SLUK XL5 Li screen | S2/S3 Lambretta

(1 customer review)

£125.00£130.00

The SLUK XL5 screen is exclusive to SLUK and will fit Li Series 2 and Series 3 Lambrettas (not TV/SX, also some Eibar models have a larger headlight diameter than Italian S2).

This XL5 screen was inspired by the original café racer Biemme screen from the 1960s. However, we’ve updated some aspects of the original design and fitment to bring it firmly into the 21st century.

Description

Description

We made completely new tooling and redesigned the screen to simplify and improve fitment. Now there are no ugly brackets. Instead, the screen clamps around the headlight rim using a special Hi-Torque* stainless steel band fastener.

The original Biemme screens were made from 2mm plastic. Ours are made from 4mm acrylic-coated ABS material and come in a choice of high gloss black, white, silver or carbon effect and can be painted to match your scooter for that bespoke look.

Tested at over 90mph

See photos of Chris Mac’s KTMBretta 390. Chris has tested the screen for us at over 90mph. He says it “looks the bollocks”, is very steady at speed and good to crouch behind.

Assembly

It’s hardly an IKEA sideboard but there is a minor bit of home assembly required, the clear ‘cockpit’  and laser-cut stainless trim needs attaching to the main part of the screen using the 7 stainless steel bolts and nylock nuts (supplied). The metal piece sits on top of the top part of the screen.

Fitting

Fitting is simple thanks to the Hi Torque fastener which slides over the inner lip of the screen. Not only is it quick and easy to fit but it also means taking it off is simple when you need to get into the headset to change a cable or bulb.

Depending on your headlight screws, you may need to replace them with the thinner profile stainless button-head screws we supply with the screen. They allow the screen to slide over your headlight rim without forcing it.

Before fitting simply wrap a length of decent quality electrical tape (Gaffa tape, or 3M tape gives good adhesion and is thick enough to allow the Hi-Torque fitting to grip firmly) around your headlight rim and any painted areas that the screen touches. The tape serves to protect the paintwork and also to give the gloss screen a good surface to grip on to. Simply slide the screen over the headlight rim and tighten the clip, either using a screwdriver or socket.

Adjustment

The design has been trimmed for a better fit around the legshields. However, if your scooter has an embellisher, thicker legshield rubber or master cylinder fitted, you may just need to trim the screen slightly at home to clear it.
Extra security?

If you want to make fitting more secure you can drill holes through the jubilee clip so that the original headlight screws can be used to secure the screen.

* Hi-Torque fasteners can be tightened to 15Nm (approximately 3 times tighter than a traditional hose clip) however over-tightening risks damage to the screen. We recommend you periodically tighten the band to ensure the screen remains firmly fixed.

* We recommend that a single layer of electrical tape is applied to the headset before fitting the screen if you do not want the paint to become marked during use.

    I’d all but given up on a screen for my Series 3 LI. Then the XL5 came along and saved the day. Really easy to fit and remove. It’s strong and looks well. Considering the poor alternatives for the LI series of Lambretta, this is excellent.

    I wrote a more detailed review here.
