What color is correct to match the CR?  I assume the "black" is opaque, so "dark smoke" or "smoke"?
Is BRSpecialTuning the best place to order? (No dealer in Switzerland I found has a website listing the product).

Now the Puig screen says it's 18cm higher than the original, the Honda tall screen is only 12.6cm higher.  I'm assuming the Puig will protect better because of that, but how about aesthetics?  The Honda is considerably more expensive...

Thanks,  --sv

Mines got dark smoke, I think light smoke might fit in with the colours better.

Hmm, according to the image I found on BR's site, "smoke" looks the closest, although the tint color doesn't really look the same - I guess that's to be expected as the Honda screen is injection molded (create any color you want) and the Puig looks to be thermoformed out of flat sheet (colors limited to what's available from the sheet plastics supplier)...

Your probably right that the puig is thermoformed, you can see machining marks around the edge of the screen.

The Honda screen has a thicker edge where it is moulded, and I think this is why the Honda screen wobbles the instrument pod.  The thicker edge makes the screen more rigid than the Puig, which can flex a fair bit.

OK, so if I understand what you're saying, the fact that the Honda screen is more rigid is not necessarily a good thing, as the instruments then jiggle while riding because of the wind - while the less rigid Puig flexes and the instruments don't jiggle...
