Very low racing screen/ shield cover

Does anyone have any insight into low windscreen or fairing types compatible for this bike to replace the windshield. I'm looking for something to asthetically cover the bolt holes as I am converting it to "naked bike" look. Perhaps the sport screen from a ninja 650? I've seen a few new knockoffs on Ebay and will try one from a Z1000.

no recommendation but would like to see what you come up with.

Maybe cut the stock one down?

Good luck.

I too would very much like to see what you come up with. I have been considering removal of the entire screen and mounting brackets but have yet to get my head around how to cover the gaps. I really would like a fly screen.

I will place a smaller "racing " bikes screen (approx 10" 12") on brackets. I'm hoping to cover the top opening in the centre and I will angle it slightly up with the use of 4 custom bent brackets mounted to the existing bolt holes. Just waiting for my ebay screen to arrive. Consensus seems to be the windscreens cause buffeting. I've always ridden naked bikes and enjoy the added benefit of air flow. Another plus to me is the ability to keep oneself aware of speed and as such I find I ride slower. Which I like .

I also really want a smaller screen. I wonder if someone will eventually make smaller aftermarket brackets that can accommodate for a shorter "racing" screen. I'm over 6' so it's either I buy a hideously large barn door for a screen, or I get a smaller screen to put me over the buffeting and into clean air
