    Default Painted windscreen on my R1. Will I lose range?

    Hello, I painted the inside of one of my windscreens with a flat grey spray paint, from the outside it looks nice and grey. My RD sits on the stemstand pointing forward from behined the windscreen. I read that airforce use radar similar to this, but would anyone have an opinion of this will reduce my range? It a non-metal base paint. I'll post a pic soon to give a better idea of what I did.

    If we are talking about standard spray paint like Krylon or Rustoleum you should have nothing to worry about. You would only need to pause for consideration if you used a metal flake or something, but that's not the case.

    The Laser is not as lucky.
    The paint will prevent the Laser from receiving the 904nm.

    true that, but anyone think it would be easy to laser a bike? I mean the sport bike is all stealth shaped with aerodynamic curves. Where I live there is no laser, or the LEO that I have class with wants me to think that.
