Screen for XT 600 E

Hi all
Here is my new windscreen :





it's a screen for a BMW 650 Dakar (Single cilinder model 2000-03)





Just drilled the headlight cowl and hold it with 3 5mm bolt's and some rubber washers and bolts




Still need to relocate the blinkers as they foul the screen in the original positon


what you think ???

Looks good... Lucky fit.

I wonder if one will fit my Dominator and XR650L

update

It works !!!
Here is the final look with turn signals mounted



These are the brackets that I made to hold the screen and to reposition the turn signals, the curved bit is for clearing the front brake pipe :











Still need to paint them black and paint the screw heads black also

As for performance, this weekend we had 15ºC and a sunny day and so I went for a spin , and while it's no Goldwing,it does work, you feel much less wind pressure on the chest area, and the stream flow of air is just a bit to high for me (i'm about 180 cm tall) so I think I will lower it and/or tilt it back a bit

As for now i'm happy with it, and looking at the bike without the screen now, seams strange .
