Nope. Not as yet. Piggy bank is still not full. Dont think will put the exhaust and the Woolich until mid next year.

Kill me for this but I kinda like the way the stock exhaust sounds past 8000 rpm when the servo valve opens up and the engine goes into crazy mode. But yeah, some more power is always welcome

So while i was shopping for the cowl on ebay, i happened to bump onto another product which seemed quite nifty and thought what the hell, lets try it.

Presenting the Motoskin scratch protector film for your motorcycle meter console. Now its not rocket science, just the same stuff as your regular cellphone scratch protector film but someone made a business out of cutting it into shape and size for automobile consoles.

Paid $16 for it and it shipped for free and landed at my doorstep in about 2 weeks.

Installation was simple stuff and the product finish and clarity is good. Hope it stays on for a while and keeps the screen free of scratches which mostly happen thanks to dust and grime.

OCD much?? Maybe !! :P

P.S- the yellow tint is only the top layer which is removed on installation. The actual film is clear in finish.

I must admit its the first time I ve seen a guard for a motorcycle console. Although i have seen local blokes getting the screen on their bikes (not super bikes) covered with a clear screen guard at accessory stores.
As far as the one for the console goes, never really felt the need for it but when the pennies are less no harm in trying out I guess.

I was gonna get the exact same thing for the my Z. It was the orange color one - but I never knew the actual screen protector is a transparent one. Think I should but it now.

Check the product description on the site properly before you buy. There are tinted ones (green, orange, blue etc) also available. The description for this said clear hence i bought it.

Varun keep a close watch on the degradation of that scratch guard when it gets exposed to heat. I have a feeling it will turn yellowish after prolonged exposure to sun and might be difficult to remove it later.

I have seen some old P220's used to have such film on the odometer and owners never removed it causing it degrade.

In any case, if it works well even after prolonged use, I would love to see more products on these lines for motorcycles.
