    It's as if I have a new bike.

    My 2018 Speedmaster came with the standard touring screen. It has had a lot of criticism, but I found it ok. I figured I wouldn't be doing any long range trips in the next few months so I removed it. The handling is so much better, and the look of the bike is improved.

    None of this will be a surprise to you, it is just physics but not riding around with a plastic sail on the front of the bike has been a revelation.

    It may never go back on!

    I find little Dart screen gives the bike a good look and buffers some wind. Makes a great place to stow your gloves too.

    So. Forgive my ignorance but I'd like to remove mine also - like a newb I've not been able to get it off. Removed the allen screws but the thing appears welded on. Do you also need to remove the torx screw, looks like the circular attachments should prize lose but they don't seem to.

    Love to hear how easy it was to remove.
    Cheers!

    Got an older America, but I've never put a screen on it. That is the bike I ride when I have the need to be "in the wind" as the saying goes. ...J.D.

    My T100 (aka Annie) came to me with a large genuine Triumph touring screen. Thankfully, although it looked like a moustache drawn on the Mona Lisa! :rolleyes:
    It was worth a few quid. Selling it financed the purchase of a pair of TOR cans :)

    Hi Phil,

    The only reason I think that it appears to be "welded on".
    Is because the rubber used between the clamps has become sticky (for want of a better word)
    How old is your bike? I'm just trying to establish how long the screen has been on there & therefore how old the rubbers might be?

    Welcome to the forum BTW.
    Go to the newbie section & introduce yourself mate. I guarantee you a warm Triumph Forum style welcome :)

    Phil, it was very easy to remove. Simply an allen key t loosen the fixing screws; the circular attachments remain on the bike.
