Title: Hello from Suffolk, UK
Post by: Desseardo on June 08, 2019, 11:48:10 PM
Hi, just a week away from picking up my new CB500X. Trading in my 2017 Honda Rebel 500. The dealer has a 2018 model unregistered available for 4995 on the road.
Has anyone in the uk brought a aftermarket windscreen, as I found the original version too short on the test ride?

Regards, Jamie

:400: Jamie. Screens are a turbulent topic! I'd recommend doing a search and add on to any threads that seem helpful.  It might help to add your height to your question.

You might just try raising the stock screen with it's adjust brackets.  That raises the screen about 1 1/2 inches.  I am happy enough with my screen in the upper position.
