Good Morning Guys,
I normally don"t post on forums but, I have gleaned so much information from you guys that I thought I would share my build for the next guy to benefit from.
First, I live in AZ and I drive my 2017 SCR just under 100 miles a day to and from work. The bike has just over 4/K miles on it. I have made a few mods to it (see pics).
I have changed the pipes and breather system to a V&H 2 into 2 Staggered/Slashed system designed to fit the Bolt and added their VO2 naked air intake. I am also running a Dyno Jet Power Commander V and have had the bike dyno'd seeing how their is no available map for my exact system. I have changed the bars to Renthal bars and added Adventurer pegs, I have a dark smoked Fly screen on it (not good for much other than looks :grin2:) I have also chopped off their hideous tail section and created my own license plate bracket ($40.00)
I still need to get it painted (same color, just wipe off the decals) and redo the seat. The bike is not the fastest thing out there or the most comfortable but we all bought these things for one of two reasons 1- we either grew up riding something very close to this in my case a Yamaha 1972 XS 650. or #2 it is a financial decision for a daily commuter. Either way I really enjoy riding the bike.

Welcome to the club!

Not seen the V&H full system fitted on to the SCR before - did it go straight on?

Ben,
Thanks for looking, yes it did, zero mods.
My 650 back in the day was setup kinda the same way.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing the pics! I have the same fly screen on my SCR, as well as the adventure pegs. That new exhaust is pretty sharp looking.

Krixtoph,

Thx, happy to be on board.
Ill be working on torquing the head bearings next to get rid of the "death wobble". Been reading and following the threads in other sections but still have a few questions.

SoFISCR,

Yes, that's the easy one. I'll post links below but, cut the metal bracket behind the mounting holes with a band saw or hacksaw or some other device. (there are several sets of holes) cut where you feel comfortable. Mount a universal mounting bracket, add a LED license plate bracket, cut the harness and connect the 3 wires and that's it. If you have more questions feel free to pm me

Universal bracket:(not the exact one I used)

LED License Plate bracket

That's a nice looking set up. It's good to see how a proper strait pipe set up would look on the SCR. I really dig the plate bracket, seems like quite a few people on here have just cut that bracket in half and hooked up an LED plate.

@Krixtoph, @Sammy - you might be able to answer me this. Another thread on here has piqued my interest in a flyscreen - I know they’re not really much use, but they’ll clean up the front end nicely. The Koso clock has excess cable length that it’ll help disguise too.

The OEM Bolt screen is not sold in the U.K. (surprise surprise), and costs a fortune to personally import, but I can get hold of the National Cycle one pretty easily. The ads say they are ‘rake adjustable’ - do you know to what extent? Could it lie far enough back to rest on the clocks (not that I would)? It would be good to know it’s level of adjustability though - screens that sit too vertical on a bike offend my senses!! If not, I might go with a Dart (which is slightly cheaper).

Cheers both,
Ben

I know you directed this to Krixtoph and Sammy, but I bought a used National Cycle Flyscreen last year because he only wanted $20 and it was like new. I will post a couple photos of the brackets and their range of adjustment. I never mounted it, so it will be easier for me to take photos then it will be for the guys who have them installed.

Here's a bunch of photos. The adjustment range of the brackets is unlimited. So it will be physical interference that limits your range of adjustment. The method of holding the angular position appears to simply be star washers that are pinched between the brackets. That is assuming I was given the original fasteners.

Woah, you're asking for advice from a nihilist? That's a big step for you! LOL

Anyway, to answer your question, and if you asking about this bad boy, then there are two pivot points for adjusting. One point where the arm attaches to the fork, and another point where the screen attaches to the arm. This allows for A LOT of movement and adjusting so that you can go from one extreme to making the screen touch the back of the clock, to making the screen tilt into the wind if you REALLY wanted to (not that you would).

Like I mentioned in a different thread about this screen, I really like it and think it's well worth the investment. I get way less bugs on me, and the wind is off my chest so I'm much less of a parachute in the wind which reduced a lot of rider fatigue in my shoulders. Sure I still feel the wind on my helmet or on my face when I'm just wearing goggles, but if I wanted to be out of the wind I'd have stayed in my cage.

Hope this helps, friend!:wink2:

Cheers for taking time to take the pictures @Schu, and the detailed description - much appreciated. Seeing as you’re not using it, you should really post it over to me! :wink2:

A nihilist posting links to Amazon......love it! :laugh: Thanks for the positive feedback on the screen though - maybe it would make more of a difference than I expect.

Ben,
As Krixtoph stated there is plenty of adjustment to take it as far back or forward as you would want. would
I buy it again? Yes. It does help tremendously in taking the wind off your chest (again, as stated by Krixtoph)
cheers for the feedback bud - much appreciated. I’m currently trying to decide between this and the Dart flyscreen (a U.K. company, but plenty of guys over there seem to import them).

Won’t be until at least payday though - I’m a bit brassic this month!

Cheers,
Ben

Less chrome plated hardware on the Dart screen. I think it will look better on an SCR.

Do it. Do it.
