Ordered them from the dealer I bought the bike from. - Romney Cycles.
P No: 2BS-F83M0-V0-00 
WIND DEFLECTORS ST  $82 (after tax)

ebay options out there - but mainly from UK - long lead time and these are OEM - so pulled the trigger on these. Look good. Work better. :)

Thanks!  I'll be contacting my local, friendly Yamaha dealer today!! :)

Upcoming $$ drains:

  • - AltRider Stainless Steel Black Headlight Protector
  • - Skid plate. With ACD now AWOL the only good front and back frame mounted skid plate would be Jaxon's Boulder Buster from RideOnADV.
  • - Panniers - Looking to the new Semi-Rigids from LoneRider - kinda one and done set?

The bike’s getting to be an Alt-Rider frequent flier. First the upper and lower Crash Guards and now the headlight guard. Stainless steel, laser cut grill design, with a quick pop-on pop-off design. The Guard sits, snugly held in place by Rubber Grommets, on Ball Studs.

The hardest part was installing the first grommet. Once that was the done the remaining three weren’t hard, using a blunt tool to jimmy the rubber into the hole. A little water helps it along.





What’s next ?

Update:
The original Headlight screws were already loose. Needed no effort at all to unscrew them! If the fingers could get at them, I wouldn’t have needed a screw driver.

If I could doing India on the S10 is a dream! It would be an altogether different ride as compared to the Royal Enfield 500cc ride back in 2015.

Is there a link to that rider’s blog or something ?

Never mind. Found it!

Importing one or 2nd hand?

As for what's next.. I'd say get some different tires.. at least when these wear out.

Options I'm looking at:
TKC80s
Avon Trekriders
Shinkos
And in the mix - Motoz from Australia.

I can confidently say this is the very first ACD Skid Plate after ACD set up their own shop in the US. For me, this plate is planned to be the ‘one & done’ Plate - whether I ride the slabs or go ‘off-road’. I bought the Raw Aluminium flavor instead of the powder coated black. Intention is to custom paint the plate later.

They look like they should do the job well.
I've been looking at other tire options and these are also in the running. Local Canadian supplier lists them but has shown all sizes out of stock for awhile now. Keep us posted on how they work out for you.

Next up.
Ordered a pair of windshield braces from Tom ‘Propsoto’. I have my GPS mounted on the Nav Bar. No distracting vibrations. But these braces will just help bolster the support. Added value in that Tom includes the longer hardware to use if Winglets installed.
