You can buy just brackets from Turbo City and make your own screen. Or buy the above set up, try it and if you still want shorter cut it down yourself.
Don't buy the screen and cut it down...get a nice bright red wastebasket like I saw at Home depot and cut it to meet your needs...I love my $3 screen on the brackets....with frikkin $12 of shipping!
Can we see that? I like make dos.
If someone will accept an emailed pic of my white IKEA lid screen that they will post for me, I can provide...send me a PM...
Here you go!
I agree. The only thing I notice about the windshield is it keeps the air pressure off you. Other than that, you don't even think about it. It's awesome and not near as obtrusive as the photos show.
Hey Ed, is that carpeting I see on your workshop floor? Now that is class.
Well, I have no room for a big lift, so I have to work off the floor...old bad knees and cold concrete don't mix!
FLAGGER: Many thanks
I have one of these ... it works great and is more stable than you would think.
"Discount Ramps" have lotta nice products and eye candy
So $59.95 + $12 shipping? They do like to sock it to us. CRF only hit me $18.95 for the 13t + $10.77 ship. No lube, just bend over. Was that IKEA plastic flat and thin enough to just take on the shape of the rack, or did you have to use a heat gun to persuade it?
Oh, yeah......there's a lift in that picture.
No heat needed....make a pattern out of posterboard first....so add $1 to your production costs. If I do a version 2, it'll have "ears" that extend L & R up and out to get air flow up and away from the mirrors. Mirrors always make turbulence on the sides of your helmet that make noise. It's my opinion that smooth non turbulent air hitting your helmet is always preferred. I was out on the e-way at 70-75 mph indicated, and the very top of the windshield would slightly flutter in the turbulence behind big trucks.....so if you want a taller shield (this one is 16.75" from the tip over the headlight to the top)...I'm 5'9"...you'll need stiffer material than the 0.066" IKEA stuff. Shop for Kydex on Amazon. I have some small pieces of 0.090" polypropylene, and that would not require any heat since the shield is not a compound curve. Also, understand that these brackets will NOT work if you have bar risers....I ended up going with taller narrower cheap ass $20 steel ATV bars....with no real cable problems.
It works and you can't argue with the price. And that kind of plastic (HDPE?) will never break.
Dang, glad you pointed that out. I was going to get Rox bar risers, the ones that can rock to a position you like. Maybe a welding shop could make a piece to add to the bottom of the rack to mount lower. Only thing is, then I lose the ability to adjust the bars as needed. I had a screen on an SV650 much like this one: http://www.twistedthrottle.com/cata...e=Windshields+(for+naked+bikes)&q=wind+shield
And, again....told myself I wasn't going to be throwing a bucket of $ at this bike. At least I can ride down there and check it out. They are good about letting you take stuff out to your bike to see how it will fit/look. Did that with a tank bag for a different bike, and glad I did. It looked like shite on the bike.
is Polypropylene = 5 come recycle time
Kind of sad, really. Just poking around on that site. They do have Rox risers @ $105 + $7.35 tax. Amazon, $70.16 with free shipping (Powersport Parts). Difference $42.19. That's roughly 10 gas tank fill ups.
I am thinking of adding a 13t to my parts order (all from the same store - they don't carry 250L specific parts) and I was wondering if I can substitute a sprocket from another bike (CRF 150, 250 etc)?
Not sure about cross referencing, but a JT (JTF1321.13) is what you want. Not sure of ship costs, and I just noticed going to Canada, a whole different animal. http://sprocketcenter.com/index.php...t-1321-520-steel-front-off-road-sprocket.html
