I'm in the market for a new larger screen and quite fancy the 08 GSA tinted version.

Has anyone actually done this conversion yet and can anyone tell me the following.

1. Will it fit
2. What parts will i need to order
3. is it a big job to change to this screen
4. whats the cost of the screen and fitting parts


Cheers:beerjug:

It will fit, the screens have not changed on the 08 bikes just the screen mounts but the positioning is the same.

In answer to your questions.

  1. Yes
  2. You need the screen bracket, the bolts and spacers for the GSA a competent dealer will be able to order them for you.
  3. No, about 15 minutes does it.
  4. Not sure exactly but about £300
 
With a bit of haggling I got mine for £214 from SLM....also tinted for the '08 bike. Tinted is slightly cheaper than the clear. The part numbers for the 07 & 08's are the same. :)
 
Tinted screens

A strange idea really because you don't actually look through the screen! I remember that the R100RS screen could be black -and it looked good. Has anybody sprayed their screen black or opaque? I know that if you spray on the back you will have a fantastic finish from the front.
 
Personally, as I'd like to upgrade to GSA screen anyway, thought I'd investigate the tinted version - my GS is black and the tinted screen should work quite well - Thunders picture's in his '08 Bling thread look impressive.:thumb2

Even more reason not to have clear then I suppose:nenau
