Thinking of getting the puig or powerbronze screen do either of them course the speedo to flap at speed as I have trouble seeing it with the standard screen.
Also has anybody removed the plastic around the handlebars what does it look like as I was thinking about leaving it off so i can mount some handlebar accesires I have from previous bike.

If you take off the shrouds you will find that there is very little underneath in the way of conventional handlebars to mount anything on. The line of the hidden "bars" very much follows the shape of the shroud in that the metal tubing dips down onto a fixing point at the top of the conventional forks. Beyond the visible grips and mirror/clutch/brake cylinder assemblies/mountings - there is not much else to work with. But it only takes a few screws to get the shroud off - so have a look and see what you think - I would guess you will decide "better that's covered up again".

The powerbronze screen doesn't cause any more flapping to speedo. At sensible speeds I can still see speed, miles, time, petrol guage etc.

Thanks for the info I think I will leave the plastic on and mount things somewhere else. I like the look of the Powerbronze screen not to high but I think the Puig looks better quality I like the way the screws are resesed like the original. I suppose I could buy the Puig screen and cut 2" of the top

I have put some screen trim round the PB screen and it hides the poor edging fairly well. I agree with you about the recessed fitting points but to be honest once you have changed the screen over you forget about that - it certainly isn't obvious. What I was concerned about was that the Puig was too high and had a shape which I actually didn't really like. Pays yer money and takes yer choice I suppose.

I agree with you about that funny shape at the top of the puig screen thats why I was thinking of chopping that bit off

Mutilation of a screen :005: must be a law against that (or an EU Directive).
