Hello all - I've been looking for something to replace my 86 Shadow, and I've been convinced for about a year that the 650 is the right bike for me.
I've never been a windshield user, so I wonder if there are any companies that made a little stubby body coloured finishing piece to put on after the shield comes off. Kind of like a Harley batwing with the 4" black shield. Is there anything like this or are you better off leaving it alone. I hate seeing the road thru an extra piece of plastic. -thanks

Thanks for the pics - If it feels better and runs better, then it doesn't necessarily have to look better. -Al

Another MP shield works well and looks good.

Take a look around the site, and you should be able to dig up some pics of chopped/blacked out OEM screens. Very similar look to Greywolf's ride, but at virtually ZERO $$$. Whistler and Monkeygrass are two members I know have done it, and there has to be at least a couple more.

Question for Greywolf

Another MP shield works well and looks good.

That's a sharp looking screen, is that an 11" screen? The MP website makes reference to a 11" and a 14" 'shorty' screen, so wanted to make sure before I plunk down the scratch for it.

thanks!

And don't forget the Suzuki Euro Sport Screen...

Love that Euro screen. Mine is in the box waiting to be installed when the wee comes out of storage.

Euro Sport Screen

I rented a DL650X in the UK and was so happy with the Sport Screen that I bought one and took it home for my K7 Wee. I experienced zero buffeting and quiet air flow even at motorway speeds.
