Thats the one I was refering to. I saw Lewy's post over on the DR650 thread when he had his stand-offs made. Did a bang-up job too, I like 'em

My ScreensforBikes windscreen arrived by mail today. It is amazing, the screen was sent from Australia by mail the same day as a jacket I purchased was sent from Colorado by UPS. The package from Australia only arrive 2 days later and I didn't have to shell out a was of cash in brokerage fees.

Anyway, I mounted it up and will test the screen out tomorrow. I took some photos that I will post in a bit, but I think it looks good.

MRA Streetshield

Here's the MRA Streetshield on my 650.

Wind hits me in the neck. Smooth air on the helmet. Probably not enough for long trips but for everything else is fine. Doesn't get in the way when standing and leaning forward when climbing a hill off-road.

Having made my own xchallenge screen, and sold a few more to other inmates, I thought I might try a few for other bikes as well. I knocked up a prototype for my mates drz400 yesterday and he is going to try it out for me. I'll let you know how it goes.

DR Distance Tour '09 --- WINDSCREEN?

Does anyone use a Maier windscreen on their DR350 for long distance touring. I'm looking at a couple models from JC Whitney that look pretty good.

Thoughts, Ideas??

Thanks

MadStad adjustable windshield bracket for my DR650

I was determined to get this to work! I used 3/16 inch x 4 inch aluminum for the mounting platform, and it attaches to extended upper triple clamp bolts. Plane is inclined about 20 degrees, similar to the V-Strom. Mark Stadnyk of MadStad Engineering was kind enough to help me with some critical dimensions.

I have ordered a medium V-Strom shield from California Scientific to use with it. It's supposed to show up Monday, can't wait to try it!

I have photos in the album "wznjsx" in the DR650 yahoo group. Got tired of fighting with posting them here...

I went ahead and ordered a "Screens for Bikes" dark tint shield. When it arrives, I will post some photos and thoughts.

I purchased my 07 about a month ago from a fellow ADV member. It was all stock, so I am gradually making the changes I want. A Sargent low seat has been ordered (I have a 29" inseam and don't plan to lower the bike), a Wolfman small Expedition tank bag added and a cradle for my Zumo is on the way. Still to come, new tank, bars, handguards, bash plate, etc.

Looks good

Hey Jon ....

Your design looks good .... Last night I just got done cleaning up my DR-MadStad design (old design - post #217 of this thread) here

The new design eliminates the wedge and brings the windscreen closer to the plate and headlight cowling.

I will take some pictures and post this weekend.

OK Look at that KTM . It is the only one that looks like the fairing isnt wearing a "hat". I'm sure the rest of the setups work well and are def better then anything I can do.

I've seen 1 guy who makes a custom fairing and it looks ...OK. Thinking about getting it, but I really dont think I need a $300 + set up with new lights etc..

Doesnt anyone make a plastic one piece set up that looks clean ( no bolts and or screws showing in front) and actually keeps the wind out of my face on long rides but wont chop off my head in the dirt?

I had not seen all those photos! That looks good too. I will be interested to see your updated design. I imagine you went through a lot of the same design decisions I did. The height is a big one...tough to know how high you want the brackets. You have to design in some adjustability so you can find the sweet spot and get max benefit from the MadStad up/down.

Then again maybe we are a bit anal, a lot of guys are happy with a pie tin attached to the bars. It's just that if you've ever had it tuned right, you know just how good it can be!
