Well if you're not looking for a different style windscreen then i'd say go to your local O'reillys or similar auto parts story and buy plastic spray paint and paint it yourself, thats what i did.

I've got the dark black one on my 07 SVS. I like it, and you can still partially see through it if you're tucked. I don't have any pictures, but I ordered mine from Newenough.com

Zero Grav double bubble dark smoke.
If you wear a tinted visor it's pretty tough to see through during the day, and darn near imposable at night.

I don't get why you would even need to look through the windscreen, i understand if you're racing it, but the only time i'm ever looking through it is when i'm flat on the tank and even then i look over it not through it (and when i'm flat on the tank i'm usually doing over 100, and that's not very often)

Ride a SV1000 at 160+mph and then you will understand why you will need to look through the windscreen! :) To the OP.....go with the Dark Smoked.

But even at extremely high speed you shouldn't be looking that close to your bike, you should be looking at whats coming up in the road, not whats directly in front of you.

I've found that even in full tuck I can kinda see over my screen. It's a good thing too, because combined with my dark-smoke EXO-700 and my dark-smoke ZG DB, it's like night time.

In other news, I think my Zero Gravity Double Bubble in dark-smoke was the single most effective cosmetic mod on my bike. I'll post a pic later.

Lol....ummm...thats the whole point of looking through the windscreen, whats coming up and whats in front. Stop being a sissy by peeking over the windscreen! :)

Here is my ZG Double Bubble in dark smoke. Huge improvement over stock in the looks dept., slightly less of an improvement in aero department.

I mean I had issues with my EXO-700 being noisy because of the windblast from the stock shield hitting me right under the chin-bar. Air would enter my helmet and it was really loud.

I was hoping the DB would help, and it did. It raised the windblast, but only slightly. Now it's quieter, but not as much of an improvement as I was hoping for. It still hits me about visor level now.

However, there is more room to tuck in. I'm 6' 1" BTW.
