Took off the Givi screen (will replace in cold weather) with an OEM purchased from Tgoods. Sanded the back side with #600 emery and painted with flat black Krylon rattle can. The view from the rear of the screen suits the surrounding flat black body work, the front is glossy which suits the front end. I replaced the shiny OEM button head screws with black button heads. I only had much-hated Phillips that I had in my hardware cabinet. Today I replaced them with hex drive button heads. Sharp eyes will see the Phillips (I took photos yesterday).
I really like the ride with OEM at lowest setting. It's quieter than either of the two tall screens I have for cold weather and the added breeze is good in hot weather. Less buffeting around the helmet too, plus the V seems less affected by side winds.
I'm slowly getting there. I'd like to lose the passenger foot pegs but it looked like something was missing with that gap there when I removed them. I'm thinking of getting a block of metal to fill the gap, paint it black. I don't want to cut off the frame extensions because I need to attach a retainer there for soft bags to keep the bags off the tire.
