Screen looks good dekker. How easy 2 fit. I see u have sat nav mount. Did u wire it 2 ignition?
The screen is not that straight forward to fit but "how easy ?" depends on your ability level.
You have to remove the headlight separate the black and blue cowling and drill two holes in the black bit that is next to the headlight. The position for the holes is marked on the underside 9.6mm dia if I remember right. The plastic is thin and difficult to hold I used a small 5mm drill then opened it out with a Dremel, the hole dia is marked so it's quite easy to do.
I enjoyed a pleasant couple of hours in the sunshine solving the mystery of how to remove the cowling and where the various washers and screws went.
I have a Garmin Zumo sat-nav it is wired direct to the battery. I have split the power cable with a Phono plug near the headstock so that the cradle can be removed completely when not in use.

Update on the Suzuki screen. Did 170 miles yesterday can't say if it made much of a difference to protection maybe a little ?

Anyone try the Ermax yet? Wondering on the mounting and protection worth it for longer trips. If the mounting is similar to the suzuki then I can just swap for tours when I need the protection.

I have my eye on that one as well. Puig wrote me that it will be available in the US in early or mid-March.

I've had mine on for a couple of months, around 4000 km. I bought it for cosmetic reasons. Not sure that it deflects the wind any higher than not having one but it does seem to reduce previous turbulence from all the bits and pieces that it now covers.

I have now Ermax sport(pics in my garage). Im happy so far. As for looks naja its always a problem with naked bikes and screens loool. I like the look of the S2 concept screen but waiting to see some better pics or video to decide if i want to change for it. It is a little expensive too to just to buy it and then leave it at home in basement. :(;)

Your bike looks very nice parked next to that GT-R! :) I really like the red and black colour scheme as well as the grey. Definitely a head-turner! You've put together some pretty sweet accessories!

How effective is the sport screen? Motostarz in Canada offers a bigger option at 37cm but it definitely looks more awkward on the front end...
Also, how was install? Did it require any drilling like the suzuki screen?

And you've probably already seen this concept vid from S2 Concepts that shows their entire kit in all it's glory :) http://www.gsxs1000.org/forum/gsxs-1000-appearance-modifications/20769-nice-grey-gsxs-s2-concept.html

Possibly getting a little far off topic for this thread... ;)

Most of these places ship worldwide. I bought my tailbag from FC Moto in Germany. A vendor doesn't have to be local to make a purchase.

Thanks man! The screen is large enough to hide a little at higher speeds but not too large so that someone call you a postman>:D. I seen the bigger screen from Ermax but i wouldnt put it on my bike bcs of looks(def. postman look).:)
Install is really easy. No drilling like orig.Suzi screen. And u can mount it in 2 high position( higher-lower) http://www.ermax.fr/pdf/notices/0304XX108_FR.pdf
