    Wind protection, low key style

    So I've got this bone for a



    no, just the flyscreen on it. I'm getting sick of not having any wind protection.

    I mean, naked is cool and all, but I like having a little something to tuck under when I feel like it, or for example like when I went 110mph on my Hawk a couple days ago on the freeway before that guy in the truck got in my way.

    So, aside from the hideous red cut to fit example I saw on the net, does anybody know of a generic flyscreen or a place to find a buell XB9/12 one cheap? Thanks!

    Buell parts are cheap - plenty of people rock the flyscreens from the tubeframe models on their NT's.

      I have a flyscreen I was going to put on my racebike.

      It has some gouges and needs some bondo but is has no cracks.

      If your interested go look on ebay and see what they are going for then make me an offer.

        I have seen the Blast wind screen on a hawk and it looks awesome. I plan on adding one to mine and I don't think it takes away from the Street Fighter/naked look.

        Also the Blast is a round screen to go around a round headlight.

          Well, I appreciate the advice, but the thing is, I put a picture up of an XB12S because that's the flyscreen I want. I don't want the kind that fits around a round headlight, because I think that appears anti-hot.

          Doc, thanks for the offer. I'm also considering changing the lights around for a pair of BMW E28/30/32/34 headlights.

            Holeshot makes a universal fit similar to the Buell screen...

              This thread is a reading comprehension test gone horribly wrong.

                  The guy from the scrotal analogy is a genius. Having mentioned twice that I don't want the flush fit to a round headlight design, and having three people suggest it anyway, he managed to prevail by not being the fourth.

                  I hate to come off as sarcastic, but I mean I wrote what I did for a reason.

                    I know about a round headlight fairing, for a Ducati. Oh, and one from a buell, no, two or three different round headlight flyscreens from buell, and I think honda 599's and 919's.

                    I know there are others....

                              Wait, I mean thanks. It's a shame that $70 is my idea of a billionty dollars. Maybe I'll do it anyway.
