Wow, looks really good.
Looks good, thanks for posting pics, gives me some ideas for the KLR-riffic project
Never give up! With about 30 minutes of fab work this morning I made a 7/8 inch "crossbar" for the zuma to give me a nice mounting point for the spitfire. This is all prototype so far with a lot of rough edges and nothing has been snugged down or road tested, but it does look promising. If it works well I will paint the conduit black or spray it with plasti-dip.
I am a serious believer in the yamaha screen, but I do have to give this one a win in the looks department. If I get the factory set-up I may see if I can at least mount the spitfire screen to the oem hardware. Of course that will leave me with 2 open large holes and 6 new ones.
Here are the unfinished teaser pics.
The Spitfire is definitely a nice looking screen, I had one on a Rebel 250. But for the Zuma I just went ahead and got the Yamaha screen. It's ugly, being basically rectangular, but it seems to do a pretty good job. I noticed my GPS speed actually increased a couple mph with it on. I would have expected the opposite.
I did roadtest the spitfire set-up and it worked well, but I have gone on and ordered the yamaha screen because I like to ride with a 1/2 helmet when its not freezing outside and the spitfire mainly protects the torso. I am really hoping I can mount the spitfire on the zuma hardware.
recall on the fuel pump has the wee beastie going in next week for a tune up while it gets all pumped up
any of you 125 zuma folks who did not get the letter be aware they are paying for the recall this time and compensating if you had it done and paid before this notice.
