I prefer the smaller screens.  But for now i am not going to run a screen.

In that case I can recommend the 690 Touring screen then - works great for its size and fits perfectly.

I have the same screen as BLK - looks terrible but works a treat. Almost like riding my 660 Tenere
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

Here is the screen that I fitted. Comes from Screens for Bikes in Australia.  Riding at 120 km/h seems quite stable with no buffeting.

BLK, I have the same screen, but on my bike the headlight fairing forces the screen bracket up, causing the screen too point too far back, so that it is sort of in the way when you stand.

I'd like the screen to be fitted into a more upright position.

Agreed, I am designing a hinge mechanism to tilt screen independently from the handguards

The Rack is in progress , I have the proto type, I have designed it wider . I prefer wider so a duffel bag can lay across without tilting over to one side. Pic to follow. I never made the foot pegs.  The foam air filter is from the Rade tank mod. It has a metal cage inside, Which long story causes problems with sealing. So this plastic inner cage will do the trick.

Hi Ian

Can you please elaborate on the steel filter cage causing problems? I’ve just fitted the Rade garage tank.

Also with your luggage plate I would extend the rear a bit further out so that you can fit your roll bag on and still put fuel in without removing luggage.

Hi Adam. The steel cage in the Twinn Air filter  has 2 wigs on each side that rest on top of the airbox ( Rade garage only)  the foam filter sits on top of this arrangement Not good because dust gets in ,in between that steel cage wings and flat air box surface . I know .my bike needed new valves.  So do away with that metal cage and fit something inside the foam so it does not get sucked into your motor. For now i fitted some plastic fence inside. It works well. I was at the spring manufacturers yesterday to design a square spring that can fit into the foam. . This may take another 2 weeks.  The back plate i shortened on purpose because the overhang after the rear bolts was to much, To much pressure on the back of the plastic tank\ sub frame and inserts into the tank.  A  bag can fit on the rack only. And a roll bag on the seat. That is why i have made extra size slots on the front of the rack.  The rack is 30cm long and 27cm wide. They will be R750 . Note i am not a vendor.

Hi Ian

Thanks for the explanation. I will have a look at the filter setup. I would be interested in one of those springs when you get them.

After removing my back shock 3 times to set the pre load. I needed a stiffer spring  65nm to a 75nm. I  was offered a Pre load adjuster from TBR suspension. Which i got them to fit to the shock.. This has made life so much easier to set up the shock.

While i was at it i got TBR to look at the front forks as well. There is not a lot that can be done. But the did a small amount of  shimming . The said these forks are not the best WPs that were made. Yet to test.
