I was riding home in the rain yesterday (AGAIN), the rain was coming up from the front wheel, back wheel, every direction really. Anyway I couldn't read the screen because of the muck on it and thought it was probably a good idea to be able to know what speed I was doing as there are a lot of speed cameras on this road, so I wiped the screen with my gloves, as you do.
Today I was washing the bike and noticed a few scratches on the screen that could have only been caused when I wiped it. A lot of polish and elbow grease and I have nearly removed them. So if you are in the same situation be careful as the screen scratches very easily as I found out.

Managed to scratch mine in rain too!

Screen protector? Specifically for the SS??
Might help to find something self healing since sometimes all that's required is heat from your finger to get rid of the scratch. Had one for my phone and don't regret it one bit.

I bought a screen protector on eBay! ;)
Thanks Colin for mentioning and Dany regarding the protector.

Have you received and installed it yet? Does it fit well, look ok, and not interfere with the viewing screen?

When I ordered my SuperSport I bought screen protector and I applicated on immediately when she arrived in my garage.
The screen protector fit perfectly and there isn't difference with the view. It works very well!
I don't see mirror protection... normally it's an harder surface and it's difficult to scratch. Maybe your mirror is only dirt...

Ordered a set as well. This was kinda a big issue over on the Hyper site. Those screens scratched very easy!! I've been super careful with this one as a result. This protector will make it care free, hopefully.

Speedo Angels, non reflective and its stunning even in bright sunshine. The guy is a Ducati owner and member of other forums.

Ideally the saver would be easier to fit if it was one or two millimetres smaller than the actual screen. But if you remember its full size it helps you to make sure you start at the actual edge when applying it.

Can they be removed easily without damaging the face of the stock screen? IDK if I'd ever need to, so just a question at the moment.

There is a product to repair scratches on this displays, its named Xerapol, now its sold under Quixx brand (Ive also heard about Displex product, but never try). I tried on my BMW 3 series dashboard (special thanxs to oficial bmw distributor, they did a great scratch on a regular maintenance service) and the scratches disapear, apply it with a very soft cotton cloth or cotton disc (like the ones that women use for clean make up). After this, dasboard protector is a great option I bought the speedo angels in mate finish.

If you need to remove them, its the same as a phone protector, stick a strip of Sellotape across the edge and gently pull. Simples.
