Hi!

XSR 700 is my first naked bike and I must say, I'm suprised with the wind - really over 100km/h it's disturbing for me. My question is, whether the small windscreen that Yamaha offers in accessories would help? For me it seems very small but from the other side, I dont like the idea of large windscreen that would ruin the look of this beautiful bike... so assuming that I ride @ max 120/140 km/h and on average around 80-90km/h would this small windscreen do any difference? Any experience from Your side?

Thanks and take care

I havent tried the Yamaha scree but on other bikes I have been suprised by how much difference even a small screen makes..its the way it forces air over your helmet and off your chest that makes the difference..

I tried with and without it, I currently have the small fly screen on. It's a bit better with, especially on the chest, but not miraculous either. In other hand, you will get use to it and you will have a strong neck :)

Interesting ... however it really ruins the look of the bike... so either I get used to wind or get used to an ugly look with big windscreen :)))

I'll stay without the screen ... I'm mostly commuting - no long trips ...

Thanks guys for Your comments!

take care

Hi all,
I got this little screen from Puig, dead easy to fit, helps on the motorways, and I think doesn't detract from the looks.....Im happy..:smile2:

That's unfortunate since having that ability to swap parts can go a long way. It might even be possible to rig together some brackets form the hardware store with washers and screws to make it work, just a few more dollars added to your purchase price of the shield

Thanks for your answers.

Today I visited my local Yamaha dealer and checked both bikes... I think it would fir the XSR700 if I am not mistaken.

Anyway, found a forum about the XSR900 and asked a guy who just installed it for more pictures of the fitting parts. Let´s see what he sends.

I also finally decided to go with puig and it's great! Really helps with the wind... however I tried to fit this like on your photos but the windscreen was moving up and down - could not fix it so I moved this a bit closer to the speedometer and it's ok & looks better I think...
