    Screen recommendations wanted

    Anyone got decent pictures and recommendations for a replacement screen.
    As many of you may know My TTSE 2013 from new has been a bit of a rogue...... this is screen number 5!!! cracked!!!
    just through normal use .... no abuse, 39800 miles, they all crack from one of (not always the same) mount holes.
    Triumph unable to sort, always new fitting foam washers and even new bolts..... torqued correctly.
    They always ''helped'' with replacement but sadly the larger screen and even standard are like rocking horse sh*t now so looking at all options.

    Anyone have aftermarket experience to recommend or even a spare in a box under bench or on shelf. :002: :002:
    Prefer 'clear' but open to pics suggestions.

    Thanks all,     Mike.

     My 2016 Trophy has been fitted with a large [the largest] V-Stream screen since not long after bringing the bike home. I've had it off a number of times and have had no issues in 91,000 kilometres. Would highly recommend this screen.  :028: :821:

    I too purchased a V Stream.  I had to purchase a large because there weren't any mediums available anymore.  I plan to get it cut down to the proper size.  My only complaint so far with the V Stream is that I am unable to use the electric screen adjust when I'm at speed.  I can lower the screen but I am unable to raise it at speed.  Sitting still it works flawlessly.  I am wondering if there is somehow too much pressure on the windscreen at speed and the motor is unable to overcome this to raise the screen.  Stock windscreen works fine with the electric adjustment but like many here, I can feel the back pressure when I raise the screen.  I'm curious if cutting the triangular hole in the V Stream, like that of the CalSci, would rectify the electric adjustment problem?

    Given that my v-stream goes up and down without problems on the road, I think your problem probably lies elsewhere..... but mine is the sport/touring version.  Digital has a large one (ooh err, missus) so it would be interesting to know if he has issues...

    No, I haven't had any problems so far...

      Merritt64, maybe as Ken says your problem lies elsewhere. On a regular basis, mainly after a long ride I put the tube on my WD40 spray can into the split rubber that the screen arm runs up and down between, and give a liberal squirt of the liquid from top to bottom. I have never had an issue with the screen not moving up or down whilst mobile. Just another little bit of preventative maintenance. Cheers.  :028: :028:

    My recommendation is the following:
    Remove your screen, then separate the rubber bands that protect the mechanism from dust with your fingers and finally, slide the screen up and down with the button. Both must reach the end of their journey.

    Doing that, you will be able to observe if the tour does it well or if it encounters any obstacles.

    I would also recommend doing an automatic auto-adjust with the DialerTool or similar.
