If anyone runs across a dark tint stock size windscreen let me know please.

You might want to check out the Cee Bailey screens. They come in various tints, but I not sure how dark.   RayK                                                                 COG# 8125  CDA# 0273  '08 ZG 1400  '07 KLR650  '99 CBR1100XX (sold)  '94 Ducati 900SS/CR (sold)

they're all larger than stock. i know that's the trend / prefered shield, but i like the stock size. it works well for me.

Did you try MRA windscreens? They are a German company and seem to have a pretty good rep.

The web site for MRA screens is www.mra.de  You can e-mail them. info@mra.de  I don't know what their selection is like but I am looking into it for my bike. I am looking for a slightly higher windscreen than the stock one.

Just heard from MRA windscreens. They don't have anything yet for the C14. Try another outfit I guess.

7JuRock is sending me a sample of their tint. Gustafsson Plastics has one but you have to drill your own holes.

Frugal suggestion- what about picking up a second OEM shield, cutting it down to the size you want and taking it to a local automobile window tinter?  just a thought... :quest:  Steve K.  '02 Concours  COG# 6550  AMA# 965469  'No matter where you go, there you are...'

UPDATE    gave up on Gustafsson sending some samples after contacting them 4 times. i wasn't thrilled with having to drill the holes either. contacted Eagle Screens in Australia. stock size, tinted, shipped for around $170 US. they should be close to shipping. i'll post a picture when i get it.

That looks real good, is it the same size as the OEM? And if so, do they make them in any other sizes?  Claude / BC, Canada  COG #8173  2008 C14 aka Ribbit II
