Dorset based aftermarket accessory manufacturer Skidmarx, have been concentrating on super-tourers of late. They now offer a tall screen for Yamaha’s newest version of FJR1300, and Moto Guzzi’s Norge.
Made from acrylic sheet, the Skidmarx screen is 10 cm taller than the factory fitted Yamaha item and 6.5cm taller than standard on the Moto Guzzi. In both cases the screen is designed as a direct replacement for the original, so the original fittings can be used and no specialist tools or skills are required. This means that electronic height adjustment on the FJR still functions.
FJR owners can choose between a clear screen and a version with a light tint, both priced at £69.95, but Guzzi Norge owners also get the option of dark tint. Guzzi screens however are only £59.95. Cheaper, no doubt, because they’re that bit shorter!Skidmarx are also producing a hugger for the FJR1300A.
Also made in Britain, but from light weight GRP in a high gloss black finish, it weighs just 675 grams and is supplied with a bike-specific specific fitting kit, which enables mounting from existing points, so again, no modification is required. The GRP hugger sells for £84.95 and an even lighter carbon fibre option retails at £144.95.
