I’ve fit­ted the of­fi­cial ac­ces­sory screen (£85) to the Street Triple RS with ut­ter ease us­ing two Allen keys from the un­der­seat tool kit. It fits great, looks great and is def­i­nitely a qual­ity item. Af­ter a fly-splat­ting ride to Don­ing­ton Park World Su­per­bikes, a 120-mile round trip, I have to say that while the screen isn’t a game-changer when it comes to less­en­ing the wind blast at mo­tor­way speeds, it of­fers gen­tle re­lief from the pres­sure on your torso and is a wel­come ad­di­tion to the 765 RS. I look for­ward to see­ing how the screen per­forms on some longer jour­neys I have planned for the sum­mer. Mean­while, the Speed Triple con­tin­ues to im­press as the mileage tips over the 2000 mark.
