ny new 1000RR (DB screen pics)

Got my 1000RR last friday and immediately installed the Powerbronze clear double bubble screen. Here's some pictures. The screen is pretty good, great look-through quality, almost perfect fit and cool "Fireblade" text instead of "Honda" in the shaded area.

Looks great. I have a Powerbronze on the 929, great screens. I didn't get any nifty text on mine though.....I feel ripped off!

I'm quite happy about it actually. Decreases helmet noise, makes it possible to see the speedo/tacho (I'm 189 cm tall, upper parts of instrument panel invisible with stock screen when not tucked) and does not make the bike look like a sport-tourer like some (especially coloured) higher DB screens tend to do.

Very nice! Did they skip the 954? I've never seen a PB on a 954.

Re: ny new 1000RR (DB screen pics)

Looks great!

How is the quality of the windscreen? Is it thick like the OEM screen, or thin and flimsy like some popular aftermarket screens?

The screen is not very thick, I'd quess (haven't measured) it is a little thinner than OEM, but it doesn't look/feel flimsy either. Finish is (IMHO) very good as is look-through quality. One thing to notice is that there is a (removable) rubber lining in the upper/rear edge of the screen. The lining looks very cool, but I'm not yet 100 % convinced it will stay in place forever. Haven't have trouble with it yet, though.

I've got a PB screen on my 954. It's their version of a double bubble, but it doesn't have the sharp creases that the LP's have. I think that's why I never had any probs w/tach melt. I like it. There's a pic of in the Jennings gallery, DSC00501, it's a side shot, not too great for seeing the screen.
