FZ-07 Street Rally Windscreen concept

Recommended Posts

The Concept: Build a MT-09SR inspired Windscreen.
So, I have never been a fan of the windscreens available in the market, I wanted something sleek and aggressive like the motocages. I fell in love with the look of the MT-09SR fly screen.

So I thought I would take a shot at making one myself.
 
I will never claim to be a Photoshop wizard but here is my mock up on the FZ.

Created a basic shape outline of the windscreen in ICEM Surf.

Basic Rigid Shape, not to scale or anything, will probably 3D scan the front end of my bike at work once we finally move to get it exact.

I will probably try to make a mockup out of cardboard sometime this weekend.

Nice work. It's better than I could come up with for sure.
 
But am I the only one that thinks the styling reminds me of bad '70s Sci-Fi? :D

I instantly thought of the 80's Transformers character 'Jetfire' (I'm a 80's kid/dork). Looks like a fun project to take on. [attachment id=2500" thumbnail="1]

That was my thought as well. Unfortunately, I was rear ended on the 28th and the project is on hold until I get the bike back. People who look at their phone more than the road are scum of the earth. 0_Jd_MGWBi_N_JUwx0ck_DCwf_Zfc_VNz_Ygc_EV8e_H_ce9ger_Z_jj52q_XD_WErctyokuf_Gn_Wf_On8_Qo_Z0xa3g_Sjk_Zj27_F_ZA2sz_Mv_Yun3_ODuq_El2_XRXez_GCJpw4hrx_NZkrg_S_u_Nlh_GNo_U90_JU8_MJQz_ESeb_JUy_L_px_Oo_I5_DCCQr_F3m_Gtt8_WUQgtk3_GLw_A7_SLo_LN_q_X8iof5_E1e_Kfg_SKg_Ntt7_M0jgr_S2c5_Bpd_B0_Ij6_Islts_QXBr_Pc_G0oevu_SQn_NTTn_H9_Hu3.jpg

Right! WTF is this? Sorry to see it. Hopefully you didnt get tossed around too much.  I always like to see the culprit/idiot's stupid face...so I can hate them at the appropriate level, as well ask to borrow said phone and spike it.

The FZ was actually holding the focus off the ground, only banged up my knee but i could walk on it and it was fine the next day. Hoping the frame isn't bent. Couldnt open the tail to get my information.

Damn! That;s why I stopped commuting to work by bike. I now wait for the bus and watch people completely absorbed by their phones. I've seen iPads propped up on steering wheels and even school bus drivers texting at red lights. . Even see police DWLD (driving while looking down) and it's not legal here.
 
Have a really close look at EVERYTHING to make sure the frame or swinger or back wheel or even the forks are not tweaked. And even if it looks ok, make sure it tracks a straight line before you let this clown off the hook.

Nc work! I've never worked with fiberglass resin before but is it feasible to put several layers of it over cardboard, let it dry up and then paint/use it as a permanent windscreen? I've watched people make surf boards and it seems it would be the same technique and would work.

Yes, that would work. Use cloth with the resin.
