Hey,
I ended up ordering this exact plexiglass windshield for my 1100 evo and haven't received it yet. Did you ever buy it? If so, does it look ok? If you have some pictures i would love to see it. Thanks!

Rob

You realize that this thread is over 3 years old right ? :)

I just painted my stock windscreen black, and think it looks great.

Hi. yes, i realized it was an old thread.... but it puts it up at the top of the "active topics" list if you reply to it. I was hoping someone else bought that windscreen and could tell me how they like it. I bought it directly from Ducati, however it doesn't tell you much about it. (like if it's bigger or whatnot) etc etc...

So it looks good painted, huh?

14T is one info the best mods you can do and it's cheap! Makes riding around town in 1-2 gear MUCH better

I highly recommend it if you are doing a lot of city style, stop and go driving. It smoothes out the low rpm range so much. It honestly is like driving a completely different motorcycle. However, I didn't mind the way the bike was before, but it would be easy enough to switch back if I wanted. I haven't noticed any loss of speed but I'm never hitting triple-digits on my speedometer. Meanwhile acceleration actually feels more responsive.

This thread needs more pictures of blacked out windshields.

Ask, and you shall receive ! Not the greatest, but it's all I have for now.
I used 3 coats of krylon automotive matte black, with 3 coats of clear on top.

Here is a pic of the dark smoke tinted windscreen (thanks Monster Parts). I know, still need to shorten front turn signals and Plasti Dip the headlight - waiting for the weather to get a bit warmer.

Not the best pic, and it doesnt do it justice, but flat black paint inside and out on the windshield.

I usually paint the insides of my widshields with gloss black and they turn out looking great!

For this bike after spraying the inside with matte black paint it was still "glossy" on the outside due to the clear plastic giving it a glean.

The inside looked so good flat black I did the outside, mounted it and love it! Matched the rest of the bike perfect!

That looks pretty sweet, seems like it might even make the gauges a little easier to read during certain parts of the day. How do you like you Rizoma handle bars?

Thanks, yeah it can help depending on the angle of the sun light.

I like the Rizoma setup a lot, with the 42mm risers it lowered the bar some but not too aggressive like with clipons. The bar is almost the same as OEM with slight bend further back...looks much nicer IMO.
