Just a heads up on that national f15, they are very thin and fluttery

One of Charley's scout screens, you can make them quick detach, and have differnt height and width screens for the season.  Tinted or not

Sorry for no better picture, but Charley is the man behind the old vetter and rifle streamliners.    Give Charly a call he is a great guy.

I have the MG fly screen, I've just done a google search for the Givi A770 and it seems that Colemans Suzuki in NZ still have them in stock, heres a link.

W,  Nice photo.  The fly screen/small wind screen has been discontinued according to my sources.  There was a problem with DOT regs.

The fly screen looks great on the bike.

I will just have to check e-bay.

It was advertised as DOT compliant when I bought it a year ago. The factory flyscreen is still available if you look around.

Another option is the Dart flyscreen, shown below. Sold for V7s and Triumphs, it will fit a GRiSO by bending the mounts slightly or fudging an adapter.

Smaller and less expensive, the Dart does a good job of protecting the dash electronics from water and takes some of the wind off. Had one on my V7 Cafe and it was well-made. Here's a link:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If you plan on going with a Dart screen, the screen on that GRiSO is for a Bonneville. No bending, but there are flanged bushings to fill up the recessed area for the headlight bolts and longer bolts used. It takes some of the wind off the torso, but isn't tall enough to get the wind blast over the helmet. I know this...because its a pic of my GRiSO.  Very Happy  Thanks for posting (I was just going to add the same pic to the thread).
I tried the Dart because I knew it would be easier to get than the Guzzi screen and I could get a replacement screen if needed. Dart seems to be a great company BTW.

Functional? Smile We are riding a GRiSO, so it's form over function.

I did a few-hour ride on an SE with the MG "http://www.motointernational.com/store/accessories/large-windshield-kit-for-grisos" and it was very nice; just over $300.

Some of the other screens mentioned here look nice, but they seem to cost even more than the MG touring screen, which was about as good as I can imagine a screen needing to be.

Hello, newbie here from SoCal! I have the Dart flyscreen on my '13 GRiSO and it does a surprisingly good job of deflecting wind blast. It's no problem running 85mph on the freeway now.

Welcome Ginkgo,

You can't just tease us with terse prose, we need pics!  While you're at it, start a new topic in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] section and tell us a little about yourself and show us that GRiSO.

I've tried touring on my GRiSO with several screens and no screen.  The best setup so far, for me, is the GRiSO touring screen and large Famsa tank bag.
I got the screen from Teo Lamers before Moto International started selling them.  For me, it is a good compromise between style and protection.  Plus the
large tank bag helps.  The wind hits me in the helmet and the edges of my sleeves.  I wear a full face helmet and ear plugs.  I may try the MRA clip on X screen
for longer trips next.

That looks like an interesting little widget, I might try one of those too.

I still have my HUGE, ugly 'Street Shield' that I can put on if I want to ride long distance in the winter but to be honest if I'm riding and the weather is foul the Mana makes much more sense.

It works though. Problem is of course that it just encourages licence risking speeds!

Geez, lots of dough for a piece of plastic IMO.

This is what I did on the wife's G11... $75 universal retro fairing (comes black) but the challenge is to make a bracket to install it.
The head light is moved forward a bit and about 3 inches higher in order to be somewhat functional (slightly better than my Givi) and most importantly, clear the signals.
For someone that can fabricate a little, it's a great alternative...

Fortunately [for me, anyway] we're coming off of our winter. As things get warmer I'll enjoy the wind hitting my chest, so this is a decision I can obsess over research for a few more months...

I tend to keep money I make from stuff like selling sloppage sheets and the like in my paypal account and periodically use it to treat myself to little bits of crap for my bikes. Having a few hundred in there I purchased one of those clamp on screen extenders and an iPhone mount today. I'll report back on the screen thingy when it arrives.
