Lightbulb Pic and info request F-18 Series wind screen

title says it all really. Ive really been thinking about a F-18 screen for a while now did a search and didnt find much.

If you have one tell me how you like it how it fits and how well it works at speed.

Pics are also good

will be used when I have to take the bike to office for work (40mi trip on freeway each way) or if I eventually decide to do a few day trips. all thoughts are welcome.

I just bought my 919 last week. It came with an F-16 screen which should mount like the F-18. It does a good job of deflecting the wind at freeway speeds. Even though it's thin plastic it doesn't vibrate much and is very strong. I don't much like the mounting hardware... it doesn't flow well with the OEM aluminum headlamp brackets.

the orange bike in zookmor's post is mine, showing screen from cockpit. I like the screen, works better than the oem. it does vibrate a little but so what. I'm not crazy about the mounting brackets but they work. Overall I'd say it's a good product, reasonably priced, easy to install and looks good.

I have one on mine, it does a reasonable job of blocking the wind.
