Hey all, anyone have any experience with buying and or installing a new windscreen to the 250, preferably a dark or smoke one? Been looking online, just wondering where a good place to buy one is, and also how easy it is to swap out with the stock one. Thanks for any assistance!

Theres a how to with pics somewhere on here. Youll have to take off some of the fairings I believe.

It certainly doesn't fall into the "simple swap" category. Fairings, nose piece, side mirrors, signal lights all have to come off/disconnected. For those that have removed the fairings before will have an easier time of it. :eek:

I have a light smoke puig. It is about a two hour install. I don't think it was hard at all. The only part you need to really pay attention to that is not really covered in the "how to" is make sure every thing is lined up when you put the screws back in. A lot of the faring can slide in to the wrong position if you are not paying attention and you wont notice it till you are two steps ahead.:mad:

@live is right. We had to take everything apart in order to install my smoke Puig windscreen. It was a tight squeeze to get the dash out bc of the stock screen. It took my buddy under an hour and he had never done it before. I am very lucky that he's so mechanically inclined. But he had a hell of a time with my fender eliminator. Good luck!

If you feel you are going t eventually move up to a crotch rocket, just plasti dip that sucker and call it a day. If you are a shortie than you better stick with clear so you can see out of the windshield. If you are 6ft+ like me just plasti dip it b/c you can't look out it anyways, even tucked. Also, PD will help reinforce your windscreen. Also, the inside of your windscreen's matte finish will match the dash.

$6 and 1 hr and a half is all you need.

Actually installed the smoked Puig a month ago. Like it much better than the stock. Provides greater wind resistance and looks smoking hot. Much better look IMO:D

If you just want it tinted, there are ways to do it cheap, even without the OVER-MENTIONED plastidip (give it a rest, PLEASE). The Puig screen looks sharp and actually makes the bike more enjoyable to ride (or so I'm told). The cost, as mods go, is pretty cheap, despite what some people say.

If I hear about plastidip one more time....:eek: But anyways, here's a pic of my windscreen. I got it from surfsidemoto.com I believe it was. And it was $80 but worth it in my opinion. I like the way it looks and it helps a lot on the highway.

puig screen

having moaned in the past about the effort in fitting a new screen,I have to say for me (at 5'-8") it was worth it.Looks great and much better wind resistance.
As with all jobs ,2nd time around would be easy !:D

If you just want to tint it a bit, you can get spray-on tint online, or at auto-parts stores if your state isn't anal about it. I've used VHT nite-shade tint to good effect. If you go the spray route, do yourself a favor and get a good spray handle/nozzle adapter for the can. They're worth their weight in gold when rattle-canning stuff.
