Screens for Bikes

I have the Screens for Bikes windscreen (as do many others here) and I love it! I love it especially that it's small, lightweight, and doesn't connect to the handlebars, crowding them even further.

I can't recommend it enough. I did a 700-mile trip in mid-October from NW Oregon to Crater Lake and back, in mid-30-deg weather, and it was great!

Thanks for the link! This looks like a nice shield system!

Here's today's back to back tests with the PowerBomb header (black line) and stock headpipe (blue line). Horsepower first, then torque.

.


The top end gains and higher peak torque of the PowerBomb easily outweigh the small advantage the stock header has at 4000 rpm. OK, this bike isn't exactly representative of the the typical DR650 either. 780cc big bore, big valve head, 190 cam, TM40, FMF PowerCore 4. Even if the PowerBomb did nothing it looks so much more right on the bike compared to the skinny little stock pipe that IMHO it's worth the price.
What about on a stock bike? I want to upgrade my exhaust, lose some weight, gain a little power. I am going to start with a jet kit and airbox mod and my objective is to run a GSXR can, Two Brothers mid pipe and and FMF front pipe.
Do you know if the FMF pipe fits the Two Brothers mid pipe?
Are their any advantages running the FMF pipe (if it fits as noted above) on a stock engine? I agree, it does look "right" on the bike.

I am avioding a full FMF system or slip on due to what looks like impending legislation in my state banning all aftermarket exhausts. I figurer the GSXR can will meet the spirit and intent of any law better than the FMF pipe and it is quiet.

Thank you.

will there be any performance gains with that exaust setup as far as using the fmf header? i'm wondering if the header needs a fmf can attached to have any performance improvements.

The GSXR can with that mid pipe works very well on mine, with the stock head pipe. Once you get to increasing the head pipe size, you are doing something that typically only benefits at high rpm where you really need to move air. Can hurt your bottom and mid. Bigger bore engine with cam and head work, yes I'd say that would be complementary.

I have not done that however on my DR so can't say for sure on that particular engine. I did grind the weld down on the head pipe; it was right smack in the way of air getting out of the head.

Yeah, I know, but I just bought one that is bone stock. Hard to believe I know. Thus the nature of my question.

Doesn't sound like it will be bone stock for long ...

Ummmm..... nope! I have a long shopping list.


We need a wrenching smiley. Kind of like this but with tools and no bib. Or this with a hammer and motorcycle instead of a stick and another smiley.

a couple pictures of that Rotopax set-up of yours would be MUCH appreciated....here's mine, but I like the way you've done yours.



Maybe a side shot with and without the can on it?

TIA

Ditto

Mine came delivered with one. I'm 6' 2" and with a boosted seat it works really well. Recommended.

But the one you suggested looks good and I have asked them about a taller screen.

Rob,

How tall are you?

This will give me an idea of how this screen will work for me.
