Windscreen Mod - add vent?
« on: March 07, 2014, 01:15:08 am »
Has any one had any experience with actually doing mods to the Triumph windscreen? On my ST1300 I had a Clearview shield with a Honda Gold-Wing type vent. I really liked that vent in hot weather. How easily would the Triumph screen cut to install a spare vent that I have?

Thanks,
Norm

I'm not completely sure but being a former Goldwing owner I would think that the curve in the Trophy windscreen is such that the Goldwing vent just wouldnt fit  :110:

I'm not sure what the the TT screen is made of, therefore I would recommend chain drilling it rather than using a jigsaw or hacksaw. You'll probably find the noise goes way up but you can always screw a little blank over it if it doesn't work.

You might want to consider fitting some spacers under the screen mounitngs, that usually gives you a better air flow without the turbulence, this is a common fix on Tigers and similar bikes.
