I just recently purchased a 17’ scr950. I am looking to ride well into the winter time and would like to get opinions on the best windshield for this bike. I have a 10 mile ride to work consisting of mainly backroads.

You'll find no shortage of opinions on this forum. Do a search and you should find that windshields have been beat to death in various threads. I have the National Cycle Deflector. It's a medium sized screen that is just large enough to be functional. I live in Michigan and ride as low as 42 degrees and can say this windshield does nothing for your hands / arms. But it blocks the wind off your upper torso nicely.

The National Cycle linked above is what I currently use and it's done plenty well for my daily 30 mile ride to work and back and is inexpensive and easy to install.

From reading other's experiences here with different screens, it seems like even the smallest does the job of getting the wind off of your chest, though. I personally prefer the National Cycle one since I do 40min frequent rides in the rain at 60mph+ and can lower myself behind it to just enough to protect my nose from getting pinged by rain drops.

Wouldnt it be Cool if just for a Hot Minute if this sheild would work.
I ordered it in Hope's that it might just fit somewhat.
Not looking good though. There is no place that you can use the Bracket that they gave you and the few bolts and get it mounted.
It will take some crafty ingenuity to come up with a way to get this Fairing to Mount up. It fits great!
You can see in some of the pics that there's hardly any place to mount to.
Just no where to mount to.
Guess a body could Jerry rigg it and put a screw in the holes on the side of the sheild at the headlight hole, the use those screws as an anchor point to use safety wire and safety wire it to various points like Fork tube, cable routers,ect ect...

Well!.....It was cool! With some quick cat like thinking... I made up some brackets with some wrist brace metal supports.
Drilled them and cut/Bent to shape,mounted them onto the lower Headlight screws.
I will definitely make a better set and with some better more ridged braces but for now these will work just fine..
When there's a will......there's a way.

This windsheild however...... may keep me from being able to use the LED wrap around lights on the fork tubes due to the bottom of the fairing hiding the led's.

Be cautious when using single mounting holes on brackets and supporting straps. They easily become pivot points if your screws loosen up. Would hate to have your fairing suddenly cop a lean to one side and limit your ability to steer the bike.

I dont have to worry about the screws backing out with lock nuts. Plus I drilled 2 very small holes in the top of the fairing that sits just behind the the tach so that I could put a spring in each of the holes and pull the springs down toward those cable guides on each side of the tach.
This way the springs pull the windsheild towards me and makes it even more stable and solid.

No worries.....The lock Nuts I used will keep it on. Plus....I drilled two small holes at the top of fairing on the inside of wind sheild just behind tach.
Took two springs (Like the ones you would put on a exhaust header just as it enters the head)
One spring goes in the small hole on the left and hooks to the metal cable guide at the tach and the other spring in the hole on opposite side.
This way.... the springs keep the sheild pulled in towards me.
Its solid and not going anywhere.

Takes just about 20 mins to get the wind sheild back off. Unhook the springs and then take the bolts out at bottom of head light.

Took the rear tag mount off today and put the side TC.Bro's shock mount and plate Bracket on. I re-used the stock Tag Light just for now. The Tag light doesnt look to bad bit is a bit to Big of a Hood hanging over the plate.
I routed the wiring down the back of plate along the bolts with zip ties to hold it close to the bolts.
From there the wiring runs behind the bottom bolt on the Belt guard,up by the shock with a zip tie and the upper frame at that unused hole at top of shock and zip tied and then under seat to the stock connector.

I dont think it looks to awful bad. You cant see the wiring in the day time unless you really look for it. It's pretty hidden.

However I would like to find a smaller tag light that would make the Tag Bracket look more sleeker.
Also put the Battery Tender phone charger on and my Quad Lock to hold the phone in place.

I love the look of my OEM numberplate screen, but it's not effective at all. It directs all of the wind directly at my face, which makes riding uncomfortable even with a full face. It's fine for around town, but it's not acceptable for touring. That Dart windscreen looks nice and appears to have a lot better coverage. I might have to try that...

I still really like my Dart Piranha fly screen, I got the gunmetal and sprayed it black. I am also willing to admit that it doesn't really do anything unless I'm fully tucked, and even then it's just for show at any sort of real speed. That being said, I am very impressed with the quality, fit, and finnish. Never having owned a Dart product before I was sceptical, but now I would give the brand a solid recommendation. The marlin is probably a much more functional choice than the piranha...still, the piranha is pretty cool looking so...you know...do what you gotta do.
