

    I guess a perfect screen would be a very large screen in width and height, but not many people I'm guessing want a "delivery bike" look either.

    Some of you have asked me the heights of the screens. I placed a short and a long one with tape measures to show you the height from the lip of the curl. Sorry about the camera work and scew tape, but you get the idea.

    Standard screen is 53cm

    Here's the shorter one which as mentioned is 30mm shorter

    Strangely now you are the 2nd person enquiring about a 690Smt, but reality for me to make a screen requires a donor bike and then come up with a screen design that will be as effective as possible and aestetically pleasing. Thereafter one needs to understand mounting points brackets etc as the smt if i understand correctly has no screen at all and make a mould from which to pull off a high end product.
    Right now I have no plans to make smt screens, but what I can suggest if you can find a screen you like to let me know and possibly I may be able to have it made from polycarbonate?

    I closed the business due to local material supply and cost. I will do an investigation on the feasibility of restarting it as now I have a lot of demand. ...
