  1. only my opinion,,, From your pic the screen looks mounted tight against the bracket. The key to reducing turbulence (and thundering in your helmet) is getting wind flow under & behind the screen. California Scientific and Madstad screens employ this technique. Cal Sci's explanation in section titled Aerodynamics: Motorcycle Fairings and Windshields
  2. Went to my Harbor Freight looking for a "security torx". Actually, called "tamper proof" in my store.
  3. Sargent update Aug 15: Tracer 900 / 900 GT 2019+ COMING SOON! Currently in Research & Development and slated for a late August / early September 2019 release. (During a recent fitting, we found another adjustment that required another part be designed and produced.)
  4. Same here; tried the touring screen and it was very noisy in my helmet. I'm 5'9" and got the 22" clear Madstad (per their recommendation). After about 4 or 5 adjustments I found the optimum position for me. Couldn't be happier!
  5. Having dropped my key while trying to find the ignition switch in the black void, I decided to extend my key. I found a screen door strike plate and a screw post at my local hardware store and added some Velcro for grip. Works pretty good! Makes the key longer and grippier and can be folded up.
  6. Ordered my 2019 Tracer with the Yamaha touring screen. It wasn't good: lots of buffeting and helmet noise. Tried spacing it out from the mounting plate. Tried shortening it. Then, gave up and put on a Madstad screen. Problem solved! The engineering that puts airflow behind the screen, plus the angle & height adjust-ability makes for a screen that you can dial-in to fit you.
  7. I had some custom silicone plugs made for me at a MOA rally several years ago. SOLID EARPLUGS custom made ear plugs for motorcycle sports, sleeping, surfing...
  8. RE: 2019+ Tracer 900 / 900 GT Email from Dane at Sargent dated July 31, "We should have the Tracer seat ready in the next 3 to 6 weeks from what I hear last. This is barring any setbacks of course. We were unfortunately not ready for the late July release we were hoping for."
  9. wanderer, What's the part number and where did you get them?
  10. I tinkered with my screen, too: spacers, cutting, etc. Decided to get a Madstad. Couldn't be happier! Worth the money!
  11. Traded my 2012 BMW R 1200 RT for a new 2019 Tracer 900 GT last autumn. I've been looking for an active forum; looks like I found it! R.C.
