    Replacement Screen

    Has anyone tried a Powerbronze flip screen?

    I was going to order the standard screen as I've heard good things about them and I must admit I prefer the look of them to anyone else's.  I then saw the flip type and I wonder how effective they are?

    Cheers.

    You said "to order the standard screen". Is it about Honda or Powerbronze screen? I mean, what do you have on you bike, now? Powerbronze?

    I presently have the standard Honda screen and was going to change it for the standard Powerbronze but I'm now considering the Powerbronze flip screen.

    I have the Powerbronze standard (not flip) screen.  It works well and it fits with the lines of the bike.

    Please, help me to understand the difference between standard and flip. From the webpage of Powerbronze I didn't catch it...

    I have to change my standard Honda screen but I do not have enough details to take a decision with what. Have you evaluated also other possible suppliers than Powerbronze?

    Sorry but I do not know the difference between both products.

    I think, but I am not sure, flip is 125mm taller than standart.

    "Flip" screens have a forwards curve at the top in order to try to deflect the wind upward more and over your head.
    As far as I can tell from the Powerbronze website, there is no "flip" screen for the Crossrunner - even though they indicate there is, on their website there is only the standard (same size as original) screen or the taller screen (+125mm/5") without the flip.  There is no image at all that indicates that they have a real "flip" style screen for the Crossrunner, so I would inquire directly with them first.
