TTR 600 Windscreen

Anybody got any advice or experience regarding fitting a small screen to the 2004 era TTR600. I have seem some fitted but not sure how well they work or which bike model / year they have come from. Any help, direction, or pictures would be great. Cheers. Russell

I have had a spitfire screen ( constantly comes loose, then falls apart), then a Secdem screen for an XT600E (desert model screen or something). Got mine from the importers, bagster or baglux in Wales I think.

Hi Leigh
thanks for all your advice at Ripley. I compared my photo of your secdem screen with the baglux site
Baglux UK
and I think it's the BY042PBIN -

Yes that is it, in the picture it's an XT600E despite the text. Looks like it's available in lots of colours.

Thanks Leigh,
I mentioned the poor starting after the bike had been standing for a while, well I have tried the switching off the petrol tap and before starting flooding the carb with half fresh petrol, Fires up first time! Hope this is the problem sorted.
Any news on getting rid of the rear rack yet?

Thanks for the link to the screen description.
