I have been leaning in this direction after reading about the various screens available. If you look at the stuff they have available as an extension to existing BMW touring screens, I think that is about all you need if you can get the position and angle right.

Thanks a lot Sully for the Bracket pics - I actually was thinking quite near the same thing, just thought about welding extension tubes into original screws and then nuts on the other ends, then a plate and holes in correct places but this may be better and more stiff, too. Let's see what we can do when the weather goes a bit warmer (have to weld outdoors...) Already ordered screens (about 30 eur per piece), there seemed to be small screens for Duke 125-200-390 but those need 4 bolts I think will be happy with 2...

Reason for screens is just crushed flies, no wind protection needed. :D

Check out a KTM 690 screen. Two bolts to mount. Did one on my 1290r and looked killer.

Yes I ordered nr. 760.08.965.044 690 Duke/R Let's see how they do...

The other alternative /with the 4 holes) was nr. 901.08.965.000 125/200/250/390 Duke - but I think will manage with those w. 2 boltholes...

Found some scrap (old cycle cargo rack there was 12mm tube with 1mm wall and 4mm pins... soft but maybe weldable...) have to find something more and will test what comes of it...

Well... I send a somewhat lousy pic to Pyramid Palstics Facebook-site, there they are... Screens, headlight covers, fender extensions and hugger extensions (last 2 barely seen in pic).

Don't know if its seen as a link but: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater

It's in the product reviews...
