Simply put... Had a Madstad V-Strom kit and 2 windshields I was going to retrofit to my GSX650F. Called Madstad and asked if it could be retrofitted to the Madstad base unit and the "Engineer" said no way. Bought a base unit and could believe how flimsy it was. Reinforced and made my own retrofit. It is just the prototype... Will be building a new plate design on the Bridgeport next week and paint it. Here are various pics.

EH, if I had to choose one I would go with the dark one. But both of them are way too big for the FZ09 IMO.

The big one for the cold times in Maine. The smaller one would be for standard duty. I too thought it looked too big at first and had every intention of trimming it down but the low but wide actually looks pretty good given the fact the mirrors are too tall. If it was just going to be a nekkid bike, I would have bypassed a screen all together, bought the cluster cover and jettisoned the mirrors to make room for some decent barend mirrors.
