New handguards & windscreen :D

The Revzilla came through today. I had the package delivered to my post office's address so I could put these on before I left work for the day.

It was a beautiful 70 degree day in NY, and the mail was light so I was done by 2, and farkling the V by the back dock..

Zero Gravity S/T windscreen and Barkbusters VPS handguards. Install was pretty seamless, thanks to that sweet breaker bar in the tool kit. The aluminum taps the windscreen, but I think I can still go full lock. (If not, I can still do a 14' U turn in my driveway)

I took a nice long ride and snapped a few or many photos. (The bike is posed on a road I deliver mail on. Pretty dusty in that truck come spring....)

After I inadvertently created my short clutch lever, I just made a little ball of Sugru and stuck it on the end- it looked almost stock. Sugru is great stuff for bikes! (Not affiliated, etc. etc.)

Haha, Funnny! Looks cool, I literally just ordered some. We'll have to start a Versys Sugru Hacks.

I am running a very similar set up. I believe that you can raise the wind screen to a steeper angle though it will require the relocation of the M5 wellnut or the purchase of some new ones. I can get full lock on my set up with the screen mounted more steeply. I have had no problem with buffeting with that setting at 85mph or so.
