Got a new windscreen tonight

After commuting to work for the past couple weeks (about 66 miles round trip), I decided that I could use a little more wind protection. I started looking for a slightly larger windscreen.

After looking at several different brands and reading reviews on different forums, I came to the conclusion that it was a matter of personal preference whether a person liked the way that the windscreen worked on the bike. Everyone had good things to say about the particular screen that they bought.

It seemed that they all diverted more air and there wasn't much difference if any between the performance of the different brands. The MRA Vario seemed promising in function, but I didn't really like the way that it looked or the cost. I decided to order a Laminar Lip for the bike. Delivery was pretty quick and inexpensive.

Here are pictures of the Lip uninstalled, the stock fairing on the bike and the Lip mounted on the bike. It is designed to on top of the stock fairing.

Installation was as easy as removing the four stock bolts and then inserting the provided longer bolts through both pieces with some washers and into the stock mounting locations. The screws that they sent are nylon and I am not impressed by that. I will probably look at picking up some longer allen head machine screws similar to the stock ones that I took out.

Yes, I know the bike is dirty. :eh: I got caught in the rain on the way home from work. I cleaned and lubed the chain before I installed the Lip, it'll probably get washed this weekend.

I'll report back after I've had a few rides with it and let you all know how well it's working.
