    Dart is now offering their two screens for the Audace only. A nice (cheaper) alternative to getting that wind off of your chest. Click on each below to purchase.

    I assume the only difference between Classic and Marlin flyscreens is the shape, correct? I wonder if you have more pictures, would like to see dark Marlin shots where entire bike is visible.
    In addition, what is your opinion about bar-end mirrors shown on pictures you posted? Are they worth $1,061.00 CAD? OEM mirrors currently installed on my bike are not very functional, the view is somewhat restricted by the reflection of my shoulders. Any comments greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Only shots I have. Classic is smaller, Marlin is a bit larger. Both offer about what you might expect for something this size.
    Mirrors: They are decent, but not worth that cost. Plenty of others available including the Rizoma offerings I have on this site; https://www.guzzitech.com/store/product/rizoma-spy-r-bar-end-mirror/

    Thank you Todd!
    I placed the order for the dark Marlin and Rizoma mirrors.
    Thank you!

    Did anyone try the Marlin screen on a California 1400 custom? Only difference to the Audace should be the headlight?

    Doesn’t work. The headlight mount is the issue. It only works on the Audace. I’ve sold only one that I had. The others have yet to ship.

    OK, thank you for the reply, it is really a shame, the flyscreen looks really good.

    The MG flyscreen for the Cali 1400 Custom is made by Dart, I believe. I have them on both my Cali 1400s, they look the same as the Classic version. A lot more expensive tho'.

    You might be right, I checked the distances between the bolds of both screens. The only difference between the Dart and the MG screen is the vertical distance between the bolds (Dart 80 mm, MG screen 60 mm) which makes sense since the Marlin screen has to take more wind pressure. I ordered the Dart Marlin screen and will try to modify the MG brackets so I can use both. Don't know yet how I will do it but I guess I will find a way :)

    Why not just add a couple of holes to the Marlin screen so it fits the existing brackets?

    I actually have a larger screen that might be the similar to the Marlin that was custom made to fit the Cali 1400 Guzzi screen brackets. I purchased from someone of this site (or another that can't be mentioned). It came with the Cali 1400 screen and brackets, but it never appealed to me. It's also clear which I didn't want.

    Todd, I've just noticed the bike your using to model the screens doesn't have front indicators. Or are they cunningly hidden somewhere?

    And of course if you want to go the other way round like my hybrid Custom/ Audace
    The Custom MG screen can be fitted to the Audace headlight.
    Never did like the Customs headlight. Or fork shrouds, or floorboards.

    Worked... Flyscreen is pretty good, I have been surprised. For the size it works pretty well.

    Dart also offers now the Piranha screen for the Audace. Here's how it looks:
