Ok there seems to be a general consensus to chop the screen. Have to do something, it's like riding with an orbital sander strapped to your helmet at the moment.
All I have to do now is to find the courage to do it

Another option is to look for a second hand screen/crash damged and cut that and test it?

If it works cut your good screen then?

Tenere's are still available here. I just need to get the gift wrap.

Yes, The Friar, they go sweet. My concerns about the limited power was baseless.

The Tale of Two Teneres

Thought I'd post a pic of the old and the new. Bought the XTZ from a fellow ADV'r (Chris if you happen to be lurking, the old girl is going well).
She's a '96 model with some 60000 Klm's on the clock. Hasn't had a lot done to her but boy she goes.
Difference between the two? Well the XT is more refined obviously. Haven't run the XT in properly yet so it is yet to be put to the test, but I suspect the XTZ will not embarrass itself

WIBO as a trial I did a bit of both. I had an old screen in the shed which I attacked with an angle grinder ( thanks flickit, it did melt more than cut ) and then stuck it to the existing screen about 10 cm higher. The result= happy rider. Vibrating helmet gone. So for now I think the extension maybe the way to go. See pic, I think I might go into production, definite seller!

Pyrenees look like fun. Though all the push bikes around at the moment could be an issue
