Rockster Budget screen ideas?

Postby tigcraft » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:39 pm

Other than paying through the nose as these bikes are far and few between what has anyone fitted to a rockster and or adapted?

One of the things I like about this forum is that if no one has the answer, they don’t go aff on a tangent about totally unrelated drivel, well, most times, as does happen on other forums, names held!
I think the answer to your question is either no knows the answer, or the person who knows, hasn’t seen your thread.

Naughty Naughty - don't have a go because your thread is quiet.
The Rockster isn't a prolific model, many won't have owned one.

I have, and here is my solution.
Standard R1150 screen fits, if you use the mounts upside down.

I fitted this Givi screen with the two handlebar-mounted support rods. Kushtie.

A601 - Universal screen with 2 point handlebar, bronzè 36,9 x 42,5 cm (H x W)

https://www.givi.co.uk/screens-spoilers ... reens/A601

The roadster handlebar fitted to my Rockster improves the wrist-angle to relieve the ache caused by the too-straight Rockster bar, but the support-rod brackets are a tight squeeze when they sit alongside the hand-protector fittings.

But the Givi screen's nylon screen-edge-protector snugs nicely around the top of the little top fairing that sits on top of the headlamp assy. I set mine slightly inboard of the fairing edge so the wind shoots over the top of my helmet. I'm 5'9".

This is the list of people I'd trust with my bike.

Perfect PK. I knew there are things people have done that works. Your idea is worth a thought and I’ll cost it up. Thank you

As well as P-K I also welcome what you’ve done. As I’m gifted at 5’6” I could contour the lower part of the screen to the ‘triangle’ of the clock pod and it still should leave enough protection. Mines on higher roadster bars too.
