    I bought an small MSA universal windshiled from Twisted Throttle for my DR & it bolts up to the handlebars with lots of adjustment for height & angle.

    Weld some tabs to my 8" race light bracket and voila! It works great.

    That came out pretty good. Most of them are hideous.

    +1 the MRA RoadShield is top quality, provides great protection, and is adjustable on the fly. I have photos posted on a windscreen thread about a KLXS not long ago.

    +2 on the MRA screens. I've owned two different models and will buy a third. The mounting kits are great and have a lot of adjustability. This is the Road Race model on my XMoto.

    Try the Lynx fairing from Britannia composites. I mounted one on my KTM 690 and found it to be excellent for both wind protection and function. I owned a "big red pig" before buying my 690 and wished the Lynx was available then. Get both hid lights too for the best lighting.

    I like the design. Does it block a lot of the buffeting? Referring to the Aimhi fairing

    Looks like some notching was required to clear the Acerbis tank?

    "Lava Buns"-brand kittylitter-pail windscreen. It's all the rage for dualsporting now. Procure the model with the "No chugging infants allowed" decals. You'll be the envy...or something...of all your riding buddies.
