    Default Pulsar 200 NS - Windscreen DIY

    Have been looking for a visor for my Naked Pulsar 200 NS for some time now...The ones available are quite expensive so decided to do some jugaad and \"make\" one myself. I closed on the Fazer visor as it (IMHO) gels better than other visors from sports bikes with the NS\' headlamp. I purchased it from a spare parts shop in Grant Road for 270/-. Other visors you could try experimenting with that may look good on the NS are the Honda CBR 250 and the Yamaha R15 visors although the Fazer one is the tallest. The metal strips used to fix it to the bike (L shaped aluminum strips), nuts and bolts and black spray paint can available at any hardware store.

    Below are the cost of the Yamaha Fazer visor & other stuff used to fix it. Flattened the \"L\" shaped aluminum strips, got it screwed to the bolts on the bracket below the black stock \"visor\". Bent the strips to come out of the little gap that\\\'s between the headlight and stock visor and screwed the strip to the visor. Realized that it would probably break at high speeds without additional support due to the wind so added another aluminum strip on either side to the visor and screwed it below the Allen bolts on the sides of the instrument console. Spray painted the silver strips over with black paint. Spray painted over the silver brackets with black paint and it looks a lil better now.

    Expenses:
    Yamaha Fazer visor = 270/-
    Nuts, bolts + Aluminum L shaped strips for support = 60/-
    Labour = 150/-
    Tip = 10/-
    Spray = 190/-
    Total Expenses = 680/-

    Was supposed to remove the visor once I returned from my recent trip to Malwan but realized it helps deflect the cold winds in the mornings when returning from work recently. While riding home a couple of days ago at about 6 in the morning, there was a real chill in the breeze. Although I was wearing a jacket, helmet & gloves, was still feeling quite cold. Hugged the tank more closely and crouched below the visor...made a huge difference. Was immediately more comfortable and thanked the visor for helping make the small ride a little better.

    A couple of friends feel that the bike looks better with the visor while a few have yelled at me for \"spoiling the naked looks\\\" of the bike.

    I personally feel it adds to the aggressive looks of the NS...and more importantly is functional

    Am on the look out for a little bigger visor that gels well with the bike\'s looks and that adds a little more protection against wind blasts...Crossing my fingers

    I know this isn\'t the best solution as there are MRA windscreens available for naked sports bikes but with them starting at about 8000/- the Fazer visor along with the little bits to fix it at below 1k is way cheaper.

    Your feedback and criticism is welcome but please don\\\'t be too harsh as this is my first attempt

    Good that you tried to overcome the wind blast in naked bike which may be irritating most of the times. Make sure the custom clamps you use are sturdy.

    Hi bro,

    Good mod. Try to cover the last open holes with nut and bolts. Not necessary to use clamps. Just fix them. It will look awesome and the mod will be complete..

    Regards,
    Srinivas

    Thanks for the encouraging words

    Will be replacing the visor with the CBR 150CC one as it is a little broader and so should offer better protection from winds at high speeds. Imho, it looks better than the Fazer visor that I have used here.

    Not that I ride in excess of 125 kmph or anything but the wind blast without the windshield can get really annoying and tiring on long rides.

    Btw, have recently fixed the KTM Duke 390 knuckle guards on my NS to keep my fingers from cramping in the cold and also to save my fingers in case of a fall. Will post the pics on the NS ownership page soon

    Ride safe & Take care

    Thanks for your kind and encouraging words

    I am still trying to find the CBR 150 windscreen...All the shops that I have inquired did not have it...To top it off, the shopkeepers give me weird looks cuz the bike I've arrived in is the NS.. :P Will look for it a lil more aggressively & post an update once done..

    Btw, The Pulsar AS200 is expected to be launched tomorrow (My birthday incidentally) & the bike is supposed to have a factory fitted Windshield...Hoping it looks good and is effective. If it is, may pick up that screen as well...

    Wind gets buffeted around the shoulders and helmet. But the best part is improvement in sitting posture at high speeds. That is upright. Slight improvement in mileage at higher speeds( 90 -100).

    can we fit the New As200's windshield in NS?? DIY Experts, please shed some light here. It would look awesome and gel with the bike.
