Flattened out the windscreen in oven, test fit several times, drilled four holes in the cover, used bolts and nuts supplied with the windscreen. I did buy some plastic bushings to shim out the top of the windscreen by 3/8" with longer bolts (not in this photo though).

Looks good
Most covers are bolt or clamped to the bike but the te is clipped just like the sidecovers.Hows the cover go handling the extra pressure?Wondering if it will pop off in a crash.

I've got the same windscreen on my TE, it's damn hard to take my shroud off, and i don't notice any deflection of it at any speed.
it's even strong enough that i strapped a 12v pump to it (on the riders side) - about half a kilo or so - with no hassles

The windscreen does make it a little top heavy, but I have ridden many miles at highway speeds and it hasn't come flying off and did a lot of washboard roads the other day and it didn't come loose. The rubber grommets seem to hold pretty well.

I think in a crash it would stay unless it smacked a tree or something...

Haven't yet, i was going to take my car and bike at the same time (saves useless miles being put on the bike) but don't have a place to store them yet. When my lease finishes at this place, i'll be moving to a place with a garage, which will happen in July

Tell you what, i'm severely missing my husky already.
I bought a little dt175 to scoot around on (adelaide hills are nice ) but the thing just doesn't compare...

WTB Safari tank

Is anyone here selling a translucent Safari tank for the 630? My buddy is looking to buy one immediately if you have one for sale or know of a good deal on one. Thanks!

FrontierCat, would it be too much to ask to see a photo of the windcsreen from the front, head on? That would be very helpfull, if possible.

Laminar lip

I've been looking at a Laminar lip windscreen for the TE630, this one is for a KTM supermoto, it looks like a possibility.


I think if you contact them and send a photo they will recommend a one from the shapes and sizes they have.

This is the TCI windshield brackets w/ a screen I cut from lexan. It lets some air flow behind the lexan. Unfortunatly the brackets hit the Safari tank and limit lock. May be looking for a different screen soon.
