Gotta watch that - you can get a nasty injury from the screen
I saw one guy replace the screen mounting bolts with that 3M strong "velcro" type stuff - stayed on at speed, but would pop off if hit.

This stuff:

Thanks, I am now thinking about it, if my neck would've hit the screen instead of me, could've been much worst :eek:

I have door edging strip on the edge of my screen. Makes the edge a lot safer.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-Car-...item3cc0de07a8

It has adhesive inside, a little heat and it followed the shape of the screen perfectly and stayed put.

Hardly noticable, but I take comfort that it's there

Went on a nice 200 loop from my house in Aberdeen Idaho. Followed part of the route Mobius took. First ride on the 990 with knobbies, what a transformation the bike rips off road now. I crossed streams and rocky climbs today that I never thought would be possible on this bike. This shot was taken at the top of Pebble Creek Ski Area, I-15 and Inkom are in the background. Great day

RUS-670513 (1x) Black Anodized Fitting
SUM-220630B (1x) 6an Black Anodized Flare plug
SUM-220690B (2x) 6an Black Anodized Hose End

Awesome, thanks for the part numbers!!!
Ordered everything yesterday and showed up this morning.
Looks like I have something to do this week
