OK Rex,
You got me. How do you like it? I've been wanting to replace mine. Looks really nice.

Yeah, it looks cool!

Okay, review. The original shield that comes with the GTV/GT60 is slightly thicker than this one. The rubber washer thingy that holds the shield isn't really made for this new screen (see illustration). Because of the height of this new screen and also because there's only two points that hold up this new screen in place, there's a little bit of rocking back and forth when riding at freeway speeds (which is usually noticeable beginning 50mph and above). You get used to it after a while. That's not a big issue for me. With this screen on, I don't have to fight against the wind. Do I like it? Yes. Do I recommend it? Yes!

Rex,
Thanks. BTW I've ordered one, you should get a commission check any time now. As far as the washer goes, is it a one piece thing, or two? I haven't had my windscreen off yet, but will soon. I was just wondering if I should try to find some gasket material to shim the gap with or not.
Thanks again,
Jim

It's a one piece and it shaped like um...a reel from a film projector.

Disclaimer. In real life, there isn't a gap unlike my illustration. My illustration is exagerated to show that new screen is slightly thinner than the original, which consequently has a lot of room in the rubber thingy to move around. and I'm not really a doctor, but I play one on TV.

Rex,
Thanks again, guess it's back to the drawing board. I'l let you know what I come up with. I figure I've got a few days before the new screen arrives.

doesnt that wobble like crazy at high speed?

i'd suggest something to brace against the screen to stop it snapping over time, especially if your a highway kinda guy


looks awesome compared to the cuppini one with a big black bit on it.


good job!

It wobbles, but not crazy enough to regret my purchase. It took me a few days to get used to it. I like the extra brace from the Cuppini brand (but I don't particularly like the shape and style of the Cuppini shield itself. To each his own. Thanks.

your screen looks 20 times better than the cuppini one, i dont know why they put the black piece on it

it'd be a decent screen if it didnt have the awful black triangle in the middle

Rex, does the windscreen follow the same angle upward as the original? I am trying to figure out if I can tuck my head down at high speed and not hit it. Or does this screen eliminate any need to do so anyway?

Hmm..tucking behind it won't work unless you're shorter than 5' 4" or something. The GTV's infamous seat which makes you sit foward closer to the handlebar is the culprit.

that's cool! hey you could find a smallish thing to wedge into the gap, maybe like slide a small part of a zip-tye in that gap, or something... not sure of the gap size so i can't make any real suggestions but you get the idea

curious on the wind - u commented that u don't have to fight against the wind - is it more quiet with your helmet on now that u don't have to fight the wind? i'm 5 6 so am hoping this would help push the wind up and over my head...
btw, it looks great on ur gtv!

Yes, very nice. Has a nice simple look to it.

Wondering if this would work for me - I'm 6'0". Maybe I could slouch my head a little?

Thanks again everyone! I took a closer look and feel for the wind this morning (awesome ride to work this morning, by the way). The wind doesn't hit my chest anymore (when compared to the original windshield). I used to hold onto the handle bars tighter when I didn't have it on. I don't exactly have to hold on tighter. The wind still hits my full face helmet. Having this particular windshield doesn't fully silence the wind noise. If I can name two things that this windshield is most functional at, those are 1) style, and 2) deflects the wind from hitting your chest so you don't have to fight against the wind especially at freeway speeds.

Looks nice.
I'm thinking about it.
Just afraid of wanting to crouch on a long ride and being prohibited.

I could tell you, you won't be able to crouch with this windshield on. On main reason is the GTV's seat which makes to sit closer to the handlebars. If you crouch forward, you'll hit the screen with your helmet. I have the Faco Midsize on my GT and I have crouched on that and it isn't comfortable. Crouching on long rides isn't exactly comfortable. I have gone on long rides numerous times (East County, Potrero, Long Beach, San Bernadino, Palm Springs, Salton Sea...all starting from San Diego) and believe me, having the MoSports Scoots screen on is better than not having it.

I'm still learning about posting photos, so sorry for the size and graininess.

I put a thin galvanized fender washer between the rubber and the outer chrome disc to stop the bobbing of the flyscreen at speed. I just happened to have a couple the right size. Seems to work well.

