Thought that looked familiar so I checked, yep is exact same as what I got on my Ural - yeah is quite good, keeps the wind pressure off my chest but helmet is up in the "airflow" so no turbulence. No apparent "leakage" onto the hands either as you say, altho I've also got plastic handguards on at the mo.

Probably the least cool and trendy of the bunch - but as a wind shield this gets my vote. Got one on my V50 that has to do a lot of winter miles.

This screen looks ideal for my 1994 Nevada. had a look on PUIG website not showing for Nevada but sure can make this screen fit. Can you remember model name / number and approximate height above headlight and where purchased. Thanks

Well it came from F2 MC where I got the Ural from. Optional extra to add on. But universal fitting I'm pretty sure. Fastens to handlebars with two clamps on rods. Height above headlamp is wherever you want to put it, this is a 7 incher I think so about 10mm to make it look like it fits. I found I had to make a small angle bracket to fix it down at the front, stops it bouncing about. HTH(?)

Oh right sorry - and the answer is - 16.5 inches.

Aka 42 cm.

If that eBay one is not actually it, it's a very close match. Dimensions shown are the same. Thumbs Up
