You're so right, Daves, it really is a personal, aesthetic choice. For the time being I'm keeping the Givi A750 setup that I currently have on my '07 1100. I think it looks okay and it works very well, but when I saw that "bullet cowl" I immediately thought it would complement the GRiSO's lines and if it functions well that would be a bonus. As I said, it warrants further investigation, but I'm not sure I want to invest so much on an experiment. I'll try to get to a dealership at some point and measure one up to see if it's even worth pursuing further.

And Blue, that last Yamaha one you linked to looks pretty good as well, but I think I'm done drawing these up for now.

Here's my G with the A750:

I made some stainless steel struts to stiffen the mount and minimize vibration and buffeting:

I agree with Keener, that's a good job. That screen looks big enough to make a good difference.

That bullet Stryker looks very good.
Kinda pugnacious and reminds me of Brian Johnson's flat cap.

I've installed that one on my 1100 and while it was cheap from a local retailer at $70, it was involved to make it works.
I wouldn't recommend it as I had to make a bracket to relocate the headlamp up and outwards.
Also had to trim the bottom part to clear the turn signals.
It's the best looking one out there as far as retro look goes. Be perfect on a little V7...

Since I got my new 2013 Diavolo Nero I decided to take the plunge and order a Yamaha Stryker Bullet Cowl and see if it would work on the GRiSO. I'm pretty pleased with the results. And it functions well too. After I finished the install I took it out for a spin and found it to be a vast improvement over the naked bike. I'm looking forward to a longer test ride, but I did manage to take it up to 80mph on the freeway and it deflected the wind nicely. I also like that it comes in a matte black finish, a perfect match to the Diavolo Nero's paint scheme. And I think it compliments the GRiSO's lines nicely too, both from the front and sides and even from behind where its shape mirrors that of the handlebars. Biggest downside? Around $300 U.S.

The Yamaha brackets wouldn't work, but I fabricated some stainless steel struts like the ones I had used on the Givi fairings I'd had on the GRiSO Rosso. This provides a firm mount and eliminates any vibration. The lower edge is notched around the turn signals and this holds the bottom in place.

Good job street. Best looking fairing I've seen on a GRiSO.

If I lived in Seattle or, FTM, anywhere in the PNW rain-forest region  Wink , not sure I'd be man enough to ride a motorcycle, much less a naked.

So, I understand the fairing.  And, at least the latest version, above, is not like the one I saw in New Hampshire last summer ...

No No No


I have the OEM screen on mine, but I am thinking about pulling it, the C-Bows, and Stelvio hand guards off.  I certainly do not regret getting those, and they served well.  But I now use the GRiSO (mostly) for decent-weather day romps, not for multi-dayers as shown below.  A tank bag is about all I need for my cell phone, CCW's mate ... and bail money.   Very Happy

I do like the Dart screen, tho, and may swap for one of those.

Street, That's a nice clean install. I think it matches the lines much better than the Givi.

Bill, I recently fitted an OEM screen like yours to my GRiSO. I found it to be much more effective than the fly screen that came with my bike. I thought about buying the Dart Marlin before I scored the unavailable OEM on eBay. I can't think of a reason to swap yours out as I think the hardware is far superior on the OEM. Of course, if it is a color issue you could always just bring your screen to a tint shop. In the mean time I concur with Mark regarding that oversized fairing found in NH!

It is a little bit Batmobily, but also the only GRiSO fairing so far that I find really very beautiful. Excellent job!!

It looks GREAT in person. This morning was the monthly Moto International Moto Guzzi brunch down in Street's neighborhood.

A screen or fairing just doesn't seem natural for a GRiSO, but they do have their purpose.  I chose the Deflector DX as 1) it's less than $100 US and 2) it comes off in seconds leaving just the handlebar mounts.  Me on nice Feb morning:

I'm very surprised at how much I like that Stryker cowl.

An immaculate install.  I would expect no less from my friend Street.  And I like the fairing in profile - the line of the headlight cowl nicely flows to the forward line of the "wings."  But, to me, the "eyebrow" over the headlight, with its slightly squared upper corners, just looks a little too "bat-wing" for me.  I still prefer my Givi 770 bikini fairing, which is NLA.

I have a set of Stelvio hand guards on my 1100, but I  think they will come off this season.  Functional, but clunky.

I will reserve final judgement until I see Street's ride in person.  Sometime this summer.

(as if my opinion meant shit.  This kind of thing is so subjective)

I installed a larger screen than a Dart Marlin today. Comfy, comfy!

I like Street's Yammy fairing Thumbs Up
but I would change the screen to one with less Lip ? at the end. I removed my shitty aftermarket screen for a recent trip and found that my noisy shoei helmet was a LOT quieter Shocked
Mal , you were right, I got rid of the big mirrors, made it better, but still noisy at road speeds. if I stand up, much quieter, so threw the fairing away..... Much quieter. but I would still like a bikini fairing of some sort.
