I have successfully fitted a Speedmaster (touring) windshield to my Bobber Black and wanted to share how I accomplished this. Full disclosure - due to snow I have not test ridden it yet.
Concept & History:
I have always been on the fence with full size windshields, going back and forth as to whether or not I like them. Well last year on a road trip I rode 500 miles in one day, much at high speed which got a little uncomfortable, so started to think a windshield may be a good addition. Couple that with 'everything is bigger in America' including the bugs..
Two hit me last year, onc giving me a black eye (hit just above my shades) and the other actually drew blood (hitting me in the cheek). Hence I've pondered a windshield.
So I liked the look of the Speedmaster touring windshield but due to the fact the forks on the Bobber Black are larger in diameter, it was clear it would not fit. Not deterred I got one anyway and started looking to modify it. I found the perfect brackets in the Motone wrap-around 47mm turn signal brackets. A quick call to Brian at A&J who hooked me up to four (two pairs).
The Motone brackets are much higher quality than the OEM ones. Also they are 'wrap-around', so there is no need to remove the forks from the yokes. Due to the design they do require placing the windshield slightly further back which I find is not an issue.
I have fitted the windshield with just cheep nuts/bolts to prove the concept and now I know it works I will order some nicer fittings.
In short Triumph says that this screen will not fit the Bobber Black and is not compatible with high bars. With a little ingenuity wrong on both accounts.
That's another winter mod done (once I get some nicer fittings) and another one I'm looking to try out as soon as it thaws.
