Dash Screen protection

I don't know if anybody else is using one - but I have just ordered some toughened glass overlays (like mobile phone things) - I've been using this particular make on my work phone (I don't have a personal one) and it really did go on with no bubbles.



A Plus is they now offer matte anti reflective finish since June 2019. https://www.protectionfilms24.es/c/A...d=KTM+790+Duke


I bought a 3 pack - Just in case. https://www.protectionfilms24.es/art...e-3935810.html

Using something similar here in the uk, not sure if it will help with the known screen cracking issue but who knows.

I have a matte overlay and the screen is so much easier to see in bright light. Amgreat improvement for not much money.

Ok - well it helps if you measure twice and apply once. And use your proper close up reading glasses.



The Matte finish is excellent but I got it a bit skewed.



But that's why I have spares - I sort of expected to mess it up a bit.

I went with speedo angels because it was all that was available at the time, no dash issues with it and it is so much easier to see! It is a bit less sharp though in the daylight, but i'll take that over not being able to read it at all.

I am using a matte screen protector I ordered on Amazon. OK stuff, although I do have a small bubble. Not the end of the world. I will do a better job when applying the second one.

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

I am looking at a similar kit with two (2) of each. Have you tried both (matte/ clear) and which do you like better?

I am running the kit off Amazon that has anti-glare and ultra clear options. I installed the anti-glare and have had no issue. Easy install and looks great, plus extra sheets if you mess up or need to replace later. Same kit "qcs" mentioned, but for $3 more get 4 instead of 2.

do you have anymore info on this?
I got up this morning an d took the bike out of the shed to find the screen has a smal 4mm crack in the side and strange white dots in the glass/plastic.
you can't feel any of them meaning the crack is on the bottom not the top, the dealer has taken pictures to send to KTM so they can 'decide' if it was external damage or a warranty.

I'm pretty sure its not external simply because the crack is underneath, but i can't prove it. and there is a mark (not a dent or scratch) on the side of the dash.
