mike , are you retaining the original spring?
AT this stage i am...i really dont no alot about setting up suspension but i do know a guy that does...i got some advice from TLSDOUG so if when we install the damper and set up the suspension the guy says the oem one wont do then i will change it.....bugger..just reread your question...sorry....no not like the bitubo...i keep the spring.

Sorry, but i don't understand how someone can install a screen where watching through is not possible? I mean, it is not a screen when it isn't transparent or? In Germany it is not allowed. Looks ok, but..

If your no large person I can understand you like a transparrent screen. Large people would really have to fold themselves to try and look through it.. well I do at least and I'm only 1,9m+

I through it but I am only 5'8 and 160lbs. It looks great but my initial reaction was faltenhals' and then I remembered it doesn't matter if I can see through it :)

...here in Japan the cops would give you shit about a screen like that, that's why I'm waiting to test the DB carbon clear screen/trim on its way here from SK...

Can you get a dark smoke screen with Carbon trim for a TLS anywhere?

Those writing a law stating you have to have a transparent screen haven't ridden the TL. :coocoo I'm 5'7" and cannot try looking through it unless I plant my chin on the tank. Did it once on a TL several years ago when I tested it's top speed. I have a black screen now, and love it.

It's rather more secure since it blocks the sun from reaching the gauges. No reflecting light making them hard to read.

Love that bike of yours Mike. A real beauty and the CF screen looks great. :hail
