Mounted a F650 windshield to my 640 Adventure tonight

Hi all,

Finished my installation of the BMW F650 windshield on my KTM 640 Adv tonight. I will post photos as soon as I can get them posted. I mounted it "midway" for both functionality and aesthetics that are pleasing to my eye. I made no modifications to the shield for mounting such as trimming or bending. I may trim just a hair here and there. The bottom edge is against the fairing - this may not be favorable, but I will monitor it. Also, I get ever so little of a tap on my right hand guard at full turn (my bars are a touch tweaked on that side). Everything points to a reasonable modification in both price and installation.

Michael

MiFoPa,

would like to see the pix, considering the same mod for longer runs.

Cheers!

Here are some photos... In hindsight I think I would have mounted it a hair higher, but overall I am very pleased with the performance.

I used hex head bolts for a cleaner look - I believe they were 3/8's. For spacing I used skateboard "truks" bushings (Bones - medium density).
