New windshield option for MK2

Happen to bump into this pic shared by a local Versys FB group.



converting Gen2 windshield mounting to accept Gen3 windshields.

Apparently this manufacturer PowerMoto is quite famous in Thailand.

Indicative pricing after current conversion rate would be around US$107 (not inclusive of shipping).

Oh well probably not as large as Calsci though.

Current : Maroon 2011.
- Fender Extender - Radiator Guard - 19mm Nissin radial master - Nissin 4-pot caliper - SS brake lines - Osram Hyper 65W both low/high beam - LED 30w aux floodlights & 3w DRLs - Rear Hugger - Givi crash guards - Yoshimura TRC Carbon - Dynojet PC5 - Scottoiler - R1 shock with Ohlins 14.2 kg/mm spring - Imitation Givi Windshield - Rear Givi rack with 24ltr Givi top box - Bosch dual tones - Z800 stock mirrors.

Up next :
- Protaper SE ATV Low - PIAA Platinum low

That's a really good price for a way oversized screen. How does that bike handle in strong crosswinds?

Nothing as of now yet. Some guy in our local FB page is trying to organise a group buy in my country, but i tried googling out Powermoto but couldnt find any direct link to this particular windshield.

Sorry I have no idea... but with such a big windshield i guess it would be risky to ride above 80mph though. sure does make the bike goes like a sail.

That is nice shield for that price, depending on thickness and if it cracks a lot. I can't see the mounting (or the Super Moto link), but 4 screws like the stock ones are the magic number for holding motorcycle windscreens.

The thing about big screens is the variability in wind flows effect handling. BUT, if you get shield edging (like stealth edging, Saeng ta (?), or Can Do wax spray company), it stabilizes a big screen like a spoiler and makes it more stable for doing 100 mph plus.

From the shape, it did not look as thick as the Givi large screen for our bikes for about the same price. Material type would be interesting as well. It looks like a 'cracker' though from the pick: a nicely contoured thin brittle screen that eventually cracks from normal use. Thicker screens from well known companies are safer bets.

Keep us posted on the results.
