broken nose and windscreen: need repalcement

awesome day in dirt today until the last 100ft of the ride. was forced wide by some people in the trail, hit a ditch, whacked my nose on the windscreen, and busted them both. the people in the trail thought it was funny as shit...

looking at replacing the screen and obviously want to go with a shorty. does anyone have a pic of the orange tint, moose short screen on a 990r?

this is the one i'm looking for...



thanks.

laramie

I don't know.. Anything without a folded lip can cut your neck. It sounds impossible, but I know of an Africa Twin guy who had cut his screen down, and unfortunately he died when the suspension bottomed out and the screen cut / broke his neck. At least the stock screen only cuts your nose / face No ofcourse in an unlucky situation it can hurt the neck as well.. but imagine a razor blade sharp edged screen - like the one in the picture? (the stock screen has a littlebit rounded edge if I remember correctly)

i had teh moose screen a couple weeks back. like most, the fit of mine was not the best. but, for $55, who really cares? after a few rides i took a rock to the screen and it shattered and i lost my ezpass....

i will be cutting down a stocker to similiar dimensions toreplace it.

went ahead and ordered the orange shorty. i have read all the complaints about the fit but i figure for the $50 it was worth a shot. at worst i will send it back and buy a OEM screen and cut it down.

will post pics once i get it.

laters,

laramie

I got the dark screen from Moose rather than the orange. Like everyone else says, the fit is bad but it went right on. I love using it in on dirt, I get a ton more air to my chest and stay cooler.

thank goodness for nose guards. hard to see but you can tell where the initial impact hit the guard, the traveled down to the lens. there is a flat crease in the lens the exact thickness of the windscreen. without this, i would look even uglier....



laters,

laramie

Welcome to the club

I broke my nose and received a life long reminder of my beloved 950 as well. Cut the stock windscreen way down, much farther than the moose screen and have only taped it a few times.
The other advantage is clean smooth air.

Streetbikes have windscreens,dirtbikes dont. Theres a reason for that that is documented in this thread.

I can tell the minute I start dirtriding on my DR that the Cee-Bailey windscreen is in the way and dangerous,I remove it before I go.

Hey Laramie
Sorry to hear about your mishap ! glad it wasnt worse !

that is why I built this one

absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it !
it smooths out the airflow too and still blocks wind
and I have floppy mirrors
I ride pretty radical off road stuff sometimes


I made a few extras but gave it up when I moved to Oregon
it is infusion molded carbon fiber with UV resistant resin
I still have the Rubber Top Infusion mold and 3 gallons of UV resistant infusion resin, vacuum pump, pressure pot, but I have no shop space, and other reasons, sold 28 and broke even
My PM box was getting stuffed with orders but I couldnt keep up and had to tell them I quit
Cheers , Lonewolf

i am lucky enough to have one of dusttodust's screens, and it is an awesome piece. i have one of his "blems" and i can't find the problem with it at all.... i have since scratched it up pretty good offroad, and i love it. (i had short run with the moose because my ezpass would not work through the dusttodust's screen, but after moose shattered and i lost the ezpass, i went back to old faithfull after)



i am very glad i got one before you quit selling them. why not just make them out of normal fiberglass, and ditch the whole carbon thing? then you wouldn't have to be so anal about the weave of the carbon, and could sell them cheaper. just sayin...

ya, i thought about talking to you lonewolf but frankly don't like the idea of not being able to see through the screen. don't know why, but i do. i look at these guys that have the tall CF screens and think, "how the hell can you see what's in front of you?" yours i'm sure are better but still opaque.

hopefully it all work fine and looks good. supposed to get the screen today and will post some pics of what it looks like.

as for the nose, the swelling is almost gone but i have two big black eyes that make people wonder what the hell happened to me. i've just been saying i was lipping off to my wife and she back handed me. that usually gets a laugh.

I have the rally raid screen and like it a lot more than stock.
I was a bit worried that I wouldn't like it since you cant see through it,
but it has not been a problem for me at all...
Get well soon

i thought the same thing, but it is not a problem at all. when i had the smoked moose, i didn't look through it either, because it was short, and i am not the tallest guy out there.

when i wheelie 1st ~3rd, i usually look to the left of the bike anyway...

well i got it. it looks like shit, fits like shit, and i'm sending it back. i'm sure if i wanted to do some filing and some work i could make it fit, but frankly im not interested. looks like i will be calling Chip today and ordering an OEM one that i will cut down.

laters,