That windshield looks perfect on your GT60 Woodenhead. That is what the GT60/GTV should have come with in the first place.

I got the screen the other day, and finally installed it tonight. After a quick measurement earlier today, I determined the difference in thickness was somewhere between 1 and 2 mm. I'm extremely anal, and just had to find a gasket to fill the gap. After unsuccessful visits to a hardware store and a couple automotive parts stores, It occurred to me that a bicycle inner tube would be about the right thickness. Sure enough, it's just about right. It took a few minutes to cut out, but the results were great. Lighting in the barn was bad, but I'll post photos sometime this weekend. I haven't driven it yet, but it looks outstanding.

Awesome. I've had the screen on for a few weeks now. I'm used to the wobble. It's not violent or anything. When I find time, maybe I'll do the washer or inner tube DIY. Right now, I'm ok without it. Take pics!!!

Has anyone posted picks? I am also quite anal about things, and I really want to see if it is worth the purchase.

There are five photos on the first post at the top of this thread. Woodenhead also posted his scoot with the screen. Do you see it?

the screen really helps and makes a huge diff/you can see a pic of mine in the scooterboy and corazzo speedway thread if you need to see another example... let us know if you do it and what you think.

I'm about 5'10 and I'm wondering about the airflow over this windshield. A friend that installed a similar one on his Vino advised me to make sure to get one that doesn't deflect the air straight into your neck and chin. Can anyone that is running this on their GTV (and may be similar to me in height) comment on it?

Perhaps the foam "washers" that come on CD-ROM and DVD-ROM spindles would fill the gap? The ones that come on the 50-pack or 100-pack spindles of blank discs. I've seem them from 1mm thick to up to about 3 or 4 millimeters. Only problem is that they are usually white in color.

Speaking to the little shake to the mid-windscreen without filling the gap - it doesn't bug me or shake hard enough that it's an issue so I never filled in the gap as I don't think it's needed. Some may feel otherwise.

Can't speak to the wind on the chin/neck concern as I'm only 5' 6" but it helped move the wind from beating my chest to rolling of the top of my head - made a world of difference for me!

I've had mine about a month, and I love it. It really does cut down on the wind hitting straight into my chest, which in turn cuts the fatigue a lot. Unfortunately, it doesn't go so well with my choice of helmet. The way the visor is set up, the wind goes directly through it, and whistles horribly above 50mph. But the benefits are currently outweighing that problem.

And yeah, I also think the mid-sized screen looks ten times better than the stock one. Looks like it should have come on the scoot from the beginning.

I installed this little beastie this weekend and went out for an after dinner spin on some 45-55MPH roads. It does make a difference with fatigue and the feeling of being blown off the back of the scooter at higher speeds. The airflow for me (6ft on a GTV) seems to hit the top of my helmet and otherwise miss me altogether.

On thing I don't like about it is that when idling at a stop light it shakes A LOT and gives the impression of cheapness. Not sure what can be done about that. On the whole, I think I am happy with the addition.

Cheers,

Ciao a tutti ragazzi, sono un nuovo membro, mi chiamo Antonio e Cefalu '(PA-Sicilia-Italia).

Recentemente ho acquistato una Vespa 300 GTV Via Montenapoleone e devo dire che sto veramente bene.

L'unica cosa che non fa per me e 'la carenatura piccolo della serie e' quasi del tutto inutile.

Purtroppo nel catalogo accessori e 'previsto solo il parabrezza di grandi dimensioni che non mi piace.

Pero 'ho visto che "Woodenhead" postato una foto della sua Vespa, con un parabrezza di medie bella che mi piace molto esteticamente.

Posso sapere cosa 'di questa marca parabrezza? Come potrei fare per lui? Dove posso ordinare?
Ha attacchi specifici per la Vespa GTV O 'necessità di apportare modifiche per il montaggio?

Questo è 'un'altra foto del parabrezza stesso se non mi sbaglio e in basso a sinistra è un logo che dovrebbe essere la marca, ma non riesco a leggere bene ...

http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/8521/dsc05701002yw0.jpg

Grazie a tutti ea presto, Antonio.

Post scriptum: mi dispiace il mio inglese molto educativo!
