Next up: bodywork and windscreens. Maybe you're looking to change the appearance of your bike, or you need some better wind protection. Did you ditch that floppy stock from fender? Tell us what changes made your ride more comfortable and stable...

Me? I'm happy spending the day behind my "barn door" Parabellum screen. No buffeting :clap. Cosmetically, it ain't the most beautiful, but the DR is more about function over form, and the Parabellum just plain works.
I had a universal type screen from National Cycle, but never could get it adjusted to eliminate buffeting in stron crosswinds.

I'm also happy with the DRZ400SM from fender I swapped for the stocker. That fender doesn't catch the wind like the stock DR650 fender. Some claim it to put out lots of spray in the rain, but in my case, it doesn't get past the big Parabellum...

I've been using an MRA streetshield and really like it.
Small and out of the way for off-roading, and it keeps the windblast off my chest for sustained high speeds. Short enough for good clean air-flow to my helmet so the rain-X can do its job to let rain drops get blown off my face-shield for a clear view.

I'm thinking of ordering one of these Britannia Composites complete fairing units.

Larger fairing, adjustable windshield, double headlight lighting (will add HID low beam) and adds good dash location for Vapor/GPS. Looks good IMO.

Maier Windshield
 
I got a Maier windshield from JC Whitney. It works pretty well.

Man, thats about as pricey as a Safari tank depending on the lights... Very cool though.

I bought a Spitfire after reading all the threads on the subject, I hope it will work for me... Need to install it soon.

Running a Screens for Bikes. I like it. Keeps the wind off my chest pretty good, is fit and trim and unobtrusive.

I had an MRA before this. It worked well and was very adjustable. Problem was the stands for it hooked to the handlebars and cluttered things up.

I don't currently own a DR, but since this is an index thread used as a resource, I'll add the link below to the Turbo City screen and bracket.

And, a very exciting development related to it, Madstad should soon have a fully adjustable bracket specifically for the Turbo City bars! Killer combination!

Anyone have any more info on this setup? When it will be available? As stated, this could be a killer setup (with Madstad).

On their site they only list Bandit and Vstrom models for purchase.

Call Mark. He's got 'em in stock. I'm not sure about the pricing. He said he needs to create dedicated product pages on the site, and he hasn't had time.

Great guy and a great product!

GsVs 11-09-2010 01:52 PM

Works Great !!
 
That's my white DR in the picture below (well was mine, sold the DR) ... but the Set-up Works GREAT ! I now have it on my WR250R ...
The set-up uses
  • TCI Products Windscreen Brackets
  • MadStad RoboBractets
  • MadStad CR Sport Windscreen


Give Mark at MadStad a call .... he will set you right up !

GsVs, That is a very clean looking DR you used to have. I am betting the new owner is very proud of it. I also see you are still following the DR sites.

Enjoy your new bike...

FJRthommo 11-12-2010 01:59 PM
