Which screen/fairing for Husky 701?
« on: November 25, 2019, 09:54:31 pm »
I have a 2017 Husky 701 Enduro with the standard screen still and looking to get something for better wind protection.

So what option have you guys tried and what works for you? I am quite tall at 64 inches.

I have seen them with KTM 690 screens. Not too sure I like this because you have to drill 4 holes in the standard white screen. Just how much protection will this give? It is affordable though.

Not keen to spend R20k plus on something like the Rade garage fairing kit. The wind on the helmet does not seem quite so bad at that price.

Any input will be much appreciated.

The Hyde kit is around R9950, which includes Hyde handguards, too; as Noneking says, not quite in the league of RADE Garage, but very good value indeed....


A few riders have put on the handlebar-mounted screen from GIVI/KAPPA, called the A660, around R1600, and it removes in 30 seconds, for more technical/dune riding, etc.


Shout if we can help, A660 in stock, RADE in stock, HYDE on back-order...

Thanks guys

Saw the Hyde kit.  Just not sure how much wind it will still let through. Seems to leave quite a gap for wind to pass around the clamps

I have a handlebar-clamped screen that you can borrow to try out if you like. Problem is that the Husky "number-board" above the headlight forces the screen to be fitted at an angle toward the rider, if

you have handlebar raisers, it will solve that problem 100%.

From the adventure rider website, this conversion looks great to me. Unfortunately, holes to be drilled.

"Got a KTM 990 SM powerparts touring screen and attached it to the 701. Pretty straightforward installation, and looks pretty ok to me."

You cannot block the wind completely Abrie, you need wind, just less.

If there is no wind you'll create a vacuum that causes problems, you just need less wind.....

Wow. Thank you for the kind offer Dan. Will let you know if I don not decide on a different solution.

Yes Altie. I am leaning towards this type of solution. I had a carbon fibre screen on my 990 which was absolutely brilliant. If something like that can fit I will gladly drill the white plastic screen on the 701.

Thanks for the response
