Tinted / black screen
« on: July 12, 2015, 12:08:28 AM »
I really need ( well not really..just want!) a tinted screen for my XR. Even though the standard screen is supposed to be srcatch resistant I think it will look worst for wear in no time so a nice tinted one is in order!

Is there a BMW tint option and how dark is it or does anyone have / know of a decent qualty non-BMW screen that will fit?

Thanks

BMW has a standard sized screen in smoke, not seen it in person to see how dark it really is, in the BMW HP parts list.

Puig is releasing a screen for the bike and it appears it may be more geared for touring, have to wait and see on tint options.

Powerbronze has released two screens in either clear or lite tint. I got the larger of the two being shipped over the pond right now. I will post pictures of the screen, a smoke large, once I get it installed.

I have the BMW tinted screen on mine, and it's much darker.

Looks good! Asked my dealer how much the BMW screen is and was quoted £178! does that sound about right?

Yep, that's right, but get it from the BMW parts website I posted a link to in my other thread.

Dark should have been standard, much better.

I have a MRA screen that I bought from hornig.com (or mra.de) for about 95 euro. I got the smoke but they also have dark and clear options. Fit is really good and slight wider, slightly taller seems to reduce the wind buffering by a fair bit.

I will grab a piccy and post.
