Title: Best screen for DRZ400E
Post by: Leondk on October 28, 2009, 09:39:03 pm
I have been searching the net for a couple of day's now for a screen to take the wind off my chest.  As far as i can see there are 4 options
1.  MRA Roadshield.
2.  Fit a dakar screen
3.  Buy the kappa universal screen
4.  Make my own screen.

Any idea's on what will be the best option?

Dakar screen wont take the wind of your face.

I have the Kappa screen, very ugly yes...looks like a police/pharmacy bike...but man is it awesome on the open road! No wind at all!

Takes me 40sec to install/take it off, I only use it on trips though...to ugly to ride in town with :D

Hi here is pics of how I have fitted the screen. You need to get the angle right to get the wind out of your face (I am 1.80m tall). If too shallow angle then it will actually get in the way when you do technical riding. Also fit it so that it is easy to remove if need be. The way I have fitted it, it also allows for space to fit a 12V plug and a GPS.

Here is some pics

Actually it does work. Just tilt the screen forward my making 2 tubing spacers for the top 2 bolts.
Also make sure there's a gap between the screen and the headlight cowl.

Why would you consider the MRA screen?  It looks really nice.

I was lucky and got this TT screen for a 1200gs for mahala. You could also use a screen of a 1150gs and gsa.

If anyone with a DRZ or other bike is looking for a screen, I have a Kappa 660 universal screen going for R1000 including postage anywhere in SA. I had it on my DRZ but I have seen them on DR s, older XT s     
and a TTR250/ Djebel
