    Hi all,

    I've had a 2016 V7II with a Dart Marlin Flyscreen that I liked. Due to circumstances, I had to sell that bike last year, but am getting a v7 iii Night Pack. Looking at the Dart flyscreens, it appears they are incompatible with the Night Pack. I'm assuming this is because of the thinner/lower headlight. Does anyone have a screen similiar to a Dart for a night pack? I know there is an OEM one, but I'm not a fan of the shape or price.

    If I can get my hands on a Night Pack locally, I can make the brackets to offer on the Store above, and I'm a Dart dealer of course already. Any takers in O.C., CA?

    Well, I'd offer up mine when I get it, but I'm in Ohio... Appreciate your willingness to make the brackets though.

    I’ll have a set of “Spare” brackets for the Moto Guzzi screen soon...

    Todd: I have a V7III S with an LED headlight. I would like a Dart screen to fit. Did you produce a modified bracket for sale? I could not find it in your store. Thanks

    We custom made some brackets for a local customer for a V7 III that fitted the JW/MD LED headlight we offer. I still would need to get a Night Pack into the shop to do it, but we're 2/3rds of the way there with what we have.

    Hi Todd and Githianki,

    FYI/Update: I went with a Givi screen, but the brackets took over a month on special order from Italy. I have to say, I like the Dart screen look and size better, and I imagine others do as well- so probably worth making on special order. For now, I don't need the bracket. Thanks!

    I'm still interested in the bracket. I actually bought a used Dart classic for the V7II for cheap with the hope of being able to fashion a bracket myself. I did not. The headlight is too narrow and diameter too large to mount them at the same place the Dart is mounted on a V7II.

    I think they would need to mount where the givi mounts, which is on the handlebar, as the pic below shows. Maybe using the Givi kit and attaching the Dart braces via welding?

    With the Racer 10th anniversary and the new 850 V7 stone having an LED headlight, I'm hoping that more options come out soon.

    This is the setup I have as well. Works surprisingly well. I ended up getting mine from some place in Italy, still took me like 3 weeks to get.

    I have a set of these brackets / mounts for the MG "Touring" screen.

    I bought a new one but used Black Brackets - so I have a set of *New* unused Silver/chrome brackets.

    Todd, count me in for a Dart screen bracket to fit the Stone S as well, if you are able to get one in so can fabricate them :)

    Hey count me in for buying a Stone S bracket as well! Let us know if you get it figured out. Would love to lend you my bike but I'm in Texas. ‍I'm interested in a middle sized tinted or smoked screen.

    as an FYI to y'all, I was browing Dart's website yesterday, as I do about every other month or so. Now, when you select V7III there is a note saying that it does not fit LED variants but 'we are working on this' I'm taking this as something is coming down the pike from them that will work for the LED headlights, good news for us. Since Todd is a dealer for them, I imagine he'll have the brackets available when Dart makes them.
