Windshield Mod?

Hey guys, i really want to paint or do something to my windshield to make it black, but i really dont wanna buy a 60$ windshield and i really dont like the look of the double bubble personally, so i thought why not do somethin with my stock one. I thught maybe spray paint but that would look kind of crappy i think im not sure, but any ideas guys? anything to make it look godo and clean, i really dont mind if i cant see out of it.

Thanks,
Pawel

I got a Lockhart Phillips dark smoke standard, not double bubble, for under $50 from my local Honda dealer. It looks great, big improvement. I even got another one for my wife's SV650S.

you can paint the inside of it black and it will look good on the outside guaranteed.

oh really? thats really cheap, ya ill have to def check that out then, because i love the look of the black screen, but i dont wanna spend so much money on it and have it be the double bubble. If i can do somethin to it i might do that what do you guys think spray paint and clear coat would look like? any good or probably not?

I'd suggest a semiflat paint on the inside, it's easier to get a nice finish and will still look glossy on the outside of the screen.
Be aware though that scratches will still show up, maybe even more so.

You could make it removable by using a black vinyl on the inside of the screen. Then if you don't like it, remove the vinyl.

I painted the inside of mine a few years back and it looks fine. I just used regular semi-gloss black spray paint.

Check Ebay. I've gotten a couple of those $30 or less screens for a few bikes. I don't think I ever got one of the Hong Kong ones, but the cheapos from the US are fine and fit well. Zero Gravity also has factory seconds on Ebay for decent prices, while not perfect to their standards, most are hard to find major flaws in. By major flaws I don't mean broken, cracked, deformed or stuff like that, just very minor flaws like ever so light surface scratches that are easily waxed and buffed out. Rattle canning the inside of the stocker works too though.

just visit a local automotive window tint shop.
They can install "black" tint to the backside of the screen, shouldn't cost more than $20. Or get "DIY" tint material and do it yourself for about $10.
