Arrived today but they sent me the touring one not the small tinted one I ordered. All that only took 4 months...

Well done for the patient who tolerated the inexcusable long wait, personally I cancelled and bought the Givi screen.

Is it ugly? Can you post some pictures?

I canceled mine, and will order Givi too, because the PP tall one looks ugly and not very functional (looks smaller than Givi).

I’ve got the small tinted on order from gear4 they emailed yesterday saying it was delayed more as quality control wasn’t up to scratch.

I'm after an Ermax sport screen too. Where are you based? I looked on line and a couple of French suppliers wanted over NZ$100 to ship it to New Zealand which is outrageous. I'm currently trying to find alternatives.

Sorry delay but yes that is the screen, they only have the clear one and the tinted is April apparently, and the rest. I might put it on when I have time but spannering other bikes every available minute for next few weeks.

Have now ordered the Ermax sport screen direct from their overseas sales group Speedmax. They removed the French state tax and including shipping, it came to NZ$265. (US$179, AU$255, GBP136). That's the downside of living at the bottom of the world but I wanted it, so prepared to pay the high freight for a little bit of plastic!

No worries and thank you for the good news, I feel a lot better for that! I dealt directly with the Ermax overseas sales dept and they were a pleasure to deal with. Nice to hear quality is up to scratch.

Again, many thanks!

Took a nice route home with the bike in Sport mode.... when you're giving it some, sport is deffo better, of that there's no doubt. When you get to stuff where you need slower speeds and more throttle input the Street is miles nicer... Tricky one as half the route is pinned, half the route you're taking it easy as it's dirty gravelly rubbish everywhere.
But you can really feel a difference in the power delivery when you start giving it some :)

Screen arrived... I can't exactly say it was a joy to fit, but it was far from difficult.

Bars off first, then the risers off, then you fit the screen braces under the risers and between them and the yokes.

This is the part i don't really like... it seems to me as though the standard risers fit into slots on the yokes to align them fully but i'm not convinced that once you fit the braces that actually happens any more, so then you're (well, me) questioning if they're aligned exactly straight when you tighten the bolts to secure the risers.

You do have to torque them and the bar bolts up, so i'm guessing if you've got any alignment incorrect you'd know about it.

It's simply a question then of re-fitting the bars (which of course you marked in advance for position) and then sorting out the screen.

I'll take it out tomorrow lunchtime hopefully and give an opinion on it.

Nice Screen! Interesting how the mountings by screen manufacturers are so different. The Ermax Sport screen has 3 screws as per the attached photo which takes about 5 minutes to mount up. Then comes the problem! The 4 rubber bushes which the screen rests against have a threaded insert in the end. The mounting screws pull into this thread, causing the rubber to bunch up and hold fast in the mounting brackets.

Unfortunately, the rubber mounts are a tiny bit too long to allow the screws to engage in the thread without more force than I was comfortable with applying. What I did was to thin the head of the rubber mounts with a craft knife, taking about 1mm off them. This was just enough to engage the thread.

A pity that minor difficulties stuff up otherwise good products.

It's actually really bothering me. To get it tightened to 45nm I can't see any way to do it without the risers moving very very slightly. The question is, how accurate does it need to be? Pretty close, very very close or completly and utterly exact. If the latter, then I'm struggling to work out how to manage it and torque it close enough.

Can you line one up perfectly and torque it up. Then with trial and error, on the other you should be able to start if off at a slight angle until it straightens slightly when tightened. If that makes sense:grin:
I do think you are overthinking it mate. Had years messing around with off road bikes and and always lined the bar mounts up by eye with no ill effects.
I used to run x-trig phds mounts which even let the bars move around slightly in the mounts.:surprise:

Yes, that's pretty much exactly what i did....

I then sent the screen back.... Wasn't happy. It's either 100% for me, or 0%.
