I'm considering this and having it fitted when my F850GS is PDIed

Is the Perspex protector screwed onto the mounting frame or is it a quick release pull off?

Many thanks

Mike

Is it just my strange nature? Does anyone else wonder at the reasoning we protect our polycarbonate headlight lens with a piece of polycarbonate?  :084:
Particularly the BMW version.
If the protector is constructed of such a high grade of polycarbonate to offer protection. Why not make the original light fitting out of the same?  :187:

Now you gotta buy a piece of plastic to protect the plastic that protects the lamp  :087:

But truthfully, it's just another layer of protection.

I'd be interested to hear if someone's protective cover has ever come in handy (as in, it cracked thus saving the headlight).
As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.

Found the answer to my question in Post 10

The Perspex shield is QD
