Friday the 13th...
« on: March 14, 2020, 03:53:59 PM »
...did not bring a black cat, but a new bike  :082: 2020 Black CB500x. I had Hepco+Becker crashbars+foglights and BB handguards added. I think she looks very smart  :152:
I put the first couple of hours on the bike today, and loving it. I did notice quiet some wind buffeting even at 40 km/h, and tried moving the windshield to the top position, but then the hand guards hit the screen and the front wheel can't fully steer left/right anymore. Would cutting out a small space in the bottom corners of the windshield be an option? Other ideas?





Stay Safe!

Sven
Cheers,
Sven

The BB guards on my 19 just missed the screen but were to close for my liking so I bought some 10mm plastic spacers from eBay & longer screws (M5 x 25mm) for the 4 mounting points.

Hi Lancs-Lad, great tip - Thanks! Will give that a try as soon as I can go back to a shop, due to Corona, only stores selling food can open during the weekend in Belgium...
Cheers,
Sven

Sven72 I've just noticed the area where you live, I've been to Huy quite a few times over the years by car for the Rallye du Condroz

Looking good Sven72. As Lancs-Lad suggested spacers with longer bolts.
Also try rotating the bars slightly and maybe the hand guards. Might give you enough clearance.

Another option could be https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Universal-7-8-22mm-HandleBar-Handle-Fat-Bar-Mount-Clamps-Riser-Motorcycle/202479849833
