    Just picked up a 2017 V7 III.

    Been trying to research windscreens, but not finding anything except fly screens and I'd like to have something larger.

    Anyone ?

    Twisted Throttle.com lists one from Givi, that is a bit larger than the Dart Marlin, but it was backordered a few months ago when I was looking. I really like my Dart Marlin.

    There does seem to be a dearth of good fairings for the V7 series bikes as yet. I did some looking for a frame mounted half fairing similar to what my LMV had; haven't found anything I like yet.

    In the meantime, the Dart Piranha I fitted in place of the original number plate/fly screen is nicer looking and more effective despite its small size. I imagine the Marlin actually provides quite a lot of protection.

    National Cycle makes some nice small windscreens, but it looks like they mount to the handlebars

    What about the LM1 fairing? "One day" I intend to put one on my V7iii. There are after-market copies fairly readily available if the oem price is too scary. Doesn't look too daunting.

    The LM1 fairing isn't any great advance on the Dart Piranha I've already fitted, either for wind coverage or style-wise IMO. I was looking for a fairing that provided the improvements in stability and coverage on high speed cruise that the LeMans V type frame-mounted, rigid fairing affords. One possibility would be to adapt a LeMans V fairing ... although I was never all that delighted with the smallish rectangular headlight.

    This is a low priority, future future idea ... I have other things on the plate for nearer term monkeying about. :D

    What about this? It's for the V7, but I suspect it could be made to work.
    Linky to purchase here.

    That one looks pretty nice, thanks for the link.

    Biggest adaptation that comes to mind is that the V7II headlight bucket has the main fixing bolts in a different position compared to the V7III. the rest would take closer inspection of the bits... :)

    In the mean time, I have a National Cycle "Deflector" windshield in my stash. It's a handlebar mount.
    Let's see if it'll fit.

    :)

    It does exactly what I wanted in keeping the wind off my chest.

    OK, so a couple pics of the National Cycle "Deflector" shield mounted.
    This shield functions better than I thought it would.
    A bit more noise ad 50 mph and a bit less at 70 mph.
    No buffeting (5'9" tall)
