Paint it black! Take your time and use lots of thin coats and it'll look just as good as a bought windscreen. I debated on dual filaments as well, but decided my headlight was good enough to be seen.

I was going to paint it black after reading some other postings, but i realized that there is a clear sticker on the windscreen and if i try to remove it there will be gunk left, and if i try to paint over it...well, it will look ghetto...but thanks!

I just left my sticker on. Your talking about that faded black sticker with the yami logo on it right? I painted right over mine and it looks good, you can't even tell it's there until you see the yami logo. But it's your bike. Do what you think looks good, not what others tell you :cheers

if you're into racing i'd just get a new screen. if you paint it, you won't be able to see through it during a full tuck. my 2¢

You dont need to pull any stickers off. Just a quick cllean and lots of thin coats.



Cost $2 for a can of matte black.

Not sure about you rubbernecked giraffe looking MF's but there is no way i can get down far ewnough to see through the screen with a helmet on.

Them flushies look like my LP flushmounts. Medium size, and single filament. I like them cause they're bright and i can be seen. Being seen on a bike is #1 in my books.
