Damn right I have! It was on the bike when I bought it!

Me living in Europe of course. You Yanks can order one at your Aprilia dealer.

I take it you are in the US? If you are...I will tell you what I have been told by the knowledgeable denizens of this forum...just go to your dealer or a dealer and they should be able to order one for you from aprilia. It will be an exact copy of your current clear one but with a med dark smoke color. I am very happy with mine...the bike is much faster with the tinted screen.. The part number is 8139351.

Peter Pifkee makes a carbon fibre windscreen. Click here and look at the picture closest to the bottom thread.

Oh I really like that one. That is exactly what I am looking for. I did call my dealer and Aprilia wants $110 for theirs. How do I get a hold of Peter? I also like the smaller size.

The price he quoted me in the spring was £75, or about US$116. Inflation may have raised the price since then, but you can email him at pikfee@belgacom.net and ask him.

Looks like we finally have an aftermarket option. Here's the link: http://www.rsvr.net/pages/performance2.asp?type=FALCO+SCREENS
The guys at Apriliaforum are going to carry them also. I am really curious to see how well it will work. Who's going to be the first???? Please let us know the results.

Now that is nice!

Not so sure about the light cover tho - anyone know how much they reduce the emitted light?
