Fitted the black/tinted wind deflectors for a little over R740.00.  In my humble opinion they look better than the clear standard ones.

Sorry, it is black/tinted from the factory

It looks very nice, especially with that blue.  :thumleft:
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

Cheers, the clear looked out of place next to all the existing black plastic.  I am not sure about the windscreen though because the headlight protector is clear

The darker screen looks cool but  PERSONALLY I think it is impractical.  I look through the screen often (being of average length  :-\) and I find it irritating if I can't see things because it's too dark.  With sunglasses on it is even worse.  With shadows across the road (say from a tree or such) potholes or any other obstacle can hide in plain sight, so to speak.  With the darker screen, your chances of seeing things decreases considerably.  But as I said, that is my experience.  But I still think the tinted screen looks cool.

If you want a tinted screen, WarEagle in Pretoria manufactures screens at around R1 200. Excellent quality. I have fitted one last year just after I bought my bike, also fitted tinted/black winglets.
