  • Double Bubble or Standard??

    I just ordered a double bubble screen, and I am wondering, what is your guys opinions....I always used double bubbles on my gixxers, and I thought they looked better than standard height...but I am unsure if doubles look better on TLR's....any comments or pics would help ease my worries

    double bubble is way better imo. first off you can read your clocks better, second it keeps the wind off better and third it looks a whole lot better. my sig shows the powerbronze black double bubble.

          Dark smoked DB on a TLS (any color) looks great, but the best on the Silver one
          Just a few mods:

          Silver, the fastest color!

          On the inside - HID type bulbs, K&N filter, Iridium ix plugs, 16T front sprocket, Coerce billet sprocket cover, Yosh re-map +5, +5, +5 11 o'clock, Scorpio SE-i500 system from my GB and an ATRE.

          On the outside - TLR forks, front carbon fender, 5/8th master brake cylinder, black SS brake lines (frnt & rear), braking waves all around with Ti bolts, Brembo gold front calipers & a busa gold rear caliper, flush mount signals (frnt & rear), ZG DB scr

              DB seems a little too bulky:dunno and it changes the whole look

              Very functional though

                I like my DB from Hammerit, but I think I am going to change back to stock for a bit. I like them both but for very different reasons.

                  This seems to be a trend with the tiller's liking the standard screen...

                    A tinted standard one looks beter IMO. Really liked the double bubble on my ZX9,and loved the wind protection,but it just looks to high on the TLR. I never had a problem seeing my gauges either,the guys that complain about this must be really tall!

                        i really liked the double bubble on my TLS. It lookes good and functioned well but on my tlr it looks ugly. I have a Lockhart blue tinted stock one on there now. I like it.

                          I'm 6'3" and with the standard screen, I can only see up to about 3k on the tach. My Suzuki racing jacket does the same thing, on the freeway, if I sit up, I won't even need the brakes.

                            Bubble

                            If your arse is to big too get down low, hten I think a Double Bubble is the way too go


                            I'm in that catagory but still prefer the standard, but with the right tint.
