American sportsbike flyscreen and renthal UL combo?

I've got my renthal UL's and am pretty set on the American Sportbike M2 flyscren in CF.

5352 - Carbon Fiber M2 Twill Wind Screen

I've seen this set-up on many of your bikes, Anything I need to know about the flyscreen and brackets? They work right out of the box right? No clearance/fit issues on the stock light and with the UL bars to take into consideration before just bolting it on?

Thanks

That is the Buell Screen, and there is a seller on eBay that has them for like 89 bucks. Check there before you buy.

Yes I've seen them on ebay but not for maybe 4 months now, our buddy in the Phil's dose not trust ebay 100% possibly delivery problems? from what I know it's like a coin toss you might receive it and you might not.
Oh yeah we still want to see your bike!

Ah, I see i've just been looking in the wrong places.

Thanks for the links justintyme. I'll see if I can work something out and get over my ebay-phobia.

My bad ideajones, I'll get a pic up when I get the chance

This is the guy that had the exact one you are looking for. (I still had it saved in my favorite sellers list) It appears he's not selling anything at this time but you may be able to shoot him a message to see if he has them?

I did just that. waiting on a reply. I hope I can work something out in the next few days, I have a friend coming in from the US in a week, and that saves me the shipping and taxes vs. if the item gets shipped to me here in the Philippines.

Will let you guys know how it goes. Thanks for the heads-up!

Okay, I slapped the renthals on today. They feel great, much more the position I wanted. One small snag, the I couldn't put the "clamshell" of the left hand controls back on properly. There's a gap between the two halves that always cracks open on the last couple of twists of the screws that hold the halves together? Is there a trick to it? I suspect there's something about the position of the disc that covers the right side of the contols that's somehow getting in the way. I drilled the bar for the locator pins, so I know it's not that...

Any suggestions?

(Ok, made a booboo and somehow placed this comment in the blog section.)

Just wanted to add to that while I like the more aggressive position of the renthals, contrary to what most everyone has said, I find these bars a lot buzzier than the stockers. Maybe I need heavier bar ends.
