Yes. You can buy a standard screen and trim the heck out of it. Or you can buy a Ducati screen that fits one of their dual headlight models, some bracket fabrication may be necessary (not sure). Or you can grab a screen from Fly-n-Cycle that fits around the Dominator lights: http://www.flyncycle.com/acatalog/Do...y-Screens.html Hope this helps. Keep us posted on what you do -- I'll be interested to see the final result.

hey 3dcycle,

Most people put a buell lightning screen on with the dominators:



I've done something different, doesn't provide any wind protection, but it is another option. Here is a photoshop. I'll put some real pictures up tommorow.



Ken, which ducati screen can be used?

My bad. A tired post. I meant Buell. Must have 1098 on the brain Thanks for the pics -- that looks great.

Does the mounting hardware for the Buell screen work on the 919, or do you have to fabricate some parts?

I think the buell windscreen goes on easily with just a few spacers and the buell bracket, but only if you have the buell headlight. With the dominators you do have to fabricate something or other, probably the easiest would be some basic brackets that would lower the position of the headlights. The buell holes are at the top of the headlights, the dominators as you know are in the middle.

Or you could just get a setup with the buell headlight included, but the dominator lighting is nice.

So that first pic is with the buell headlamps? I was wondering how they were mounted because I noticed they were lower. I guess if the mount is on top that would explain why they are lower.

Yes, the first picture is the buell lights. Dr. Sardonicus's I believe. The lights kind of hang from the mounting bolts.

Another option comes up on ebay:

seems nice and easy to mount. But on principle it seems way overpriced for a piece of rectangular plastic.
