It might just be the right part, from the advertising picture it looks like that bracket should go the other way up? i.e. the bracket you're holding is for the R/H side.

I sent multiple pics as the seller requested, but I haven't heard anything back yet. Surely it's the wrong brackets. The seller even confirmed my bike was a 765 RS before sending the kit out, so it seems unfortunate.

Oh maybe. Well I am not near my bike for a few days, will report back this coming weekend. Hopefully I'm just an idiot.

Thank you, Robenever, for a terrific review of the Powerbronze screen and all the great photos! Very comprehensive and very helpful! I spent the last couple of weeks trying to figure out what screen to get for my Speed Triple. I ordered the Triumph OEM screen that's currently available and when I received it, the installation instructions are to drill holes in your stock painted mini screen and attach the windscreen visor on top of it. Uh, no. Not for me. That one went back today. An expensive mistake considering the shipping costs. But hey, my bad, I should have done more research before ordering that one. I was informed by the person at Pure Triumph in FL that the previously available Triumph OEM screen has been banned by DOT and is no longer available (except perhaps here and there on eBay I found). I wanted one that didn't attach over the top of the painted stock mini screen. And I didn't want one that replaced of the painted stock mini screen. So that meant no in the Puig. So....I ordered the Powerbronze screen in Dark Tint yesterday morning! Whew!!

Does anyone know if its from Triumph or if its aftermarked?
And maybe where i can buy one?
I was informed a couple of days ago by a sales person at Pure Triumph in Florida that this Flyscreen Visor Kit A9708266 has been banned in the US by the DOT. I did see it available from a couple of eBay vendors. The flyscreen visor that Triumph now offers for the Speed Triple looks significantly different and requires drilling holes in your stock painted mini screen for installation. What the heck?!

Seriously though why ruin the looks of your lovely Street triple with an ugly plastic add-on? The A9708266 fits and completes the look of the bike at very reasonable cost.

Agreed, the oem visor is the only one that looks good. None of them does anything to cut down the wind anyway. They all just ruin the look of the bike, my opinion only.

Yeah so I had the brackets swapped left and right, I'm an idiot. Hopefully I have time to try the installation tomorrow.

Alright, here it is. It's the real deal, it keeps a lot of wind off the chest, and out of the bottom of my helmet (I'm 5'10"). Looks a bit dorky / adventure-ish, whatever I literally don't care. I will remove the Triumph accessory screen later, I promise. Installation is a bit of a pain due to access of the lower bolts, but nothing insurmountable. The craftsmanship seems a bit on the sketchy side, but it seems to work and fit properly in the end. There is no rubbing like the Puig kit.

Oh yeah, someone sent me the source of these screens: https://www.gpkompozit.com/urun/stre...-cam-2017-2018
