    Gemini flash screen

    I Need to replace the screen on my flash, does any one know if they make a "touring" Type screen, the ones that Ive seen on later trikes look good,and I think help with the aerodynamics....

    I got one from Morris screens, a bit ???? and made no difference to the wind,just inter feared with the lower wing wires.
    They are only about 9ins wide.

    Others will be along shortly with a link hopefully.
    And other will say how nice they are.

    some of the screens ive seen are like a figure 8 sort of shape which i presume is to allow for the wing wires etc ..

    Heard a story of an air cooled two-stroke developing over-heating problems after fitting a touring screen to the trike, because it affected the airflow over the engine.

    As Jon says the screen is easily made and fitted. Last time I looked there was lots of Lexan on ebay. Lexan is easy to cut with a jigsaw. I have had no issue with an overheating. If you try flying with a screen you wont go back

    Cheers
    oops (again)

    Had a Morris screen on my Alpha for years...never noticed any difference in the engine temps (aircooled 503)...but it does a fantastic job of keeping the wind blast off your upper body and face...if I feel the need I can now flip up my visor without fear of the wind ripping it off...re the lower rigging wires I just slide some plastic tube protectors over the wires...so the screen now rubs on them.

    Helps to reduce wind noise on the radio as well.

    Unless its a Morris screen you may have probs getting a mod for it...not sure about that though.

    Nick.
