Another modding question...windscreens

Yes, I am at it again. What do you guys think of these?

Puig blue or smoke double bubble?


Gradient black to blue MRA screen? Here is the SV smoke one and what the gradient blue looks like




I tried to find a blue bottom to clear fade, memphis shades makes one, but not for the SV....

Everybody I talk to that has a bubble or double bubble loves it!

I like the colored one.

Have you thought of one of the mirrored colored ones?

I'd go with the smoke. Blue would be doing too much IMO. Get the smoke to accent all the other stuff that's black on your bike.

Yeah I didn't really want a full blue. I really liked the blue to clear fade, but they didn't make that for my bike.

BECAREFULL... most of the mirrored ones I've seen ARE NOT SEE THROUGH... there are exceptions... but just keep that in mind... and if they don't say transparent... I'd ask

I'm also looking into a double bubble screen... the way my screen is right now it slams the air right into my face shield... and with my tank bag... I can't EVER get completely "under" the screen

I just ordered a PUIG double bubble for the R1 last night. Puig f'n rules!!! I went with a clear screen because I just got in my tank cam mount yesterday and needs to see thru the screen.
