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

Larger fairing, adjustable windshield, double headlight lighting (will add HID low beam) and adds good dash location for Vapor/GPS. Looks good IMO.
I like that setup. $465 for a fairing, dual headlights and adjustable windshield system seems pretty reasonable for what you get.

Mine arrived today and spent the following 4.5hrs doing the install. Used original speedo and dash lights, a cpl of 12V sockets and a cpl of toggle switches.....still had plenty of room for the planned Garmin GPS. Took it for a blast up the highway and soooooooo much more comfy at speed......will try the lights out tonight but they seem 100% better then original.

If you want to keep your stock mirrors, there are extenders available that will place the mirrors further outwards, improving the rear view.

I'm with you, rivercreep. Just the right amount of protection and it never gets in the way. I got mine from Twisted Throttle.

Figured I'd add a few pics of my Spitfire for comparison. The only gripe I have about it is the mounting brackets. However, with patience and trial & error, its not terribly difficult to find a good mounting spot - even with a SE bar, crossbar and all.





The height of it as shown keeps all the wind pressure off my chest and redirects it just at the neck/shoulder level, leaving my helmet in clean air, no buffeting.





I also installed a National Cycle Deflector screen on my wife's DRZ-SM. Exactly the same fairing, so this will work much the same on a DR, as well.

Again, the only downside is the bar mount. The added versatility of the pivot-mounts on the windscreen allows you to be a little more creative as to how and where exactly you mount this screen.

windscreen

I made up my own from a piece of lexan I had at home. Drilled a few holes in the headlight shroud and mounted with some foam strip between screen and shroud to elliminate gap for air to flow through. Originally, it was flat but I was getting a bit of wind buffeting on the peak of my helmet at highway speed. I ended up heating in it the oven and putting a bend at the top to deflect the wind slightly higher. Now it's perfect at all speeds and riding stance. Saved myself quite a few bucks, it has lasted really well and suits the bike. I have tilted the screen forward a bit using some rubber spacers that you can see in the photo on either side of the screen mounts. (I dont like those brackets that mount to the bars) For some extra space behind the cowling and windshield, I have made some brackets mounted to the upper shroud mounts on either side and have tilted the cowling forward by about an inch. I have made a couple of holes in the brackets at different intervals to alter the angle as required.

Any pictures yet? How did you mount the stock speedo? Eyeballin' mine, it didn't look the stock cable was long enough to work.
Thanks.
