GEN 1 Screen

Looking to fit a small screen as my bike does not have one, just the holes were it fixes! I read somewhere about using a safety face shield and cutting it to suit? Anyone heard about or done similar?

Good luck in your search - seems to me there should be lots of stock screens sitting around, since so many Gen 1 owners have taller shields. Here's my Kitty-Litter shield I made for my KLR, always gets lots of comments

My 2001 came with a tall screen which I didn't want so I looked around and posted ads for a stock one with no success. Finally I tried the dealer and was pleasantly surprised at the relatively low cost. you may want to check it out.

At one time I was playing around with a removable extension for a wind shield. I use some Lexan (not plexiglass, it cracks) from a home improvement store. It worked fairly well. I formed it with a heat gun and a torch. Practice on scrap if you use the torch.

GoMotor has good advice as usual; Lexan (actually a trade name for a polycarbonate) is much safer and more workable than Plexiglass (which is a trade name for Acrylic).

Cheers,
Dave
