Thanks Nelson & Woz.

Does not have much adjustability but It was just enough for what I wanted at 5'8 the rearsets are perfect fit for me. It comes with two length rods so that you can switch from standard shift or reverse shift and comes with all the parts needed for your stock brake light. Install was super easy and instructions were easy to follow. Shifts for some reason are alot smoother and shorter with no hunting for neutral if you have to. Definetly recomended.

I installed a flyscreen to my Striple . Something i said I would never do to a naked bike .
It looks pretty cool on the bike but in my opinion doesn't really offer much wind protection . I don't regret getting it though .

Flyscreen is for keeping water out of the speedo housing. That gasket if you call it that doesn't exactly keep water out.

Um, I don't think that's it. In my opinion it deflects enough wind at highway speeds to make longer distance riding much more comfortable. I haven't heard of anyone having issues with water getting in the speedo with or without a flyscreen. Maybe on older models? Never something I worried about.

I truly feel it's primary purpose is to make the bike look bad ass.

Agreed. I feel like the bike looks better with it on, but I don't really feel much of a wind difference.

it helps slightly with wind, but I bought mine because it dresses the front of the bike up alot nicer.

I guess maybe it's just a placebo effect on me then. :shrug:
