Howdy!
I picked up a 2016 MT-07 HO last month. Licence restrictions come off in a couple of weeks, so looking forward to getting it going.
I'll post some pics if anyone is interested.
 
Cheers!

Haha, fair enough!
Here's a quick one from when I put the bar-end mirrors on; I'll get some more soon.

It's the Yammy genuine sport screen mate.... I reckon it actually does have a purple tinge. It's a bit bulbous I reckon; I might switch it out to something else a bit smaller. I'm thinking about switching the bars out as well to something like Renthal or Pro Taper's.

Does that windscreen work well to keep wind off you?

I've only had the one ride (shhh, don't tell anyone); I came from faired bikes and, to be honest, I was shocked at how smooth the airflow was. just running my hand up and down behind the screen whilst riding did show that it was displacing a fair amount of air. I was impressed... but it looks a bit bulbous.

No worries. I've got a rad guard to install over the weekend and some other stuff; I'll crack out my dSLR and take some decent shots if that's useful for you.

Welcome. I have an HO model also.
 
There are no windscreens that work well and look great on this bike. It's a case of function over form sometimes, especially on longer highway trips where you will feel the windblast on longer rides.
 
This site has lots of great info, especially the tips and tricks section.

For those of you that don't know. Tassie is small state with incredibly good motorcycle roads. Legendary for those in the know. I havn't even had a chance to go there and ride yet. Welcome binary man.

Stickshift, I have a screen that works extremely well. Of course I had to make it myself ( OK the base deflector design is from Cagiva head design blooke from a few years ago but the development is mine).

However as a large proportion of the riders on this forum are looks driven, most ain't gonna like it. I, on the other hand, love it.

Understandable Greg. I definitely like to go for function over form.

 

There are lots of posts on this forum asking for the best looking most effective windscreen (which totally makes sense) - but I don't think one exists for this bike. The Dart Manta looks ok from some angles and offers decent wind protection.

 

I have a puig touring screen that works pretty well up to about 110 km/h, but I take it off when I'm not traveling long distances as I think the bike looks better without it. I'm not particularly vain about the bike (hell, I must be one of the few that likes the standard rear fender and left it on!), I just like her to look her best sometimes.
