New Hondaline Windscreen

Paid $117 plus $68 shipping for the factory windscreen from CMSNL.COM in the Netherlands, after many fruitless searches of eBay. The shipping cost hurt, but on the other hand the screen arrived in 4 business days to California. Many domestic shippers are slower. Plus, this is only my second mod to the bike, and after my commute to work today in 29 degree temps it was more than worth it. So now, with a Spencer seat and the windscreen I am comfortable. The next area will be a little suspension work. Thanks to all on this board for the how-to's and vendor advice.

That's some good service there on shipping, even though it was probably expensive. They're hard to come by these days though so it was probably worth it.

So, you like Spencer's work? Or will you be interested in trying a Corbin or Sargent some day?

Spencer's work is great. The Sargent looked good, and I've had good experience with one on an older ZRX1200. So far though, I'm sticking with this seat.

Yeah, $185 for a $80 screen is a bit high. But if you're happy with the screen, then congrats.

The screen was the first thing that went on my new 05.
Don't understand why Honda discontinued it.
