    My first "mod" may be a Pirahna screen. Any tips? Regrets?

    Check out the Dart Marlin. I have it on my Anniversario and it's great.

    I ran a Marlin for the 1st 10,000 miles. Though I appreciated its functionality, I was ready for a different look, so settled on the Pirahna. I vastly prefer the look to the Marlin, and much to my suprise, functionally, it's not much different - even at freeway speeds. I'm 6'2" for reference. If anyone wants the Marlin by the way, let me know...

    +1 for the Piranha, worked well for me. I did a couple of modifications, namely increased rake on the screen and added some edge guard to improve airflow. I reviewed them on my channel if you are interested to learn more:

    Are there any good quality larger screens to suit an older touring application for my 2015 V711?

    Not from Dart since this is the thread you’re posting on here. Guzzi makes a Tour screen, and there’s a handful of aftermarket options. How big of screen are you looking for and budget?

    This is the Dart Marlin on a V7II, super easy install, the whole thing attaches to the 2 headlight screws.

    Steven Martin, your bike looks a lot like mine except yours is cleaner and I have knobby tires! I found this thread AFTER I just ordered a Dart Marlin dark tint windscreen. It should be here in three days, hopefully. That is when the tracking info states it will arrive; we shall see. I'm glad to see what it looks like on your bike. I'm excited!

    EDIT: Well I got the Dart Marlin installed. Looks good! Definitely gives an improvement across the speed range, though of course the improvement is most noticeable at highway speed. The wind is off of my chest and I don't feel like I'm about to be blown off the bike.

    I liked the wind on my chest but my helmet was darting around anytime I reached our 100KPH speed limit :) the screen is just big enough to almost eliminate this problem. I gravel road mine a bit also now that I've learned to turn the TC off!

    Is there any GTM update on windscreen mounts for the V7 III night pack? I'm thinking about just sucking it up and getting the OEM MG one even though it's 400 bucks.. Getting a little tired of my body and head getting blown around at 65+mph on my V7 Stone S. I know there was some talk of a bracket for the night pack since the headlight and dial setup was lower but never heard anything else and i can't find that thread...

    Thanks!

    Not yet. Still waiting to hear from Dart, but I think they likely won’t get to it soon… I’ll have a go next I have one in the shop.
