Depends what youre after. If you need a DB then yes, Ffabri are very good. Remember, the airflow is designed on a bike to hit you in the chest to take the weight off your wrists. If its doing that already then a DB will push the airflow right into your face. This means sore neck muscles, more noise and loads of buffeting. They only work if you spend most of your time with your chin on the tank or you are realy short and the air hits you in the face with a normal screen.

Oh, and they ruin the lines of the 9R by making the front end look too high.

hey newk, whats a madame fifi?
i think screens differ in their design etc, i found when i fitted mine my bike handles in a different way, dont ask what, cos im not sure what, i just know, maybe a bit lighter on the front end at speed? maybe wind hitting me somewhere else making me think its different, i dont know, maybee others with double bubs can add to this. :-k
mine is a skidmark db.

skidmark? thought they were to be found in one`s pants after a moist flatulant lol.
cant remember what make mine is but im gonna take it off now as im fed up off the noise in my lid so going to get a tinted standard one,plus i think db`s make the bike look tall and tourerish from the front, the standard one looks more sporty to me.


green one`s are faster!!
