Hey guys...newbie question for you...i bought my scooter used and the windshield has like micro scratches all through it and it's a little foggy...is this just oxidation and if so, is there a way to clear it up? The microscratches aren't a super big deal but I guess it all boils down to how well should I be able to see out of my windshield? Is it just for wind protection or should I actually expect to be able to see the road in front of me through it? If the answer is that I should expect to see through it and there's no way to make it clearer, where can I get a new shield? How much are they? Are they hard to install?

It's a lot at once, but i'm trying to minimize wasting people's time on one issue.

Thank you

hold on to the wind screen and back out the 650, drive a new 400 underneath, then remove the windscreen and install a new givi screen and the problem is solved!

Just kidding , welcome to the forum and don't worry about wasting our time , we're here to waste time before going home to our other halves who will force us to take out the trash and other nasty things like telling them that dress doesn't make them look fat

Replacing the windshield is easy. You can get OEM screens from Suzuki or you can buy aftermarket ones from a number of different manufactures. Most of the aftermarket screens are larger and to some extent address the buffeting issue the stock screen suffers from. OEM screens from Suzuki dealers run $400+. Aftermarket screens vary from around $150 to $300+ depending on model and options.

As other mentioned, micro scratches can often be buffed out using one of the restoration products on the market. They can be avoided in the first place by using good cleaning practices. Rinsing the dust off the screen before you wipe it and not using paper towels to clean the windshield are two of the better things you can do to prevent them.
