Windshield that mounts to the headlight

Recommended Posts

A while back I saw a picture of windshield that was monted on top of the stock headlight cover. It matched the lines on the DR650 cover perfectly. I searched all over and can't find it. If I remember correctly the one I saw was from a bike in Australia. I'm a little worried that I won't find one in the states. I was thinking that the stock V-Strom or Yamaha FZ1 screen might also work. Any ideas? Pictures? Anyone?

Thanks!

Time to get the band saw warmed up!

I've seen a custom job in which the guy used a sportbike shield and cut it to fit, he said he used a band saw with a fine tooth blade and then sanded the edges. I was real curious to it so I asked him a lot of questions.

You can't really tell in this picture, but the plexi is angled to match the headlight cowl. I made the bends using angle iron to keep the lines straight and a propane torch (careful!) to heat the plastic.

Less than $5, but I take it off anytime I ride offroad!
