I picked up some carbon bodywork for my X1 but the fly screen is for twin headlights, not a problem I though as I'll trim it back to accommodate the standard headlight. But once it arrived it clearly isn't for an X1, any ideas what bike it fits? If anyone is looking for one for whatever it fits drop me a pm

Looks X1 trimmed down. The S1 flyscreen is a mirror image of the X1 (and a slightly different shape).

I may as well just trim it for the round headlight and see how it looks on the bike. Nothing to lose, it may be ok until I get a better one.

Cheers Pash,

Cheers tone, if that was for an X1 not an S1 I'd have bought it but one will torn up I'm sure

The S1 flyscreen will actually work. All you have to do is turn your dash panel upside down.

When I used to race my X1, the race flyscreen from Henry Duga @ Buell was an S1 item and that's what I did.

Emailed them today as it's over 2 weeks and it still shows as not dispatched. Apparently they haven't any made so it's going to be 6 to 10 weeks! Not happy!

I hate that! Take your money, then tell you it's out of stock :(
A certain Dutch crowd did that to me too many times. I stopped buying stuff of them.
I really get sand in my Vagina when they do that :evil:
