If you like the OEM windscreen, I will be selling mine within a week. It has one tiny crack where it bolts to the bracket (I over tightened it, oops!) but it has been like that for 5 years and never gotten any worse. I can post pics if you're interested.

I don't know what to tell you about the rack, but if you're looking for a soft tailbag that's pretty good sized, I've been loving my Nelson Rigg CL-1040, i can get you pictures of it on the bike if necessary.

Here are some pics of the windshield. Sorry about the bugs. I was going to ask $50 shipped.

I have an Alu-Rack from Twisted Throttle that I really like. It's pretty small but you can bolt a bigger rack on if necessary. My 'touring' set-up on the 919 involves Ortlieb waterproof saddlebags with custom brakcets to keep them from rubbing on my exhaust, rack with a top box, an AirBlade windscreen (from England, it's about the same size as the OEM screen), a Bags Connection quick release tank bag from Twisted Throttle and a waterproof roll-top bag strapped to the pillion seat (if necessary). It's not quite as convenient as hard luggage but it didn't cost me too much, either. I have done week-long business trips and camping trips with with this set-up, it works well.

I'd be interested also. I have one from my old bike, and am trying to figure out how to mount in on my 9er. It's a 2003, so it only has 2 cargo hooks.

Pictures please!!!

I bought the mounting kit that has the hooks. I hook the front two to the metal thing on the passenger pegs and I wrap the back two around the grab bar and hook them to the loops for the shoulder straps in the bag. If you need more pictures for clarification I can take more.

Thanks!
Youve had no problems with the heat from the pipes?
I also heard that people have somehow wrapped the straps under the seat. I was wondering how people did that.

No heat issues, but I am somewhat concerned about the straps riding on the rear plastic, might throw part of a rag between them. I've never tried wrapping straps under the seat, I suppose it would work as long as there's room between the bottom of the seat and the frame

So I attached it to the rear peg assembly and around the grab bar. Seemed pretty stable, but at high speed I think it moves around a little. I can't see it, but I feel it. I think I need a non-elastic strap for the ones that go to the pegs. I think this has a lot to do with it. Also the strap nestled into the joint between the cone shape heat protector and my slip-ons, and either the heat or the rubbing wore out the outside part of one the straps. I don't know if this is a concern or not.

Oh well... 250 mile trip and I still have my gear.
Thanks for your help.
