I'm looking to install mine tomorrow, but I've had issues with getting my hand behind it to get the two bolts on. Any easy way to go about it?

Also, anyone have theirs tinted? I'm thinking of doing that to go with the all black.

Thanks for any input. Great forum here!

Thanks to the paint suggestion from RBinTex; got my screen painted black and installed it today. Took it out for a good ride this evening. Sure makes the wind hit my forehead more than without the screen, but I like it anyhow.

Looks like potential safety issue...
How do you figure that? It is just barely tall enough to keep the wind off your speedometer, it is just about on a level with my belly button. LOL!

I have been running mine blackened out for over a year now without a thought that I was creating a safety problem.

Looks sweet, you did a good job on it and it looks like mine when it was new.

Now take some of that black left over paint and do the speedo housing! :-D
The way it should have been from the factory.

My valve covers are next. :grin:

It really is low. I can see perfectly clear over it. The only thing is it pushes a lot of wind up toward my brow and makes it noisy in my 3/4 helmet.

The only issue I had with installing is that a normal size wrench was too long. I used a shortened wrench to tighten.
(The screen in the picture is a national cycle windscreen, I put the boulevard screen on in warm weather)
