The new fairing arrived today and Its looking good. The colour looks a great match for my bike
The only problem is that because it has a black tinted screen it could mask the speedo.

I cant wait to try and fit it.

Yes, curious what it looks like over the nacelle.

Well its on but I'm not really happy with the angle its mounted at
I had no idea how to mount it initially and tried to keep the brackets supplied so I cut more off the bottom of the fairing than needed.
I got away with because of me having the headlamp cowling.
Once I figured I could use the bolts under the head light for the mountings I now know to cut away less plastic and mount it further back.
I can extend the mounting under the headlight and change the angle - I will look at doing that tomorrow.
I could finish up with a selection of angles

Looks pretty good as is! Somewhere out there's a nekkid R90S crying itself to sleep... ;D

I suspect it would be a better fit if you removed the headlamp peak form the outer headlamp rim. It's a pointless accessory, particularly now with your fairing in place.
