Looks good! I was thinking of replacing the OEM screen with the mini... have you noticed any downsides?

HOLY CRAP!

How far have you slid your fork tubes up in the triple clamp?

I'd like that mini screen better, just for looks, if it was a bit rounded on top.

I'm wondering if some of the original shield mounting brackets etc were removed, it looks cleaner.

My stock shield doesn't bother me that much but I don't ride over 60 mph very often. I get my kicks at much lower speeds leaned way over...

The other day though I had to blast back home on the tollway, about 45 minutes at 80 mph and up, stock shield didn't bother me at all. I guess if I had to tour in a straight line all day at over 60 it might start to get to me, but again, I don't do that.

Hello Jim here is the link from where I bought the Screen all the info you need to know is there http://www.mpcycledesign.com/ if you ever decide to get one for your bike Paul from MP Cycle Design was very good with his service and yes I would have to say the screen gives my bike a more of a road bike look and thats where I do all of my riding cheers.

Regards
Chocko.
