Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

With the winter approaching I'm thinking about replacing the screen on my half-faired SY to one a bit taller. Anyone know of an aftermarket one to fit?

I got a 'flip up' screen from wemoto for 40 quid, it gives slightly better protection than the standard, but not much.

I fitted the Skidmarx flip-up screen (£35) with mixed results. Up to 60mph it offers much better protection from buffeting and rain. Above that it does not perform very much better than the standard screen.

Sounds like I should save my cash and stick with the original. Cheers.

Hi, I've been in touch with Skidmarx and have ordered a touring screen for CB500-V. I mainly commute and they were very helpful. Contact them, tell them what you're looking for and they may be able to help. I'll let you know how I get on with they touring screen when I get it and have had a few miles with it.

Thanks for the advice but i've ridden the bike for a year now without any real problems. Not the smoothest ride on the motorway but i'll just stick with the original & spend the cash on other stuff. Smile
