  1. Tripmaster acrylic screen discoloured and scratched..

    Africa Twin
    The acrylic screen on my RD 07 Tripmaster is discoloured, and shows signs of tiny cracks. As a result I am unable to read the Tripmaster clearly whilst I am riding. Is there anyway I can polish the screen to get rid of the scratches? Thanks folks. Honda XRV 750 RD 07 Honda XLV 700B
