For me on my FZ-1 it was just cosmetic.

I've left the cut down shield on my FJR clear.

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, how fast I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I RIDE...EVERY DAY. "Ferret"

Just for appearances. I want a black screen. Itís been cut down, so I donít look through it anyway.

When I was a track-a-holic on my R1 & R6, I used to think that the FJR was an old man's bike. Then I got one and absolutely love it. Hey...wait a minute!
