So I’ve been wanting to mount my Power Vision to the bike in a semi permanent location that looked decent. I started off trying a RAM mount connected to the brake reservoir but I didn’t care for the look. Ended up making a bracket to mount right above my gauge cluster. I think it turned out pretty well. It’s also nice that being behind the windshield will provide a bit of protection from the elements.

Hey that looks great! I also have the power vision, but mine is mounted on the right side of the handlebars on a ram type mount. Yours looks much better and is inline with the other gauges. May have to borrow this idea but doubt I could make it look that good.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a try and if it's too flat I can adjust it to be more vertical.
I see the option is there to do it if needed with a tab bend. Other side benefit is the screen will vibrate less more vertical. I must say, in bright sunlight that thing is a bitch to see sometimes even straight up.

Looks good! What kind of windshield set up is that? And would it work with a budman riser?


I have budman risers on my bike so yes. The windshield is a cheap eBay one I bought and cut down to the size I wanted.

That windshield mounting frame is definately Windvest. I have used them before. The screen itself has been cut down and modified. On my DX, I used the lower bar mounting brackets from my old Windvest and while the shield itself was useless I took the frame off and made my PV bracket to mount to the bar mounts. They did however need some serious twisting to work with the slanted bars on my DX.

Thanks for the help guys, I just bought a 13 muscle and I put a fuel pack and a k&n air filter on it. It already had vance&Hines competition slip ons but run rough until I added the fuel pac..now I'm getting ready to order the budman riser and was wanting to add some type of windscreen to it and just not sure which set-up would fit?

Budman makes an adaptor kit for screens in addition to his risers.

From there, you can modify or fabricate to make the shields work.

If you're using the H-D screen (or at least the H-D hardware) with nothing but the Budman riser, his fix will work.

If you want to run a late-model DX visor (2012-2017), a Budman riser and the H-D screen (or hardware), you'll want to use Budman's "adaptor posts" for the top, but you'll have to fabricate/modify hardware for the clamps on the bottom.

Here's a link I just posted describing the process and showing images: http://www.1130cc.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4699162&postcount=8

Wanting to do the same on my VRSCF. What gauge metal did you use and where did you get it? Thanks

I just bought a small sheet of 16 gauge sheet metal at Lowes. Cut the rough shape with a jig saw with a metal cutting blade. Then used a belt sander and file to fine tune the rest. After it was all cut I bent it by putting it in my workbench mounted vise then finished it with a coat of semi gloss black spray paint.

I believe that if you go more then .091 3/32" the screws will be too short to mount the unit, so you'd be looking for longer ones. Not that it matters, I used some scrap .091 aluminum I had laying around from my aircraft days. 16 gauge steel is fine to as was mentioned.

I made a custom mount for the Power Vision on my Muscle. It is a one piece gauge cluster bezel and mount for the Power Vision, made of ABS plastic. It replaces the stock gauge bezel. Message me if you would be interested in one for you bike.

Looks good. As you know I have my own mount but curious in the process with ABS that you used?
