I have an 03 with 36,000 kms on it, and the windscreen is starting to crack near the mounts and spidering upwards.

Has anyone had this problem?

Does anyone have a windscreen they are willing to sell?

Q1: What have you been using to clean it?
A: Plexus (so it's not an aggressive cleaner that caused it)

Q2: Does it still have the OEM mounting screws? (Which can't be overtightened without snapping off the plastic heads.)

Q3: Any mods that change the tilt/mounting inerface of the shield and "W" arms? (perhaps changing pressure or flex.)

Is it the Yamaha standard screen or an aftermarket one?

I have a spare brand new standard screen for an 03, but I fear the postage might be prohibitive.

Mr 1300 - I have a spare standard 2001 screen if you want it.

I,ve got 2 standard 01 Yamaha screens on the racking.
But go and buy a aftermarket one as there cheap as chips. :mrgreen:
