Bodywork / Recommend a double bubble screen for a J1?
October 09, 2014, 05:02:56 PM
Since getting my J1 back on the road I've noticed a lot of wind blast on the dual carriageways, so I was wondering if anyone can recommend/ post a picture of a good double bubble screen on the bike?

Hello MCNninjas, I've just rejoined the site after many many many years away, and I've rejoined as a born again biker,  :undecided:, there I've said it.  I've had a green J1 from new, but 9 years ago I sorned it, (baby forces sorn!!).  I was determined not to sell it, because I knew that if I did, it'd be a lot harder to get another bike, so 2 children later, and after being buried under bin bags full of shredded paper, and wedged between a garage door and a series 1 land rover, in my dads garage for 9 years, I felt the time was right to get it back on the road, that and the fact I'd had a stoooopid busy/ sh*t month at work, which meant a big pay cheque, whivh I didn't want to waste on expensive but necessary crap that normally needs spending on when you have a good paycheck, (damn you diesel particulate filter!!!!).  I took it down to a local bike mechanic, in a rather sorry state, (I did manage to get rid of the mouse in the battery box though), and asked him to get it back to fighting fit.  Nothing major has been done, the flaky wheels were powdered coated, the Devil Magnum can had 6 inches cut out of it, some shiny Harris folding levers have been fitted, braided hoses and the horrible 80's pink neon Ninja stickers have been removed.  I love it, before I sorned I was always a bit "meh" about it, but now I always take a look over my shoulder.  :grin: :grin: :grin:
