Mine is short and sweet, and I have done none of them. They were on the bike when I got it

  • Tow Bar
  • K&N Filter
  • Anderson Plug under the seat and jumper leads to connect to it
  • Sheepskin seat covers or optional Air covers
  • Heated grips
  • Handlebar Risers
  • Garmin Zumo GPS

New ones that I have added.
  • Shadow Trailer
  • MC Cruise Cruise control
  • Gone to the Darkside

It may (probably will) be is being added to as time goes by.

I have just added a windscreen extension I found here:

https://midwoodblvd.com/products/motorcycle-windshield-extension?fbclid=IwAR3POcxSMbUcZqGer5QdBRUahYEpUdRLrm6MlaOFWroDd7u7Ft89pgdNjC4

It is supposed to cut windnoise etc, but I haven't ridden with it yet. It was very easy to fit, although very tight on the screen (which I think is a good thing)

I will pass on my impressions of its effectiveness or otherwise after I have had a run with it in place, so after the RTE on Sunday.

So. Good and bad with this.

Yes, it cuts the wind noise.

Yes, it reduces the buffeting at face level and makes riding with the visor open more than a crack quite a bit more comfortable.

No, it isn't really windscreen quality optically. Mine has heat ripples inside the acrylic that distort the view quite noticeably, and make it hard to have a clear view on the dirt (it smooths everything out, visually).

That said, if I can find a broken windscreen that I can salvage the top half of, I will make my own and use the mounts off this.

That's a bit of a bummer!  :fp

I know they aren't cheap but I can really recommend BikeQuip's taller & wider screens.
I nearly always ride with my helmet visor wide open yet I'm still able to look over the top of the screen...

Just had a look at that. Unfortunately the wallet isn't fat enough at the moment.

Anyone got a standard in passable condition cluttering up a corner of the shed?

Pre-Aug 2017, I had a windscreen extension on my ST1300. 



It was effective in reducing the wind noise and buffeting, but I wanted a cleaner look provided by the higher and wider Bike Quip screen, perhaps the same as the one in Russell's link.  The extension went to Denis, not sure if he still has it on his ST1100.

Not sure what I paid, but I'm sure less than the figure in the link.  This was due to a bulk buy back in 2017 courtesy of West Aussie Glen.
Cheers,  Williamson (AKA Michael)

I bought my Bikequip screen back in 2019...and it's still selling at the same price today!  :thumbsup

With the exchange rate back then £167.00 worked out to $321.00, not cheap I know but I reckon it was worth every penny cent...

FOUND IT!!
Dave, back in August you said you were after a section of windscreen (top part). I have one which had been carefully stored away in a place i wouldn't forget  :fp. Anyway, I've stumbled across it so it's yours if you want it. Let me know before I  forget where it is - again.

Met up with Langers very briefly yesterday and collected the top half of a stock screen. Thanks Mark.

When it gets cool enough to spend time in the shed again, I will fit the brackets to it and have another go.

That would have been some decent saddle time for at least one of you.

Not me unfortunately. I was in the car with the Boss, on the way home from visiting the second son.

It didn't end as well as it could have though. I rode from Birdwood back through to Verdun and then onto the freeway. One kilometre up the freeway and the bike started surging really badly. Long story, short, an hour and a half on the side of the road, consultation with motorcycle riding RAA man, and then restarted and quietly rode home without further incident. I strongly suspect loss of coolant so some time in the next month or so (I'm a bit busy with other projects at the moment) it'll be off with the fairing and stripping the bike down for serious investigation of the problem. It is a good thing I have a second bike.

Bugger. I hope it is something minor, Mark.

I really enjoyed the extension, it was far better than i thought
But I upgraded the Spyder to the touring version with the higher and adjustable screen. But it was well worth the experience

MC-Cruise Cruise control is fitted and working well. I got an older system secondhand, but Tony and Frank at MC-Cruise were happy to help with phone calls and electronic manuals for the older stuff that are not yet available on line. They have concentrated on putting the up-to-date stuff there.

It was a bit of a pain getting it fitted and working, but worth the effort.

I will probably upgrade when I can,  but I am happy with what I have.
