Since be­stow­ing nearly £2k worth of Yamaha’s Café Racer ac­ces­sories on the XSR, the messy gap be­tween the bars and head­light has started to wind me right up! I didn’t re­ally like the look of the of­fi­cial Yamaha screens, but have seen much talk about Puig screens (www.puig.tv) on fo­rums. They’re not cheap, but look smart. I wanted the Cock­pit screen for the XSR, but the Span­ish firm are a cou­ple of weeks away from get­ting th­ese on sale. So I went for the Front Board (£84.99). It’s well-made, sturdy and I got it in place within 10 min­utes. It doesn’t re­ally of­fer any wind pro­tec­tion, but that’s not why I got it. I got it to fin­ish off the look and tidy the front end.

Andy’s No1. It says so on his Yamaha
