meanwhile, i like the big klr or the XR650L screens mentioned herein, or similar. because, any shield that just attaches to the DR's shroud is in the wrong place unless it swoops up at parabolic angle. i want the option of not impaling myself in a getoff

waiting on delivery of the FZ1 screen...
Could you post a few pics of the Madstadd pre-install? I am thinking of giving them a try as well to see if I can improve my Dakar install. The Madstadd sure does look to be a universal possibility...TIA
