Ta, is it just a bit of trim and what's the theory behind it.

Sprayed mine flat black. Looks fine to me.



With the GPS mounted so little light get back there you can't see the back at all.

that screen has a reasonable look to it too especially in tinted color.

even less oem looking madstad would do the same thing and provide height adjustability http://www.madstad.com/s.nl/sc.7/category.1971/.f
with that screen & robobrackets you could also quickly drop the screen http://www.madstad.com/s.nl/sc.10/.f all the way low for off-road riding or go as far as unbolting the whole upper screen with the 4 hand tightened T-nuts or remove the robo-brackets/screen (4 bolts using tools kept in your tankbag) from the base plate and have a typical shorty screen. http://madstad.bounceme.net/KTMAdv_9...9990_dw_04.jpg if you used this setup you could also still use those aeroflow side wings as well as madstad's to really reduce side dirty wind.

sure a bit fugly but adv bikes are form over fashion right?

I agree, AeroFlow is the only way to go on the 950/990!!!
Here's mine.........

My Saeng edging is catching dust in a bin somewhere in the garage. Been pleased with the Ricardo option since then.

Like all the options here, works for some, not for others.

CF/ Kevlar windscreen

Ive been working on this for a while.This is the first one out of the mold. CF and Blue kevlar.
I find a nice calm area up to about 75 mph at 85 it is far better than stock.
But starts to get a bit of buffering.. I dont know that I can expect any better. Like Cyborg says
Its probably a personal thing that works for some but not all.

It does provide a slightly better experience in my case. However, like most who follow this thread, I am still searching for "the answer". I know that yours and my physical dimensions are a bit different, so no surprise regarding your Saeng trials.

I actually still have an extra OEM windscreen sitting around from when you first did your mod; perhaps I'll get a round tuit myself one of these days.

The Aerogards arrived, and have been mounted, but it's pouring rain here so I'm going to avoid the rush hour traffic for the moment....will likely take a run tomorrow after traffic subsides.

Very nice work! The windscreen does look great....where does the "Testers who will provide detailed feedback" line form?

Also, I probably missed it, but what are your physical dimensions?

Really nice job on the windscreen!

Would be interesting to test one.

Just a thought...

Has anyone looked into whether their high fender is causing turbulence?
It could be effecting the air as it hits the nose of the bike (and then tumbles up to your head)?

Someone with really bad buffeting and a high fender could conduct an experiment and try pulling their high fender and see if the buffeting changes... just thinking out loud.

This works ...

A few minutes with a Dremmel .Belt sander to finish . 3M dual lock strips . Industrial heat gun or stove top to shape a bit . Equals a mini Laminar lip that's not hard to look at . And it works . It's just the top 3" cut off and lowered . I've done three of these and could be persuaded to do more .
Adjustable - removeable - where is my spell check ?
