You can see how scratched and cloudy my original screen is and how clean the new one is too!

I bought my driving lights from ADV Monster - Model 60 LED (uh... ahem...) off road flood light.
3600 Lumens ea. They pull 2.4 amps each. I bought the heavy duty bracket at $10 extra - I guess it was worth it.... not a lotta difference in the 2......

ADVMonster is here:http://stores.homestead.com/hstrial-QualiRegResou/StoreFront.bok

Board post with lots a pics and jive is here: http://pc800.freeforums.org/dim-headlights-t194.html

I probably should have gotten the larger one like you did. I really want to do the permanent install and once I drill the holes I'm commited! Hmmmmmm.......

Check this out.....
I am normally not a big fan of "whatever it is you call it when you cut the windshields down"
but this actually looks "Right" to me:

Yes a very good look indeed. Proper in my opinion. Butt.... Have you ridden with it. I've read if you are over 5'5" and drive over 40 mph it gets annoying.

I like the wind in the summer. But I do not like the noise. My helmet is supposed to be onna the quietest on the market but I still have to wear ear plugs. The Xcreen does help though and you have the option of lowering it in extreme heat and low speeds then raising it in winter and at high speeds.

How about that x-screen StrayDog , are you happy with it and did you mount it with bolts? I am having the hardest time trying to pick something that will help with the noise and buffeting have talked to Clearview and am not convinced , have even mocked up a couple of extenders that did not do much.
Pretty sure I have bought houses with less research :)
Any input would be welcome
Mike

I used it for awhile clamped and finally drilled it and mounted it. I'm not a big fan of clamp mounts. Often you have to do that but I prefer mounting things permanently. I've drilled holes in many a fine new vehicle!

I bought the smaller one but wonder if I should have gotten the bigger one. It works pretty well though. To
cut the noise I have to raise it very high. It takes the edge off - to my ears it takes out a lot of the cutting
shrill, sharp annoying wind noise. Makes it tolerable. And I can still see over it which is a biggie for me.

I've been leaving the adjusters "unlocked" so I can reach up and change its adjustment while riding. Its tricky but eventually you get the hang of it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, I am leaning towards the touring model, assuming yours is the sport model. I guess I'll use the clamps for awhile to find the best placement and if happy do a permanent mount. Looking forward to some quieter riding , hoping it does the trick.
I am about 35-40 min. south of Franklin N.C. ( U.S.441/23 ) going to get up your way this fall.
