Sport screen for 2007 DL650?

Is there a sport screen for the 07 Weestrom? The Euro screen is hard to find and expensive to get overseas. MPcycledesigns is not in business right now. I really wanted something very short that would make the Strom look like a sport bike.

:bom_bigcry: MP will not be coming back at all.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Does anyone know why the Zero gravity screens don't fit 04' and up V-stroms?

Do what I did cut down your stock screen.

The end result is very good. You can always find another stock screen or go with an aftermarket(GIVI) when you want better protection.

This is/was a good one. A little too low to put a GPS behind..



Search around there is a post here or in Advrider showing how to make a short screen out of sheet plastic.

Does anyone know why the 02-03 sport screens don't fit the 04's and up?

There are no 650s before 2004. '02 and '03 1000s had different fairings.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

+1. I have cut down stock one for warm weather and a Clearview for winter. Much prefer the cut down one unless it's really cold.
