NEW Kawasaki Large Screen for the 2017 model
« on: April 07, 2017, 08:52:16 AM »
I just noticed that Kawasaki have a new large windshield for the 2017 model. It is different from he previous touring model and Kawasaki claim to have designed and produced the screen themselves.

It's worth noting that it's design appears to prevent the use of a GPS mount on the windshield mounts and hence the new GPS mount theyr aoffering that is mounted on the handlebars.

Thanks for the notice. It seems well designed (and very expensive too).

Oops :lostit: I've ordered the larger screen with my new bike and asked them to mount the SW-Motech bracket over the clocks... I'm supposed to get the bike next week, let's see how they get on mounting that bracket......

The new windscreen is sold only for MY 2017, but from installation instructions (which for some mysterious reason can be found on the .com site, but not on .co.uk, nor on .it) the mount seems exactly the same of MY 2015.
Do you think the 2017 large screen can be installed on 2015 bike?
Obviously, I'm not interested in the GPS mount.

I think you will find that the mounting holes (4) of the 2017 screen are larger diameter than on the 2015   :002:

I've asked my dealer: the support is the same for 2015 and 2017 and new bolts and nuts for the 4 holes are in the package.
So I've ordered it. Will report if I meet problems.

The screen on my 2017 bike features rubber grommets and top hat spacers through the four screen mounting holeds

I'll be interested to see if yours fits okay  :028:
