Hi,

Could you tell me which small windscreen you have put on your bike?
Brand, type, model.
It looks nice on your bike and it's one like this that I want to put on my FJR 2005.

Thanks

Any suggestions would be great

Check these out on eBay. I’ve seen them listed for later models. I might pick one up next summer. Summers here are BRUTAL.

What year screens are interchangeable? What fits my 2017 in other words?

Gen1, Gen 2, Gen3 all are non-interchangeable. Each has their own system.

Real easy to do yourself. You can even do it a few inches at a time to see if you like it. I made a line with blue painters tape and used a fine blade on a jig saw on slow speed. Took my time cutting it. Then wet sanded with fine sand paper. .
Wow, I think that is even lower than mine, which measures 14". Cut essentially the same way. Feels great in this summer heat. I don't notice any more wind noise than riding a naked bike since my head is in clean air.

I’ve been finding that i pretty much only use my sport screen all the way down, or all the way up. When you have a screen this small, is all the way up useful at all or does it make it a blustery mess in the wrong place? Haha

I usually run it all the way down. Haven't had a reason to run it up yet. I'll give it a try tomorrow and let you know.
