Hey Stubbie, you might want to watch out for the rubber strip around the top coming unglued. It just happened to mine so I re glued it with 2 part super glue.

That is exactly what i am struggling with :-)

Thanks Wyno. I'm sort of expecting that. I took mine off and cut the perspex shorter and refitted the rubber. It's bound to happen.

Thinking about going a bit bigger. Maybe the Dart Marlin. I did some GIMPing. Thoughts?

Like the second one better. Probably more functional too. Both look great on the bike.

Mark, did you decide you didn't like the Stryker?

I really liked the look of the Stryker, but it's more form-over-function. The low screen angle doesn't work for me. The factory "big" screen functioned better. I considered getting a custom screen made for the Stryker, but after doing some mock-ups, I decided it looked wrong.

Besides, I'd have to orange-ify it. Hmm. Looks good, doesn't it?

It does look good. Mine seems to work pretty well for me though admittedly, I haven't logged a ton of miles on it since I seem to be driving the sidecar most of the time. I wonder if something like this might improve the airflow?

Well..what do you think? Does it need "Orangeifying". I'm undecided. I'm yet to ride it since I've reinstalled it.

Yeah. Needs some sort of orange flashing. Not a lot, but something.

The lip is the problem. Also, where the screen curves in and back to the fairing, there's turbulence created. It's hard to see in the pic, but it's concave.

After riding it today I remember why I ditched it. It needs a screen without the lip.

Mock a screen up with cardboard, then trim away a bit at a time until you have clean air. Trace resulting pattern onto the original and trim away the offending plexiglass.

Mark, look at Mal's V7 Especiale! That's what would look good IMHO.

This is the only pic I have of the Special. Is this the one you meant?

I painted (poorly) the front screen after not long owning the bike some months ago and recently applied some marine waterline tape as a stripe, happy with the look. I plan to redo but for now the imperfections match the rest of the bike and I’ll wait till the warmer weather to repaint.
