Would love to see it without the painted windscreen, not bad for a first try though.

I agree, I did not really notice the screen at first. I am not sure how keen I am about it. It is a big rave over her in the States. Lots of folks that custom paint there bikes to it. Kinda reminds me of that old Duc 906 from the 80's..

Well, you can't see out of it would be my main concern....what screen are you running on your D600??....I switched mine out to an Airblade years ago...massive improvement over the OEM screen.

Ebay is your friend. I bought a "lot" of misc hardware off ebay for like 35 bucks shipped. It had more than I needed, but after adding up what I was looking for in new OEM bolts, it was a no brainer.

Maybe its that I'm so tall but I have always looked over my screens rather than through them... My Ninja 650R had two dark tint screens that I didn't seem to notice, even in full tuck... On the D650 I have the Airblade that sits higher than stock and I'd really have to get down low to see through it....

I was on the fence about the wind screen but the original was scratched pretty heavily so it looked terrible up close and I ended up liking how it turned out, reminds me of a race bike this way. As for visibility, I am 6' 1" and I dont think I could look through the windscreen if I tried, even in full tuck my line of sight goes right over it, plus on really sunny days it makes the digital gauges way easier to read.

SquarEuro:
I hadn't thought about the ebay "box of misc parts" approach but that would be a good idea to have some extra triumph parts laying around. Thanks!

Surfguygriff:
Here is a pic before I did the tank and windscreen so you can kinda imagine what it would have looked like.

I'm average height, but I do like to lay down very low at speed if I'm "on it"...part of my continuing quest to improve my body position (not quite realised yet).

Stock right now. looking for a new one. I actually polished my old one, it came out pretty good with just a little effort, so I will really go to town on it over the winter just to see(excuse the pun) how it turns out.

I almost stopped at white myself it had a cool storm trooper feel to it, but red white and blue was the way I seen it so I kept going
