OEM screen. Worked better than the aftermarket I have on long trips.

SW-Motech on my Gen 3 as I had SWs on BOTH my Gen 1 V650s.





home-made ABOVE the speedo.

I will post pictures later but I have the PUIG windshield with an added spoiler. I am 6'1 and looked for a tall windscreen forever. I couldn't find one that seemed tall enough and the stock PUIG was not, it put the wind right in the middle of my helmet and I had TERRIBLE buffeting. The spoiler made by PUIG fixed that issue perfectly.

As for the GPS I use SW Motechs above the spedo kit. It works like magic with my ram mount. It was a little costly and the install is time consuming but I think it is totally worth it!

I use a u bolt ram mount to the left side of the handle bar. Not front and centered but not very expensive.
