Screen options
« on: February 19, 2021, 03:05:17 PM »
Hi there

I am considering a 2016 Tiger XRX. I was just wondering if the bigger screens from the later Tigers would fit the earlier bikes?

Thanks

Hi and :401:

Do you mean the taller 'touring screen'? If so, for me, it was no better than the useless standard height screen. My perfect solution was a second hand Mastad bought from a fellow forum member.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Sorry I should have made that clearer.

The standard screens on the later bikes look bigger, or is that just the extra lower right and left clear deflectors that seem to make the screen area bigger? Anyway the reviews suggest there is better wind protection on the later bikes, and I just wondered if the later screen(s) are a straight swap?

Thanks

I'm not sure about the compatibility of the later screens, I would think unlikely as the later models had a different TFT dash.

I think an awful lot of contributors here have spent vast fonts of money trying to find the perfect screen.

For many, me included, the best answer is the Madstad screen, some think it is fugly but it sure does work!

They do come up from time to time secondhand on this forum and ebay and that would be my recommendation.

You want better wind protection? Get a car....

No seriously if you search the forum you'll find thousands of posts regarding the screen. A very personal thing.. I am happy with the Triumph touring screen and a Puig deflector but that's just me

The screen mountings for the Gen 3 bikes are very different to the Gen 1 & 2. I found the touring screen on my Gen 2 to be an improvement over stock, but I put a Givi Airflow on it and that was considerably better than both.
