Why would I want to fit a screen protector kit?
Our answer to that would be “why wouldn’t you?”. Modern motorcycle dashboard screens tend to be made from plastic and they are extremely easy to scratch by a quick wipe of your glove or a drop of your keys. It doesn’t take a lot to damage these screens. Our kits provide excellent protection against scratches and marks to your precious (and expensive!) dashboard. They help retain resale value and in extreme circumstances could prevent the dashboard unit from failing completely. I’ve not priced up a new motorcycle LCD or TFT dashboard, but I’m guessing they’re not cheap!
Our kits come in ultra-clear – for those who wish to ‘fit and forget’ – and also in anti-glare which helps to reduce reflections and glare to increase visibility.
Our kits are very good value for money and we ship worldwide for free!
Do they reduce visibility?
Our screen protectors come in two variants. There is the ultra-clear version which once applied will be hard to spot unless you are looking for it. They do not reduce visibility at all.
We also sell ‘anti-glare’ protectors. These use an anti-glare coating which is slightly matte in its finish. They do not have the same ultra-clear finish and remove the ‘glossy’ look that the plastic cover on LCD dashboards have. Some people prefer this to the ultra-clear protector as they feel it helps increase the clarity of the screens. These anti-glare screen protectors work best on the colour LCD screens such as those found on the Ducati 1199/1299 Panigale. Whether you would prefer the matte finish or ultra clear is up to you, but we offer both so you can choose.
Are they easy to fit?
Yes. However preparation is key here. Ensure you follow the supplied instructions carefully and also make sure you clean your dashboard thoroughly before applying the screen protector. You might end up with one or two tiny bubbles but once you fire up your bike you won’t notice these anyway. Just make sure you remove as much dust/dirt from your screen first and then applying the protector should be a piece of cake.
Please see our instructional video below which shows the fitting process…

What is an ‘extra fitting kit’?
On all of our product pages you will see that you can add ‘extra fitting kits’ to your order. All of our kits come with a fitting kit, these are the accessories you use to fit your screen protector. A kit includes a squeegee card, cleaning cloth and a sticky dust removal strip. The sticky dust removal strips are single-use and it also also easy to lose or mislay the other parts of the fitting kit, so we give our customers the option of purchasing extra fitting kits.
Why can’t I buy just one screen protector?
All of our screen protector kits come with at least two screen protectors and we are asked fairly often why we don’t sell kits with a single screen protector. The main reason is that although they are simple to fit, it is easy for something to happen during the fitting process meaning you aren’t happy with the finished result. It could be a bit of dust that’s got stuck, or a bubble that won’t budge. Imagine how frustrating it would be to have received your kit only to be disappointed with the end result. With our kits you have the option of giving it a second go, or if you fitted your protector perfectly first time round then you have a spare which you can use at a later date, or give to a friend, or put on ebay etc…
What is the difference between Ultra-Clear and Anti-Glare?
We offer both Ultra-Clear and Anti-Glare protectors across our entire product range. There is sometimes a little confusion with our customers as to what the differences are, so hopefully the below explanation will help.
Ultra-Clear – Provides scratch resistance and protection whilst being almost invisible once applied. A ‘fit and forget’ product.
Anti-Glare – Provides the same scratch resistance and protection as our Ultra-Clear protectors, but also helps to remove the glare/reflections associated with LCD/TFT dashboards. Anti-glare protectors have a ‘matte’ appearance once fitted.
Below is an image that shows a Yamaha R1 2015+ TFT dashboard fitted with and without an anti-glare protector to show you the difference. The lower dashboard has an anti-glare screen protector fitted and you can immediately see the reduction in glare/reflections. The photographs were taken within a few minutes of each other in bright, warm conditions…
How do I know your screen protectors will fit my bike?
We take great care to ensure that our screen protectors fit accurately and that we have listed the correct protector for your model. We never release a product for sale until we are certain that the fitment is as accurate as it can be.
Generally Ducati retains the same dashboard shape for their entire model range, even if the dashboard displays themselves change. For example the Panigale LCD dashboard fitted to the 899 and 959 is the same shape as the TFT dashboard fitted to the 1199 and 1299. The same goes for the Ducati Monster range so the new 797 shares the same dashboard shape as the new colour TFT dashboard on the 1200R and therefore uses the same screen protector.
