What to do which 2 holes on the windsheild

Hi V Bikers,

Continuing from the thread "Is there a good touring windsheild for V"
http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ead.php?t=2807

Had raised the Puig screen by 2 inches. For me, this is a compromise which am happy with. To do this had drill 2 hole on the screen to make it higher.
Due to this had been left with 2 holes which did not look pretty.

Had a old leather bag which would be like a screen pouch.
Used butterfly nuts in the inside for easy removal if need be.
Maybe will change the cable tie to something easier to tie it up if not in use.
Had tested it and no flapping around at speeds.
Since then have resprayed the old leather bag with black paint for it to look new and waterproof.

Thank you

Nice work. I'm thinking of drilling my GIVI screen for the wide mounts on the MadStad brackets. Which leaves me wondering what to do with four mounting holes inside the outside four.

The other option, to get another shield with the vstrom holes or none. But I like the width of the givi but think it will be more stable on a wider mount. Plus give me more room for my GPS.
